are Irish goods In the shops and the people

these 'cards are catching the purchaser's
eye and advising him to buy or ask for
foreign stuff. I have spoken about this
several times and the answer Is, "If we
knew where to get Irish cards we would
be glad to display them In windows and
shops." Can you give any advice in this
matter? I'd give a lot of names of busi

would vise them If they could get them, and

that the same financial terms should be

TELLS STORY OF THE MEETING
Leader of Tronble on Knlna Potem
klne Talks of Plot on
PARIS. Oct. 3. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) There are several very Inter
esting points about the account of the
mutiny on the Knlaa Potemklne which the
ringleader Mntouchenko has written for
the benefit of Russian friends here. Ma
touehenko. after having spent a few days
at Costanza. made his way to Geneva, and
thn paid a brief visit to Switxerland,
where he settled in a "cliarmlng locality,"
the exact location of which has not been
revealed. The "famous sailor" desires to
keep the retreat which he has chosen a
profound secret. But In his letters he de
clares that the mutiny was not spontan
eous, but that It hnd long been premedit
ated. Tha whole plan had long been ar
ranged several months previously at a
meeting of the revolutionary section at
Sevastopol. It had been agreed that when
the squadron started on Its spring cruise
and was making for Tendroosk. a signal
should le given from a particular ship.
The sailors would scire their carbines and
to the cry of "Long live liberty," would
proceed to the officers' quarters, kill the
bad ones and put the good ones on the
shore. Then the entire squadron would
sail to Odessa, where It would demand the
transformation of the regular army into
a national mllltla. the InatltiNlon of a
popular government and tho release of
alll of the political prisoners at Odessa.
Thus It would go from port to port. In
the Black sea, hut all of these projects
were thwarted by the Incident which led
to the mutiny on the Knlux Potemklne.
Then comes the story of the trouble
about the soup. Matourhenko lays all of
the blame on the officers. The men were
contenting themselves with bread and
water when the captain enme up and In
slstrc"'. When the order followed for those
who were ready to eat the soup to leave
the ranks only a few petty officers com
piled, and the sailors were maddened when
they heard that twenty of their number
were to be. shot. They ran off for their
carbines and soon the cry of "Long live
liberty" resounded. There was a terrible
anl decisive moment. It was a question
of life or death for the sailors or the
officers. Vokoulentchouk had been seen
loading his carbine, and a comrade who
had been doing the same thing ran after
Nenupokolef apd fired at him. Neoupo
kolef fen with his skull fractured and
the man threw his body overboard and
took up his carbine.
Having ran behind the turret he per
ceived Gulllarovskt with carbine In his
hand and Vokoulentshouk weltering In his
blood. It was Gulllarovskl who had killed
our very dear comrade. Gulllarovskl was
then shot and his body thrown Into the
CHINESE COOLIE SCANDAL
British Politics Mar Be Affected by
' Action of Miners la the
LONDON. Oct. 28.-(Spcclal Cablegram to
The Bee.)-Tho Chinese labor scandal has
now reached proportions which defy all of
Mr. ' Lyttleton's art of concealment or
mitigation. The Dally Mall has been pub
lishing special" dispatches "from Johannes
burg under the significant title of "Chln
chusea on the Rand." The C'hlnchuses are
the brigand bands which roam over Man
churia murdering .and looting whenever
they are ahle. The Chinese laborers are
now deserting In large numbers from the
mines, and have crented a reign of terroi1
In the Transvaal. To them robbery, out
rage and murder come as second nature,
and In fact they are quite unable to see
anything reprehensible In such crimes.
.Bands ranging from four or five to twenty
are scattered around the country, and the
Boer farmers dare not leave their houses
and their families unprotected even to fol
low their avocations on the farms.
Great credit is due to tho Morning Leader
for the courage and the determination with
which It has devoted Its columns to ex
posing the horrors of Chinese slavery.

Alleged that He Alone Knew Fao'i Made

PRINCE VON BUEL0W TALKS OF AFFAIR
German Chancellor Saya Too Mnek
Has Been Made of Feellna He
tween the Germans aad
PARIS. Oct. :'8. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) It is difficult even at this late
date to accurately Judge of the full effect
of the disclosures In the field of diplomacy
made recently by the newspapers of Paris
Some there are who think that the-disclosures
make for peace others Insist that
the disclosures make for war. One thing
appears certain the reputation of M. Del
casse has been injured. This Is not be
cause M. Dclcasse does not occupy the
better position from one point of view as
a result of the disclosures. It Is because
the belief is general that M. Delcassc him
self must have given the Information for
the sensations to the newspapers and even
In Paris there Is a disposition to Inquire
as to whether this was really wise; but It
la universally admitted on the continent
that only M. Delcasse could have been
In possession of the Information.
It was the Matin that was responsible
for the first publication of these articles,
believed to have tieen Inspired, If not from
the pen of M. Delcasse direct, and the ar
ticles In the Matin were started originally
as a sort of an aftermath of the remark
able Interviews with Prince von Buelow
published first In the Temps.
The article In the Matin "began with the
publication of an expose of the secret his
tory of the crisis between France and Ger
many In the spring of the present year.
Though the fact disclosed, or rather a por
tion of the facts, have been known to the
various chancelleries of Europe, they have
not until the publication of tlwse articles
been brought to the attention of the gen
eral Dublin. 1
The Matin articles open with the voyage
of Emperor William to Tangier, pointing
out the untruthfulness of the German al
legation that danger to vital German In
terests compelled the German government
to take vigorous action In Morocco. As a
matter of fact, the emperor hesitated
greatly aa to whether he should land at all.
When he arrived the French naval officer.
Captain Ooutter. paid him a visit on board
the Hamburg and found him deadly pale.
Hla first words were: "The aea la very
high today. I am afraid that the feather
will prevent fne from .landing." Yet the
sea was not high and there was no difficulty
In landing. Nevertheless, the kaiser used
the same language to others. And thus at
the- very last moment ' did he apparently
recall and show uncertainty as to his plans.
The German interests were apparently eo
unimportant In his eyes that he was ready
to sacrifice them sooner than endure a light
Germany Manufactured Sentiment.
He landed, however, after these hesita
tions, which may have been due to the fact
that he expected war to follow one of the
greatest wars that has visited Europe and
at once his action was attributed to a per
sonal dislike of M. Delcasse.
In scathing terms the Matin told how the
whole force of German diplomacy, open and
secret, was mobilized at Paris to cowe and
terrify France. Prince Henchel von Don
nersmarck gave dinners at Durand'a and at
Utti e to French politicians and ministers.
Karon Ulelchroder. the great German finan
cier, went to and fro. 8ubaltern German
agents made their way Into French news
paper offices. And all of these agents pro
claimed with one accord, the good faith of
Germany, Its friendliness to France. Its de
testation of M. Delcasse, with. In the back
ground, a tone of menace In their language.
They told how M. Delcasse had refused to
stop at Berlin on his Journey to Russia to
see Emperor William, when they know that
M. Delcasse had not gone via Berlin. They
pretended that he had procured Uhe Inser
tion In the Matin of an article attacking
Prince Henry of Prussia, when M. Delcasse
had really strongly objected to the article.
They pretended that he had shown himself
arrogant and haughty to Prince Radolln,
when really Prince Radolin, on receiving
orders from the German government to
show the extremes!, possible politeness to
the French minister, had remarked thut he
did not know what to do, for each time that
he saw M. Delcasse M. Delcasse had sur
passed him In courtesy. They pretended
that M. Delcasse had ndt communicated
the Anglo-French convention to Germany,
yet they knew that on March 2t, 1904. he
had fully explained Its provisions to Prince
Radolln and that his explanation had been
consigned to wtltlng.
Panic la French Cabinet.
As the result of these tactics the French
j cabinet was sailed with a veritable panic.
One of the ministers declared, "We are not
ready.. Delcasse will have the country In
I vaded." M. Rouvler was aa much alarmed
as any one. To a friend he declared. "I do
not understand why our relations with Ger
many are so bad. Our present position Is
ridiculous and dangerous. We are like two
j persons living In the same house; when
j they meet one another on the stairs they
I do not greet one another, but cut each
! other. It must end In blows. As we have
to live together it would be better to come
to some understanding."
Alone M. Delcasse understood the true
- ...... 4ig-
land and to become tli ally of Germany,
and that the alliance would be the final
ratification of the dismemberment of France
in 1871. i
The Chamber, however, was terrified. In
tta eye the resignation of M. Delcasse was
a national necessity. Falling It the Ger
mans would be at Chalons In four days.

The Matins disclosure of the fact that
the boasted artillery of tbe French army
had not been completely rearmed has come
like a thunderbolt on tbe public. It Is one
more count against the men without pa
trtutlam and without sense of duty who
have thrown the French army Into con

BANKRUPTCY LAW IN EGYPT
Natives Final Kasy Way to Get Hleh
at the F.xpensc of Their
ALKXA.VDRIA. OvL IH.-tSoocial Cable
gram to the Bee.) Any one who lias fol
lowed dosely the laws enacted during re
cent years In Egypt cannot fall to notice
In them the lack of business foresight.
There Is one law at least which never falls
to give rise to grave complaints on all
sides, which since Its birth has been the
cause of great dissatisfaction. This is the
now famous law on the "Concordat Pre
ventlf." The measure appenvs to have
taken Its origin from the French law of
March 4, !;.o on the "Liquidation Judl
clalre" and Imperfect sa this law has been
pronounced to be. the Egyptian law on the
Concordat Preventlf Is very much worse.
One marked consequence of tho law is lliat
the number of failures has decreased and
a number of persons admitted to the benefit
of the "Concordat Preventlf" has been
steadily on the Increase.
To the Egyptian legislatures It seemed
that the time hnd come to admit that In
Egypt there were merchants and traders
who, through misfortunes nltngether Inde
pendent of any fault of theirs, had fallen
Into commercial trouble. But the legislator
apparently lost sight of the fact that at
least half of these worthy merchants whose
ways of trading and of Ideas of commer
cial order were but little known to him.
It was not realised that-the social opobrium
from which the "eoncpnlant preventlf"
was Intended to save the unfortunate and
Innocent traders was of no great moment
to the native merchant; bankruptcy. In
deed, has not tho same moral and 'social
consequences, even to a European In Egypt,
that It has In other countries. Thus the
reason which led to the enactment o tho
French law on the "liqnliliitlnn Judlclaire"
did not seem to exist in Egypt, and In fact
what Egypt required was more stringent
and eeere laws dealing with failure and
bankruptcies, and not a law which afforded
a wider field than existed before to un
scrupulous merchants and their creditors
for fraudulent measures to the detriment
of honest traders.
The results of the bankruptcy law In
Egypt Indicates that' the law has become
the most convenient means whereby a man
may enrich himself. Many circumstances
combine to show the absence of good faith
on the part of th debtor which, however,
falls short of fraudulent bankruptcy.

Another Meeting- In fnlveralty.
As before Friday's giant meeting at the
university, it was again announced that
any further meeting would not be per

again opened tonight and the hospitality
of the university was extended to a group
of lawyers and other professional men.
one of whose orators, referring to the Rus

ported on the barks of three whales, said
that the autocracy rested on three cetacea
money, the army and the loyalty of the
people, but that Russia Is now bankrupt
and the moral sympathy of the people
alienated and that the army alone remains
true, and this he predicted would not be
for long. Another speaker openly preached
terrorism and advocated "making an ex

Count Wltte's ally In the stupendous task
he is about to undertake will be General
Trepoff, who, though all his life has been
spent as an Instrument for repression and
though he twice has escaped attempta to

things Is changing and giving place to a
new, and Is now a genuine, convert to the
policy of giving the people a share in the

now fall the best opinion Is that nothing

complete ruin. Many shrewd observers be
lieve that Witte comes too late.
' City In state of Siege.
The condition In St. Petersburg Is that of
a city under siege, with an uprising threat
ened from Within and Its scanty store of
provisions being rapidly exhausted. The
garrison, however, is overwhelmingly large.
Generaf Trepoff has W.OOO troops under his
command, which are distributed In every
section of the city. There is scarcely a
block without Its military patrol. Infantry
and cavalry are quartered in courtyards all
over tpwn. the barracks are crowded and
the watch fires of the soldiers who are
bivouacking In the streets light up' the
thoroughfares where electricity has been
extinguished. Nevsky Prospect, the city's
main avenue, which last night was In dark
ness, tonight presents u weird appearance.
A powerful searchlight mounted at the Ad
miralty Illuminates the center of the avenue
with a blinding light, leaving the sidewalks
In darkness. Drivers In the roadway, dai
sied by the glare, were unable to see where
they were going and the throngs in ob
scurity on the sidewalks were In but a
little better plight. There was constant
confusion, which was uugmented during the
evening by an attempt of the Cossacks and
gendarmes to clear the sidewalks.
Two hundred thousand men are idlo.
Workmen's meetings held throughout the
city today unanimously favored continuing

noon stopped all the business of the courts.

Is waiting to exercise Its powers. The uni

NEHHASKA CITY. Neb.. Oct. .-(Special
Tci.-grnm.) "Just the attitude in which
I have seen him stand many and many a
titiv. It 1 nattirul, Indeed."
These were the words of Grover Cleve
land, twice president of the flitted States,
ss he stood and sttidiotmly gazed at the
magnificent bronse statue of J. Sterling
Morton, one of the distinguished members
of his Inst cabinet, which was unveiled In
Morton park within a quarter of a mile
of Arbor Lodge, the Nebraska City home
of the founder of Arbor day.
The ntnttie shows Nebraska's great man
standing, leaning slightly on a large, coarse
cane, in his left hand, his bat swinging
carelessly from his side In his right band.
In the affections and esteem of Mr.
Cleveland Mr. Morton, living, held lofty
station; drad, he dwells warmly ensconced
in the heart of his former chieftain. It
gave no surprise, then, when Mr. Cleve
land stood speechless, with eyes riveted on
the monument as If held by the spell of
love and memory while he reflected upon
the life and work of his distinguished
friend and colleague.
Marred only by an unusually cool and
penetrating atmosphere and a murky sky,
this, the culmination of the Arbor Day
Memorial association's purpose and plan
was fraught with eminent success. Dignl
fld by the presence of a former chief
executive of the nation and some of the
men who aided him at the helm. It be
came an event of national significance and
certainly the crowning achievement In the
annals of Otoe's capital.
Ten Thousand Attend.
Fully ln.ono people. It was estimated, en
dured the rigor of the elementa .for threo
hours and more while this last laurel leaf
was placed on the honored brow of Mor
ton's memory. The beautiful park which
the late statesman donated to hla home
city, magnificent with the handiwork' of
nature and beautiful from the touch he
gave It In the planting of trees, hedges,
mapping out driveways, parking, terraces,
was filled with people from various parts
of the state, as well aa those from other
states. It was said to be the most rep
resentative body of Nebraskana ever as
sembled on one occasion.
To receive and entertain their fellow
statesmen and the noted men of the na
tion. Nebraska City simply outdid what
any etty of Its slxe might be supposed to
do Every person in the town seemed to
be bent on making the occasion a happy
and memorable one.
