The bee.? '1'he German dreams ef a Teu
' ton-ruled Heiland are actively revived by
Queen WiWielmlna's misfortune, bera'uao
probability once more becomes strong- that
a German prluoe will succeed to the heirless
Dutch throne unless the people of HollunJ
alter the succession by special legislation.
Its legal claimants are all German royal
ties, rirst In the line Is the widowed young
Grand Duke Wllhelm Ernst of Baxe
'Welmar, but aa It would be necessary for
him to renounce bis own throne to become
kin of Holland he Is considered out of the
race. Next are the three sons of Prince
Albraobt, the recent of Brunswick, aged
respectively 8s, SO and . They are th.
kaiser's cousins and aie members of the
Prussian royal family. Third In line are
the hereditary prince and prlnceee of Wled.
The oooupatloa of a foreign throne by a
German prince would not, of course, place
the land In question, under the suzeranlty of
the fatherland, any more than RoumanU
or Bulgaria; but in the case of Holland,
whose Incorporation with the German em
pire has long been forecasted by certain
militant elements, a German ruler would
undoubtedly ' be regarded aa a first-class
guarantee for elOse relationship.
Closer Colon Desired.
During the last li months there have
been specially active efforts on the part of
German chambers Of commerce and others
to bring about the long-dcslred customs and
postal union with Holland aa the first step
in the direction of political amalgamation.
These efforts have not been discouraged by
numerous Indications that the Dutch are
not anxious to enter Into partnership with
their powerful eastern neighbor.
' There Is, however, a well organised re
publican movement In Holland which would
. manifest Itself conspicuously the moment
the Oraxge dynasty disappeared.
Htrr Maximilian Harden suggests that
Herr Ballln, the managing director of the
Hamburg-American line, may be Prince
DueloW'r successor as German chancellor.
The writer, relntea an anecdote Illustrating
"tlerr Ballln's 'Intimacy with th emperor.
Herr Ballln was the emperor's guest at the
'Imperial hunting, lodge" at Hubertustoek.
and, after a walk together, the emperor,
'Prlr.ce Duclow and Herr Dallln' entered a
r room of the lodge set aside for Herr
The room contained 'a bed, a chest of
drawers and one chair. The emperor
swur.g himself on the chest of drawers and
Prlrce Buelow eat on the bed, while Herr
BaUIn occupied the only chair between
. A long, serious conversation ensued, and
then Prince Buelow suddenly remarked:
"If any reporter saw us like this we
should read tomorrow that Hr Ballln is
shortly to have a seat In the cabinet.'
The emperor added: "Or that he will be
charcellor, my dear Buelow."
Herr Harden auggests that Herr Wlegand,
the managing director of the North Ger
man Lloyd, Is also - a candidate .for the
post ef chancellor.

The boldness of the socialist newspapers

striking. One of the most daring recently
appeared in' the Vorwarta. Ita tone and
tenor may be guessed from the title "On

Immediately preceded the guillotining of

MANY AMERICANS IN IRELAND
Some Would Invest Cash, Others
tear Mamie fiad One
Oees e Tate.
M'BIJS. Aug 1 -(Special CableSram to
The Ree.) A number of Americans re
maklns a business to'.tr of freland. Their
object Is to lesrn by actual observation
nhnt opportunities Ireland offers for 1h
Investment of American capital, the belief
being that Irlsh-Amerlrnns might share In
the Industrial revival. The visit hae been
In response to Dr. Douglas Hyde'e Invita
tion when he' wne In America. Prof
Thomas Taylor, musical director of '
Irish Choral Society of America. Is n.
here to study the possibilities of Irlh musi
for choral use In America. The psrty com
prises over eighty persons, and Is a very
representative gstherlng of Irlsh-Amer-lcnns.
It Is headed by the Rev. J. K. Field
ing of Chicago, who has given the Gaelic
league and Industrial movements In Ire
land spirited and practical support. Father
Fielding originally came from Moonooln,
County Kilkenny. Mr. fi. Lahlffe, former
city collector of Chicago, also accompanies
the party on Its tour through Ireland.
Amongst the eighteen votes In the ma
jority which constitutes that brilliant young
Irish Nationalist, Mr. Thomas Kettle, mem
ber of Parliament, Is one registered under
circumstances which are probsbly with
out precedent. The Rev. Father Toner,
Pittsburg, felted States, came all the way
from that distant city to register his rote
for the nationalist candidate. ' He promptly
embarked on the return voyage when that
duty was performed without even waiting
for the result. He first heard the news
of the victory by wlreles telegram far
out on the Atlantic. It adds to the stir
ring romance of the Incident that Father
Toner, Mr. Andrew Kettle (father of the
member for East Tyronel. and Canon Mc
Cartan. his most Influential supporter In the
contest, formed in the old days, when
the agrarian agitation had Just begun, a
brilliant triumvirate who did battle for the
tenants. The Incident Illustrates the en
thusiasm and the determination with which
this latent election was fought. Up to
the last the Orange unionist party fought
with desperate tenacity and the leadere of
the organization were confident of aucuess.
Amongst the, recent visitors to the na
tional gallery of Ireland have been M. Du-rand-fltwel,
of Paris, and Mr. Roger Fry
the newly appointed director of-the New
Tork Metropolitan museum. Both these
gentlemen are Included emongst the best
living Judges of pictures and both expressed
themselves as delighted and surprised at

COMMENT ON BRYAN'S PLAN
Glasgow Editor Bays Peace Sugge
tlen Was First Made Under
OLA8QOW, Aug. 11. (Special Cablegram
to The Bee.) The Glasgow Herald, which
appeara to take an especial Interest In
things American at present, perhaps be
cause thousands of Americans are now
traveling In Scotland, after expressly stat
ing tha.t It has no business to Interfere In
the domestic politics of America, saye that
Mr., Bryan's actionem; connection' with the
International arbitration , or"" mediation In
all causes of quarrel whatsoever as pro
posed before "the Interparliamentary
union will go a long ways towards
preventing the revival in the next presi
dential election of that prejudice egalnat
him which his "Cross of1 Gold" and other
speeches excited In 189 and 1900.
The Herald then adds that It appears to
have . escaped notice everywhere that In
fathering the idea of international arbi
tration or mediation In this way Mr.
Bryan has revived a proposal which but
for the Intervention of the United States
senate would be binding st the present
moment on Great Britain and the United
States. Concludes the Here Id:
"During Mr. Cleveland's administration
nnd Lord 'Salisbury's second premiership.
Secretary Plney and the late Lord Pnunce
fote had an arhltrntlon treaty arranged
which provided for mediation In the case
of practically all' kinds of differences be
tween Grest Prltsln and the United States.
The treaty Just failed to secure the re
quisite majority In the senate, partly for
the same reason that the senate hung up
all Mr. Hay's arbitration treaties, psrtly,
no doubt, for Irish reasons. But It ex
pressed the disposition of the governing
classes of the two nations, and It will he
recalled that the Alaska boundsry was set
tled by a tribunal similar to that con
templated In the Olney-Pauncefote treaty.
It ie hopeful, to say the least, to find a
democratic nominee for the presidentship
serving himself heir to the Mess of Mr.
Olney sod Mr. Cleveland, widely as his
politics differs from theirs.

eigners. According to these gentlemen,
who accompanied a party of Shanghai mer
chanta through southern Manchuria from
New Chwang to Llao Tang and Mukden,
thence to Hsinmlntun and, back to Peking,
Americans and Englishmen are not receiv
ing fair treatment. These merchants spent
a month In investigation of trade condi
tions throughout ths sone of Japanese In
fluence in Manchuria and In Peking. They
made a report to Sir Robert Hart upon
their Investigations, and suggested to him
that certain 1 trade conditions there be
called to the attention of Great Britain.
Memorial to Geverameat.
It should be understood in England and
America that the Toklo Commercial eo
clety has memorialized the governor gen
eral of Llao Tung, General Baron Osh
Ima, on the subject of South Manchurlan
trade. The association wants to know Im
mediately the full carrying capacity of
the East China railroad and has aaked
that a large area of land in the vicinity
of Dalny wharf be appropriated as quickly
as possible to the building of warehouses
and other shipping facilities. This sctlvlty
on tfie part of the Toklo Commercial eo
clety has Inspired the German association
of Shanghai to forward to the German
minister at Poking an urgent appeal that
he put pressure upon the imperial customs
of China to establish Its service In Man
churlan open towns as soon as possible.
Americana and English capitalists are
als complaining ' that their Investments
are not safe and the following Incident
Is cited to show that the rush of foreign
money ' will not last long. A very large
corporation sought to protect the eastern
side of Its business by promoting an el
lied Japanese company. It very carefully
Invested .000,COO yen, and In 'order to cover
the transections it had everything dene In
the name of Its .Japanese lawyer- - Then
one of the leadere of . the enterprise be
came a Japanese subject, a Japanese com
pany was formed and the lawyer wae re
quested to' draw up the necessary deeds
transferring all ths properties from his
own -name to that of the new body. "Cer
telnly," he replied, "but my fee will be
1,0 000 yen." The million hsd to be paid
to him and the people had no redress.
Naval Officers Punished.
The court martial .which hae been sit
ting at Toklo for some i time past to In
vestigate the conduct rt the officers who
left ths transport Klnshlu Maru before
ehe was sunk by the Russian cruiser Ros
sis has conaluded its labors.
Captains Shlna and Sakural, Com
manders Mizoxuchl and Ogura, Paymaster
Ilda, two. lieutenants, and one ensign have
been dismissed, from the army and reduced
to the position of commoner.
The report on the foreiim trade, of China
In 1106 as Issued from the statistical de
partment of the Inspectorate general of
customs at Shanghai Is out. Mr. H. B.
Morse, the statistical secretary, devotee an
Interesting paragraph of his report to the
question of the boycott against American
goods. There hae been a c6nelderable dis
location of trade, which appears to have
been' more marked In, the minor distribut
ing centers, and from time to time a re
crudesoence of the agitation Is still re
ported from one place or another. Much
suspicion has been created, and much hos
tility engendered, but the general verdict
la that not . much - Injury hae yet been
caused to the American manufacturer and
American merchant, while another proof
has been given of the eoltdarlty of Inter
national trade, and the truth of the ob
serve tlon that Injury to the trade of one
nation or ef one commercial body le certain
to reaot on other In relations with them.
The final effect of the boycott, however,
Mr. Morse conclude cannot yet be seen
and the verdict on the movement will have
to be deferred till the close of another
year, or till an even later date.

BUENOS AT RES, Aug. 18.-4:80 p. m
The Associated Press has reoelved authori
tative Information confirming the worst re
ports of the earthquake In Chile.
Valparaiso le partially destroyed. Moat
of the damage done was In the center af
the city, extending from the Plata del
Orden to the Plaxa Prat.
Many lives were loot, but the number la
not yet known.
Hundreds of persons were Injured.
A state of panlo prevails at Valparaiso.
Santiago also suffered severely and there
wae much loee of life.
Los Andes, eighteen miles east of Ban

waa almost totally destroyed. The first
buildings of the town government house,
hotels and publlo offices were completely
Other towne en the Chilean side of the
Andes twholly or psrtlally destroyed are:
Quillota, with a population of 1,000; Hal
Llal, with a population of 1500; Illapel,
with a population of 6,000; Vallenar, with
a population of 6,000, and San Felipe, hav- ,
tng 12.000 Inhabitants. Quillota le a mass
of rulne and there waa great losa of life
From Santiago to the Andea every bridge '
and tunnel on the railway wae utterly
wrecked and the railway line torn up.
The shock la supposed to hav been
csused by the eruption of a volcano near
Jenln Loo Andea.
It Is Impossible to estimate the dimen
sions of the disaster at the present m--Mat
owing t the circuitous route over
which the news I received. There le do
doubt, however, that the catastrophe waa
of terrible proportion.
The disaster has cast gloom over the
republic of Argentina and all activities
have been auspended.
All the ordinary meana of eommunlc.
tlon with Chill at closed. There le
great anxlrty here. Jhe publlo le await
ing to ascertain the fate of relatives and
friends In Chile, and the government
office and newspapers- are besieged by
NEW TORK. Aug. It Fully 1,000 peo
ple, according to the latest dispatches
from Santiago de Chile, lost their lives In
the Valparaiso disaster. Santiago also
suffered severely. Thirty people were
killed there and the property lose le
placed at 12.000.000.
Except the foregoing no 'estimates of
the damages and casualties caused by the
earthquake In Chile has been received at
New Tork up to 11 o'clock tonight, .and
the above dispatch lacks confirmation.
Panio relrns In both cities.., The people
are In the grip of fear of further shocks
and are flrerng. Refugees from Val
paraiso are getting Into Santiago, forty-,
two miles swsy.
The disturbances have covered a large
area. Shocks were felt In Taona, In the
extreme north of Chile. A number of
minor towne have been either destroyed or
materially damaged. Valparaiso has been
described as "nearly destroyed." while an
other message says half that city hae be
come a prey to earthquake and the flames.
The, lose of life and property undoubtedly
was very heavy.
Te!ecraphlc communication has been es
tablished with Chile, but no message have
yet been received from Valparaleo.
The first shock occurred Thursday even.
