Berlin, Jure 26.—The reichstag" Ins ad-
journed for the summer, but tin.* Prussian
diet will remain in .session until late in
July. The association reform bill was
passed in committee in the upper house of
the diet. The diet is almost certain to
pass the bill in an amended form. But
there is no chance of the reichstag" agree-
ing to the measure in its amended form.
It was Interesting to see the cropping
out of the deep Mated animosity between
the two bodies, the reichstag" and the diet.
In the diet Baron von Seidlitz, the con-
servative leader, referred amid applause lo
the misguided majority of the reichstag,
"and speakers in the reichstag repaid th.:
attack in kind. Hen* Richter. the radical
leader, spoke in scath ng terms of the "al-
most permanent crisis in the cabinet."
lie said Dr. Miquel is to b( virtually the
new chancellor, adding: "What does he
believe in? We ought to invite him to an
audience and divulge hi'.- programme. We
ought to know. As to the autumn govern-
ment, nobody knows anything about'them.
This sally was received without applause
by the left.
In government, parliamentary and press
circles the conviction continues that cabinet
changes are impending exactly as previous-
ly cabled to the Associated Press, namely,
that Dr. Miquel, the minister of finance,
will succeed Dr. von Boettichcr as vice pres-
ident of the council of ministers and im-
perial secretary of state for the interior,
with increased prerogatives and functions,
not only in the Prussian, but in the imperial
Prince Hohenlohe will retain the chancel-
lorship, although he is anxious to retire to
private life. Dr. Miquel is taking most of
the burden of the office upon himself. Dr.
Miquel's sphere of duty will also be en-
larged by creating for him the office of
chancellor of the exchequer, with similar
scope and influence to the best chancellor
of the exchequer. Baron Marschall von
Bieberstein, the minister for foreign af-
fairs. will rem art! in office for a while long-
er, it being understood that his portfolio
has been offered to Count von Eulenburg,
the German ambassador at Vienna, and to
Count von Hatzfeldt-Wildenburg, the Ger-
man ambassador, and that they have both
declined. It is now asserted that Herr von
Buelow succeeds Baron von Bieberstein, and
that Von Boetticher, Who refused another
government appointment, is named for pres-
ident of one of the largest bank :, just as
Herr Boedicker, who a few days ago re-
signed the presidency of the imperial insur-
ance institutions, becomes president of an
insurance company at four times the salary
he has been getting.
The meeting of Emperor William and
King Leopold of Belgium at Kiel is not
entirely devoid of political signilieance.
They wi'l discuss the Congo and other Af-
rican questions touching both Germany
and Belgium, such as the slave question.
King Leopold will invite the emperor to
personally attend the Brussels exposition.
A comical mistake of the emperor in a
recent speech has been discovered. Speak-
ing at the unveiling of the monument to
his grandfather at Cologne, his majesty re-
ferred to "Neptune with the trident."
The symbolical figure on the monument,
however, was meant by the sculptor to rep-
resent Father Rhine, and it has not a
trident, but garland vines and grapes where
the trident might have been.
Another batch of fifteen generals has been
retired by the emperor, making thirty gen-
orals retired by his majesty in three
months. The oldest of the retired officers
is only 5G years of age.
At the war academy at Potsdam two of
the older pupils have fought a saber duel
with the knowledge and approval of their
superiors. Both were severely wounded
about the head and one of them is prob-
ably fatally wounded.
Much amusement has been aroused by the
fact that the jubilee portrait of the queen
issued by the London Times was made in
The new stage version of Goethe's second
part of "Faust" has been made by Herr
l'raseh. manager of the Berliner theater,
who will present it in gorgeous shape at the
reopening of the house in September. The
version includes all the music and much of
tlie mythological and allegorical matter
Sergeant Raith of the Bavarian artillery,
stationed at Mwz, who recently -stabbed to
death a soldier who refused tu obey an or-
der, has been ofllcially praised for the act.
The Kruez Zeitung warns German farm-
ers against the invitations of emigrant
agents to settle in the southern states of
America and calls upon the government to
issue a strict prohibitive decree again, i such
emigration, "since German farmers are too
good to eoinpuv with black labor jn the
cotton and rice Holds."
Special London Letter.
London. June 26.—'The Britons' collossal
pageant., one of the greatest the world has
ever seen, lias been completed without a
contretemps to mar its success. This has
been an anxious week for those in author-
ity, but whose scheme for the celebration
of the queen's jubilee was planned, car
fully carried outi and has been a triumph
for the morning and an object lesson in
unity for the hosts and guests. The latter
have seen in the gathering representatives
contingent from all parts of the empire,
who gave a meaning and a purpose to the
procession generally lacking in similar dis-
plays. It is an open secret that the prince
of Wales was among the hardest workers.
Not a single sbep of important was taken
without his approval and much of the
praiseworthy work < ■ ne is «1:p i|y due to
his initiative. A notable exc- Mlou was the
religious service outside S . Paul's cathe-
dral, which wa« the queen's |.i. a.
When it was suggested it i, .i the offi-

fieclc part of London, but courage and re*
source accomplished the queen'u wishes,
&nd the task oi' managing iLts ho*is, num-
bering a couple of million people, within
the exce tingly limited space and amid
scenes of extraordinary excitement, was
carried out in a marvelous manner, thanks
to th. skill of the poller and their strategy

liveliest satisfaction and added to the gen-
era! rejoicing. The naval r view was a
fitting termination of the week's ceremo-
A pleasant feature was the American's

One of the secretaries' of the United
Siatcs embassy said to a reporter of the
Associated Press: "It gees without saying
that the British officials were all polite to
their guests, but m Mr. Reid's case, all,
from royalty down, would have gone out
of their way to show that something more
than official courtesy was intended. Every
possible means was taken to show Mr.
Reid the appreciation felt here of the coin-

The feeling in the press in indicated by
the editorial of the Standard of Friday,
which said: "It would be a most ungra-
cious omission to forget to offer sincere
thanks to all the foreign countries that
have participated in the jubilee. They have
added materially to the popularity of the
que n and her people by their neve:' to lie
forgotten kindness. So far as the Ameri-
cans are concerned, we believe they are
almost as pleased and as proud as though
the queen were their own."
Jn short, nothing is too good for Ameri-
cans. in London to-day. The British are
also hugely pleased at the way the Ameri-
cans illuminated their houses on jubilee,
At the state banquet on Monday at Buck-
ingham palace, Mr. Whltelaw Reid led in

On Tuesday Mr. Reid lunched at Buck-

Christian of Schleswig-llolstein and the
duke of Cambridge.
On Wednesday both Mr. Reid and Colonel
Hay had boxes at the opera, but Mrs. Reid
was a guest of the royrl box. When Mrs.

The same evening Mr. Reid dined with
the prince of Wales at Marlborough house
and vent later to the state party at Buck-
ingham palace, wh -r< he was joined by
Mrs. Reid, who was accompanied by a mili-
tary equery and by Admiral J. N. Miller,
U. S. N.. and General Miles.
On Friday, besides attending the lord
mayor's luncht on to the royal princes and
others at the Mansion house, Mr. and Mrs.
Reid dined with the secretary of state for
war, the marquis of Lansdowne, in the
famous sculpture gallery of Lansdowne
house, at which banquet the prince and
princess of Wales, Colonel and Mrs. Hay
and other persons,of high rank were pres-
ent. The gallery contains one of the finest
private collections of ancient pictures in
the world, and the collections of paintings
by old masters is almost equally as line.
Later in the evening the guests, including
the prince and princess of Wales, attended
a brilliant ball given by the duke of West-
minster. The floral decorations and illum-
inations were very beautiful.
Mr. Reid was present to-day at the naval
review on board the vessel assigned to L.ie
use of the diplomatic corps.
Colonel Hay has decided to give a ban-
quet at his residence on July 14 in honor of
the jubilee, and the affair has awakened
the liveliest interest in the American col-
ony here. The guests will include several
members of the royal family and a host of

The Spectator publishes a long leading
article on Emperor Williams' remarks as
recorded by the Paris correspondent of the
Times on Monday last, and then cabled to
t'he Associated Press. The correspondent
reported a conversation affecting to present
the views of the emperor, in the course of
which, speaking of his anxiety as to the
future of Europe, he said that he did not
fear Chinese ambition or the anarchists,
but he did fear t-he expansion of one of the
great powers and the intervention of the
United States in the affairs of the old
world. The Spectator says:
"This is no important that we should
give much to know precisely what is in tho
kaiser's brain. The facts of the moment
appear to justify his enigmatic saying. The
Americans are exhibiting a tendency to de-
part lVom their policy of seclusion and inter-
fere very strongly in the affairs of the old
Continuing, the Spectator instances Ven-
ezuela, Samoa and Hawaii, adding, "And
they are apparently going to interfere with
Spain in the most positive manner. If there
is any truth in the account of the instruc-
tions given to General Woodford, the United
States intends to immediately offer an ulti-
matum to Spain by practically refusing her
proposition to suppress a revolution in her
own dominion®. The last event seems to
have very badly impressed the emperor.
Does he propose himself to> avert Amer-
ican intervention in the affairs of
the old world? If he does
President McKinley must be cautious in
his diplomacy for the German and Spanish
fleets combined would be more than a
match for any fleet America could pro-
duce without an effort which would tax
the resources of the union, not in money,
but in ships and sailors. The union is Ir-
resistible only ashore, and Cuba would be a
poor reward for a great and dangerous sea
war. It is not certain Germany has not a
motive for such an act, for the United
States, with its Monroeism, is nearly as
much in the way of powers desiring to ex-
pand as Great Britain. The foreign policy
of the United States prevents them from
colonizing South America. But the natural
place for Germany is in south Brazil, and
now that the government is in a position to
direct the tide of emigrants to the west,
we should not be surprised if the tide of
emigrants to South America be amazing-

FLOWERED ORGANDIE (iOW.N FROM HARPER'S BAZAR
One of the prettiest scenes for the eye to rest upon this summer is an outdoor
gathering of young ladies dressed in flowered organdie gowns, a material that has
grown to I f the ruse. It is in esp eially gooil taste, keying us it does with the
bright colors of the Mowers, the differ,-nt shades of green and the clear blue sky of
June. One could easily liken suoli a scene to a veritable fairy land. These gowns aro
ti e only wear this reason, whether in silk, in woolen, or in muslins. For garden par-
lies or other i'-s^iw oceawiuns the llow-'ied organdies are supreme. And what could be
cooler, prettier, or, to us: an Anglicism, "smarter?" One charming design which we
print, taken from Harpers Uazar, is a white ground with sprays of pink (lowers
and heavy white stripes. The skirt bus a graduated full llounce with an entre-deux
of wide white lace. Three bands of entre-deux are placed above the flounce, and the
waist is heavily trimmed with the lace. A collar, belt and sash of old rose pink taf-
feta give a smart look to the gown. The hat is of cream white straw, trimmed with
taffeta ribbon and iiink roses. Tho jnuaaol 13 of taffeta and chiffon.

Kansas City, Mo., June 26.—The St. Louis
express on the Wabash railroad, which left
at G.20 this evening-, plunged through a tres-
tle at Missouri City, Mo., at 7.05 o'clock*
carrying down the entire train with the en-
ine of the rear car, a Pullman. The gorge,
which a few hours previously was practical-
ly empty, had become a raging torrent be-
cause of a tremendous downpour of rain,
and the structure weakened. Seven persons
ire known to be dead, and the list may
reach twenty-live. There were twenty-live
passengers in the chair car, and only a few
of these are accounted for. John Knnis, a
Kansas City traveling salesman, was in the
rear of the car which was the only one to
escape Injury. It was likewise the only car
which none of the passengers
were Injured. Mr. Ennis had an
Interview with a fdrmer who
had come from Missouri City in the even-
ing and was at the place where the wreck
occurred to Hag the train. He claimed to
have waved a flag on the track, but owing
to the terrific rain the engineer was unable
to see the signal. Mr. Ennis said the wreck
occurred at 7.05. The engineer passed over
the trestle, which broke immediately after-
wards, and the tender, together with the
front or through smoking car, was thrown
backward Into the gorge. The farmer with
Whom Mr. Ennis talked said that at 5
o'clock there was no water in the gorge,
but at the time of the wreck it was a
raging torrent of ten feet or more in depth.
The farmer said the bridge was clearly
unsafe and that fact impelled him to stand
in the storm in an attempt to flag the train.
There were no trainmen left» unkilled on
the side of the gorge on which most of the
cars were left, »o far as Mr. Ennis knows,
the engineer and fireman being on Che other
side. The passengers were left to take in-
dependent action in rescuing the victims.
One of the most important things, and
one which secured the safety of the re-
maining passengers, was the flagging of a
freight train which followed the passenger
train about ten minutes. The freight train
was flagged by passengers 300 feet from
the wreck. Mr. Ennis said a passenger in
the train estimated that there were at
least forty passengers in the smoking car,
and not more than ten were rescued on
this side of the gorge. Most of the smoker
passengers, if they were saved, were found
on the other side. It was generally be-
lieved with the passengers that very many
of the passengers of the smoker had been
killed, but no one could estimate the num-
The conductor was in the smoking car at
the time of the wreck and is believed to
have been killed. Mr. Ennis thought twenty
a conservative estimate of the number
killed, and that it was more likely more
than less that number. The mall clerk and
express messenger, he thought, were un-
Edwin Zea of Kansas City and C. W.
Harbold, a traveling salesman, were the
men who flagged the approaching freight
train. Both men agreed with Mr. Ennis
in their accounts of the wreck and esti-
mates of the number killed.
On arriving at the depot in this city both
took luncheon and neither seemed to take
any credit for having saved their fellow
passengers from the catastrophe of a dou-
ble wreck in which many must have been
killed but for the forethought of the two
men. Both said they did not see a train-
man after the wreck, and were of tho
opinion that all except the engineer, fire-
man and Pullman conductor were killed.
The freight train, they said, was about ten
minutes behind. Neither Mr. Zea nor Mr.
Harbold would venture an estimate on the
loss of life, which both agreed would prob-
ably be fully as great as Mr. Ennis had
Lee W. Campbell of Kansas City was in
the rear car. He said: "We hardly felt the
shock. I should think there were at least
ten or twelve killed from the reports I have
had from the passengers on the other cars.
The baggagemaster and mail agent were
undoubtedly killed. The mall, baggage car
and smoker are down in the water on the
other side of the gorge. I think the gorge
was about fifteen feet from the top of tho
trestle. On this side of the gorge the sleep-
er, which was behind the chair car, ran
under It, and the Excelsior Springs, or sec-
ond smoker, is over the chair car.
The front of the second smoker is broken
in and two people in that car were injured.
I heard a passenger who passed through the
chair car early in the evening say that after
the wreck it was filled with traveling men.
H. H. Dillon, a Topeka attorney, with his
wife and son and servant, was in the s>leep-
er. He aaid no part of the sleeper was un-
der water in the gorge. It was standing on
end and the passengers escaped by climbing
through the windows. No one in the sleeper
was hurt. Mr. Dillon was unable to tell
how many persons were in the sleeper, but
said that the estimate of live made by the
other passenger was too low and that there
were at least eight or nine persons.
Dennis Sullivan, United States postofflce
inspector, was on the Excelsior Springs
smoker, tho front end of which was
smashed up and two of the passengers of
which were injured. He said one of the
passengers injured was a liquor dealer of
Excelsior Springs, but he did not know the
name of tho other man. The Excelsior
Springs man succeeded in extricating him-
self from the wreck, but Mr. Sullivan and
C. O. Bramhall of Kansas City had to take
htm out. He was pinned between the car
stove and the side of the car. The shock,
Mr. Sullivan said, was sufficient to throw
all the passengers of the front Excelsior
Springs car from their seats.
Miss Nellie Merrick of Carrollton, Mo.,
was in the last chair car, but escaped un
injured, ller companion, Miss Alice Dusk,
also of Carrollton, was severely bruised
about the left side of the head and arm and
shoulder. Miss Merrick said that J. W.
Smith of Brunswick was the only man who
took any part in rescuing the ladles in tho
first chair car, so far as she knew, and
that he carried several of them out of the
car, including herself and Miss Dusk. The
wife and child of Rev. Dr. Nortihrup, who
were passengers on the train, escaped In-
Rev. H. T. Haley of Kansas City was in
the last car with his wife and both escaped.
"It all came so quickly and without tho
slightest warning," said he in talking of the
accident, "that it is difficult to give a con-
nected story of the terrible affair. We had
reached a point about a mile this side of
Missouri City, when, without a moment's
warning, the bridge gave way, and in a mo-
ment the train was wrecked. The engine
and tender passed over the bridge. Tho
baggage car and the chair car went down.
The sleeper was thrown under the chair car
and the baggage car was thrown almost on
end upon the top of the other cars, at an
angle of fully UO degrees, as If hoisted in
that position with a derrick. The scene it-
self la absolutely indescribable. The cries
of the wounded were frightful. I can never
forget the spectacle. Fortunately the ago-
ny of fire was not added to the other hor-
rors of the occasion."
The number of dead is estimated at from
nine to twenty-five, the known dead num-
bering nine. Their names are:
CHARLES C. COPELAND of St. Louis,
conductor of the train.

Havana, June 26.—Rumors have been

mander-in-chief, had been killed in a fight
near the military line in the province of
Puerto Principe. The reports have not
Captain General Weyler arrived thirs
morning at Juearo, and continued his trip
Later to-day the reports of the killing of
General Gomez were modified to the state-
ment that he had been seriously wounded,
but nobody outside of officials believes the
report to be true.
La Lucha publishes a dispatch from
Hunas, stating that in the last engage-
ment between the Spanish forces and the
insurgents under General Gomez the horse
ridden by Gomez was shot under him.
According to official advices a number
of insurgents who have surrendered to the
authorities at Placet as assert positively
that in the same engagement in which
General Gomez's horse was killed the in-
surgent leader himself was wounded.
Official reports say that no engagement
of importance has taken place recently.
Madrid, June 26.—Don Francisco Siviela,

by Sonor Canovas del Castillo, tho pre-

and startling halt in the tariff debate oc-
curred in the senate at 2.20 o'clock to-day
when in the midst of a passionate speech
Senator Pettlgrew, silver republican, of
South Dakota, was stricken with paralysis
of the vocal chord, which brought his ve-
hement speech to a close with a sentence
half uttered, The senator was not phys-
ically incapacitated, except in the sudden
loss of power of speech. Although he took
his seat unaided, his associates felt that
grave possibilities were involved in such an
attack. They were quickly at his side and
he was ministered to with as little confu-
sion as possible. He left the chamber soon
after and was taken home by his friends.
The debate proceeded, but no further
progress on the tariff bill was made, and
the awelike feeling occasioned by this in-
cident led to an adjournment at 3 o'clock.
The senate started to-day on Its second
passage through the bill, the purpose being
to dispose of all items previously passed
over. The paragraphs considered were in
the chemical and earthenware schedule and
failed to elicit more than technical debate,
except in the unfortunate instance ter-
minating with Mr. Pettigrew's aftliotion.
Washington. D. C., June 26.—The attend-
ance of senators was very meager, and as
the tariff bill was about to be taken up Mr.
Vest of Missouri called attention to the ab-
sence of a quorum. Fifteen minutes was
required to secure one.
Mr. Harris of Kansas presented his re-
port on the Pacific railways, agreed to by
the committee on Pacific railways.
Mr. Morgan of Alabama said the situa-
tion demanded Immediate action by the sen-
ate, as the agreement made by the execu-
tive branch relative to the sale of the road
on foreclosure at a minimum price was
about to be consummated, and therefore
announced that on Monday next' he would
speak on the subject.
Mr. Allison of Iowa, in charge of the
tariff bill, said he hoped the Alabama sen-
ator would take no action tending to delay
the pending bill, as it was most desirable
to get the tariff into conference. He would,
therefore, feel compelled to resist taking up
any other business until the tariff bill was
The resolution then went to the calen-
The tariff bill was then taken up. A con-
test arose over paragraph 1—acids. Mr.
Allison asked to restore salicylic acid to the
Mr. Vest resisted this at considerable
The amendment was agreed to—30 to 19.
At this point an incidental reference to
the sugar schedule occurred. A letter from
the secretary of the treasury gave informa-
tion as to certain sugar drawbacks. In this
connection Mr. Caffery of Louisiana took
occasion to explain statements he had made
that the official information furnished by
Secretary Carlisle as to the amount of raw
sugar required to make a pound of refined
sugar had come from the sugar refinery.
11 is information, he said, had come from
the treasury official who was recognized as
a sugar expert. While involving no person-
al reflections, yet it established that tho
treasury reports came from sugar refiners
either belonging to the trust or under the
influence of the trust.
Mr. Lindsay of Kentucky stated that he
had formerly said that his friend from Ken-
tucky (Carlisle) had necessarily discussed
this information from the refiners, which
now appeared lo be established.
Mr. Caffery argued that if the official fig-
ures which the sugar schedule was based
upon were erroneous "and on this erroneous
basis this whole schedule was predicated."
The senator said he did not know what
"cast iron agreement" existed as to this
schedule now in conference, but the commit-
tee itself ought lo pause and inquire into
the figures on which the schedule was
After this diversion the senate came back
to the regular consideration of the bill.
In paragraph 14, coal tar dyes or color- ,
ing not specially provided for the ad valor- f
em, way increased from 25 to 35 per cent, and
on ail products of coal tar not medicinal,
the ad valorem was increased from 15 to 20
In paragraph 22, gelatine, slue, isinglass
and fish glue, the houise rate of 2V& cents
per pound was restored in the grade valued
not above 10 cents per pound, the other 'rates
remaining as reported.
In paragraph 38, olive oil, etc., the com-
mittee rate was increased from 35 lo 40
per cent, with a provision on olive oil in
cans, bottles etc., 5 cents per gallon. There
were some protests on this change from
Messrs. Vest and Jones.
Paragraph 35 was changed, making rates
on oeher, etc., crude, 18 per cent; ground in
oil, lVa cents per pound.
In paragraph 58, phosphorus, the duty was
changed to 15 cents per pound.
Alter a long contest the changes in para-
graph 74V4 were agreed to—30 to 20.
In paragraph SI, vanillin, the duty was
changed to 80 cents per ounce.
A new paragraph, SOVfe, was inserted, viz.:
Tonquin or tonqua, 50 cents per pound; va-
nilla beans, known as cuts, $1.
In paragraph 88, clays or earths, the duty
relating to china clay or kaolin was
changed from $2 to $3 per ton.
The house clause on bauxite was re-
stored, and limestone rock asphaltum in-
serted at 50 cents per ton.
on motion of Mr. Piatt of Connecticut of
tho finance committee. fullers' earth,
wrought or manufactured, was added to
paragraph 88 at $3 a ton.
This precipitated a lively controversy be-
tween Mr. Piatt and Mr. Pettlgrew, silver
republican, of South Dakota. The South
Dakota senator had proposed an amend-
ment adding fullers' earth, unwrought or
unmanufactured, at $2 per ton. He re-
ferred to the amendment secured by Mr.
Piatt to the advantage of being on the
finance committee as the mean* of aiding
a little refining mill in Connecticut, while
the producers of fullers' earth were left out
in the cold.
"1 wonder," he exclaimed passionately,
"whether there is an Instance of any cross-
roads institution in Connecticut that is not
thoroughly taken care of in this bill; if
there be any, It IS an oversight, and 1 sup-
pose Pennsylvania gets a ton on China
clay because the senator from Pennsylvania
(Quay) had four bushels of manuscript and
has told the committee he will bring it
here unless he gets what he wants."
Tho senator then severely arraigned the
senators who acted, he said, on the princi-
ple of enlightened self-interest.
Mr. Piatt replied, intimating that Mr. Pet-
tlgrew was for protection in some things
and not in others and was Inspired by the
fact that a bed of fullers' earth had been
discovered in South Dakota.
This appeared to anger Mr, Pettlgrew in-
tensely and with great feeling he rapidly
responded: "The senator says I am a pro-
tectionist only in spots," exclaimed he with
emphasis. "If to lie a protectionist means
to vote a duty of 700 per cent on silk, then
1 am a protectionist only in spots. If to
be a protectionist a man must vote for a
duty on sugar, purely and absolutely for
the benefit of a gigantic and corrupt truwt,
at the dictation or a caucus, then I am a
protectionist only in spots."
The vehemence of Mr. Pettigrew's utter-
ance drew every eye to him. He began
another sentence. Then he hesitated and
could not articulate his words. It was
thought to be a momentary Indisposition.
Senators waited for him to proceed. Then
it was observed that he could not speak.
Senators Mantle and Carter were quickly
by his side and water was brought to him.
