GERMANY TO FIND MONEY.
THE KING OF ITALY SAW NO WAY
Through the Emperor German Bankers Are
to Take a New Italian Loan—The
Army to Be Maintained.
Berlin, June 25.—[Copyrighted by New
York Associated Press.]—Interviews between
Signor Brin, the Italian minister of foreign
affairs. Chancellor Von Caprivi and the em-
peror have resulted in a promise of German
support for Italian finances 0:1 condition that
the Italian army and navy be sustained at
their present strength. King Humbert pro-
posed a largo reduction in the army. It is
reported he said much as 50,000 men, pleading
absolute financial necessity for such reduc-
tion. The emperor succeeded in persuading
him against making any reduction mainly
through pledging the assistance of leading
banks of Germany in an operation for the
purchase of existing Italian bonds, and also
the required assistance of a syndicate to take
a new Italian loan. The prospect of perma-
nent peace as the strongest factor toward ob-
taining more money lor Italy was referred to
in the interviews.
In an interview Signor Brin accorded to a
number of journalists prior to starting on his
return to Rome yesterday, he said he could
foresee nothing likely for a long time to dis-
turb the peaceable relations of the great
powers. Signor Brin declined to say anything
as to the financial position of Italy
except that the new Italian ministry would
be strengthened by the friendly attitude of the
German government. According to the for-
eign office hero Italy will be financially strong
if she has time to arrange her affairs. The
emperor's resolution to maintain credit for
Italy for the sake of the triple alliance con-
stitutes a leading element toward restoring
bismarck's popularity in bavaria.
Bismarck's triumphal progress reached a
climax to-night at a reception given in his
honor at the rathhaus atMunich.The prince was
never popular in Bavaria during his tenure of
office, but since his fall and especially since
his opposition to the emperor his popularity
has been greatly enhanced. The prince
regent of Bavaria and all the royal
family left Munich in order to
avoid giving the prince a reception, but
before going the regent directed the organ-
izers of fetes in the princo's honor to spare
nothing to make them successful. At a ban-
quet given at the rathhaus all the guests brim-
med over with enthusiasm. Bismarck ex-
pressed thanks for the reception given him.
He hoped peace would continue assured to
the emperor by existing alliances, a matter
which was especially important to the security
of the Bavarian frontier.
Every imperial government, ho said, is in
duty bound to promote an imperial policy in
harmony with national tradition. Some allu-
sions in the speech plainly indicated Bis-
marck's desire to convey an expression that
tho policy of the emporor and Chancellor von
Caprivi is a failuroand a menace to the future
of Bavaria, as also for other parts of the
empire. It is believod the regent of Bavaria
will meet Prince Bismarck privately atKissin-
gen, where the ex-chancellor is now going.
The regent is thoroughly en rapport with
tue projected economic entuntb
between Germany and Russia collapses un-
der the combined opposition of St. Peters-
burg and of the minister of finance. The
question came before the council at St. Peters-
burg after tho czar's return to Copenhagen
from the Kiel interview. It is understood
that the czar commanded the establishment
of the entente. Germany offered to make a
reduction in duties on cereals in return for a
reduction in duties on Gerinau iron and coal
imported into Russia. The Russian council,
backed by the ministry, vetoed making any
concessions to Germany, and a commercial
entente between the two countries is hopeless.
come from St, Petersburg showing that city
preparing for an outbreak of cholera. The
medical department of the ministry of the
interior has issued instructions giving special
information as to tho course to follow in case
of an invasion of Asiatic cholera. In the chief
towns a special commission of doctors has
been ordered to bo formed to carry out
sanitary measures. The commission will
be empowered to require householders to keep
their premises clean and enforce othor sani-
tary measures in tho town. Funds have been
placed at their disposal to allow them to take
requisite measures of safety among the poor.
All new comers to town will be subjected to
3xamination, and all who show symptoms of
cholera will be isolated. Funeral ceremonies
over those who die from disease will be rigor-
ously curtailed. The clothing of the sick will
bo burned and houses will bo disinfected. The
commission J must keep the public informed
as to the progress and proportions of the epi-
demic and advise the populace how to repel
diseases. The fullness of the government pre-
cautions is likely to strike the public with a
sense of a great epidemic impending.
A ORASH ON THE RAIL
Serious and Fatal Accident on the Penn-
Harrisbubq, Pa., June 25.—The first sec-
tion of the Western oxpress on the Pennsyl-
vania road, consisting of a baggage car, ex-
press car, three day coaches and the private
car of the millionaire George Westinghouse,
was crashed iuto without warniug here at 1
o'clock this morning by the second section of
the same train. Wcstmghouse's car literally
ploughed through three coaches, crushing
them into kindling.
The firemen and police under Mayor
Fritheys did excellent sorvice in extricating
the injured, getting them to the hospital as
soon as possible. The total number of dead
at ?> o'clock to-day was ten. Many more were
injured, some of whom cau not live.
Although the locomotive plunged through
the Westmghouso car, strange to say none of
the occupants were injured except the negro
porter, and he only slightly.
Train No. 9, due here at 9,'JO, divided into
two divisions, the rear section behind time
and trying to mako up, ran into the first sec-
tion at Dock street bridge. Several cars were
The first section of the train stopped on
Dock street tower for order*. When about to
start the second section crashed into it, wreck-
ing five cars of the first section and tho loco-
motive of the second section. Physicians and
surgeons of the city were aroused and all hur-
ried to tho hospital, where the wounded
and dying were taken as fast as
recovered from the wreck. The accident oc-
curred shortly before 1 o'clock. The private
car of George Westinghouse of Pittsburg was
the last on the first section, and its weight
crushed tho day coaches aheod of it. Nobody
in the Westinghouse car was hurt. A drench-
ing rain made the work of the rescuers
exceedingly difficult. Hughey Kelly and Ilarry
Neill, engineer and fireman on the second
section, stuck to their posts, tho fireman ex-
plaining after the accident that- they had not
even time to jump. Mangled todies in several
instances are unrecognizeable. One car had
to be jacked up to recover the body of a
woman whose head was crushed to a shapeless
mass. The best information obtainable is
ten persons were killed and about thirty in-*

Tho most remarkable feature is that no

The railroad authorities this afternoon is-
sued t no following statement: The cause of
the accident has not been fully investigated,
but the indications are that the ongineor of
the second section approached the block at
Dock street, Harrisburg, without having the
train under proper control, according to tho
H. S. Hayes, telegraph operator at Steelton
tower, practically admitted beforo the coro-
nor's inquest this afternoon the responsibility
for the frightful wreck on tho
Pennsylvania railroad this morning. Haves
was arrested to-night at tho instance of
Coroner Heron on a charge of manslaughter.
He is now in jail and his mental distress is
terrible to witness. Fears are expressed that
ho may lose his mind. He allowed tho
second section of the express to enter the
block before tho first section had passed out
at the western ond against the rules of tho
company. He assumed that tho first section
had passed the block without troubling him-
self about any notification from the Dock
The Weimar Postofflce and Ticket Office
Weimar, Tex., June 25,—This morning
Weimar was again thrown into an excitement.
In the early morn when the News reporter
came into town he noticed men standing
around in groups and inquired into the cause,
it being somewhat unusual, and soon learned
that two robberies were committed that morn-
ing botweon the hours of 3 and U o'clock, one
being the postofflce and the other the Southern
Pacific ticket office. At the postoffice the
burglar, petty thief or whatever ho may bo
called, effected an eutrano© by using a half-
inch chisel or punch bar on the east door of
the postoffice building, forcing tho look, there-
by breaking off the catch. Getting inside the
thief made sad havoc with the Oakland, Ar-
mourville and general delivery mail, tearing
all the letters open in search for money, then
throwing them on the ground.
Nothing was obtained in that section except
about 40 cents in money and $2 worth of
stamps, the postmaster always being careful
to lock the registered mail and money in the
safe before closing for tho night.
At the depot the rascal fared better. The
same instrument as used at the postoffice was
used on the ladies' passonger entrance door,
which was forced open, then forced tho ticket
window up, which he crawled through, and by
again bringing into play his little chisel the
ticket case was pried up, the burglar taking
the money which was left in there from sale of
tickets to passengers leaving on the night
trains, amounting to between $12 and $18, also
tickets, etc. The robberies were committed
after 3 a. m., as the ticket clerk did not leave
tho office until near that time, N9. 18, west-
bound, not coming in till 2,38,
At the request of Marshal York Sheriff
Townsond cam© up on the morning train, and
after investigation and consultation Walker
Williams was arrested and complaint filed
against him for burglarizing the depot. The
officers claim that they havo recovered money
that can be identified as that taken from the
depot by the clerk in the olfico and another
responsible citizen who handled the bill.
That the almond eyed Celestials are not all
laundrymen and that occasionally they possess
6ouls that aro attuned to poetry can not be de-
nied after reading the following literal trans-
lations from the Sliipoa, a periodical pub-
lished at Tientsin. Tho lines are dramatic
criticisms of music hall artistes:
"Kuei-foo has something poetical. Her
soul, redolent of cinnamon blossoms, is bright
and mysterious; even her shadow is full of
fragrance. In a blissful, heaven sent dream
she transforms herself with lier mate into a
couple of mandarin ducks.
"Yueh-yoo is transparent and clear. Her
flesh and bones consist of jewels. Her soul is
like unto snow. Whether laughing or weep-
ing she is always perfect. When she opens
her red lips her breath pervades with
fragrance the city of Tientsin, all too small to
How the Navajos Hunt Prairie Dogs,
A Navajo will stick a bit of mirror in the
entrance of a burrow and lie behind the little
mound all day if need be to secure the coveted
prize of a fat prairie dog. When Mr. Tusa
ventures from his bedroom deep underground
he sees a familiar image mocking him at the
front door, and when ho hurries out to con-
front this impudent intruder, whiz! goes a
chalcedony tipped arrow through him, pin-
niug him to the ground so ho can not tumble
back into his home, as he has a wonderful fac-
ulty of doing even in death, or a dark hand
darts from behind like lightning, seizes his
chunky neck safely beyond the reach of his
chisel shaped teeth and breaks his spine with
one swift snap.
Increase of Wealth.
Tho inhabitants of this United Kingdom
make enormous additions to their wealth every
year. Mr. Giffcn has made an estimate of the
average addition—a task of enormous difficul-
ty, because prices go up and down, and the
thing that may be worth a certain sum to-day
may bo worth more or less this day twelve-
month, though absolutely unchanged in itself.
It is as completely the same thing as possible
with human creations, but tlie selling price
changes. Howover, Mr. Giffon has made out
that in the course of ten years, 1875 to 1885,
the wealth of the nation increased from £8,-
500,000.000 to XI0,000,000,000, or, let us say, at
least £150,000,000 a year.
Murder and Suicide.
Portland, Ore., June 25.—Henry Norberg,
a real estate dealer, last night shot and killed
his sweetheart, Augusta Shogorfa. Ho then
put a bullet through his own brain. It is sup-
posed Norberg was temporarily insane.
Prisoners Soon to Be Transferred.
Buffalo, Wyo., June 25,—The cattlemen
now prisoners at Fort Russell will soon be
handed over to the Johnson county authori-
ties. Just when tho transfer will be made is
not known yet.
Sweden is the most Protestant country, for
out of a population of 4,77-1,40*) only 810 aro
Roman Catholics, or 1G out of every 100,000;
and next to it in this respect is Norway, which
is under the same sovereign, and has only 502
Roman Catholics out of 1,818,853 inhabitants,
or 27 out of every 100,000. In both of these
countries the mass of the population adhere
to the Lutheran Protestant church.

BURIED HIM ANYHOW.
King S ms Planted Notwithstanding a
Doctor Said He Was Not Dead.
Waco, Tex., June 26.—At midnight the un-
dertaking establishment of Fall & Puckett, in
which the body of Kintf Sims lay, was still
thronged with negroes of all ages and both
sexes pressing to gaze upon the features of
the dead. The levee began at 3 p. m. and
continued until the remains were removed
and the pressure continued for several hours.
At the hour named three doctors en-
tered the dimly lighted room and stood
with others beside the coffin. One physician
placed his hand upon Sims' brow and re-
marked quietly: "This negro is not dead."
It was a rather startling announcement.
Eight hours had passed since the county
physician and other doctors had pronounced
him dead. Now, in the dimly-lighted room
at midnight, to hear the voice of an expert
utter the above words—well, it had its effect.
The negroes pressed toward the rear and the
front door was instantly closed.
To vacate was the distinctly defined purpose

much pain in my head and back; was
treated by numerous physicians, and tried
many domestic remedies, all to no avail.
My suffering was so grunt that it became

body and mind for seven long years, I
came to Excelsior Springe, Nov. 8th, 1S88.
I obtained, within twenty-four hours, such
unaccountable relief that I could dispense
with medicine and instrument, aud within
three days after ray arrival was free from
pain and suffering. Remained one month
and became perfectly well and strong.
