A bill concerning the peace footing of the army, which was sub mitted to the former reichstag, to my regret did not find approval. In the face of the development of military in stitutions, the rejection of the army bill was bound to lead to the resolution to dissolve the reichstag and order new elections. Since the introduction of the bill, the political situation in Europe lias experienced no chamre. The rela tions of the empire with other powers jre thoroughly friendly and free from all clouds. The projwrtion of Germany's organised military strength has, how ever, cbanired for the worse during the past year when compared with that of our neighbors. If already Germany's geographical position and historical de velopments hiy upon us the duty to maintain a relatively strong army, then further increase in the military strength or the empire becomes a forci ble necessity to satisfy the duties laid upon me by the constitution. I con sider that nil means at our dis posal must be utilized in order to establish au effective defense of the Fatherland. You will receive immedi ately a new bill regarding the peace footing of the army, in which there will be taken into account as far as possible certain desires expressed during the dis cussion of the lale bill. Consequently, diminished demands are made upon the personal capacity and taxbearing power ? .the people as fur as possible without - eitUuueering the efficiency of the army. -The empire's interest requires, especi- tsJjy in view of the end of the septenate next spring, that the bill be passed with the utmost dispatch so that the new recruit calls may be made in the autumn - on the new basis. Delay would lnnn- - ence most unfavorably our strength for . jnore jLts&n 20 years. -tentiemcn, with a great sacrifice Germany bai been united in one em pire. The nation honors most those who staked their blood or property on this work which led the Fatherland to prosperity. To safeiy guard the glori ous achievement with which God has blessed as in oar battle for independ ence is our most sacred duty. This duty we can only fulfill if we make our selves strong enough to remain a surety for Europe's peace. I trust you will not fail to give me and my confederates your patriotic sacrifices and willing supprrt in striving for these aims." The Bavarian minister called for three cheers for the emperor and they were given with a hearty good will. The uni form worn by the emperor was that of a guarde du corps. The members of tue eocial-democratic and radical people's party and some anti-Semites were not present. Most of the members of the center or Catholic party were present and there was a full attendance of the gov ernment groups. Itoath or tJsha Bontag. Fkihno, Cal., July 3.

Captaiu Fla vel's death which occurred late Monday night, though expected, was a severe shock to the community in which he has lived for many years. He died in ; great agony, his strength fighting off the inevitable to the last moment. For the last four years the captain has led a very quiet life. He has only been seen on the streets occasionally, visiting his of- j fice and First National hank, of which j he was president. The Flavel rent roll is the heaviest in the city. He owned , 60 lots in the business center and never sold one of them. His Tansey Foint tract, consisting of 1760 acres, purchased by him for $40,000, he sold j last fall for f3H0,000.

The startling news lias been received here that a revolution iias occurred in Greece, that King George has abdicated, and that the peo ple of Athens, backed by the soldiery, have proclaimed Greece a republic. The event was so sudden and unex pected that the particulars of it are as yet but rumors. No official verification of it can be obtained at this hour, but considering the dissatisfaction preva lent for some time, and the impulsive character of the people, It is not re garded as improbable. A cablegram similar to the above was received in this city by a prominent Greek. Sev eral Greeks were seen in regard to it, bat they bad no information to give. While surprised, they thought it not improbable. Their countrymen, they hay, have long been hoping and planning to make their country an independent republic. Klchamaon Heut?d.

HAZERS INDKK AKKE.1T For Marking th Fae of Several low (Undents with Cauntle. Toledo, Ohio, July 5. The recent hazing of students at Delaware College has resulted in suits for damages in the common pleas court of Delaware county. On April 20th several of the students were caught by older boys, taken to a room, and there bound with cords. Some kind of corrosive or caustic was used with which to tattoo the faces. Lines were drawn which made the boys look like Fiji Islanders or American sav ages. The marks can never be effaced. Those who were charged with having performed the outrages were arrested for assault and battery. After the cases were gotten ready for trial a settle ment was effected, the defendants to pay the costs and attorney fees. The fees have not been paid, and the attorneys have begun to get anxious for their pay. The hazers would not pay it, and the victims said they must, or stand trial for damages for $10,000 each. The result is that four suits have been filed for that amount, each entitled as follows: I'ercival H. Wilson versus lialph Harrold, I'ete Adams, Holway Farrar, Wilber E. Moorman, William H. Innis, Harry D. Belt. Walter E. Evars, Charles W. Perellis and Calviu S. Welch ; Joseph E. Kogers versus same ; Orland C. Harn versus same, and Milton W. Brown versus same. The petitions allege that the victims are forever dis figured, that they will forever be sick, sore aad lame, and add that the hazers ended the cruelty by spanking them with red-hot shovels. fcUMi Farmer Buffering. Topeka, Kan., July 5. The gravity of the condition of the farmers of western Kansas continues to grow more serious. Unless they are soon provided with sub stantial aid the country will be deserted by those able to get away, while those compelled to remain will suffer for the necessaries of life. A call has been made for a convention of representatives throughout the stricken counties to meet at Leoti, Wichita county, to discuss some plan for providing soed wheat. Governor Lewclling has been imjxir tuned to call an extra session of the legislature to take action for the relief of the farmer of the western part of the state, who have no seed wheat on account pf drouth. He says the exigencies of the case are not great enough to warrant such a coarse. While there is a wheat failure, the corn prospect was never I not be found, and it was correctly sur mised that she had fallen into the river and had been carried down stream by the current, which is very rapid at this point. Boats were procured at once, and by means of lanterns the river was thoroughly searched. An hour later Charles Smith and Fhilo Tatro found the bodv thrown upon the rocks at the dam 300 yards below the scene of the accident, life being quite extinct when found. The body was carried at once to the Gladstone depot, where an exami nation showed an abrasion and bruise over the right eye and temple, and a terrible wound on the top of the head, where the skull bad teen laid bare over a space not less than four inches square. The afflicted family has lived in this community since last winter, having moved here from some place in Wash ington. Talking Tbrougn Hll Met. Fixklay, O., July 5. P.ev J. W.

It is reported from the United States that King George of Greece has abdicated and a republic has been proclaimed. The Greek consul general here pronounces the report pre posterous.

At Cripple Creek, and in some of the other mining camps of Colorado, flags were at half-mast to day as an expression of the feeling of the inhabitants on account of tlie de termination of the administration to de monetize silver. TKOCBLK AT HAWAII. Hprecklea In Danger Inatloa. of Aeeae- riAS Francisco, July 5. Advices from Honolulu up to June 2th are as follows : Three arrests for Conspiracy and the promises oi more, Claus Kpretkels threatened with assassination, the or ganization of a murder society within the Annexation Club, and finally the newsof theappointmentuf Judge ftneed, of Tennessee, as minister to Hawaii to succeed Mr. Blount, have been the de- wbich make this departure from estab lished prices possible.

William Iean Uowells will be a reguiar contributor during 1803-94. A feature of the July number will be triple frontispieces by Hocheg rosse and Guillonnet. Crop-Weather Bulletin. E ABTEBN OUKOON. Weather; Since June 30th, warmer weather has prevailed. Crops : Bain is badly needed for the cereal crops, especially for that sown in spring plowed land. Only in unusually favored years does the cereal crop yield any good crop when it is sown in spring plowed land. The summer fallow and fall sown grain is most promising, and will not be injured by the absence of rain ; but it would be materially bene fitted by rain. The present outlook indicates only a fair wheat crop in Wasco, Gilliam, Morrow and Baker counties; in all the counties, however, the late spring sown will not make one half a crop, and much of it will most likely be cot for hay unless a good heavy ram should occur toon. The fruit prospects are good in Union county, and in the Snake river country ; they are fair in the other sections. Haying is generally in progress and good yields are reported. Apparently the climate conditions have been favorable to the cereal crop, yet many of the correspond ents report crops not up to the average. Livers: The warmer weather is caus ing the snow to melt more rapidly ; but the major portion hits already been melted so that there is no longer danger of llrjuds.
