BRUSSELS. April 9. King Leopold -was
mobbed by Socialists here this afternon,
on his arrival from Biarritz. The meet

less unpleasant for His Majesty, -whose
automobile was surrounded by excited So
cialists, who shouted: "Long live the re

nnd waved rpd flazs in the Klne's face.
The Socialists had collected at the rail

Socialists bearing red flags. The King
happened to arrive at the same time, and
had difficulty in getting his automobile
out of the crowd, but he finally found an
opening and passed his pursuers.
In the Chamber of Deputies today, M.
Furnemont, Socialist, gave notice of his
intention to interpellate the government
on what he termed a "gross breach of In
ternational hospitality" in expelling the
Spanish Deputies.
The Socialist Incident has aroused in
tense excitement, and there are fears of
further disturbances and complications.
The Minister of War has ordered the
militia reserves of 18 regiments to be in
readiness to rejoin the colors, and gen
darmes of all the divisions are held In In
stant readiness to march wherever re
quired. The anti-Catholic agitation culminated
in a riot here tonight. A thousand So

of a Catholic Deputy. The police charged
the rioters with drawn swords. Several
of the latter were severely Injured, and 20

Revolutionary Tactics at Dorpat and
Other Places.
ST. PETERSBURG, April 8. It will be
wearisome to detail all the student dis
orders and revolutionary demonstrations
throughout the country, of which reports
are being continuously received hy the
local Radicals. The situation In Dorpat,
a town In the Government of Livonia, Is
perhaps typical of the state of affairs in
the majority of the provincial university
A letter of recent date, 'received here
from the place mentioned, says the uni
versity is temporarily closed, as a result
of strike tactics, which occasioned nu
merous arrests and domiciliary visitations.
The veterinary Institute has lost 92 stu
dents, of whom 50 can never return, while
the remaining 42 have been relegated to
retirement until the Autumn, as the result
of a celebration at the institute of the
anniversary of the birth of Gogol, the
Russian reformer and novelist. At the
close of the speeches, as reported In the
correspondence from Dorpat, both the stu
dents and the Invited guests gave vent to
their feelings In loud cries of "Hall to free
literature!" "Hall university autonomy!"
and "Down with the temporary regula
tions!" Printed sheets were distributed
and the "Marseillaise" was sung as the
audience left the hall. Students and their
friends then collected before the univer
sity and sang revolutionary songs and
shouted "Down with autocracy!" and
"Hail to the constitution!" The audience,
it appears, dispersed before the arrival of
a detachment of soldiers which had been
sent to the scene.
At Riga, revolutionary pamphlets were
thrown among the audience during a re
cent theatrical 'performance. The police
searched the pockets of suspected persons,
but without result-
Smaller Estimate of Expenditures
Than Last Year.
LONDON. April 9. A special order has
been issued today to the customs staffs
of all the ports of the United Kingdom
forbidding them to Issue the usual order
for entry to all vessels carrying free
goods. This applies not only to timber,
but to all cargoes at present free of duty.
The customs authorities In London are
very reticent on the subject of this com
prehensive regulation, but the general
character of the order is believed to be
intended to Insure secrecy regarding the
Intentions of the Chancellor of the Ex
chequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach. All
kinds of rumors are afloat, but according
to the best opinions, the Chancellor of the
Exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach,
will not depart from his traditional free
trade policy.
The war expenditure Is estimated at
40.000,000. as against 60.000.000 last year,
while the grant to the South African
colonies Is only 51,800.000, as against 56.
500,000 last year. Altogether Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach has to meet an estimated
expenditure of 171.000.000, as against 197,
'000.000 last year. It is said that the Chan
cellor will endeavor to remit 58,000.000 of
additional taxation, bringing the revenue,
roughly speaking, up to 150,000,000, and
that he will provide the remainder by a
loan, for the interest on which he may
possibly tap the resources of the Trans
vaal. A persistent rumor Is current here
that Iron ore will also be taxed.
The budget .statement, which was to
have "been presented tomorrow, has been
postponed until Monday, In consequence
of the Indisposition of the Chancellor of
ihe Exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach.

Reached Fiji.
MELBOURNE. April 9. The Pacific ca
ble has reached the FIJI Islands.
(The laying of the Pacific cable was de
cided upon at the colonial conference
held in London In 1SS7, but the survey was
not completed until 1899. After the report
was published In 1899. an agreement was
entered Into by the Imperial government
wl(h Canada and the Australasian colo
nies for the construction, laying and main
tenance of an all-Brltlah Pacific cable. A
landing site for the cable has been pur

"" Count von BuIott in Austria.
INNSBRUCK. Austrian Tyrol, April 9.
The German Imperial Chancellor, Count
von Bulow, arrived here today. Instead
of going direct to Berlin by way of
Munich, he will proceed to Vienna, where
he will have a conference with Count
Goluchowskl-"Wehner. the Austro-Hungar-lan
Minister of Foreign Affairs.
VIENNA, April 9. Count von Bulow,
the German Imperial Chancellor, arrived
here this evening. Besides his Immedi
ate purpose concerning the triple alliance.
Count von Bulow's visit to Vienna has
the further object of allaying the Irrita
tion which resulted from his failure to
visit Vienna when he was appointed Im
perial Chancellor. It la satt that Count
von Bulow will seek the consent of Aus
tria to give Italy economical advantages,
without which she would be reluctant to
renew the triple alliance.
France Foiled the Kins; of Slam.
PARIS. April 10. The Eclalre this morn
ing says It has heard that about a month
ago the King of Slam, under the pretext
of a. pleasure cruise, tried to levy a tax
on the .Inhabitants of the Cambodian
Islands, where his agents have been guilty
of other incorrect acts. The French Min
ister at Bangkok, the capital of Slam,
having heard of the King's order, sent the
French gunboat Comete after the royal
flotilla. This put an end to the King's
enterprise. It appears, continues the
Eclalre, that the Siamese Government has
also prevented the sale of an estate at
Bangkok which the French Minister
wished to purchase for a legation. The
King of Slam Is believed to be acting
under British influence. Cambodia Is a
French protectorate, and borders Slam
on the east.
Meat Shortage at Liverpool.
LIVERPOOL, April 9. The rise In the
price of meat here Is attributed more to
the prohibition of Canadian and Argen
tine cattle than to the operations of the
American beef combination. During the
first quarter of this year more than 8000
fewer cattle were Imported through Liv
erpool than in the corresponding period of
1S0L and the South American dead meat
trade has failed to compensate for this
shortage. The Butchers Association and
the Association of Foreign Cattle Traders
aver that the scarcity In meat will In
crease until the government permits the
entry of South American and Canadian
live cattle, which might safely be done,
as disease among the stock has disap
peared. German Tariff Duties.

Leading: Tranvaalers Are Anxious to
Surrender, but Free Staters
v Are Obstinate.
.LONDON, April 9. Telegrams received
from Amsterdam furnish evidence of the
excitement caused here by. the receipt of
private dispatches, from London report
ingthat peace In South Africa may be pro
claimed within two days. All kinds of
rumors were current on the stock ex
change, but nothing had reached official
quarters In London to justify such an
optimistic view of the situation
Gerald Balfour, president of the Board
of Trade, In a speech at Leeds tonight,
said that If the Boers still Insisted upon
Independence the present so-called peace
negotiations In South Africa might as well
be broken off immediately.
The Associated Press understands thit
peace negotiations are progressing sat
isfactorily, so far as the Transvaalers
are concerned, but the latest advices In
dicate that there Is small probability
of the Free Staters surrendering in
a ,body. The negotlatlpns thus far
have been mainly exchanges of British
Intentions. It has been plain to the lead
ers that their surrender will not entail
banishment, and this has been a potent
influence. The leading Transvaalers urge
thelF allies to arrange peace terms.
The Inner circles of the War Office be
lieve that If the "present Indications are
fulfilled and the Transvaalers agree to
surrender, the backbone of Boer resist
ance will be broken and the Free Staters'
opposition will soon be overcome.
The charges made against the conduct
of British troops in South Africa attrib
uted to General Delarey have not been
brought to the notice of the War Office,
and will be Ignored unless a question on
the subject Is asked In the House of Com
mons. Even In this event it Is not prob
able that any action will be taken unless
a responsible authority formulates charges
In a more- definite and direct form. It Is
pointed out that If General Delarey had
wished to make such allegations he had
ample opportunity to communicate them
with Lord Kitchener, who, it Is believed at
the War Offlse, would have notified the
home government of the fact, which ho
has not done.
The War Office officials ridicule the Idea
that the charges contain an lota of truth,
and are Inclined to assign their origin to
purely -Continental sources. The allega
tions have certainly not created a ripple
of Interest In War Office circles, and even
the pro-Boer press, members of the House
of Commons and others appear to attach
small Importance to the matter. General
Delarey's courteous treatment of General
Miithuen. It Is asserted, " makes It diffi
cult to believe that the Boer commandant
was personally responsible for the charges,
which Include persecution of Delarey's
own family. ,
The Dornbalt Farm Fight.
LONDON, April 9. The correspondent

mounted Infantry, sayg the correspond
ent, was opposed by seven fold Its num
ber. Six hundred Boers charged confi
dently, calling upon the Canadians to
surrender. Lieutenant Caruthers, one of
the Canadians, sprang to his feet and ex
claiming that he would not surrender,
shot the foremost Boer with his revol
ver at a distance of 15 paces. Lying
upon the ground the Canadians fired
steadily and forced the Boers to seek
the shelter of trees. Many of the Boers
climbed these trees and fired down on
the Canadians. The latter kept the en
emy at bay for two hours. When all but
15 of the Canadians were killed or
wounded, the Boers ventured another
rush and captured the handful of sur
vivors. .
Lieutenant Caruthers was the only
British officer who was not seriously
wounded. Some of the Boers wanted to
shoot him when he was taken prisoner,
but they ultimately thought better of
this, saying: "He Is too brave a man to
die that way."

Compared With Great Strikes of the
Past, This Is 'an Epoch of
Industrial Peace.
NEW, YORK, April 9. Ralph M. Eas
ley. Secretary of the National Civic Fed
eration, tonight Issued a statement deal
ing with the fear expressed in some
quarters that. the organization of the
conciliation department of the federa
tion might be responsible for the strikes
that have arisen lately. He says the
federation Is not responsible and adds
that the true cause of these strikes
should be looked for In the general con
ditions of industry and labor. He adds
that he asked the editor of Bradstreefs
for an opinion on recent strikes and re
ceived the following answer:
"In reply to your inquiry I would say
that I consider the present appearance
of unrest In several Industrial lines as
due primarily to the natural desire of
the workers to obtain a larger share
of the prosperity which has ruled In
general business for some years past.
,It has been noted that Industrial dis
turbances have been one of the phe
nomena connected with great upward
or downward movements In general busi
ness and accordingly as advances in
wages were sought or reductions In
wages opposed.
"To one who remembers the great
strike wave of 1856, and the immediate
succeeding years, with the hundreds of
thousands of employes who were ren
dered Idle and the immense losses, run
ning up in the tens of millions, to both
employers and employes, the present" and
the past years may well be termed an
epoch of Industrial peace. When one
compares the record as to strikes mado
In a year like 1SS6, when 500,000 men
struck or were locked out, or the record
of 18S7, when nearly 400,000 struck, with
a wage loss of $13,000,000 (Bradstreefs
figures) this, too, In a time of Improv
ing and comparatively good trade, the
lack of friction at the present time,
when no great bodies of men are Idle
through strikes, can be better appre
ciated. "At this period of the year strikes are
usually numerous, but one looks In vain
for such a strike as that of May, 1S96,
when more than 200.000 men struck for a
shorter day. It should not be forgotten
that there are probably 1,500,000 more In
dustrial workers (in manufactures alone)
In the country now than 13 years ago, and
that a certiln amount of friction Is In
separable from Industrial operations In
employing over 5,000.000 people In manu
facturing Industries."
In reference to the reported disinclina
tion of the strikers of the American
Woolen Company to accept the good of
fices of the Civic Federation, "Mr. Easley
said that no such offer had been made,
nor had there been any communication
whatever between the Civic Federation
committee and either side in the contro
versy. Carpenters Want More Pay.

TVhat! Does the Grim Specter
Follow You Into the Joyous
Springtime ? ' ' '
P A T NT p'Q fl- T PRY

Defeats the Work of Death By
Removing Your Terrible
Burden of Disease.
Are you still in suffering, misery and de
spondency? Does the grim specter Death
follow you closely as the Joyoua Spring
time brings happiness and blessings to
others around you? Are you still cling
ing tenaciously to false theories of physi
cians or friends who persist In assuring
you that time, care and the use of your
present medicine will give you new
Be assured your present condition la a'
perilous one. The continuance of the med
icine you are now using Is a folly; you
are simply trifling with life and wasting
precious time.
You should remember that while nature
clothes the fields with fresh grass and
flowers, and while the tree with a strong
life are showing bursting buds and new
foliage, that human beings old and young
drop off In thousands In Springtime.
Now Is the time for prompt, decided and
practical action If life Is to be saved.
Prejudice and the "erroneous theories of
even medical men should be cast aside
when the hand of death is upon you. It
matters not what your social position be;
the medicine that saves the humblest
man or woman is surely the one adapted
for the needs of the rich and those In high
social positions.
Palne's Celery Compound has a record
of life-saving that no other medicine can
ever equal. It has rescued rich and poor
from the grasp of death when physicians
and their most carefully prepared pre
scriptions failed in the work. If the suf
fering men and women of today could
but see the happy faces and hear tho
kind words spoken by the tens of thou
sands who have been made well and
strong by Palne's Celery Compound, It
would soon dispel their existing doubts
and" fears.
Palne's Celery Compound Is the only
medicine that reaches the root of lUsease;
It Is the only agency that can remove
your terrible load of disease. Unsolicited
testimonials of cures pour in even JaY
Young and old constantly bear witness
that rheumatism, neuralgia, kidney dis
ease, liver complaint, dyspepsia,, and blood
diseases are banished permanently when
Palne's Celery Compound is faithfully
used for a time. Begin Its use tocay,
poor sufferer; delays are dangerous.
