REALIZES HIM MISTAKE.
The Kaiser la Trying; to Cover Up His
Injudicious Speech. ,n
London, May 16. Copyrighted, 1891,
by the United Press. A Berlin dis
patch says that the kaiser, in his tour of
the provinces, discovered serious misdi-
; rection of military administration, which
causea mm grave anxiety and which he
has directed the war office to remedy.
The commanding officers were surprised
at the thoroughness .which . the kaiser
showed in investigating the most ininnte
details of the condition of the men, their
treatment and their armament. In sev
eral instances it was found their con
tractor had failed to provide supplies as
agreed upon. In all such cases the
kaiser directed a prompt investigation,
and, if not satisfied, a portion of the re
sponsible parties will be reprimanded.
The kaiser has caused to be printed and
distributed among' the sovereign nrov-
I inces of Germany official copies of his
speech at Dusseidorf, in which the
words, "I alone am master in Germany,"
are omitted, and an almost meaningless
sentence substituted. The members of
the diplomatic corps have also been
favored with copies of the amended ad
dress. This is taken as showing that for
the first time since mounting the throne
the kaises appreciates and virtually ad
mits that he has made a , political
blunder in his rash assertions of auto
cracy and authority. It is significant in
this connection thSt Prince Bismarck
has been personally congratulated on his
election for Geestemunde by the prime
ministers of Lippe and of Meeklenburg
Schwerin.. The kaiser has also given it
to be understood through one of his
semi-official mouthpieces that his recent
speecn must be taken 'with the qualiiica
tion that while he desired peace he
means to be prepared for war and that
he is watching the attitude of both Rus
sia and France. Still more significant is
the utterance attributed to De Boetticher
and perhaps reflecting the view of his
master that through this (Rothschilds)
quarrel may be a pretext on the part of
Kussia for the accumulation of funds in
Russia preparatory to a warlike move-
in tne direction of the Dobrudscha.
Certain it is that Russia now has a total
pf nearly 40,000 men within easy reach
of that Roumanian province across
hich is the road to Stamboul aad " Bui
THE CRIMINAL ' RECORD. .
Startling Revelations Made at ' the Ex
amination or tne Keystone Bank
Philadelphia, Pa., May 16. The
hearing of ex-president Marsh and ex
assistant cashier Lawrence, of the Key
stone National bank, was . resumed to
day. " Bank examiner Drew told how he
found that whole pages had been ab
stracted from the ledger tie fore the time
of the examination and afterwards re-
E laced. Cashier John Hayes testified
e never assisted in making up the bank
accounts for submission to toe comp
troller, but signed it when presented to
him by Marsh. He never knew nnril
after the run of the enormous Lucas de
ficit. About the time the bank ex
aminer was expected, Marsh would bor
row about $75,000 cash from the Spring
Garden National bank, and place it
among the assets to keep the reserve up.
No entry was ever made of these loans,
and when the examiner conclnded, the
money would be returned to the Spring
Garden bank. Several directors testified
they knew but little of the bank's real
condition ; that they were never allowed
an examination of the bank, as a special
committee appointed by Marsh used to
govern them. . -, . , ,

New Obleanm, May 16. Yesterday
Henry Peters, a stevedore, went to the
ciiv nan aim compiainea to mayor
Shakespeare that the Provezanos were
interfering with him, and intimidating
his laborers. He made an affidavit and
the Provezanos brotherx were arrested
and held under $20,000 bonds. The
mayor sent for the. l'rovezanos this
rnorniiijr and Baid : ,
"I have sent for you because this city .
has grown tired of Intimidation and the
lawlessness you have carried on. 1
want to give you fair notice and warning
that this mubt ftop at once and forever.
I know well enough that you have long
been at the head of a disturbing element
here that has been a menace to the
peace of this community. " You know as
well as 1 do the mean by which you
seek to frighten people. You may not
do your work openly, but you find
another and perhaps a more effectual
way. You have sought to foment
trouble here time and again. Matranga
comes to me and tell ine he cannot pass
a Provenzano on the street without tho-latter-spitting
on him. Now, there'muat
be at once and forever an end to this.
1 am sick and tired of it, I tell you. you
must take your hands off. 1 have issued
orders to the chief of police thathemust
use his entire force to prevent the execu
tion of your designs. I am sorry now
that I am obliged to go to Denver. If I
could remain here I would personally
take command of the police force and
use every means . at my command to
wipe from the face of the earth every
member of your gang who tries to raise
his band against persons of this com
munity. But my representative will
act for me. This "reign of terror must
stop, apd if there is a way possible to
do it, will stop.".
The Provenzanos left the hall without
saying more than to protest their inno
cence. . .
SMl'OGI.EU HALCYON SIGHTED OFF
' Her C'ara;u Said To Be. Valuable.
Port Townkend, May 16. Collector
Bradshaw received a telegram yesterday
from Deputy Collector .Bickfortl at Port
Angeles, saying that the notorious smug
gling ' schooner Halcyon, supposed to be
attempting to land a cargo of opium on
the California coast, is now off the west
coast of Vancouver island. The Halcyon
is supposed to have on board a cargo of
the drug valued at not less than $100,000.
She has been in the smuggling business
for the last two years, and. has thus far
escaped the clutches of the custom-house -officers,
having been caught only once,
when she escaped. She speeds at the
rate of fourteen knots an hour, and re
cently left the Japan coast with her hold
full of opium. A few days ago the steam
er Australia, which put into Srin Fran
cisco, reported the Halcyon making for
the California coast, but it is likely the
wily smuggler steered out of her course in
order to put the Puget sound custom-officers
off their guard.
RESUMED OFFICIAL DUTVi
Many Important Queatlona
Washington, May 16. The president
resumed official duty at the White house
today. There are a number of import
ant questions landing in each of the ex
ecutive departments, and it is the presi
dent's purpose to dispose of them as
rapidly as possible. The Behring sea
question requires immediate considera
tion, and the president will devote his
attention to that first, -with the view of
having the government's xlicy in re
gard to the seal fisheries, so far as the
present season is concerned, clearly de
fined, pending final settlement of the
controversy by arbitration. It is proba
ble the sailing orders of the revenue .
cutters assigned to duty in Behring sea
will be issued next week. The illness
of Secretary Blaine mav necessitate a
slight delay in the preparations of in
structions, but it will be only temporary.
A HuHband's Critne.
Ttica, N. Y., May 10. Louis Layezi a
Frenchman living on a farm near Lee
Centre, last evening told his wife he was
going to kill her and their three children
and then hang himself. At 3 o'clock
this morning his wife woke the oldest
child, aged 13 years, and together they
went to the outhouse. So s on as they
left the house Layez followed them and
attacked his wife with an ax. The child
ran to the house and awoke her litle
brother and sister,, aged 8 and 3i, res
pectively, and ran out into the" field.
She succeeded in reaching the house of t
a neighbor and gave the alarm. -.. Mrs.'1
.Layez was ionnu lying in tne path fatally
Men are scouring the
woods for him.
Esmeralda Ordered Ont of Port.
City of Mexico, 'May 16. The gov
ernment denies the truth of the publish
ed rumors-of the Esmeralda succeeding
in buying even a limited amount of coal
at Acapulco, but says, on the contrary,
she was ordered out of port, and is now
lying off the coast in neutral waters.
The general opinion at Acapulco is that ,
the steamer Itata has passed that place '
and gone south, and that the Esmeralda
has been waiting for the "United Stales
steamer Charleston. At 5 o'clock this
afternoon unusual commotion was ob
served on the Esmeralda, but a thorough
search of the water fajled to ehow any
sign of an approaching vessel.
