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 garia.! ' THE CRIMINAL ' RECORD. . Startling Revelations Made at ' the Ex amination or tne Keystone Bank Officials. 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. . -, . , , SHAKKHl'EAKK IS HILEI). He Suimnonx tho VroveianiM Before . Him and Kemla the Kiot Act In - Great Shape. . 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 VANCOUVER ISLAND. ' 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 Confederation. Waiting for' 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.

She succeeded in reaching the house of t a neighbor and gave the alarm. -.. Mrs.'1 .Layez was ionnu lying in tne path fatally wounded. Levez bad disappeared. 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. NOTICE.
