The Haogtity Caprivl Consents

Bkiu.in, Mar. '2. ict.ei nl Capri vi has
returned from a visit to HiihuiBtURtock
in answer to the summons of the em
peror. The chancellor m reticent an to
the facts of the interview, except that at
the command of his sovereign he has
consented to withdraw his resignation
and remain at the head of the cabinet.
Hut, while consenting to remain chan
cellor, General Caprivi insisted upon
the kaiser's accepting his resignation
of the otlice of 1 russiuii premier. lie
pointed unt that ho would he the lauh-
ing-stock of the landla!, thut his in-
tluenre theie was irredeemably damaged,
and that he cotild not for a moment
think of retracing his utterances on the
subject of the education hill, utterances
into which he had been led by his de
sire to serve the views and carry out
the policy of his sovereign. The kaiser
was obliged therefore, in order to keep
(,'aprivi as chancellor, to accept his re
signation as premier. This will, in
name at least, divorce Capri vi entirely
(ruin l'rusaian allairs and relieve him
from the obligation of appearing in the
landtag. Kroni the time of the founda

Pun Ain.i.i'iti , Mar. 22. There was
bribery, and enormous bribery at thut,
tosecuic the passage by the New Jersey
legislature of the bill legalizing the
gigantic coal combination of the Head
ing railroad with the New Jersey Cen
tral, lhigh Valley and Lackawanna.
Proof of it is furnished on the word of
State Senator Maurice Alexander Kogers,
of Camden comity, and bis word will be
accepted unipiestioningly from one end
of the slate to the oilier. The senator
declares that on the morning of final
passage of the bill, when an eleventh
vote was needed to make it majority of
the senate, he waa approached by peo
ple whom he knows well, and who in
behalf of a syndicate of bribers offered
him xin,(X)i) hi vole for llie bill. He in
dignantly replied to the man, who, by
the way, happens to be a close acquain
tance. Afterward the iiiiin came to him
and said that he had reunited to his
superiors that Sena'or Rogers could not '
be approached. They told him to try I
again, and named an enormous sum. lie 'ii power io ucr, nut. uie employes seem

Senator Rogers says be was stunned as
he sat in the senate that morning and
saw Ihe bill pass. lie had expected
bribery before, but then he knew it. lie
also said that as soon ns he had an oppor
tunity he told his friends, and immedi
ately on his return home told the mem
bers of his family. Senator Rogers'
statement, will create a sensation.
Though there buve been many rumors
that an enormous amount ol boodle was

districts ol Pennsylvania about, the fail -uie
of the independent producers.
Flnaiici.il embarrassment bus ruled in
the region during the pint six mouths,

Here are proHrties which n lew months '
since were north hundreds ot thousands j

these things the Standard Oil trust, of

pressed the fighting. Isaac held his own
hravely, but was no match for the skill
and impetuosity of his antagonist. The
marquis evidently meant to kill and Isaac
knew it. Ii was by a skillful feint that
the marquis succeeded in disabling his j

meat for the warriois. The dance was a
sort of walk-around, with much yelling.
Its purpose was to propitiate the Great

may be prosperous. After the dance the

Salisbury Replies to President Harri
son's Recent Rote.
Kany Congressmen Believe Tbat It Is Not
Satisfactory to tbe President.
AsniNGTos, Mar. 21. The nature of
the reply of Lord Salisbury to the last
note from the state department relative
to a renewal of the Jmodus vivendi in
the conduct of the seal fisheries in
Bearing Sea, is known to nobody in
Washington, except the president, the
British minister, and a very few officials
of the department of state. Kven the
senate committee on foreign relations and
the house committee on foreign affaire,
who are usually informed promptly of
any new phases in the negotiations, are
in ignorance of its contents. The con
clusion is drawn from this omission on
the part of the administration to inform
them upon the subject, is that the note
is conclusive as to the main point of con
troversy, namely, the etent of protec
tion to be afforded to seal life in Bebring
Sea. It is believed that if Salisbury had
acceded to the request of the President
for a renewal of the modus vivendi, the
fact would have been immediately com
municated to the senate. The belief of
many senators is that he has made the
; note a vehicle for an extension of bis
argument regarding tbe thirty-mile
; limit of the protection area proposed by
him as amply sufficient to meet all the
necessities ol the case

town, Pennsylvania.
I.opibvim.k, Ky., Mar. 19. Among
the residents of Johnstown, Pa , at the
time of the Hood disaster was James
Agnew, his wife and three children. On
the day of the Hood Agnew was at work
in the Cambria iron mills, while his
family was at home two miles down the
valley. The flood came, many in the
mills were drowned, and the house of
Agnew was destroyed and his family
scattered. The husband anit wife made
an unsuccessful search for each other,
and finally gave the other up for dead.
Mrs. Agnov, was sinking in despair
when there came a letter from this city.
It was from her brother, John Pritch
ard, a machinist at the Louisville &
Nashville railroad shops. He bade his
sister come to him, and her mother
sent her the means to come. Here she
lived quietly, grieving for her lost hus
band. A few days ago a letter reached
the Pritchard house and it bore the
stamp of Allentown, Pa., and it told Mrs.
Agnew that her husband was alive.
Whon the flood swept over the iron
works Agnew was carried away in the
wreck. Down the river he floated until
he lost consciousness for a time. When
he revived rescuers were lilting him
from a tangle of wreckage and dead
bodies. He lay in a Red Cross Society
tent for many days unconscious, shat
tered in mind and in body. When lie
recovered he could find no ' trace of his
family. Finally, through inquiries of a
priest, it was learned that the Pritehards
iived in Louisville, and Agnew is now
restored to his family.
