For the first time in his life the Sultan of
Turkey has seen a royal face outside his
own mirror. Yesterday he greeted, in an
oriental manner, the young Empress of Ger
many and his wife. He would have had a
pleasanter time at Spandau. Boulanger, it
is reported, made a flying visit to France, in
disguise, the other day. The Liberals gain
at least SO seats in yesterday's municipal
elections in England and Wales.
London, November 2. Copyright.
Kaiser Wilhelm and his wife arrived at
Constantinople to-day, and, thanks to the
Tigli loan raised by the Sultan, their re
ception was marked by an average amount
of oriental magnificence. The meeting of
the two sovereigns was quite a change from
what the world has been used to witness of
late. The Kaiser did not wear the Turkish
uniform, and the Sultan adhered to his
native tnrban and baggy trousers. His
sublime majesty made no attempt to kiss his
German brother, and the latter contentedly
gripped the Sultan's brown hand without
proceeding to a closer personal acquaint
The Sultan, accompanied by the great
officers i,f state, including the chief eunuch
and her extraordinarily gorgeous suite, re
ceived his imperial visitors on the quay of
the Dolma Batche palace, whence their
majesties, the Empress and the Sultan in
the first carriage, the Kaiser in the second,
drove to the superb palace known as the
Xllidz Bieosk, where they will be lodged
sumptuously during their stay.
The streets all along the route had been
xfpaved, the houses wached, the muck heaps
carted away, and the unsightly rains
hidden by boarding freshly painted. In
truth, to a conservative oriental eye, the
aspect of the place was one of painful and
phenomenal cleanliness.
After luncheon and a rest, the Kaiser re
viewed 30,000 troops fine fellows, physic
ally, as he could not fail to note, but a trifle
veteran-like in regard to uniform. They
had not received a single piaster of the loan,
but nevertheless continued to make a brave
show. This evening The Dispatch's
Constantinople correspondent telegraphs
that the city is gorgeously illuminated and
their majesties are being entertained at a
grand State banquet
Emperor "William telegraphed to Prince
Bismarck to-day as follows: "Yeldiz
Kiosk, 11 a. m. Have just arrived here.
Fine weather. View beautiful beyond de
scription." Other official dispatches give a detailed
account of the meeting between the Turkish
fleet and the German ships Kaiser and
Hohenzollern at the entrance to the Dar
dauelles. It was a striking spectacle. The
passage through the straits was made under
a continuous roll of salutes from the forts.
On entering the Sea of Marmora Said
Pacha, Minister of, Foreign Afikirs; Edam
Pacha, formerly Grand Vizier, and Herr
von Badowitz, German Ambassador, left
the Sultan's yacht Izzedin and were re
ceived by the Emperor on the Kaiser.
Luncheon was served on board the German
war ship.
The Empress was invisible, as she was
again suffering from seasickness, although
the passage had been calm. The vessels
proceeded, and were sighted off the entrance
to the Bosphorus at 1 o'clock. A large
number of vessels, gayly decorated, followed
the German ships to the Dolmabaktche Pal
ace, where the Sultan attended by his Min
isters and the principal court officials,
awaited the coning of the Emperor. Upon
his arrival Emperor William was cordially
After partaking of refreshments, the two
monarchs drove to the Yeldiz Palace in a
carriage, under the escort of a squadron of
cavalry. The Sultan and the Empress sat
on jonb side, and Emperor William and
women of the harem will be Excluded.
The visit will last three hours. A musical
entertainment will be given, dnring which
coffee will be served, and the Empress will
then make a tour of the apartments and
The semi-official press of Berlin no longer
denies the political importance of the visit
The North German Gazette of to-night states
that if the intentions of the Emperor are
realized the conference at Constantinople
will create fresh guarantees of peace, based
upon the general principles of Prince Bis
marck's policy, and will strengthen the
Dreibund, and lnrther assure the well-being
and prosperity of the Fatherland, adding to
Germany's debt of gratitude to the Kaiser.
don't case foe the czab.
Other papers compare the present meet
ing with the Emperor's visit to Osborne
House, drawing the inference that the re
sult will be a similar entente cordiale. The
frankness of these admissions of inspired
organs is partly due to official advices from
St Petersburg that the Czar has relapsed
under Pan Slavist influences; that the
changes that were in progress to eliminate
the war advocates from the Czar's council
and entourage have been countermanded;
that the German-hating press has resumed
its former hostile attitude and that every
thing is the same as before the Czar's meet
ing with Prince Bismarck. The Czar's ill
humor causes no disappointment here.
It is a curious fact that the German Em
peror is the first crowned head which the
Sultan has seen outside of his looking glass.
He is so ranch afraid of conspiracies that he
rarely appears in public in his own capital,
and he would not dare leave the country on
visits to foreign potentates, for fear that the
partisans of his dethroned lunatic half
brother, Monrad, who has been in close con
finement for 13 years, might raise a rebellion
in his absence.
A great Protestant demonstration took
place to-day at Spandau, Bradenburg,
when the statue of Elector Joachim II,
raised in memory of his public adoption of
the reformed faith, 350 years ago, was un
veiled with much pomp and ceremony by
Prince Leopold Kaiser. Wilhelm had in
tended being present, but family affairs
having taken him to Athens, and the
business of the State to Constantinople, he
sent a telegram expressing his best wishes
and a warm interest in the nnveiling of the
monument to his famous ancestor.
The sight would have been much pleas
anter to the patriotic young monarch than
the streets of Constantinople, even though
they had been swept ana garnished.
The fine old town was tastefully decorated,
the local garrison, clubs and school chil
dren were drawn up in the great square of
the town, the bells were rung, and the band
of the artillery gnards played Luther's fa
vorite hymns from the steeple of St Nicho
las' Church. A dozen princes helped Leo
pold, and the occasion was fittingly graced
by the presence of the descendents of Martin
Luther and other Reformation heroes.

Will be the Zord Mayor's Procession Next
Saturday Singular Predicament of
the Lord Major Himself Bar-
nam's Parade to be the
Afternoon Show.
London, overobet-ArrThe- Lord
Mayor's processionnexF'Saturday, even
without Barnum's accessories, is to be
the most elaborate ever presented. There
are to be representations of Merry England,
the Lord of Misrule, Maypoles, and knights
of chivalry and hundreds of the posterity of
ancient aldermen will ride in triumph
through the streets with leading members
of all trades and professions.
The humorous feature of the show, this
year, is the Lord Mayor himself. He is
Sir Henry Isaacs, of Hebrew nntinnliir
and religion. No pious Hebrew takes part
in a wordly function on the Hebrew Sab
bath, as a matter of course, and yet Sir
Henry's inauguration is fixed by unalter
able traditions of English history on Satur
day. To ride gloriously through Jewry on
that day would impair the Lord Mayor's re
ligious standing, and yet to have a Lord
Mayor's procession without the Lord Mayor
would be ridiculous. Accordingly Isaacs
has effected a compromise. He will ride in
the procession, but he will get out of his
carriage and walk through Houndsditch
and the rest of the Hebrew quarter.
In case of rain and mud, that are to be
expected on any November day in London,
the dignity of the Lord Mayor will not be
enhanced by this proceeding, and the news
papers have been busy poking fun at Isaacs
for the last few days. One journal suggests
that the Lord Mayor be provided with a
carriage with the bottom out, so that he can
walk in the street while, to all appearances,
reclining among cushions. But Sir Henry
sticks to his compromise, and will walk
through the habitations of his co-religionists,
regardless of weather or anything else.
Bamum gives his street parade the same
night, and expects to outdo the Lord Mayor's
procession in everything. The great moral
show is already undergoing a big boom.
Barnnm Dosters are part of the street show
of London, and the newspapers are adver
tisingahim regardless of space. Part of the
menagerie arrived to-day, in the Furnessia,
and great crowds gathered at the docks to
see the animals nnloaded and sent by road
to the Olympia. The show opens one week
from Monday night.
A Romance of Tiro Continents Keeping tbe
Cincinnati Courts Busy One Jndgo
Champions the Canso of
the Lovers.
Cincinnati, November 2. The pretty
little romance of Cornelius Oberwater, aged
23, and Bertha Weber, aged 19, who sailed
recently from Bremerhaven ou the steam
ship Lahn with a party of friends with the
intention of finding a home in Decatur
county, Indiana, where they intended to
marry and to engage in gardening, promises
to lead to no end of legal tangle. The hon
est lovers are already in two courts, and
grave international questions are being
raised by a half-dozen or more lawyers who
seem to enjoy this refreshing bit of legal
investigation where love, not money, is the
The simple story is that Cornelius and
Bertha, as lovers, left Holland for America.
There is no assertion of anything but'an
honest purpose on the part of both to find
their home here and then to marry. She
does not accuse .him of any impropriety or
dishonesty of purpose. The law was in
voked by Bertha's father, who was not sat
isfied with her choice. He got the Holland
State Department to send a cablegram to
the Holland Consul in New York to arrest
Bertha and send her back to him, and to re
turn Oberwater on the charge of abduction.
They were found in this city, and the girl
was arrested first Oberwater applied for a
habeas corpus, but before it was heard he
was arrested by the "United Stctes Marshal
on a warrant from United States Commis
sioner in .New York, and was started off
yesterday to New York.
Judge Sage, of the United States Court,
being told of this, telegraphed an order to
have Oberwater returned. This afternoon
another habeas corpus was in hearing on
behalf of Oberwater. It was claimed that
the foundation lor the warrant against hira
was the cablegram to the Holland Consul,
which did not allege any crime. Pending
argument on this, the hearing was adjourned
until Wednesday and Oberwater was put in
the custody of the marshal, while Bertha, a
handsome girl, is in care of a special con
stable of the State Court, in which her case
is in hearing.

exchanged a few phrases in French with
each of the guests, and then relapsed into
absolute silence. Herr von Badowiti acting,
under instructions from Prince Bismarck,
will attend, with Said Pasba, the business

The incidents attending the Empress'
visit to the royal harem are awaited with
interest. The daughter of the Turkish Min

Astin Pacha, both of whom speak French,

walls of the cabins of the kaix are covered
with mirrors. The furniture is finished in

The Democrats Looking for a Leader In tho
Next Honse.
Washington, November 2. A great
deal of anxiety is felt by the Democrats
over the condition of things in the next
House of Representatives, Mr. Cox, who
was always a safe dependence for party
leadership when the men who ranked him
gave out, is dead. Mr. Eandall, though
perhaps not bedridden, will be too ill to
undertake any really severe work in Par
liamentary Generalship. Mr. Carlisle, who
has been in much distress over the illness of
his son, is himself so physically broken up
as to be practically out of the lists. Mr.
Mills has an affection of the stomach which
is liable to incapacitate him at any time
while on the floor, and his physicians will
undoubtedly warn him, as he values life
and health, not to let himself be led into
any protracted battles, with night sessions
and similar exercises.
About the only man left who can begin
to do justice to the party and to himself as
a leader, is Mr. Crisp, who has shown some
strong qualities and a good deal of fortitude
under lire. The outlook, however, is not
encouraging, and all the Democrats who
contemplate it. especially in view of the
fights which are pretty sure to take place
over the rules and the tariff, are feeling

The last prop was knocked from under
Martin Burke, yesterday, by identification
by the expressman Mortensen, who hauled
the goods from the Clark street flat to the
slaughter house. Mortensen swore that
Burke was the man who hired him. He had
previously picked him out of 50 prisoners at
Winnipeg. This evidence also completed
the proof that there was a conspiracy.
Chicago, November 2. There was1 only
one, prop under Martin Burke when the
great Cronin trial was resumed this morn
ing. His tenantry of the Carlson cottage
before the murder having been proved by
the prosecution and admitted by the de
fense, the only link necessary to
connect the young man with
the biz packing trunk, and the
mysterious J. B. Simonds, was his identify
cation by Expressman Hakan Mortensen,
who hauled the goods from the Clark street
flat to the slaughter house on North Ash
land avenue. If this Identification were
complete it not only branded Burke as one
of the conspirators, but established the fact
that there was a conspiracy and that O'Sul
livan had knowledge of it.
Mortensen Was on the stand to-dav. and
positively identified Burke, as the man who"
hired him in the latter part of March to
carry the goods from Clark street to the
cottage. Tie had previously picked him out
of a line of 50 prisoners in the yard of the
Provincial jail at Winnipeg.
The value of this witness to the State is in
estimable. If he had -not been found,
Burke's association with the stool pigeon
furniture could not nave been established,
and O'Sullivan's conversation with Frank
Williams (Burke) would have gone for
nothing. Now, however, Burke and
O'Sullivan have been tightly linked
to .the long belt which drew
Dr. Cronin from his home to the den
of the conspirators. Conghlin has already
been identified as the man' who negotiated
for the rig in which the doctor was driven
to his death. His association with the cot
tage will come this week, and Milkman
Martes will at the same time identify little
Eunze as the man who'drore the detective
to the place.
The Carlsons clinched the identification
of Burke during the first two hours of
court Charles Carlson had drank beer and
talked with Williams at tho cottage before
Br. Cronin disappeared. fHc had been in
the house which was soon'to be the scene of
the now famous tragedy, and saw the furni
ture and the carpet which J. B. Simonds
had bought in February, At that time

evidences of a crime.
The tenants of the house acted queerly.
Young Carlson rarely saw Burke, who was
then masquerading as Williams, about the
house. Two davs after the cottage was
rented he saw Williams and a companion
carrying furniture into the little building.
Expressman Mortensen was standing out
side, assisting in the transfer of the goods.
The express wagon was backed up against
the curbing.
One dark night, shortly after the murder
and before the Carlsons knew that their
tenants were involved in the crime, young
Carlson met a man skulking about the cot
tage. The fellow wore an overcoat, a soft
black hat and a light mustache. He said
in explanation of his suspicious movements
that he was out of work, and inquired about
the location of the nearest police station.
Carlson gave the desired information and
then passed along the walk to his own
About a week before the strange letter
from Hammond, Ind., was received, young
Carlson noticed that one of the slats of the
front blinds had been cut out The next
day after the letter came he crawled through
the front window into the house. The car
pet was cone, the floor of the parlor was
daubed with yellow paint, the washstand
was in the center of tbe room; there were
blood stains on it and on the floor near the
Young Carlson gave the alarm the day
the bodv was found, and the next dav the
young man, accompanied by police officers,
entered tbe building. This time Carlson
noticed splashes of blood on the wall and a
spot where it was evident an attempt had
been made tq wash out the tell-tale stains.
Tnere were footprints in the vestibule and
front room, as though the mysterious paint
er had walked about in his stockings. The
cross-examination was based on the assump
tion that the police had painted the floor
and walls with blood and paint.
To-day Mr. Forrest endeavored to draw
out the admission that old man Carlson and
his family had done the work for the pur
pose of establishing a museum. This

the coils tightening about their clients.
xoung varison, m ma re-uireci examina
tion, said he had seen men watching the
house from the corner, soon after the mur
der had been committed. His identification
of Burke as the Frank Williams he knew
last spring produced as -much sensation in
the court room as the identification of the
previous day. The prisoner, however, did
not show any uneasiness as the witness
leveled his finger at him. He laughed good
naturedly, and resumed his reading of a
morning newspaper.
Old Mrs. Carlson, in her story of the cot
tage and its tenants, did not have much that
was new to tell. On the morning after Dr.
Cronin disappeared she saw stains on the
porch of tbe cottage, and the prints of
muddy shoes on the steps and sidewalk.
They were not there when she swept
the porch and sidewalk the day
oeiore. About may zu a stranger
tendered her another month's rent for the
house, but Mrs, Carlson, being convinced
that all was not right, refused to accept tbe
money. The fellow then asked to be ad
mitted to the cottage, but was firmly re
fused. He then went away and was not
seen again by Mrs. Carlson.
o'clock that afternoon. The granger who
had hired him stood in the
doorway. When ' Mortensen started
to go upstairs to get 'the furniture he was
told to stand on the sidewalk. Then the
stranger, accompanied by a man who had a
dark complexion, began to bring the fur
niture, down the itairs. They handed it to
MortenSOn. who -nilAil it m. on Ms wuron-
Tbere was a chamber set, a mattress, two
chairs, a bed-spring and a trnnk which was
encircled by a huge strap.
Thestranger who appeared to be conduct
ing the transfer again told Mortensen to
drive to Lincoln and Belmont avenues,
where he said he would meet him, as he
would take a cable train. When the ex
pressman reached the corner the man -was
not there. An hour later the stranger ap-
pearea. tie was 'In a buggy and accom
panied by his companion, and Mortensen
and his employe, who explained his delay'
by saying that the cable had broke, took
a drink in a neighboring' saloon, and then
tha stranger told the expressman to follow
him. They drove through the dark streets
until the buggy with its occupants stopped
in frontof the Carlson cottage. There all
three alighted, and the work of carrying the
furniture into the house begun. Young
Carlson stood in the yard. Mortensen saw
every piece of furniture carried into the
cottage. The big trunk, which was empty,
was placed in the front room.
When the work was all done, the men
went to another saloon, where the stranger
paid him from the change he received from
a $5 bill. Two days later the expressman
saw the same man at Market street and
Chicago avenue. He
on the south side of Chicago avenue, or on
the same side on which tbe East Chicago
avenue police station stands, and the sta
tion where Cougblin reported. The next
nme ne saw nim was at Winnipeg,
where he picked him out from a
line of 50 prisoners) and when Mor
tensen was asked to-day if he recognized
the stranger in the courtroom, he pointed
directly at Burke, who showed more anger
than he did during the rest of the ordeals he
has passed through since Friday morning.
His face flushed, his jaws set, and his eyes
glared savagely at the witness.
The expressman also identified the bloody
and shattered trunk as the one which he
carted from the Clark street flat to the Carl
son cottage. The cross-examination failed
to shake any of tbe important points of the
direct testimony. The young man will re
sume his seat on the gridiron Monday
In his cross-examination of Mortensenfand
young Carlson Mr. Forrest sought to
strengthen the theory of the defense that the
police had
to convict tho prisoners by drawing an ad
mission irom the -witnesses that thev had
been almost constantly in the custody of
officers since the Coroner's inquest, and
that they had received some money
from the State. Mortensen ad
mitted that he was in the pay of
the Police Department, as hostler in the
patrol wagon of the JDeaplaines street
station. There two men, however, nave
been detailed to guard them. The monev
paid to them by the State was for incidental
expenses connected with- their trins Ahnnt

Tho New York Firm or William Turnball
& Co, Closes Down.
New Yoke; November 2. The members
of the dry goods house of William Turnball
& Co, made a general assignment to-day.
'without preferences to Elijah P. Smith.
The firm is composed of William Turnbnll,
Edward T. Choate, James McLean and
Jules A. Montant. It was regarded as one
of the most substantial houses in the trade.
The partners say that tbe assignment was
caused by the repudiation of the contracts
with the firm made by the former trustee
and manager of the Bochdale Woolen Mills,
of Boston.
For years William Turnbnll & Co. had
been advancing him money upon his con
tract to deliver sufficient goods before the
loan came due to meet the notes upon ma
turity. Dale had always lived up to these
contracts, and in August the firm advanced
him more money. On September 9 Dale
shot himself. The new trustees, J. W.
Wheelright, John D. Turnbnll and Wm.
Dale, found the affairs of the mills involved.

factory to ns and little comfort to ihe opposition."
In spite of the refusal of the Chairman of
the Bepnblican State Committee to talk
figures, the belief in general in Bepnblican
circles, among the well informed, that
H. K. Boyer will have between 40,
000 and 0,000 majority. It is main
tained that great efforts have been made
to get out a large Bepnblican vote
throughout the counties of the State and
it has been the policy of the State campaign
managers to instil into the minds of the
active workers whom they met and con
versed with during the tour of the counties
the bearing of this year's fight on the party's
future contests. As an evidence of how well
tbe party managers have succeeded, Gov
ernor James A. Beaver, in his speech on
Friday night- to 'the young Republicans,
cautioned them against inaction, and said

The Catholic "portion of -this co;
very much stirred up over the
Bev. Father Waldron", -the priest in
of the Church,, of the Immaculate
Conception, in sending away the curate,
the Bev. D. J. Omanoney, first transferring
him to Villasova College, and soon after to
a mission station in Pennsylvania. The
church is under the control of the Augustin
ian order., whose headquarters are at Law

has been a priest for 15 years, and daring the
absence in Enrope.iince last summer, of
the provincial, the highest officer of the
Augustiman Order, he has been actisg-pro-vinciaL
- The Ber. Mr. Omahoney has great per
sonal popularity, and it is felt that it is be
cause of this that he has been sent away.
Out of his salary here he was supporting his
aged and dependent mother, wliieh he will
now no longer be able to do, as in his new
place his salary will not be continued.
.Many gifts were made to the curate on his
departure, and a movement was made with
great success to raise a collection for his
While this movement was on foot Father
Waldron claimed to nave received from the
parish priest at Lawrence, and from the
aged lady herself, telegrams to the effect
that she was not in want, and these tele
grams he TJublicly read. Then the dele
gation went to Lawrence, saw the mother of
Omahoney, ascertained that she was in
need, that she would be glad to receive the
proposed contribution, and that she had not
sent-fhe telegrams as represented.
Wednesday night a lars:e,meeting of the
members of the parish was held in the Opera
House. Supervisor Buckley presided, and
Village Attorney John J. Madden was sec
retary. Besolutions eulogistic of the Bev.
Mr. Omahoney and deprecating his removal
were unanimously adopted. At morning
mass last Sunday Father Waldron beean to
speak of he late assistant priest, when
nearly tbe whole congregation arose, and left
the church.
Tbe publicmeeting was one of ihe largest
gatherings of people Hoosick Falls has seen
in many years. More than 1,500 persons
have signed the resolutions, and 12,000 has
been raised for the Bev. Mr. Omahoney's
mother. The provincial of. the Angnstinian
Order was expected to arrive in New York
to-day on the steamer Alaska, and Father
Waldron has gone to meet hiss.

while they have never feltinany way alarmed
as to the outcome, yet every effort has been

to say that if Henry K. Borer's majority is

Chairman Kisner did not, as at first in
tended, establish his headquarters in this
city, but left the direction ot the campaign
at this end of the line in the hands of Dis
trict Chairman Sheriff Krnmbhaar. The
Democratic leaders have followed intne
wake ot the Bepnblican managers and the
same system of campaigning has been car
ried on by both parties.
The claim is made that the Democrats
have lost rather than gained by the opera
tion, as it is believed that the Republicans
have effected a more perfect organization by
reason of the fact that they have a larger
number of voters, giving them a natural
majority supplemented by the fact of
uieir ueiug iu. posaeaiuou ut a&
national administration and having plenty
of money with which to carry out their pur
poses. Another point advanced in favor of
a large majority for Candidate Boyer is that
the Bepnblican leaders are making his fight
their fight, while Candidate Bigler has been
forced to rely solely npon the support of the
state organisation. HpeaKlng on tnis sub
ject yesterday a leading Democrat said;
all bt himself.
"Wallace is in Europe, Cassidy is busy
with his law practice, Sam Randall is at
Washington and Bigler is playing a lone
hand in the came." It is no secret that the
Democratic leaders are looking to the per
fection of their organization for next year's
great battle, and it is hinted that
it was after consultation that it was decided
to have.no interference by any outside
party, no matter what rank he filled in the
Democratic army, who was "net officially
connected with the State organization for
the purpose of preventing any jealousies.
Candidate Bigler, who spent last Sunday
in this city, before leaving expressed him
self as very vriell satisfied with the condition
of things. He did not even hint that he
expected to be elected, but spoke in very
confident tones of the interest manifested
and their expectations of a heavy Demo
