Kaiser Wilhelm and his wife reached home,
at Potsdam, to-day amid great enthusiasm
on the part of their five little sons, who
were drawn up in what the military Em
peror would call parade order, at the palace
door, and began to shout as soon as the
royal carriage was seen in the distance.
About the same time the previous morning
the Kaiser had met his Austrian brother,
in Innsbruck, and in that case also the
meeting, if not so refreshingly natural, was
undeniably cordial. In honor of the dis
trict the Emperor Francis Joseph wai
dressed in the uniform of his Tyrolese
Jaeger regiment, a queer compound of
gray, blue and green cloth, felt hat, and
green cock's feathers.
EFFUSIVE AS SCHOOL GIKLS.
The grown-up monarchs were as effusive
iu their embraces as a couple of schoolgirls.
"William, standing on the step of his saloon

had stopped, flung himself into the

It had been transformed literally into

or winter garden, and the largest waiting
room had been turned into an exquisite
bower by means of flowers, flags and cun
ning heraldic devices. It seemed scarcely
worth taking such trouble and incurring
an expense of thousands of dollars, for the
imperial visitors did not spend five minutes
in the bower, and luncheon was served in
the Kaiser's saloon.
Just an hour and a quarter from the mo
ment of its arrival, the imperial train
steamed out of Innsbruck, the Anstrian
Emperor riding in it as far as Rosenheim.
On the journey he had two hours private talk
with the Kaiser, to which the reporters
were not admitted. It is a pity verbatim
notes could not have been taken of the con

I BY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
ioNDox, November 16. Tns Dis
patch's Glasgow correspondent telegraphs
that the week has been the most exciting in
the history ol the pig iron market, owing to
the reported scarcity of Cleveland iron. The
chief dealings'were in that description, the
price rising 3 shillings above the Scotch, a
J state of things without precedent in living
memory; The market was lurtner nusierea
by the report that four large
speculators were negotiating for the pur
chase of laTge blocks of iron, in order to in
tensify the scarcity. On Friday the rate for
carrying over warrants was advanced 7
per cent, and manv weak bulls were com
pelled to unload. The fall was checked by
the receipt ot large buying orders, especially
JIakers are so heavily booked ahead that
they can spare little iron for the open mar
ket, while many merchants who bought iron
when the pneewas comparatively low have
found it more profitable to resell it in the
warrant market. It is natural to expect
that the recent rapid advances will be fol
lowed by equally violent declines, more es
pecially as consumers are refusing to follow
Makers are working at the highest
pressure, and are coining money. Five ad
ditional furnaces have been blown in in
Scotland, but the annual output, a million
tons, is below the consumption, and it is
estimated that the reserve stocks in stores
will sustain a further drain. Fifty-nine
thousand five hundred and eighteen tons
have ben taken out of stores since the be
ginningof the year.
As a proof of the risk connected with
speculation in iron, it is interesting to note
that in1870 iron stood at 6.6; in 1872, 37.6,
and in 1878, 43.6. Bear operations have
been very light, and some brokers known as
traditional bears have made a lot of money
through bull operations. At the present
moment the market appears to be sound.
LABOE TROUBLES IN LONDON.
Tho Bakers Winning la Their Fight, bnt
Other Strikes Are On.
1BT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. 1
London', November 16. The agitation
among the omnibus men is nearing a crit
ical stage. The Road Car Company has
expressed sympathy with the men, and tried
to induce the General Omnibus Company,
the largest concern of the kind in the world,
to confer as to the best means of meeting
the men's demands. The overture was
curtly refused, and a general strike may
occur next week.
fi The renewed agitation among dock labor
ers and river and wharfmen has not yet led
to anvthing like a general strike, and it is
not likely to do so. The laborers are con
sidered to be in the wrong in trying to com
pel foremen and clerks whose interests are
not identical with their own to join the
union, and if they persist they will lose the
sympathy and money of the public. Already
there is much discontent among the men at
being called out withont a grave cause, and
the leaders are quarreling among them
selves for precedence.
The bakers' agitation has taken a most
unexpected turn. Nearly all the large em
ployers have conceded the men's demands,
including the president, secretary, and other
officials ot the Master Bakers' Association,
who, a week ago, were protesting that under
no circumstances would they "yield. Their
-xample.has been numerously followed, and
tnestriKe, wnicmnu commence Monday,
will be confined to the men employed at the
smaller class of shops. Under these circum
stances, the struggle can't last long, and the
men are bound to win if well led.
CHEEKIEST OP ALL FKAUDS.
A Clerical Impostor Who Fooled the High
est Kind of Ecclesiastics.
tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
London, November 16. The cheekiest
impostor on record has just committed sui
cide in Eome. He was Michael Hallais,
the son of a peasant at Monville, France.
He had been a seminarist in the college of
the Trappist Fathers, at Vestemos, in the
District of Anvers, and by means of false
keys had stolen 2.600 florins from the
treasury or the convent, beside a gold watch
and chain and other objects of value.
"With these he fled, first to Marseilles,
where he provided himself with the eccle
siastical attire of a monsignore, and as
sumed the name of Prince de la Tour
d'Auvcrgne. Then, providing himself with
a pairof clerical spectacle', he went to
Borne and put up at the Minerva Hotel,
which is chiefly frequented by the clergy,
as Monsignore le Prince de la Tourd'Au
vergne, domestic prelate to the Pope.
Nobody took the trouble to investigate his
title, and he was treated with much distinc
tion by the higher order of clericals with
whom he came in contact. The dignity and
seriousness of his deportment were prodig
ious, and for two weeks he mixed, undetect
ed, in .select clerical society, and deceived
ecclesiastics of the highest rank. When he
was finally unmasked he committed suicide.
NOT QUITE ONTO OUE STILE.
The Liverpool Chnmber of Commerce Slips
Up on the Allen Labor Lmv.
IBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
London, November 16. The Council of
the Chamber of Commerce held an inquest
to-day upon the conduct of the Collector of
Customs at Norfolk, Va., and practically
returned a verdict of temporary insanity.
It seems that the collector decided that the
employment in America of English clerks
and graders by Liverpool cotton firms was
contrary to the alien act. The Liverpool
merchants, claiming to know quite as much
ot American law as any Virginian official,
contended that the act was meant to apply
only to Chinese and Coolies, and indignantly
want to knowi if there can be any doubt
about the color of a Lancashire man's skin.
The suggestion, apparently made by the
unfortunate Collector in his maddest mo
ment, that British merchants should employ
Americans to sample and grade the cotton
was received by the council with howls of
derision, and it was evident that the immac
ulate Liverpool traders entertained a very
low opinion of commercial morality in the
United States. It was generally agreed
that Lord Salisbury could alone save the
cotton business from ruin, and a memorial
to his lordship was unanimously adopted.

London, November 16. Ex-King Milan

and as living in that gay capital equally
with his own tastes is expcnsive,he applied

but with small financial results. Ultimately
some sort ot a compromise was arranged,
and to-day he has started for Vienna, after
reluctantly giving permission for Queen
Nathalie to visit her son in the palace.
In doing so he drew a fine distinction.
Tbe Queen of Servia cannot enter the

soothes Milan, Nathalie will not grudge
him that comfort, lor she has now gained

A German Reaping a Harvest by Coining;

BY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
London, November 16. A practical
German has lately been earning a goodly
income at the expense of the British Treas
ury. He has flooded England with spurious
half crowns, which are equal in every way
to the genuine coins. The depreciation in
the value of silver enables him to make a
handsome profit. The coins are stamped
from excellent dies. They sre of the exact
weight of the genuine article, although they
are a fraction larger in diameter,but thinner
in substance. The experts of tbe goldsmiths'
company have even pronounced these imita
tions genuine, so that there is little likeli
hood of the publio detecting any difference.
The authorities are keeping the matter
very quiet, and are doing all they can to
reach the source of the mischief. The Ger
man, alter paying all expenses, makes a,
sure 20 per cent, a very fair return for his
investment in these days.

Cleveland, November 16. It is some

and plans for the organization of the Fed

tlemen who are taking an active part
in the combination. They are very
free to speak of the low prices
and large expenses of the past and
the benefits which will result from concen

will concentrate. Later developments have'
made public something ot the minor aeiaus
of the consolidation. The nominal
capital stock will be $12,000,000. Of
this $6,000,000 will represent the value
of the real estate, buildings, machinery
and goodwill of the absorbed companies.
From $4,000,000 to $6,000,000 will represent
the cash paid in by investors. It may be
that not more than $4,000,000 in cash wiU be
needed as working capital and for, buying
outright the plants which owners will not
exchange for the new company's stock.
THE PREFERRED STOCK TAKEN.
A contract has been made with the bank
ing firm of Drexel, Morgan & Co. for the
cash capital. The bankers will receive for
the money its equivalent in preferred stock.
The $6,000,000 representing the value of the
plants, will be issued as common stock of
the consolidated company. Common stock
will be given in exchange for buildings,
machinery and real estate. Finished stock

SPECIAL TELEOSAU TO THE DISPATCH.
Ottawa. November 16. A decision has
Must'teen given by the Court of Beviewat
Quebec, in a case involving property vaiuea
at hundreds of thousands of dollars, and in
cluding the seigniories of Temfscouata and
Madawaska- The point of issuetin the case
of Fraserand Pouliot turned upon the
legitimacy of tbe marriage of the late
Colonel' Alex Eraser, who settled in the
Northwest in 1788, with an Indian girl,
Jamed Angelique Meadows, through one of
'whose children the claimant contended that
he was heir to the disputed estates,
f After living with Angelique Meadows for
some yeaTS in the Northwest, Colonel
Eraser, In 1801, returned to Canada and ac
quired the seigniories of Temiscouata and
Madawaska. Angelique followed him to
Canada tn 1803, with her children, and lived
with him some time at Biver du Loup, first
in tbe. Manor House, which he himself oc
cupied, and later in a small lodge at some
distance therefrom, built specially for her
accommodation, where subsequently she ap
pears to have been deserted by him.
The claimant produced a number of wit
nesses when the case was heard in the Su
perior Court, who knew Colonel Eraser iu
his-life time, and who testified that he had
frequently, in their presence, described the
marriage ceremonial which was followed in
the Northwest prior to the arrival of mis
sionaries among the Indians in 1818, and
related that he had been married to
Angelique Meadows with the same
formalities, having been obliged to marry
her in order to escape death. The
defendant in tbe court below produced as
proof of the illegality of the alleged mar
riage a petition presented to the Canadian
Parliament in 1862 by the claimant, alleg
ing that Alex Eraser was forced to contract
an alliance" in the Northwest with Angel
ique Meadows, who had saved" his life Under
circumstances in which he would infallibly
have perished without her protection.
Tho court by its judgment confirmed that
ot the Superior Court, and declared that it
had 'not been satisfactorily proved that
Eraser had contracted marriage with
Angelique Meadows in conformity with the
usages and customs then prevailing in the
Northwest; that even had this been so, it
appears that his consent "was not free, and
that he was obliged to contract the marriage
to avoid certain death.

THE BRAZILIAN MTNIflTEB'S OPINION.
A dispatch from Washington says: The.
xefjuua vi Lilts .ccYuiuwuuurjr uprising la,
Brazil cansed much excitement among, the
many-South Americans ia the city to-day
and theop'oAS expressed ia regard teihe
affair wVre'iVarlous. Some -wo aid not look
at the matter In a serious light at all and
were assured the reports were due
to the machinations of coffee and
rubber speculators. Those, how
ever, who were more thoroughly
acquainted with tbe political feeling in the
Empire, and who had access1 to the official
news, which reached hete to-day, were con
vinced that the uprising war decidedly
serious, if even the revolution were not al
ready suecessfnll3r accomplished. Senor Ta
liente, the Brazilian Minister, said to the
correspondent of The Dispatch this even
ing: I have received several cable dispatches
from Rio Janeiro to-day. Tbey are from per
sons of diverse political beliefs and are con
flicting In character. I will confess that I am
not able to understand from my information
exactly what the situation is, but I shall not
be surprised if the proclamation of a republic
be found to rest on a more substantial founda
tion than youTnight bo inclined to believe,
on account of the apparently bloodless
character or tbe reported overthrow of the em
pire. You must know that Brazil has been
practically a republic for long years. The Em
peror is very .Democratic in his Impulses, and
has not attempted personal rule at any time.
He has repeatedly declared that whenever
the people desired a republic and de
clared for It he would interpose
no obstacle in the way. Thus, you see, it
is possible for a revolution to occur which
would be as bloodless as tbis vaguely reported
revolution seems to be. It will be several days
probably before I shall know the truth In re
gard to the condition of affairs.. In a time of
such excitement as there is now. It Is
practically impossible to get a temperate pr
veracious account of anything.

K. Thnrber Does Not Think American
Commerce Will be Injured.
New Yobk, November 16. Mr. H. E.
Thurbef, of the Brazilian Steamship Com
pany, when seen this afternoon said: The
reports from Brazil are so meagre and un
reliable as yet that I must decline to ex
press any opinion at present upon the final
outcome of tbe reported revolution as
affecting American trade. If the revolt
becomes general and that country gets into
a universal state of confusion ana uproar
and the seaports become blockaded, several
branches of commerce as carried on by
this country and tbe larger European
countries will suffer. On the other hand,
the South American revolutions have
rarely ever reached such proportions, and
after the first excitement generally simmer
down to operations among opposing fac
tions. Our coffee supply will last four
months without a shipment from Brazil,
and by that time I hope peace will be re
stored. COLLOM'S PATE IS UNKNOWN.
The Forcer Is Awaiting; tbe Verdict of the
Jory, Which Went to Bed.
MiHifEAPOtis, November 18. At the
opening of the Collom trial this morning
Judge Shaw began the opening address to
the jury for tbe defense. His argument was
a powerful one in which he vigorously
scored the attorneys for tbe State for insin
uations that several witnesses for the defense
had perjured themselves. At the con
clusion of Judge Shaw's argument
Cyrus Wellington began in behalf
of the State. He spoke of the relative value
of expert testimony, holding up to ridicule
tbe testimony of Expert Hay, and said that
until Judge Shaw came on the scene Collom
had made no attempt w aeny the forgery.
Judge Eugene Wilson made the concluding
argument for the defense, closing with an
eloquent appeal to the jury in behalf of his
client, his wife and innocent children.
Judge Hooker then began his charge to
thejuryandat6that body retired for de
liberation. At 10 o'cloek the jury were put
to bed and no verdict will be reached to
night. Plenty of OH io (he Hole.

rspsczAti nuo&AX to tub dispatcu.1
San Fban Cisco, November 16. John
James Mago, a quiet, middle-aged, well
dress; man is staying here a few days wait
ing for the Mexican steamer to sail. He
looks prosaic, but his career is as romantic
as that of Monte Cristo.
Mago is now a four times millionaire,
who lives for nine, months of the year at
Paris. Fifteen years ago ho was a poor
English, collector of insects at Guatemala,
and also acted as British "Vice Consul at
San Jose. One day Commandant Gonzales
ordered Mago to appear before him. Mago
sent word he would come in a short time.
This incensed the commandant, who was
ugly with drink, and he sent a file of sol
diers after Mago, and when the bug collector
appeared, ordered 75 lashes laid on his bars
back. This was done thoroughly, and when
finished Gonzales shouted: "Give him 23
more for luck." When Mago recovered,
-which was only after careful nursing, as lm
back was badly cut up, he made formal
complaint to the British Government. The
result was Guatemala was ordered to punish
Gonzales and to pay Mago $500 for every
lash he received. In default of this, En
glish cruisers would shell San Jose and.
other coast cities.
Guatemala readily punished Gonzales-, but
tried hard to evade paying $50,00Q to Mago.
The British, however, were inexorable, and
the poor bug collector was made a rich man
in one day. As he bad more coin than any
one in the country then. President Barnos
entered into partnership with him. Mago
became one of the largest coffee planters and
also secured the exclusive franchise for
building docks along the pprts. No one
can land on or leave one of these docks with
out paying $2 toll to Mago, while he also
levies a tax on all freight. He also owns
valuable mines and tracts of timber. "His
fortune is estimated at 53,000,000, all due to
100 lashes on! his- back.
CREW AND SCHOONER LOST.

Extbeka, Cai, November 16. This
evening the schooner Fidelity, while inward
bound in tow of the tug Banger, waa upset
on the bar and waa totally wrecked, with
the loss of eight of the crew. The tug
Banger shipped a heavy sea, and the mate,
John Sogers, was swept overboard and
The bar was not unusually rough, but the
sea outside was heavy and struck; with great
violence. The tug crossed the bar withont
taking any water, but just as the schooner
bad reached the inner, edge of the bar a.
heavy sea caught her under the port quar
ter, broaching her far to -windward, and
sending- her oyer with all on board. The
tug held ou to tbe capsized vessel for more
than half an hour, but findine both were
drifting into the breaker, was obliged to1
cut the hawser. "Not one of the men on the
ill-fated craft waa seen after she capsized.
The crew consisted of Captain Christopher'
I gon and seven men, and tbe vessel was just
returning irom a voyage to Basts naraDara.
