Bismarck ".Refuses- to Exempt the
Uieotogical Students From

The Strikes Hare Increased the Activity of
PORTUGAL MOXALTJEISTS ARE SCARED.
Dom Peer V0.1 Issue a Manifesto Exactly SUtlrj
The Betchstag passed a bill exempting
theological students from military service,
but the German Government hat refused to
accept it. The reason given Tor its passage
is that many members were absent fixing
their fences on the American plan. The
Socialists are taking a Very active part in
tCOPTlUGHT, lSa.ET-TnisXEW YOBS ASSOCIATE
Beblix, December 14. The" success of
the Center party in the vote in the Eeichs
tag relieving all theological students of the
obligation to military service has stirred up
a good deal of a breeze in the upper vorld
of.politics, and Priuce Bismarck complains
iu regard to it that the highest interests ol
the Government service aro neglected for
personal interests of individual Deputies.
The Tote was, it appears, rather a snap
Tictory for the Centerists, and does not
imply that ttiey have been able to make any
political combination which would give
them the controlling voice in legislation,
Which that vote seemed to Imply they had
secured. Many of the Cartel party were
absent nnd the'Centerists seized the advan
tage due to that happy chance.
BISMAECK IS PIEM.
The jCatioaal Zcilung announces that the
Government will not accept tbe decision,
and thus the accident ol absence of Cartel
deputies will not change the tiled policy of
the Government on this very important sub
ject. It was indeed not to be expected that
to grave an infringement of tbe principle of
the-May laws should pass unchallenged be
fore these laws themselves shall become
Prince Bismarck, iu a natural explosion
of dissatis action with this vote, wired Herr
Boetticher for an explanation, Hauling him
over the coals as the man who should have
prevented it. Herr Boetticher promptly
threw the blame on "everybody involved in
the Cartel combination, and explained that
since the reopening of the Beiclutag they
have not been in their places, but nave been
away doing what in the United States yon
call "taking care"of their fences."
They were attending to their electoral ins
terests W .home, ami letting the May laves
and other things in the Reichstag take car
of themselves. Thereupon Jupiter has thun
dered a little, and his answer to Herr Boet
ticher is to tbe effect that he himself will re
turn to his official residence in the first
week in January; that important measures
of government must be settled in tbe Reich
stag before the middle of February, when he
desires to dissolve that "body, and he in
structs the Minister to keep the Government
groups together more effectively in spile of
the electoral preoccupations of the members.
Prom which it will be noted that in the
Bismarckian understanding of these things
only Boettichc is to blame for that aston
ishing vote. In fact, your Congressional
cattle will always go as you want them to if
your driver is ot the right sort. Herr Boet
ticher's labor will not be an easy one.
Every day has its caucusses and conventions
in every populous center of the Umpire, and
sitlinp are con tinned from, day to day of:
vrgzuizing committees of Conservatives.
national Liberals, Progressists, Socialists
andlhe rest. There is, indeed, an exceed
ingly great political activity.
SOCIALISTS AT "WOnK.
Though all are active, the Socialists are
pushing things more energetically than the
others. They have alreidy brought forward
205 candidates. Their National Committee
is a strong one Bebel, Grillenuerger.Leibe
kneelit and Meistersinger. It assumes ab
solutely authority for the party and an
nounces mat ail questions relating to the
elections must be addressed to the commit
tee and be decided by it.
In districts where the party is too poor to
face tbe expense of election the faithful
must make their appeal to the committee,
before the 1st of January, and must name
tbe sum required to make up the deficiency.
All Socialists are instructed to attend the
general electoral assemblies to vindicate
their principles, but to abstain from inter
fering with ' purely party reunions. They
must not, that is to say, introduce any
elements of 'nction to embarrass the smooth
working of the party machin :.
The manifesto concludes uith a few earn
est and eloquent words on the importance
of ardor and energy in the great electoral
conflict and on the importance of tbe '.act
that all men brought to the sront should be
men of unblemished reputation.
THE OOVEKMIENT FEABFTJL.
The comments of the journals of the Car
tel party upon all this disclose an appre
hension in the Government groups that the
very admirable organization of the Social j
ists and their party discipline will make
them troublesome customers and may ena
ble them to carry many seats. The Social
ists believe they will have 35 members in
the next Reichstag.
It is certain that the strikes are a fact of
jrreat moment in the electoral game, and
Prince Bismarck may have his innings, as
the Socialists are having theirs and. in
deed, have had them iu the-fomentation of j
toe trouble. J. lie strike giant gains in pro
portions constantly, like the vapory figure
that arose from tbe Arabian fisherman's jar
and seems likely to fill the political
In spite of the supposition that "Westpha
lia had been appeased that strike is extend
ing. In the Saar mines 30,000 men are em
ployed, and 7,000 oi these are now out, while
a strike of the whole number is threatened
and is daily looked for. In Lower Silesia
it is decided there shall be a general turn
out upon January 1 unless there is an ad
vance ot 10 per cent in the wages and the
concession that eigut hours is a day s work.
COlirLAINTS TEOM ALL SIDES.
Employers declare that it is impossible to
meet these demands. Complaints have
-reached the Government that the Socialist
agitators are taking great part in the strike
-movement and have been addressing meet
ing of the strikers at Dortmund, Saar and
; other places. Two Belgian Anarchists were
', arrested at Chemnitz while propagating
their doctrines among the strikers there.
., Herr Boetticher, in a conference with the
detective of "Westphalia mines, referred to
the importance of the speediest possible set-
He pointed out that discontented men, I
ana especially men lor wnose discontent
there was any good reason, were a source of
- strength to the Socialist party, which nat
urally helped to make it dangerous, and he
urged that concessions be made to the men.
Immediately after this conference the
Minister ordered the municipal authorities
to fill all conspicuous places iu the strike
district bearing the recent decision of the
SupremeCourt for discouraging the elo
qnenceof agittaors. This decision is to the
cfiecthat any person exciting others to any
' act contrary to their contracts violates tbe
law, and is'punishable lor tbe offense.

ISFECIAI. TELEOIUll TO TUX DISrATCII.l
Philadelphia, December 14. Gen
eral Hastings' declaration of intentions re
garding his candidacy for the Republican
nomination for Governor, has stirred the
politicians oPthis city into thought upon
the subject, and many of the local leaders,
it is believed, will now go quietly to work
to "set up" their districts, in order to secure
control of the delegates to the coming State

ant Governor and Secretary oi Internal
Affairs. As tbe Governor and Jjieutenent
Governor are ineligible for re-election,
there will be successors chosen to the
present incumbents of those offices.
In the matter of Secretary of Internal
Affairs, the present incumbent, Thomas J.
Stewart, having declared himself a candi
date for re-election, the eeneral belief is that
he will have no opposition, unless the com
plications of the Gubernatorial fizht force
such a condition of things as to make It a
necessity for the candidate winning the
nomination for Governor fo throw his
strength to soma other person than the
present Secretary of Internal Aflairs.
THE CONCEDED CANDIDATES.
It is generally conceded that there are
only two real candidates in the fight for the
nomination for Governor, with two strong
"dark horses" bringing up the rear. Sena
tor Delaitfater. of Crawford county, and Ad
jutant General Hastings, of Center county,
are classed as the real candidates, with
Major E. A. Montooth, of Allegheny, and
Secretary of the Commonwealth Charles "W.
Stone, ot Warren county, as the "marked
Little can he said at this time regarding
the chances for winning, as from present ap
pearances it looks as though each candidate
was to be allowed to make a full showing of
strength before receiving the Senatorial nod
which will eventually decide the race. Gen
eral Hastings declares that Senator Qnay
will not interfere in the contest, while Sen
ator Delamatcr's friends go on fighting as
thongh they were sure of their ground, and
without assistance from either ot the United
MK. ANDREWS' STATEMENT.
Chairman Andrews, of the Republican
State Committee, says h.e is steering clear of
both sides, and giving his attention to the
details or the party machinery, getting
things into shape to make a winning fight,
if possible, for whichever of the candidates
succeeds in winning the nomination. He
resolutely refuses to express a preference for
either ot the candidates, but as he is a
friend and neighbor of Senator Delamater,
it is like! v to suppose that he would, if it
were advisable, be fonnd ;worklng''irr"the
Ills expected that in addition to-E. K.
Martin, of Lancaster county, and Senator
AVatres, of Lackawanna county, who' are at
present most prominently mentioned for the
Republican nomination for Lieutenant
Governor, there will be a little army of other
candidates, whose ambitions would be satis
fied were they to secure the nomination for
the second place on the ticket. Senator
Watres is well known in his section of the
State, and will no doubt be strongly sup
ported. He has a large number ot iriends
who have expressed themselves in sympathy
with him, and he will rally to his support a
number of delegations from the surrounding
A FEIENDLT EIVALET.
E. K. Martin, of Lancaster, fs also well
thought of, and on account or the friendly
relations existing between the present
leading candidates and Senator Quay, it is
believed that the contest for the Republican
nomination for Lieutenant Governor will be
somewhat in the shape of a friendly rivalry
Jor higher political honors.
In the matter of the nomination of a can
didate for Lieutenant Governor much will
hinge upon the outcome of the contest for
the first place on the ticket. As is nsually
the case when big fights are going on, com
binations ana counter-combinations are
continually being made, and it may be that

BUBBLE ON THE JUMP.
A Neat Bit of Scbemlntt on the Part of Baroa
Gondorlz An Order Issued by Para
That Will Keep Prices Dp lo
tho Top Notch.
, tSFXCIAlV-TXxroUAU TO TUB DISPATCH. 1
HewYcTrk, "December 14. One of the
chief things talked about on the down-town
Exchanges and among merchants in the
South American trade to-day was the order
just issued by the Provincial Government
of Para. " compelling alt tbe rub
ber houses in Para to pay to tbe
SGovernment, for the credit of the Com-
panbia Mercantll-i-a small local company
laPara 20 reis, or three-eighths of a cent,
for every kilogramme of rubber exported.
The strange news was first received on
Thursday. .It was confirmed the day after,
and agaia to-day, but merchants
though another cablegram received to-day
from J. C, G. Veannn, Baron Gondoriz, the
head of the Companbia Mercantil, is fur
ther confirmation. A prominent local rub
ber meichant said to-day:
This edict of tbo Para government seems a
strange one to Americans and It is strange.
Nevertheless, to us in the trado it )s not ex
actly unexpected or unaccountable. Baron
Gondoriz was bere three or four years aco. and
lie tb en openly advocated tbe policy of his
company's fighting for and securing this enor
mous concession. He is a man of remarkable
fertility ot mind in bis busiuess enterprises,
and is always advocating bold and orig
inal plans. lie carries out bis Ideas,
too, with reuiirkablo vigor. For years
be has been pressing this thing
upon tbe Para Government. He has argned
that the price or rubber in Para was too low
and that iu would be to the advantage of all
concerned there to lme prices raised. The
benefit ot low prices, be used to siy, went to
the exporters who were almost entirely foreign
ers. The commerce ot Para is mostly In rub
ber, ot course, and here Is where Mr. Veanna
wanted the reign of-hlgh values to come in.
He made representations to the Para Govern
ment that if an export rebate of say from one
half to five-eighths of a cent a pound
were given to bis companions, he
could so increase the capital of
his company that it conld maintain
tbe high prices. Then he guaranteed that
prices should not go below 2,500 reis per kilo
gramme. That is. between 300 and 40U reis more
than the present prices. He represented to tbe
Legislature of tbe province of Para that as ex
port duties were aa valorem, the Treasury
would get a pecuniary advantage, from the in
creased price of robber, much greater than the
comparatively small concession granted to his
company. Air. Veanna Is a Liberal and a man
of great influence. His company is the only
native exporting company in Para, with tbe
exception of one or two. The change of Gov
ernment in Brazil and Para has given Mr.
Veanna the chance and power, It seems, td
carry out his scheme.
PBICES GOING UP.
Actloa of the Drnzillan Government Won't
Affect Local Trade.
tail suit scarcely vreuiv ji, ui-
A Dispatch reporter visited several I
large dealers in this city for the purpose of
ascertaining just what effect the action of j
the Provisional Government would have on
local trade. One of the persons visited was
Mr. Philllps,of the firm of J. & H. Phillips.
Mr. Phillips said:
"The local trade will be very little
affected, if any. Rubber is advancing in
price; but it is a legitimate movement,
based solely on the exigencies of the trade.
Since September rubber has advanced 19
ceuts a pound, or from 60 cents to 79 cents,
and will go even higher. There is no crude
rubber handled in Pittsburg."
A gentleman in the office of the Revere
Rubber Company agreed with Mr. Phillips
as to the causes of the advance, and further
stated that the scarcity of the trees from
which the crude, liquid rubber is obtained
was a prime cause of the advance.
"The trees are becoming scarcer every
year," he said, "and rubber will continue to
advance in price. The business has been
very good since the beginning of the year,
but we are now passing through our dull

Even the Empire State FnHa Behind Her to
Kabbnth febool WorU.
In discussing the question of the results
achieved by the evangelical Sabbath school
interest ot the country yesterday with Con
troller Morrow, he, searched out some very
gratifying figures to tbe people of Pennsyl
vania. The report of tbe last National Sab
bath School Convention showed the Keystone
State to be away ahead, beating New York,
both in number of schools and number of
attendants. He said some of tbe accounts
gjven t tne Sabbath school statistics of ihe
world did not do justice to the subject, as
the full returns had not been made, and in
maDy. piaces no organitation had been
' effected and no report could be "made.
in the TJnltid States, he said, there were
, 107,824 evangelical Sabbath schools, with
i.inn.iiu tearhpra iinri X 345 431 scnoiars.
To show the method by which Pennsylvania
was done injustice to,-the Controller quoted
Pittsburg, which is twenty-third in the list,
as only credited with 73 Sabbath schools,
1,840 teachers and 16,660 scholars oi all de
nominations 18,400 attendants altogether.
The actual tact is that there are 98 schools
belonging to the association in Pittsburg
and 9i in AHegbenv, and, the Butler Street
M. E. Church alone has from 800 to 1,000
scholars in its enrollment. The State shows
up in tbe report 9,415,535 people engaged in
Sabbath school work, but the Controller
thinks the estimate could safely be advanced
20 per cent without any error.

Murray Yerner yesterday, isubehalt of the
Pittsburg and Birmingham Passeneer Rail
way Company, filed exception ia Jhe mak.
terot tne bond given by tne nraourg, vir
ginia and Charleston Railroad Cbmpany'to
the street ear company to coyer damages f5r
laud abont to be appropriated .by the rail'
road. Mr. Verner claims tint the
street car company is also ' a cor
poration formed under the laws of
Pennsylvania with the right of emi
nent domain Itself, and that the land about
to be appropriated is necessary for its ex
istence and exercise of its rights and fran
chises. He also claims that the property is
not necessary for the purposes and business
of the railroad.
Mr. H. Sellers McKee, President of the
Birmingham Company, was seen at his
home last night by a DISPATCH reporter.
When questioned as to the cause of Mr.
Yerner 8 action, Mr- McKee said :
-'The filing of the exceptions is merely a
formal action on the part of our company to
put the matter on record. There is no
trouble between the two companies, and our
relations are -perfectly amicable. The prop
erty In question is just back of tbe site of
oar proposed iiower house, and tbe railroad
wishes to build a trestle over one end of it.
We are willing that the trestle be built,
provided, of course, that it is constructed in
a substantial manner. It may, in time,
prove a convenience to us, because if we
should ever cease to use gas as a fuel, we
could have coal delivered at our very door
by theTailroad. There is no trouble."
