Berlin, Feb. 12. Tho official Beich
sanzelger this uventng, published tho
"In outer to definitely clear up the
question, so fur us It affects Geimnny,
In legaid to the attitude of thu poweio
In the spiing of 189S, iclullw to thu

Amcilcnn conflict, wo publish two
documents, which follow: Thu first Is
dated Berlin, April 15, 189S, and Is ad
dressed to the empeior by Count Von
Buelow, then seeietury of state. Count
Yon Buelow tiansmlts to tho empeior
a telegiam from Dr Von Holleben,
dated Washington, as follows:
" 'The Biitlsh ambassador today took
the initiative, in a very remaikuble
manner, in a new collective step of the
repiesentatives of tho great powers
beio. Wo suppdso tho queen regent
made lepiesentntlons to tlieueen of
Bngland. In this sense the' six rep
iesentatives, at the lequest of the
Biitlsh ambassador, are telegiaphlng
to their governments In the sense which
" 'In view of the uttitude or congiess,
no hope of peace can any longer be
entei tallied, und thu geneial opinion
is that thu powers also would hae no
objection to war. A good basis for
fiesh negotiations appealed to bo af
foided by the note of the Spanish
minister, Apiil 10. If this view Is shaied
by the government It seems advisable
to dispel the erroneous notion here that
mined Intel entlon In Cuba meets with
the support of tho civilized ,woild, (Tho
president in his message of December
said it was only In that case that
he desliod Intoi ventlon.) The represen
tatives or tho poweis hete think In
these clieumstauees that the gieut
poweis might dliect tho attention of the
Ameilcan government to thu Spanish
note or Apiil 10, and might decline
that Intel ventlon did not appear to
them to be justified. This declination
might take the ioim of a collective note
fiom tho poweis to the leprosentutlves
ot the United States. Such a docu
ment would pioduce a gieater Impies
slon, and thu lepiesentutlves of the
poweis hero would not then Incur the
list; of nppeatlng only to lepeat their
Hi. st step, which the president, In his
latest message, has not even deigned
to mention. ,ln thu event of an identical
note being decided upon, It would be
advisable to publish It Immediately, In
oider that the civilized woild, to whose
uuthoiity the appeal Is made, mny be
absolve from repioach hi approving
of this attack.'
"Dr. Von Holleben adds:
" 'Peisonally, I leguid this demon
stiatlon somewhat coldly.'
The Emperor's Note.
"And to this concluding sentence of
the umbussador, the emperor appended
the following mat gluul note:
" 'I tcgaid It us completely tutllo and
puiposeless and thcretoie piejudid.il. I
am against this step.'
"Di. Von Holleben nlso subsequent

Groton, Mass., Feb. 12 If Theodole
Boosevelt, jr., continues for the next
twenty-four hours In his present con

President and Mrs. IJoosovelt to believe
that their son's vitality will be sumo
lent for him to meet and pass success
fully the;cii3l.s In his disease which Is
looked for some time tomoriow, and
on Friday morning he will be prac
tically out of danger.
Tonight he is considered to be better
than last night, and the same can be
said of his two schoolmates, Howard
F. Potter, of New York, and William
Gammell, jr., of Piovldence.
This report, which was given out by
Mr. Cortelyou, at 9 o'clock tonight, was
the last of tho four Issued dining tho

ing or unfuvoiuble natuie.
The first came cuily in the morning'
and stated that the night had been a
good one, and this was confirmed later
after the motnlntr evaminntions by
the phslclans, und In addition It was
said that should the ravorable condi
tion continue for forty-eight hours the
danger would bo nasyed.
Again, at 3 o'clock, word came that
the status or the case was unchanged,
but that the conditions continued fa
voiablo. At that time, however, no
mention was made us to whether the
crisis had been parsed or was near.
But after thu examination by tho doc

ly said that the cilsls In the light lung,
that in the left having been passed,
would piobably bo reuched befoie to
morrow night. So confident aie the
president and his wife that their son
pass thiougli the cilsls In good
snape that the president is aheudv
making some slight prep.uatlons to

Chicago, Fob. 12. Piofessor Chuilcs
W. Peuison, whoso loient utterances
against tho infallibility of certain por

comment In Methodist chinch elides
today, resigned us professor of ttngllsh
lltoiatuie ut Nothwestern University.
The loslgiuulon, It Is stated, was vol
untuiy. Piofessor Pearson also asked
for a lettei of dlsmhsal rrom the Meth
odist church. The letter was given, but
ufterwutda lecalled, as Its possession
by Dr. Pearson would Indicate that
he was In good standlrig'In the chinch.
The piofessor Is to continue In charge
of his classes until n successor is found
and his salaty Is to continue until Jan
unry 1, 1903.
In legatd to his seeking a letter of
dismissal from the church Piofessor
"I made an attempt to Inaguiute a
new policy, but the chunges proposed,
though I jdo.not doubt that they will
be accomplished In the comparatively
near future, aie not welcome. I
deemed It my duty to make my plea

The plea having been rejected, It
seems equally niv duty to withdraw

ON A MINER
Anthony Sinisky Found in a Mine
Chamber Unconscious from a
Special to the htranlon Iribuni.
Plttston, Feb. 12. Anthony Sinisky, a
Polander whose home is at 71 Elder
stieet. Rxeter botough, lies at the
Plttston hospital in an unconscious
condition, with'soveiul bad luulses on
his head and probably Internal in
juiles. His condition Is seilous and
doubtf are oxpiossetl as to his recov
ery. According to the testimony ut a
hearing befoie Squire T. P. Mackln at
Exelcr borough today, Sinisky Is a
victim of a brutal underground tinged)-.
He was taken to tho hospital
fiom the Exeter colliery nt a late hour
last night, he having been found In a
cluinibei In that mine In an uncon
SlnMty Is a miner In the Checker
vein. He Is u mauled man, about :i2
yeais of age, and lives with his wife
and one child on Elder' street. He was
at work )estetday as usual, but failed
to rotuin homo from work. Fi lends
went to the mine in seal eh of him, and
about 10 o'clock last night discovered
him In another mlnoi's chamber, about
100 yards from his own. The man was
unconscious and was bleeding fiom
bruises on the head. An axe lay close
by, and there was blood on It, giving'
the lmpiesslon that this was the wea
pon usetl by tho assailant. He wus
liunledly taken fiom the mine and
sent lo the hospital, wheio he wai
still unconscious at 4 o'clock this af
ternoon. As Sinisky lay between the tails In
front of a mine ear, close up to the
face of tho chamber in which he was
found, theie v,' a keg of powder on
his back, u If ho had been cai tying it
with a stiup. Close by his side was
a couple of mine drills, nnd a heavy
chain, which Is used to pull the mine
car close to tho face of the chamber.
The inlnei 's tool box hi an adjoining
chamber had lnvn broken open and
the above-mentioned ai tides taken
therefiom. Eveiy Indication was that
Sinisky had llngeied after tho other
woikmen had letlted and was stealing
their tools and powder. The position
of the body as found gave thu (mpres-
soln that he had lust stooped under
tho mine car to unhook the chain fiom
the uxle, hi cuder to carry It uway,
when he was assaulted.
Friends of the victim, however,
place no confidence In this theory, and
say that the man hud been toully dealt
with' that he had been lined Into tho
cluuuber, nssaulted und the body then
placed In the manner above desnlbed.
Peter Llnow'sky, another Polander, has
been uu ested on the charge of having
lommltted the deed.
Llnow'sky Is not an emplo)e of tho
mine, It seems, but was In theie look
ing for wink dm lug the day. Men on
their way Into the initio In the morning
said tliey saw him and a companion
lying on tho "gob" In one of the chain
hers, as If lu hiding, hill they paid no
attention to them. This mmuiiig Liu
owsky's pipe was found In f i out of the
mine car, dose by the Injured man,
and this Is taken us conclusive evi
dence thut he was In the vicinity at
tho lima the cilme was committed.
