KELLER Tailor, 311 Market Street, A BITTEE KEELING. Ex-Empress Fredarick an - ; Unwelcome Guest at Paris- Given to Understand That Her Presence Is Undesired—Germans Likely to Resent Her Treatment. AX AWKWARD SITUATION 1 . PARIS, Feb. 27.—Empress Frederick's visit to this city is likely to result seriously. Emperor William's idea of the visit was that it would show Germany's peaceful attitude toward France. But subsequent events prove quite the contrary. It is not at all improbable that M. Herbettc, the French ambassador at Berlin, may be recalled and replaced by some one who will not involve the nation in another diplomatic muddle by inviting a member of the house of Hohenzollernto Paris. Figaro, in a sensational article relative to the presence of the Empress Frederick in this city, says her visit has become embarrassing 1 , and that it is high time she departed. The plan of the French artists for exhibiting 1 their works at Berlin has been abandoned in consequence of the revival of the anti-German spirit. The Patriotic leagiie has been holding 1 daily meetings to protest against the prolongation of the visit of ex-Empress Frederick, of Germany. PAP.IS, Feb. 27.—Ex-Empress Frederick and her daughter visited the Cathedral of ISTotre Dame, the Cluny museum and the Luxembourg gardens Thursday. Excited groups gathered in the lobbies of the chamber of deputies in the evening discussing the Cologne Gazette's article and the effect of the rebuff on the imperious nature of the emperor. In view of the Cologne Gazette's reputation for such angry ebulitions the article fails to have the effect it might have had if prodiiced by a more sober journal. In an interview with a representative of the Gaulois M. Deroulede, after repeating the sentiments expressed in the letter to the newspapers, declared that the whole agitation against Empress Frederick was due to the fact that the empress abandoned her incognito to receive foreign embassadors and visit' Versailles. That the action of the Parisians, and the tone of the newspaper press of Paris will be deeply resented in Berlin nobody for an instant doubts, and'there are-many people who look forward, not without a feeling of apprehension, to the effect that the present ''unpleasantness" may have upon the mind of the young- and •warlike emperor of Germany. The newspapers are running riot in their remarks. M. Clemenceau's paper, La Justice, is the most violent of all. Le Jour says: "Our army is ready, our armament is complete and our reserves are thoroughly trained." Regret has been expressed in many quarters that the prince of Wales did not also come to Paris, as his well- known tact would have been useful in avoiding unpleasantness. Empress Frederick herself has remained very calm and has expressed herself as pleased with the courtesy that has been invariably accorded her by the public. The ex-kaiserin has no fear of an untoward incident marking her visit, and thus far has made no change in her intentions or movements. PAP.IS, Feb. 27.—Empress Frederick of Germany left Paris at 0:30 a. m. !No unpleasant incident marked her departure. The gravity of the situation, however, can be judged from the fact that, acting under advice from high quarters, the empress changedthe lin^ of herroute for fear of being insulted by that portion of the populace which had gradually worked itself into a fever heat of rage over the presence of the imperial visitorin Paris. IB spite of the precautions taken to avoid an unpleasant demonstration by keeping the exact hour of the empress' departure a secret, several hundreds of people gathered about the Gate du Ji'ord and watched the-movements of the empress with considerable interest. The crowd, contrary to general expectation. was civil and quiet, the majority of the men taking off their hats as the empress passed. There were no insulting cries of any description. The empress was as calm and com posed, to all outward appearances, as if she had been in Berlin, surrounded by a bodyguard of loyal Germans. She quickly entered the railroad car which had been secured for her special use and cordially bade adieu to the representatives of the German embassy, .who had accompanied her to the station. : BERLIN, Feb. 27.—The action of the French people' in openly disapproving the visit "of ex-Empress Frederick to Paris, and the rebuffs and insults offered the mother of Emperor William have aroused the ire of the Germans to a remarkable degree. The Cologne Gazette commenting on the conciliatory measures which Emperer "William has made to France, of -which the -visit of ex-Empress Frederick is regarded • as proof, says: "The Frencb have a. right to think of revenge, toni they have, no right to injure the I G"linps of the head of this empire and his mother by insults that cou'-d "be expected only of scoundrels. .The German people feel deeply the outrage upon the person of their, einperor, and they hove, a right to expect the French . people and government to give ample satisfaction and to.;,wipe out the stain upon the.hon'nr of France. by energetically calling to order th«. rmseiMble wretches'who have Insultecl'the'ex- -Empress Frederick." ' The North German Gazette regrets the fit of ill humor of the French press and says: "It is immaterial whether French, artlsta undur the pressure or public opinion, are forced to abiinflon the idea of exhibiting works in Berlin or not. But it is another thing, if at public meetings the grossest insults and vile threats are uttered against the ex-emprsss and the public accepts them without a protest." HAS HE RESlGNEoT United States Treasurer ITtutun Said to Have Given Up His Office—Ills Alleged .Successor. EVAXSVII.UJ, Ind., Feb. 27.—A private dispatch from Washington announces that ,T. A. Lemcke, ex-state treasurer of Iridiai>i, has been appointed United States treasurer, vice Huston, resigned. The truth of this report is not doubted, for it is understood that Mr. Lemcke was tendered the place three months ago, when Treasurer Lemcke was urging his resignation. Mr. Lemcke is now in New York negotiating a state loan. He is a man of wealth and influence and popular in Indiana political circles. He is an excellent financier, and his administration erf the affairs of the state treasury was above criticism. ' The senate in secret session, confirmed the nomination of Henry W. Blair as minister to China. ^ WASHINGTON. Feb. 27.—Neither the president nor United States Treasurer Huston will either confirm or deny the report that United States Treasurer Huston has tendered his resignation. The impression prevails, however, th at he has tendered his resignation. EXTRAORDINARY BARGAIN!

The Cnce Famous Lecturer Said to Have Become an Inmate of an Insane Asylura. IS SHE CRAZY? , Pa., Feb. 27.—The report that Anna M.

Though receiving" the best of care no improvement in her condition 1 has been noted, and. at a consultation it was . decided that change of scene and absolute quiet was the only hope that the lady had for complete recovery. Accordingly she was removed quietly from her home Thursday, but where she has been taken to her friends decline, to say. They emphatically declare,. however, that she has not. been .taken to an asylum and deny that her mind .has become unbalanced.

"Well, wfille you are at it,". Miss Dickinson continued, "send one to "President Harrison also; tell him that the women of, this country want protection." Miss Dickinson is 50 years of age. She gave all her wealth away to the poor. She bought property for all the poor people for miles around. :..•''. '••- BLAIR GOES TO CHINA. Tlie.
