What Germany Is Alleged To 60 Prepared to Say to Your Uncle Samuel ABOUT TEAT BUSI2TESS IS HAITI. •Will Brook No liiliTfi-i-ein-e in tHe Matter on the Part ol' Hit.- 1'iiitril Stutei." Says a HtrJin Dispatch — Mutiny hi IB "the M^t- t*r" Has Bern Laid Before Our State Department ami Ji Curinto Afl'air with the Kaj-ser L* Imminent. Berlin. Xov. :!0.—The Berliner Tage- blatt says it is reliably informed that the German government only wants monetary reparation from Hayti for the re-cent arrest and imprisonment of Herr Lueders by theHaytian tribunals, but that it will not brook any interference in the matter on the part of the United Stales. Washington, Nov. 30.—The attention of the department of state has been formally directed to the friction that has arisen between Germany and Hayti as a result of the arrest by the officials of the latter country of a half-breed named Lueders. While the department has been unofficially -watching the matter for some time past, it was not until yesterday that the case came formally before it through the appearance there iif Mr. L,eger, the minister from Hayti to Washington. The minister came to consult Assistant Secretary Day, and the attitude of Germany in the Lueders case was discussed. "Sonud Practice" Is H Broad Phras«, The intimation was given out; at the state department that our government, so far, has gone only to the length of instructing Ambassador White at Berlin to watch developments and keep this government informed. He will lodge a protest only in the event of the performance by Germany of some act that is not consistent with justice and international law; something' that is not anticipated here, in other words, the slate department does not fee! that it has a right to interpose so long as the demands of Germany for redress are kept within the bounds of sound practice in international disputes, following in this the precedent set by the last administration whr-n it permitted without protest the lan('.ins nf British troops at Corinto. Nicaragua, to secure indemnity for the ill-treatment »f British consular officers. Oermaiiy Must Xot Be Unj llst It does not follow from this, however, that the administration will look with, unconcern upon any harsh and unjust measures that may be sought to be put in force by Germany toward the little island republic. The department has been informed, that the statement of facts in the- case of Lueders is somewhat misleading;. For instance, the foundation of the claim of Hayti that it had the right to punisn the man as it did lie? in an assertion that he was a. citizen of Hayti. Lueders was born in Hayti of a German father and a native Hayt! woman, and according to the laws of the republic that made the child a full-fledged citizen of Hayti. The person arrested with Lueders for the same offense, a native, full-fledged Haytian, was subjected to exactly the same penalty—SHOO fine and a year's imprisonment. All the Klements of TTar Handy. The H-aytian minister says the repub- lle is preparing for any eventuality, considering that its honor is involved in the present trouble, and that it cannot yield to demonstrations of force by a powerful nation. The minister says that Hayti's ports are unfortified, and that the country has no navy, but has an army of fair proportions. Naturally it could not expect to contend against one of the most powerful nations on the globe, but with the honor of the republic at stake he declares it would prefer to be crushed rather than to yield to what it regards an injustice. The Haytian authorities consider that the Monroe doctrine applies to the present case and for that reason expect that the people of the United States will not approve the crushing of Hayti by a powerful European government. GKRMAVY'S DEMAND O>~ CHINA G'JLDENSUPPE TRIAL CLOSED. Evidence in and the Lawyer* Am at Work Today. Xew York, Xov. 30. — The trial of Mar tin Thorn for the murder of Gulden wjppe was closed last, night so far a* the taking of evidence was concerned. This morning the lawyers for the de fendant and the people summed up anf it is expected that Justice Maddox will charge the jury this afternoon. Thorn himself was a witness called for tho Jerense, and in his story of the murde)' deliberately accused Mrs. Xack of having shotGulder^uppe, and declared tha* when he (.Thorn) reached the Woodsid- cottage between 11 and 1- o'clock on Friday, June 23, the woman met him. at the dnor and told him that Gulden- suppe was lying dead upstairs and that she had shot and killed him. This, said Thorn, was the first intimation he had af the purpose for which Mrs. Xack had rented the Woodside cottage. Up to that moment he had understood she was going to start a baby farm there, and that he was to live with her and share the profits. He said Mrs. Xack begged of him to help her to get j rid of the body and he accompanied her to the room on the second floor, where he found Guldensuppe lying on his side, dead from a bullet wound in the right side of the head. Mrs. Xack told him that she had carried the revolver in her hand covered by a handkerchif, and that as Guldensuppe was looking into a closet she shot him in the side of the head. Then he told how the body was disposed of, but said that Mrs. Xack did the dissecting- thereof instead of himself; otherwise he added nothing new to the story. LUETGERT ON TRIAL ONCE MORE. ' Bold Stand Taken by De Lome in Interpreting the Recent Royal Decree. SAYS IT IS AMPLE AND COMPLETE Shows That Wilhflm Believe* in Skinning- the Black Cat to the Tail. P?kin. Xov. 30.—Inquiries made here in Chinese official circles confirm the statements contained in dispatches from Shanghai giving the substance of the demands made by Baron Von Heyking, the German minister to China, as a result of the murder recently of German missionaries and the destruction of German mission property. Germany, through her minister, asks for the discovery and execution of the murderers of the mis- cionaries Xies and Hennle: the punishment of the implicated officials, including the governor of the Shan Tung province, in which tiart of China the mission is situated: the reconstruction of the missionary building's, and the pay- met;; of an indemnity of 600,000 taels to the relative? of the victims. That, however, is only the beginnning. The pith of the demand is reached in the followir^: The payment of a heavy indemnity to cover the expenses of the German naval expedition and the maintenance of the German force at Kiao- Chou hay, the railroad monopoy of the Shan Tur.g province and the occupation of Kiao-Chou bay as a German coaling station. Chir.a will refuse the demands of Germany, but will express willingness, to make ample reparation for the murder of the missionaries- and for the damage done to the mission property. Russia, it is understood, is not yet helping China, but the latter country has decided not to provoke hostilities an<J tc trust to diptomacyfor a settlementof the difficulties which have arisen in connection with the mission outrages.

Chicago, XOY. 30.—The second trial o£ Adolph L. Luetgert for the murder of his wife began yesterday before Judge Gary and when court adjourned two jurors had been obtained. I^uetgert'a counsellors were Attorneys Harmon and Riese, the latter being a young lawyer. Phalcn severed his connection with tha ease Sunday. The defense at once attacked Judge Gary's jurisdiction of the case, asserting that it should net have been sent outside the criminal court bench. Another demand made by the defense was for more time. The judge said he would be glad to be out of the case, but overruled the motion disqualifying- himself. He said that the attorneys could consult, during the noon re' cess, and if they agreed on another judge he would gladly yield. When the court reconvened the attorneys for the defenseannounced that they had beer unable to reach an agreement with the state us to a judge to hear the case. Harmon, however, entered exceptions to Judge Gary overruling his motion. Harmon then made a motion for a continuance of four weeks, siatingthat both he and Rcise were not perpared to go on, and wisher] time to n»ad the records of the trial. This-was overruled also. When court adjourned two jurors hat) been accepted by the state, although the defense has still the privilege of rejecting them. ]5nyi-ii1tiii|f Declnreil T^ecitimate.

A temporary injunction had been issued restraining the Railway Teamsters;' union and trades council from unlawfully interfering with the business of Jacob Beck & Sons. Judge Hosmer said he would make the injunction permanent so far as violence or disturbances are concerned, but could not interfere with "peaceable distribution . of boycotting circulars, or other legitimate means employed by the unions to accomplish their purpose."

And Gives the Island a. Greater Degree of Home Rule Thau Has O»un4» or Any State in the L'nited States—Shows Where the Spanish Policy Is More Liberal Thau tile British or American According to the Minister's Viti\v. Washington, Xov. 30.—Senor Dupuy j de Lome, the Spanish minister, has received long dispatches from Madrid showing in detail the plan of autonomy which Spain is about to apply to Cuba. While these do not give the text of the new law they explain all important features and clear up doubts which had arisen from the unofficial reports which have come from Madrid. Speaking of the new laws the minister said: "It is a measure which will stand the closest scrutiny, and I am very desirous that the American people should looK into it with care, studying it and comparing it with other constitutional methods of governing colonies. One of the recent criticisms is that this plan of autonomy is the same as the old plan, with some change of detail. Just What the Autonoini«U Asked. "As a matter of fact Ihe new plan IB a complete realization of the policy and platforms of the Autonomist party during the last twenty years. The old plan 1 of autonomy'gave to Cuba an advisory body. It did' not have final authority in making 1 laws, but merely advised as to those laws. Xow, however, the new. law proposes to give Cuba a parliamentary body of full law-making power. The completeness of this legislative power is as great, if not greater, than that enjoyed by Canada or by any state of the United States. This is readily demonstrated by comparing the plan of the ne\v law with that of the British Xorlh American act of 1807, which establishes the present parliamentary system of Canada. dome Kulf as It Is Ju CanadH. "According to the Canadian law the Canadian parliament consists of two bodies. The upper house is made up of members appointed by the crown, each member holding a life tenure, with a, qualification that no member is eligible unless he has an income of $4,000. The provision for the new Cuban upper house is along the same general line, but is far less stringent. Instead of the crown appointing all of the upper house—a? in the case of Canada—the Spanish crown is to appoint only one- half of the members of the upper house of Cuba. The other half are to be elected by the people of Cuba every five years. There is a $4.000 property qualification for membership of the upper house of Cuba, which is the same as that in Canada. Regarding the "Lower House. "The same comparison holds good between the proposed lower house in Cuba and the lower house In Canada. There is a $2,500 property qualification for members of the lower house in Canada and also a qualification as to those who may vote for such members. But in the new plan for Cuba there is no property qualifications as to the electors. It is one man. one vote, the s-ame be he black or white. COMPARKD WITH OVK STATES. Declare* the I-aw Gives Cuba More Home Kule Than They Huve-. "If the new home rule law is compared with the systems prevailing the several states of the United States it will be found that Cuba is to have a far greater measure of cor.trol of her own affairs than do the several states in this country. I-"or instance, she is given control of her postal affairs, control of her banking ard currency, control of her custom*. This last feature is most important, and according to dispatches I have received from Madrid it is as follows: " 'The insular parliament will form its own tariff, fixing both import and export duties. The home government, together with the insular government, will make a sched- ulo of such peninsular and insular products as by common agreement shall enjoy a preferential duty over similar foreign products, which in no case shall exceed :;5 per cent. In case of disagreement in the preparation of said schedule the point in dispute shall be submitted to a committee of members of the corteS consisting of an equal number of Peninsu- lars and Cubans.' "It will be observed that this gives to the Cuban parliament entire control of the tariff with the condition that there shell he preferential duties for Spain not exceeding 3"> per cent. It should be un- dersrood that these preferential duties are not an unusual feature. Ever, under the last reciprocity treaty between the United States and Cuba, which is conceded to have been the most satisfactory reciprocity treaty made by the United State?, there was a preferential duty of 50 per cent, to Spain. Under the new law tiiia is cut down to 35 per cent. Moreover, it should be understood that the preferential duties do not cover all the- tariff schedules, as they did when the United States and Cuba had a reciprocity treaty, but cover only a. limited number of articles. "There is another featurewhichshould be noted. For the first time the government has said officially that Spain will assume a part of the debt of Cuba. The payment of this debt is to be arranged by the cortes. but it is to be on a basis satisfactory to both parties." Recurring 'to the legis-lative powers which Cuba would enjoy the minister was asked if they was not qualified to some extent by the right of approval reserved to the governor general In certain cases. "It will be found on examining the new law," answered the minister, "that tie governor general baa thin reserved right only in three specific cases, while the general rule is that the l*ws JTO Into effect witlurat t*s«TB.

This will be found to b» the case by examinir.gr the British- American act of 1S6T already referred l». In short, there is nothing unusual i» these reservations in a few specific cases of a national character, but it is the universal principle in the constitutional government of colonies." CORNELL CONFESSES HIS CRIME. ills ButrUery of Children at omowoc Cleared Up. Oconomowoc, Wis.. Xov. 30.—Erm«st Cornell has confessed that it was he •»*• slaughtered his two innocent ehildr** one week ago last Saturday morning, and that after committing the deed h» attempted suicide,.and thus is cleaved away the <loud which overhung wilk mystery axtt of the most bloody crimes ever knowr. in this county.
