Bill Vtm Caprivi says Germany must be Prepared for art , Emergency, Shews Danger of Ultra Anni liilation in the Next International Struggle* BHRUN, Nor. 24.—The long-tooked- for event of the present session of tho relchstag occurred yesterday'. The army bill was introduced by Chancellor TOU Caprivi, who made a most important speech upon the relations existing between Franco and Qcrmnny. He said he did not intend to justify the bill by referring 1 to a war in sight or by indulging: in g'loomy foreboding's, "I will disclose the whole truth," he added. "We peace with all nations and encounter no difficulty in any quarter in maintaining tho dignity of the nation. His ajesty the Emperor has justly remarked that Heligoland was the lant piece of the earth we desired to acquire. Germany will not provoke war, for there is no prize to gain by victory, but neither will she undertake to prevent war any more than she did in 1870." The Chancellor then referred to the alleged forgery by Prince Bismarck of the famous Ems dispatch, which precipitated the Franco-Germa'n war, and read the genuine dispatch sent by Privy-Councillor Abeken to the Prus- slan foreign office from Ems on July 13, 1870, two day*, prior to the declaration of th'o Franco-Prussian war. .' Referring to Russo-German relations, the Chancellor said: "Friendship has existed between Germany and'Russiafor centuries past, and the Emperor Alexander himself was an important personage in 'the maintenance of the friendly relations. The present Czar is one of the noblest- minded and most peaceful and loyal policy of Germany. There are in Russia, however, hostile currents working against ns, which,-since the successful achievement of German arms and diplomacy, hnve risen above the interests of Russia. "Yet it must not be concluded, because Russia is developing her ai-my, that war is imminent. We must assume from her preparations that Russia's next war will be to the westward; These preparations arouse no anxiety at present, but they might constitute a danger Jo us. It must be remembered that Price Bismarck, during the reign of the laie Cxar Alexander, spoke of a positive threat of war from Hussia. The government has used every endeavor to main? the tele-graphic communications with Russia, but desires that- ll'ie current shall not be withdrawn from the connecting links with Austria and Italy. There is undeniable a rapproacln'nont between Russia nncl France, in tho face of which w« cannot yield Alsace- Lorraine nor break off our relations with Austria. The strengthening' of our armaments constitutes no threat to Russia. We only want to repel a possible attack. We must think of war with the probability of having to pr eso n t two fro n t». "Our whole position among tlio nations depends upon our military strength We'have the highest opinion of our allies, and the Oreibund is nowhere so popular as in Germany. But even the Dreibund is weaker in troops til an are France and Russia. Germany must always take the chief burden upon herself, because she must watch two frontiers. Germany has lost her military supremacy since lai'O. not by f.ault of the jrovem.-netit or of the army of the reichetag, b'ut been use tho conqueror Is IBB?, inclined t.o make sacrifices than the conquered. After Sedan a different feeling existed than after Jena. Our neighbors have increased their military strength in an undemonstrative manner, and only after recourse to makeshifts. But, while slow, their course has been steady and sure." "3"he chancellor's speech was followed by prolonged applause. Hen- Richter made a short speech and the house then adjourned.

There were not many persona present when the jury filed 'in. The' prisoner was not released, he, bavin* yet to answer to the charge of riot. When court convened Attorney Thomas M. Marshall delivered his address for the defense. He was foU lowed by District Attorney Uurieigh who closed the case for the proseou- tion. During his speech he said: "You must take the law as the court will give it to you. The defense is an alibi, that he was not on the mill prop. erty that day. If this is true, why i n in the name of common sense don't they stand on that line? If this is true, why all the time wasted in talking about an armed invasion of the sacred soil? Why waste time to argue the rights of labor? If Critchlow wasn't there that day, why need he care In his defense to show who first lired the shots or anything else? The fact that they went outside of the alibi and attempted to justfy the mur- dor shows that they have no faith in their plea of alibi. If he was not there that day, why need he care who com- inenced the trouble or who owned tho property? H ho wasn't there he clearly isn' t guilty, and were this plea of alibi honest they would stanW on it, and it alone. "I say Critchlow was in the mill yard when Connor was shot. Six disinterested witnesses swear the defendant was in the mill yard that day with a gun. If it was Harrison Critchlow who was in the mill yard that day, and who the defense say was mistaken for the defendant, why didn't they produce him? Why didn't they put him on the stand and let him swear he was the man who was mistaken for the defend- • ant? Had they done this wo could not have got over it. It would have ended our case." Mr. Burleigh devoted over half an hour to the question of alibi, and claimed the witnesses for the defense who had attempted to prove the alibi had not told the truth. At the close of the district attorney's address Mr. Erwin asked that the defense be allowed an exception to the truthfulness of the following: ' 'That the Pinkcrtons went under tiny sheriff or officer; that Lovejoy or Potter had any right to enter upon said property; that the people opposing the landing were ill advised; that they expected to meet the sheriff by appointment, and we ask the court to so charge." ' Judge Kennedy began his charge to the jury at 0:35. "In answer to tho request of the counsel of the defense," he said, "i will say you must not take the statements, of counsel unless these statements are warranted by the evidence." The court then defined murder and its various degrees, and what constituted of the grades. Referring to riot the judge said: "A riot is the tumultuous assemblage vf three or more persons for an unlawful purpose, and any person who is present and not attempting to suppress it is priina facie a participant and a principal, and anyone who joins the rioters after they are assembled is equally guilty. There are no aiders and abettors; all are principals and all are guilty of tho acts of such riots. When killing is done in pursuance of a common design all are guilty of tho murder. If there is evidence that the rioters had determined to take life in order to carry out their object and ; purpose all are guilty of murder in the first degree. "If the jury is satisfied that the defendant took part in the riot of July 6, which resulted in the death of T, J. Connor and that it was the common intent of such rioters to resist the landing- of these men on the barges to the extent of taking life, then he is guilty of murder in the first degree, as are all who took part in such riot. If you believe there was no malice, that the killing was done in the heat of combat, then you can convict him of manslaughter. If you believe these rioters met for a common purpose, to resist this landing, but not to the extent of taking life, then a verdict of murder in tho second degree j could be rendered." The court* then ' read the definition of alibi and the close scrutiny which should be given to it. "The defendant is entitled to all reasonable doubt, a reasonably fair doubt arising out of the evidence submitted, not from anything outside the case." lie closed at 3:25 and the jury retired. At 0 p. m. they brought in a verdict of acquittal. Mr. Critehlow, however, was taken in custody on the charge of riot. He will probably be granted bail. lilew Up His HiviU's T.iiundrv.
