C'niCAun, Kali. 7.—The Hcrftlil has the following from Minneapolis, Minn:, P. H. Moore, a gentleman well known in this city, and of the inoHt reputable character, has just returned from an extended tour of the northern Wisconsin region, where be declares that, several hundred women are held in slavery ot the most infamous description. Young girls are bought and sold like slaves In the south In-fore the warp only their treatment and condition are much worse. He said: "I have traveled all through the section where the inoft notorious of these dlvee are locate I, and by representing myself first as a procurer and afterward as lh* proprietor of a dive looking for girls, I have been able to see for myself what the papers have never dared publish. You may have seen in tbepapeiH that Governor Rusk, of Wisconsin, sent three detectives to visit this locality of whloh I spsak, and that thoy found nothing of the . kind. Now, I was with one of these detectives part of the time. He saw the same things I did, and it it wan_ not fo> the money which he . was > paid by these wretches who are, hold- Ing girls In slavery worse than death, the officers 1 ' reports would corroborate mine. . Theee wretches do not deal In prostitutes, lul have a lot of miserable scoundrels stationed here iu Minneapolis, St, Paul and Milwaukee who are constantly on the watch to hire virtuous young women as school tenohen, sewing-glrU, dining-room girls or chambermaids. After they are safely landed In one of the supply depots they never get out aguln except as slaves to dive-keepers, who, ufter Inspection, purchase them." All these dlvm nro guarded by large, fierce dogs to prevent the girls from escaping, and one den near Washburn, which was kept by a man named Wade, was inclosed by a board fence in addition to ttie guard of dogs. Thia place of Wade's was finally closed by the authorities on. account of several murders being cornrnittorLtliere, He,then sold Lao girls, who had boon Inmates at his place, to Jack Mahoney, a dive-keaper near Ashland, for tUX). None of tho-ie dives Is In the villages, but all ore located back In the woods from one to two miles distant, "One of t(ie main supply depots which I visited was situated In Diamond City, on the Boo rond, and was kept by a character known u» Big Ike, He had fourteen girls. I represented myself at this place ne a keeper of a dive looking tor girls, and was, therefore, able to obtain considerable Information about the way victims wore obtained. When a girl i» aold to a dive-keeper everything is taken awny from her, and she Is given a Mother Hubbard dress and a pair of slippers, for which $25 Is charged. This amount, with the amount of the purchase money paid for her, is entered on the books against her, and lu case she manages to communicate with any of the authorities, and they demand her release, this charge Is brought forward to show that she Id In their debt and that they have a right to hold her. The dive vipers are not often put to this trouble, for they have plenty of money and are able to control the authorities as well as the pre&s. "Charles Lcclair, of Hurley, owns three dives—one at Hurley, one at Hayward, and one at Filleld.. I saw a letter which he wrote to a lumber firm, advising them to sell out and go Into the same business.. He told them of th > profits in his business. While I was at Lecluli'a place at Hurley^ six girls were brought there from Minneapolis. One ot them refused to submit to a brutish-looking follow, when she was set upon and kicked, bruised, and,beaten so that she was unable to leave bor'bed when I last saw her, six weeks after. TUe others saw there was no escape and spbmUted. There were thirty-two girls In this dive., While I was at Bill Anderson's dive at Eagle river I heard a girl screaming in the bar-room, and on going In found a small, frail-looking girl, about IS yttftrs old, lying On the floor, with tha blood runulajf'out of her mouth, while the burly bartender, with his knees upon her breast, was choking her. Several men stood* about the room. Tha cause of thta horrible .tcen« was the refusal of the -poor young girl to submit to the attentions of half a score of male, brutes, who bad been selected by the proprietor. I afterward succeeded In getting the girl liberated, Bha told me she wax hired In Milwaukee to do housework In a family consisting of a man and his wife, who were represented as being In northern Wisconsin. Instead she was brought to this place. There were, twenty-«ix girls In the dive. ...-..•- ^ "To show you bow the people ot Wisconsin lock at this truffle I will relate a little experience I had at Ashland. I was at a low variety dive kept by John Gross, when Mark L. Barmnn, editor of The Torch of Liberty, published at Wausau, made a speech on this matter in which he excused. It, became, ha said, the boys must have some way to enjoy themselves.' This la but an example ot the way.the people in northern Wisconsin look at this matter.' There are several girls In this oity now who have escaped from" the dives, and it seems to me here Is a groat chance for the ohurohos to do something right here at home which is of more importance than sending missionaries across the sea." EAU CLAJKX, Wis., Feb. 7.—It transpired Monday that a party from Hayward came to this city and hired the services of certain local 'Immoral and disreputable characters, and that the gang have organixad a systematic scheme to entrap young women here and at Chlppewa FallsH>y bogus promises of employment, and send them to Hay ward, Wis., where they are to be turned over to the Hay- wara end of the organization and distributed to the" so-willed parlor houses- thoro and in towns farther north. Once in Hay ward. In the heart ot a pine wilderness, Iboy would be practically helpless.. It is believed that several young women have already beea sent there, but no case can be inudu out. The gang has boon spotted aud are Doing watched. Arrests are expected. Bhesald nho had "What di.l you do-with the property?" osksd the brute. Mrs. Buscb, frlghteno'l, said she did what win t»'t, but that did not suit Busch, who Inswtod on knowing, and was told that she had left It to her children. He then got up, and going round to his wife, concealing a carving knife In his hand, put bis arm affectionately around her neck. She looked up at him surprised at tuch a caress from him, when he deliberately cut her throat, nearly severing the head, and the blood Rushing all over the baby in her arms. The diistardly act was witnessed by Mrs. Bchauk, an aunt of Mrs. Busch, and the other children, who all rushed from the house and _ give the alarm. The deed was done almost In tho shadow of a police station, and officers bnrricd to the house, where they founj the bloodthirsty coward about to treat his baby as he bad his wife. Upon seeing the police he dropped baby and knife and was taken Into custody. He refu-od to talk, showed no sorrow for his crime, and was locked u^ Just before he killed his wife Mrs. Bohauk " saw the knife and demanded R He told her to come and gat it, and when she reached her hand for it he cut the hand to the bone.

WAsniNOTON CITT, Feb. 7.— Flntl of New Tork kept the music going on the tariff question In the senate Monday by a speech In criticism of the president's message, which be called tbo moat remarkable ruewage ever submitted to congress. He quoted from the reports of Consul Scboenhof, who h« said bad been sent abroad with a roving commission to enlighten tbo pooplo as to the comparative cheapness ot manufactured-goods abroad, to provuthat cotton goods were fully as cheap In the United States as lu England; that shirtings and sheetings were superior in quality at the same prices; that articles of women's wear were superior In workmanship and cheaper In price In the United BtaUn. He understood that there was a standing offer in a protec- tecllonist newspaper office in New Tork of a reward to any free trader who would show that clo:h- Ing is not as cheap in the United States as In England. The truth was that everybody except the dudn and tne millionaire could be Olothud chdaper in this country than In England—and iti woolen clothing, too—and he took it for granted that the senate was not particularly anxluus to legislate for the benefit of the dude and the millionaire. If anybody but the president of the United States had made such statements as were contained In the meaiage he would apply to him a characterization which It would not bs. proper to apply to the president This attack of the president on the manufacturers of the country was too open, too plain, to severe to be allowed to go in silence. Were the manufacturers realizing immense profits! Were they the mllltpuairt*} ot the land I The manufacturers who bad accumulated fortunes equal to $1,000,000 might be counted on the fingers. And in nine cases out of ten those men, or tholr fathers, had struggled up from tha bottom. Who ever heard a manufacturer called a king! Yet they heard of "cattle kings," und "wheat kings," and "Iron klnga," aud "cotton kings," and "railroad kings." So, too, they heard of "trusts," and the president had referred to them. But were, they manu facturlug IruxUf There were tha Standard Oil trust, the great Oogeblc Iron trust, aiid the Coal trust And yet there was not a dollar of protection on anthracite coal, or oil, and uoue on iron ore that would lead to the formation of a trust. If the su^ar trust was a manufacturing trust it was ihe only one In the United Slates. 1 hat was not the way in which manufactures were developed. They were* developed from humble beginnings, by hard, porutotent labor, and enter- priie. Platt yielded for an executive session before concluding Ms speech. Grave Charge Aculuit Congressmen.

Feb. 7.—The relchstag was the scene Monday of a great gathering of German statesmen an.t people, all of whom were drawn thither by the announcement that Bismarck would speak on the military bill But what the man of blood and iron would say directly about the bill was only of secondary Importance. The real cause of the interest this time was the belief that the chancellor would elaborate on the relations of Germany with lUiwIa and Franco apropos of the publication last week of the treaty between Germany and Austria. The existence of the treaty had long been known, but its provisions were a matter of more or leas speculation, and the publication at this time was lookife upon In many quarters as an Intimation Ho Russia that she mast stop massing troops on her western frontier, or fight. Prince Bismarck was greeted with Immense enthusiasm all along the drive to the rdchstng and dosfonln? cheers announced his appearance on the floor ot the German parliament. Ho opened by stating that ha would discuss the general European sitna- tion, which, he said, had changed very little Irr the lost year. He <llcl not believe the Russian newspapers, but he did • absolutely baiieve the czar's word. Concentration of Russian troops appeared^|ifio«,but there wai no pretext for war. War with France would not Involve war with Russia, but war with Russsla would eventually Involve France. He believed that the concentration of Russian troops meant that Russia Intended to make her voice' heard when next the powers conferred.- He then reviewed the relations ot Prussia with Russia since I84a Frequently, be said, they had had a menacing aspect, but at all times the calmness and consclonclouineci displayed by the ministers on the Prussian side toward the threatening position of Russian affairs—a position ot which foreign countries had no Idea—had succeeded In averting mischief. ^'Hitherto, as now," be continued, "we have been constrained to augment and organize our forces, so that in caie of necessity we might stand forth a strong nation, making Its power prevail by our strength, and no defending Its authority, its dignity aud Its possessions." "The warlike tendencies of France and Russia," the chancellor declared, "drive us to an attitude" of defense. Tbo pike lu France and Russia compel us to become carp. Prussia has always been complaisant with Russin,do- Ing her many services. I myself, when minister to Russia, successfully labored to keep amicable relations. However, my friendly feelings for Russia have cooled. I say .this In order to make quite clear the reason why we concluded an alliance with Austria, We were inclined to accede to the demands that Rusala made upon ns before the last war In the east Russia then turned vainly to Austria. We were glad that the storm passed over our heads. Those who expect to find m throat In the publication of the treaty of 1879 are mistaken. The treaty is an expression of the community of Interests of the two contracting parties." "Austria Is our natural ally In the dangers that threaten us from Russia and France, but there Is no need to fear the hatred of Russia. Ho wars 1 are waged from mere hatred, for otherwise France would Have to bo at war with Italy and tbe-whole world. The strength we possess will reassure our public opinion and allay the nervousness of the bourse aud the press. Our task now is to strengthen this strength. It must not be" said that others can place the same defensive frontier force as we are able to do. If we are attacked, then the furor Teutonleus will flame. We hope to remain at peace with Russia, as with all other poworj, but we do not run after anybody. Russia has no grounds for complaint of Germany's attitude on the Bulzarlan question." Prince Bismarck reiterated the confidence that Germany felt in her army, and declared that Germany feared "only the God which makes us wUh to foster peace." Concerning the strength and extent of her military resources, the chancellor asserted thai Germany could plaoa a million men upon each of her frontiers, irrespective of the reserves. Prince Bismarck occupied an hour and forty minutes In the delivery of his speech. Once he became fatigued and sat down, continuing his speech from bis seat After awhile, however, he arose to bis feet and finished bis address with Increased animation, pausing now and then to sip a refreshing drink. When be said that in IttOa it was due to the emperor and his advisers that a Russian war was avoided the applause began, and It was renewed with increasing vigor and enthusiasm when he declared that In case of necessity Germany was equal to any cnjirgency. The words "we don't run after anybody" were received with a tremendous outburst of cheering. .'_...
