Flght About tliR Bennett iolttlcal BROOKLVS X Y June special to The Standard Union from Washington ty says A piece of news that will be nil with intense interest came from the hire House yoHterdny It is no less than positive declaration by President Harri n that he will not be a candidate for nv ornination under any consideration or rcnmstance The president it appears ude up his mind some time ngo not to iok the presidential nomination again c did not think it neoessnrjto rniko any nnouncernen1of the fact although it was warned by thousands of party men that n tho natural course of things ho would e a candidatf for a second term How tho Story Clot Out Indeed the announcement was made Fsterdny in the most ciisuiil way The resident was in conversation with an in mate friend at the White House and the ilk turned on the silver bill Incidentally atiomil politics was mentioned and the resident expressed himself quite freely te said amotig other things that he had made up his mind not to bo a candidate reriomination and that at the end of its present term he intends to settle in ndianapolis again and resume the prac ice of the law The presidents declara ion touching his relation to the next pres Itmtial nomination made as it was with iit reserve was soon in wide circulation mid afforded n topic for conversation that n interest wubordiaatod all other topics or the time HAD A POLITICAL SCRAP A Couple of Wisconsin Close a Dispute with a rlftht MuWAlKKE June first violent controversy over the Bennett law occurred within the aristocratic Milwaukee club Tuesday night when C W Fclker the Oslikosh attorney assaulted KW Nieman editor of Thus Journal for calling him a liar in an altercation Mr Felker an old timo Democrat has fervently favored the Bennett law and has written and spoken in hehalf of it while Mr Nieman who was a Mugwump in has as earnestly op posed it in his paper Clave n Slal for tlie The natural sequence was ridicule of Mr Felker in The Journal and caustic crit icism of The Journal by the Oslikosh at torney Tho two met in the cafe of the club house Tuesday evening and engaged in n spirited argument which ended with Mr Nieman giving the lie and receiving n slap across the face which was evidently returned with interest as Mr Fclkeir brought several distinct marks upon bin own countenance upon the street yester day when he took the train for his subur ban home DIVIDING THE DARK CONTINENT England and Germany Agree to TkelT Respective LONDON June difficulty in Africa between England and Germany as to the division of the territory has been settled by diplomacy but a lew jtoints be ing yet to agree upon One of these IB the subject of a dispatch from Lord Salisbury to Sir Edward Malet British ambassador to Berlin which declares that Germanys claim that where one power occupies a coast another power may riot without the of the first power occupy un claimed regions in the rear cannot be al lowed in cases where the country Is occu pied by Englishmen Where there are no English settlements Lord Salisbury ad mits that there is no English title Outline of tho Agreement The agreement Is that England retains tha Stevenson road which is to be the boundary line between the English and Carman spheres The line stretches from the mouth of the Boukera west from Luke Nyassa to the mouth of the Ki lambo south and from Lake Tanganyika northward Germany retains the region as far as the Congo state along the first degree south latitude the boundary di verging around the western shore of the Nyanza so as to make the frontier meet the territory covered by Stanleys treaties Germany concedes Vitu with the islands ofSomoli Manda and Patta comprising a coast lino exceeding 2CX3 miles England Is allowed the exclusive protectorate over Zanzibar and Pemba Heligoland is con ceded to Germany subject to the consent of parliament Some Inconsistent Politicians TheLondon papers mostly approve the agreement but The Chronicle disapproves and calls it capitulation to Germany The objectors to the premiers concessions however are by no means consistent The Radicals for instance admit that they themselves advised the cession of Heligo land in return for German concessions in Africa but they declare their inability to see that Germany has made any conces sions It is possible however thirt they would have been just as blind for polit ical purposes Germany had surrendered her entire interest j n Africa and with ilrawn her last man from that territory Thei Liberals are a little less inconsistent than the Radicals but will stoutly op pose the agreement when it comes before parliament for purely political reasons THE TARIFF AGAIN Result of the Senate Commit tees Deliberations MAHY CHANGES MADE 15 THE BILL HEflL ESTflTE Kor sale
