Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1890, Olean, New York Olean VOL. XI. OLEAN, CATTARAUGU8 CO." NEW YORK, THURSOAY.APRIL 17, 1890. NO. 21 ENGLISHMEN DlSGUSi'ED AT THE OPERATIONS OF GERMANY IN THE DARK CONTINENT. Remarkable Activity of the Kaiser's Sub- jectR The I'.ritisli Overridden at Zanzi- bar The London Press Utter Pro- tests Mr. Gof-chenN liuclgct Caunlng Much Anxiety. LONDON, April Dispatches from Zanzi- bar state that the operations of the Germans there are of the most vigorous character. Every one connected in any capacity with the project of Maj. Wissmann is displaying a degree of activity singularly at variance with the German national trait of delibera- tion, and everything pertaining to the preparation for the new Emm expedition is being conducted with marked thoroughness. The town has within an incredibly short time become so entirely Germanized that old residents find themselves almost strangers. Several large offices and depots have been established by the Germans, and each of these constantly displays the German flag, while the German uniform is everywhere The British have no office at Zanzi- bar and consequently the English flag is not to be seen, much to the disgust of English- men who view with disgust and indignation the Germans' preparations to extend the in- fluence and power of the empire into terri- tory hitherto tacitly admitted to belong to England if it belonged to anybody. The occasional dispatches conveying assur- ances of the safety and successful operations of Dr. Peters, several times declared by pre- sumably competent authority to be dead, and to extensive preparations for Emin's de- parture, have created a genuine alarm here for the security of British interests in south- east and equatorial Africa whi -h the press are unanimous in calling upon the govern- ment to protect. The Standai d insists that the English and German spheres of influence in Africa are marked with such precision as to preclude the remotest possibility of any misunderstanding; therefore any encroach- ment on British rights must bs made deliber- ately. The Post declares that the German maps purport. ng to fix the boundaries of the two spheres are wholly inaccurate. This being the fact Germany must be at on-e in- formed of the inaccuracies and not be allowed to become unfriendly to England through the aggressions and misrepresentations of the German press in desiring and urging the ne- cessity and importance of Ei.iin's expedition. MR. GOSCHEX'3 BUDGET. The popular murmuring against the inti- mation of Mr. Gosehen of the government's intention to retain the present duty on beer increases daily and has given rise to some uneasiness in the ministerial fold. It is now coming to be generally believed that the budget which will be presented to-morrow will show the extent of the government's alarm by not only removing the recent ad- dition to the duty on beer, but also by taking the duty from foreign platp. It is hinted, too, thai) a further concession to the popular cry for reduced taxation is possible in the lessening of the income tax aad the tax on tea. DEATH OF ALEXANDER MACKET. The death of the famous Uganda mission- ary, Alexander Mackay, has cause 1 the publication of a great deal of interesting and important information concerning him, of the general public was ignorant. Mr. Mackay was a mechanical engineer and went to Africa in 1876, assuming almost im- mediately a leading position among those doing mission work in that country. It was he who first brought Emin prominently to the notice of the pponlo of Europe by a serits of admirable wherein he described tha achievements and dun _-ull ies of the govern- ment of the Egyptian equatorial province, and it was mainly tli rough information fur- nished by him 1hat tha necessity for Eiain's relief became apparent. A serious riot occurred in Rome yesterday as the result of the action of the police in dispersing a Socialist meeting. The meeting was the largest one of its kind ever held in. Rome, and emboldened by the great increase in the number of their auditors, the speakers who addressed the gathering indulged in revolutionary haran.crues of the most violent description, while their listeners evinced their approval by howls, cheers and curses as the sentiment expressed demanded. The police were finally ordered to disperse the crowd and were attacked with stones, clubs, etc., until they were compelled to charge upon the mob with deadly weapons. The were scattered, several of them seriously wounded, and the police made a number of UT nnnouii'-C'i mat report tin COW- mitk'u of inquiry, n-cfntly sent to Panama to the would soon be published.

Dodge called the assembly to order, and Mrs. Richard Irvin, Jr., de- livered the address of welcome.

Last evening the annual meeting of the New York Association of Working Girls' so- cieties was held at Cooper Union. Reports were read and Miss Grace Dodge, Mrs. Ter- hune (Marion and others spoke on "home-mak- ing" and kindred subjects. The delegates do not look like working girls, but like young ladies who have independent means of sup- port, but choose to follow some light occupa- tion to earn pin money. None of the thou- sands girls who work in factories or at cloak miking, cigar making and other un- healthful, laborious and ill-paid tasks, were present. The girls were nearly all well- dressed as the fashionable ladies who are patronizing them. They Joined the Union.
