London, Oct* 4.—All the afternoon newspapers gravoly discuss the hasty summoning of JI cabinet council, and ;it;is generally accepted as being connected with some serious difficulty with France. The? Liberal organ, the Westminster Gazette, handles the subject vSfy^tenderly and is evidently anxious^ .not to excite public opinion, and thereby embarrass the government. "" On the other hand,'%he' Conservative mouthpieces discuss the matter more fearlessly and warn Franjqeragainst encroaching upon British rights. The Pall Mall Gazette says: "A crisis whi6H • ubecessitates thf> convening of a cabine.trcouncil must be very sudden, as the .ministers were dispersed on their holidays."'T!4t la quite possible, how-evor, that propositions have been made to settle the.,,various differenced, but while we gladly recognize that the incident admits of favorable interpretation it is idle to ignoreJihat it is quite possible that the cabinetjrfls^been summoned to discuss a new anflUmexpccted cause of friction with France.'' The Pall Mall Gazette then refers to the article printed today in The Politique Colon iale of Paris, which reflects the ol- HANAVALONA lil, ^CTEEN t)F MADAGASCAR. views of the minister of the colonies, Deloasse, and which gives, exclusive of the questions of Egypt and Madagascar, a list of 11 outstanding difficulties between France and England connected with frontier and similar disputes in various African colonies The Politique Coloniale, however, says that many of these have practically been settled, and that none of them would justify a rupture unless one country was bent Upon picking a quarrel with the other, which, the paper adds, is not the case. "The Verge of Discourtesy." The Pall Mall Gazette, in ppite of this, eays that the article in The Politique Coloniale is unfriendly to 'the verge of discourtesy." adding: THE NEW STYLE pill is of Dr. Pierce's invention and is full of improvements. They are nsed by everyone—high livers, bad livers, those whose livers are slug-f ish—all find relief in Dr. Pierce's 'leasant Pellets. To BEGIN WITH, these "Pellets" are the smallest, and easiest to take. They're, tiny, sugar-coated, anti-bilious granules that every child takes readily. SECONDLY. — They're perfectly easy in their action—no griping, no disturbance. THIRDLY.—Their effect is lasting. :P: FOURTHLY.—Put up in glass— always fresh. " 'FIFTHLY.—They're the cheapest, for they're guaranteed to give satisfaction, or your money is returned. .You pay only for the good you get. LASTLY.-r They absolutely cure B Constipation, Indigestion, Bilious Attacks, Sick or Bilious Headaches, ||| and all derangements of the livery stomach and bowels. . , "ircO • r *<..

Then, if you can't be cured, the makers will pay you $500 in cash. " And if it reliects tne spine in wmcn the French ministers intend to discuss the differences with England we may prepare for troublesome times. We do not wish to quarrel with France; but, on the other hand, we are Indisposed to permit trespassing upon our unquestioned rights. The bullying spirit which tells Frenchmen that they have only to brag and bluff enough to force England to a surrender may equally lead to trouble." The Pall Mall Gazette then continues: "The Daily Chroniole says that war between France and England must be regarded as 'inconceivable madness.' It may be madness, but it is not inconceivable. France must be told courteously, but firmly, that we have not the slightest desire to attach or to provoke her, but that, If attacked, we shall defend ourselves to the last extremity." The Globe also expresses the belief that the hurried calling of the cabinet council is due to disputes with Franco, adding: "We beli«vo thatt here is no ground for public alarm or suspicion. But we oannot surender any part1 of England's rights or shirk any part of her duties. Our strained relations with France are not a matter of a day'B growth nor connected entirely with Madagascar. We have points of contact with tho French throughout the world, and each is possible of having fostered irritation whioh may easily become strife. It is certain that the tame way in which we have allowed ourselves to be outwitted in the far. east during the last year and the manner in which we have stood by while France partitioned our heritage in Siam have dfone much to persuade the more ignorant or hot headed Frenchmen that England is not so very terrible, after all. . "Today's news of the blookade of the island of Madagascar sets at rest all doubts as to the immediate business of tomorrow's cabinet council. The ministers have decided upon a resolute course of action, and the public will await with anxiety the news of their decision. "We want no panic and no war fever, but we need the assurance that our interests will be properly safeguarded and our allies protected. The French will find that we shall have a word to say about the Madagascar question before it is settled, and Lord Rosebery may rely upon the Unionists to support him loyally and heartily in the interests of the empire." The above quotations from the leading afternoon papers of this city give a fair idea of the state of public opinion here and the gravity of the crisis which has caused the calling of a cabinet council for tomorrow. Dispute of Long Standing. The dispute between England and France In regard to Madagascar is one of long standing. Madagascar is a large island separated from the southeastern portion of Africa by the Mozambique channel. It is now virtually under a French protectorate, although it is claimed in England that at least one-seventh of the Island 19 held Dy t5ritisn capital. But toe French embassy in London recently answered a communication from the Madagascar consul in London by a formal statement that-officially there is no longer such person as a London Madagascar consul, as, it was added, the agents of France in various countries represent the Hova government. Early last montli the French government evidently dotermlnod upon taking decided action in regard to Madagascar, probably believing that the hands of England were tied by the complications brought through the war between China and Japan. Consequently M. le Myre de Vilers was sent on a special mission to Madagascar, and it was understood that he was to all intents and purposes instructed to demand the abdication of the government and to annex the island to France. The following statement was made regarding the mission of M. le Myre de Vilers recently: He will first demand a revision of the treaty of 1885 and will then ask that the territory of France at Diego Suarez be extended to Passandame bay, on the western side of Madagascar, and to Vohemar bay, on the east side of the island, and that Majunga and Nostfih Beh, on the west coast, and Fort Dauphin, Tamatave, Ma-naboudro and Andovoran, on the eastern shores, with their adjacent territories, be ceded to France. Finally he was instructed to demand that the French resident shall have the right to control all the ao-tions of the government of Madagascar, Including its foreign policy. Tho Bights Franco Claims. The Cocarde of Paris at the time of the departure of M. le Myre de Vilers, who is just about due at Madagascar, said: "He will call upon the Hova government to satisfy all our demands and to respect all the clauses of our treaties. In the case of the Hova government accepting this demand a protocol, summarizing our rights and rendering some obscure points clear, will be drawn up. These rights may be summarized as follows: The installation of a French representative, who will treat exclusively all questions of foreign policy with the powers; the recognition of the right of Europeans to possess property without any retrocession clause; the right of treating with the natives for, the hire and farming of property; the registration of all deeds concerning the purchase and hire of property at the French residency; the construction of a railway whioh the Malagasy government has till now refused; the freedom of navigation of the rivers; the establishment of military stations where the French may think fit; the appointment of a Frenoh agent to control and secure the financial resources wasted at the present moment to the detriment of the natives; the Installation of a Frenoh resident with eaoh of the Malagasy governors, with theobjeot of securing the respeot of treaties and the proper collection of the taxes—in a word, the effectual application of the protectorate regime, which has until now been nothing but nominal If the Hova ministers do not give entire satisfaction, M. de Vilers will withdraw to one of the vessels of our squadron, and the commander of that squadron will then open the sealed instructions sent to him. Hovas Must Accept or Fight. "J,:; The Cocarde added that all this means that the voice of the cannon will make itself heard without any delay if the Hovas do not at once accept what may he termed the Frenoh ultimatum. Tne Courier du Soir of Paris, a newspaper generally .'well, informed in regard to tne roreign policy ot France, h'&cf this to say of the mission Of M. le Myre de Vilers at the time of his departure for Madagascar: "We are assured that M. le Myre do Vilers leaves for Madagascar with but little confidence in the pacific result of his mission. The Hovas, who have accumulated great stores of arms and ammunition, show warlike proclivities and are encouraged to resist by the English Methodists, who promise them the same support as they gave them in 1883 and do not hesitate to engage the government of the queen of England. Thus M. de Vilers, who was formerly French resident general at Antanarivo and conversant with the affairs of the African- island, knows the people with whom he is to negotiate, and he made no secret of his apprehensions to the government, which, during the three months whioh will elapse before a final decision is taken, will complete the preparations for the expedition. According to our information, the expeditionary corps will consist of 5,000 men and will march on Antanarivo by a route already carefully studied by several of our officers of the military engineering corps." ; De Vilers* Previous Work. M. de Myre de Vilers will be remembered as the astute diplomatic agent who rendered such valuable service to France during the latter's dispute with Siam, and who oompolled the Siamese to accept the terms offered by France, in spite of the half hearted support given to Siam by Great Britain. The consul of Madagascar in London recently made the following statement after declaring that M. de Vilers lost prestige in Madagascar when he hauled down the Frenoh fiag at the capital of that island some years ago: "With regard to the Frenoh claims, it is very difficult to know what France really wants. It is quite clear that it is not out of philanthropic motives toward the natives that France is pursuing her claims, but from her oonvlotlon of the naval and military importance of Madagascar in view of a future war. All who know Madagascar are of the opinion that, except from strategic considerations, it will prove a white elephant to France on account of the unhealthiness of the coast and its unfitness for European settlement. She cannot, therefore, want the country for the sake of its trade. Unfortunately Great Britain's hands are tied, as she has promised to allow France a free hand. How far this will be carried I cannot say, but I do not for a moment suppose that Great Britain will allow France to actually annex Madagascar. If she only takes the northern part, she will get all she wants from a strategic point of view without interfering with any commercial interests except to a very limited extent. The present situation is causing great uneasiness, and much doybt prevails among merchants with regard to the dispatch of goods in view of a French blockade and the generally unsatisfactory state* of affairs. No doubt a French expedition will meet with strong armed opposition, but it is difficult to say to what extent this will go. If M. do Vilers' proposals "are moderate and are not based upon the extraordinary views put forward by the French press, thero is no reason to regard war as inevitable." The secretary of state for foreign affairs, the Earl of Kimborly, has been in communication with the Indian government, and preparations are being made to concentrate, English and Indian troops in readiness to proceed farther east. It is added that the sanotion of the..cabinet is* accessary Dorore any invtlior steps are "possible. - • A dispatoh received here from Ports-month says that rumors aro circulated there in regard to extensive naval preparations. Tho various heads of departments at the dookyord held a conforonce this morning at which the opinion of the officers was taken in regard to the time the first division of the reserve ships could be in readiness to put to sea. The officials of tho foreign office deny tbat the cabinot council summoned for tomorrow Is due to a hitch in the negotiations with France in regard to Madagascar. They add that the hasty summoning of the ministers was due to the necessity of discussing several important international questions, one of the chief subjects to be brought up being tho safety of British subjects resident in China. A dispatch was received at the foreign office today from tho British consul at Peking stating that he was making arrangements to insure the safety of the British residents at the Chinese capital. France Denies tho Blockade. PARIS, Oct. 4.—Tho minister of foreign affairs, M. Hanotaux, denies that a block-ado of the island of Madagascar has been proclaimed by France. The minister of marine, M. Felix-Faure, deolares that beforo a blockade of the island of Madagascar would be declared the European powers would previously be Informed of the intention of France to take such a step.

Details of a Storm Which Damaged Property to the Extent' of SI,500,OOO. Many Houses, Besldenoes and .State Institutions Wrecked. LITTLE BOCK, Oct. 4.—News from the Arkansas state insane asylum today con* firmed the first reports concerning the damage done that institution by the tornado which caused devastation and.death hi this city last; evening. All the male department and^ annex was razed to the ground, four floors falling in a mhss. Dr. Ingate, formerly-of Mobile, and two patients were instantly killed, and four other patients were seriously and perhaps fatally injured. State Senator; Vest's daughter, who lived in that neighborhood, was injured by a falling roof* The house was blown down and everything destroyed. The other ocoupants escaped serious injury. State Engineer Eggleskm's house in the same neighborhood was unroofed. Thomas Warner's house was demolished, and a two story tenement on West Third street, near the penitentiary, and Peter English's two story house were wrecked. The Dib-rell house, qne of the oldest buildings in the city, was demolished. Young's grocery was unroofed, and a boarding house at Second street and Broadway was blown down, but no one there was injured. The Presbyterian church at Fourth and State streets was unroofed. Casualties at the Penitentiary. The namo of tho convict killed at the penitentiary is Griffin. Two guards, Smith and Witt, were badly injured, and seven trusty prisoners were seriously hurt. The property loss to the state there is $20,000. The main losers by the cyclone in the business center of the city, where the greatest destruction was caused, are: Pensel Grocery company, Dickinson Hardware company, Carl & Tobey, Waor-fritz Foundry company; Curtain building, Merchants' cafe, E. Elenbogen, Kansas Carpet and Furniture company; Brad-field & Dowd; Falk, Ottenheimer & Co.; J. W. Dedleman & Co.; Wolfe & Co.'s building, front caved in; Max Elkan, three story building, totally demolished; St Charles hotel; Volmer Dry Goods company, building demolished; Daily Democrat building, unroofed; Doming hotel, upper story demolished; stores of J. B. Bond and Brizzal, first floors wrcoked; Torrent engine houses. Killed and Injured. ' The list of killed, as far as oan be learned, is as follows: Dr. J. T. Ingate, Mobile; two insane asylum patients; tho conviot, Griffin; Jack Boyd and baby, colored, killed in the Waerfritz building; Joseph Holloway, colored, killed in the Little Rock bakery. The injured are: State Representative Elect C. T. Monroo, probably fatally; John Eaton, an employee at the Martin block, fatally hurt; Captain S. O. Smith, hurt on the head; Mrs. Janko, fatally injured; Fritz Reis, seriously injured; John Fouterouwez,' fatally injured; James Swift, injured in tho head; Guards Smith and Witt, badly injured. Many others were injured whose names were not learned. Several children were covered with debris in the ruins of the St. Charles hotel, but they have all been accounted for. The bell over the Torrent engine house, weighing 700 pounds, fell into the street and demolished the engine house. Devastation at the Asylum. The worst effects of the storm are to be seen at the insane asylum, which is three miles west of tho business center of the city. The entire south half of the main building was demolished. The tower fell through Superintendent Robertson's rooms, burrying Dr. Ingate in the ruins. Mrs. Robertson escaped with slight injuries. All but 20 of the inmates have been discovered. Many were found down town and placed In jail, and some, it is feared, are buried in the ruins. Dr. In-gato'sbody will probably be recovered. The loss to the asylum will reach $160,000. The storm came from the southwest and swept nearly everything in its path. Pe-. destrians and teamsters hastily sought places of safety, but the velocity of the wind was terrible, and the list of injured will be very large. Roofs, signs and trees were tossed about like paper. The path of the tornado was not more than 200 yards wide, and its course was zigzag. Its duration was not over three minutes, though the rain continued to pour afterward for an hour. The police department performed the work, of a relief corps, and the patrol wagons were utilized for conveying injured persons to the city hall as fast as they could bo recovered from the debris. A temporary hospital was established there. The rain was acoompanied by brilliant lightning and loud peals of thunder. After the Storm. At 9 o'clock the rain ceased to fall and in the-down town district was a scene of excitment never before witnessed in this olty. Men were hurrying to and fro, assisting merchants whose buildings were demolished in removing their goods to plaoes of safety. There were no lights anywhere in the streets, and the pedestrians, knowing that the telephone, telegraph and electric wiros wore' prostrated, were very cautious in moving- about. The first thought of the men who make their living by working at night, when the storm swept down upon tho city, was of their families. Many left their posts and started for their homes, but were forced to return, as the storm raged too fiercely to admit of walking on tho streots. The damage caused by the tornado will undoubtedly reach the first estimate of $1,000,000n , - Donor Temple la Displeased. PITTSBURO, Oot. 4.—W. ,C.
