' TV. B. Itlchmond reports In the North
American IIcvIqw for September conver
sations lie had with Prince Bismarck nt
yrledrlchsruh, 1&SMS90. Speaking of Mr.
Gladstone, Ulsniarctt said: "Your Prlmo
Minister Is poisoned by the venom of his
oratory; If Ms facility of diction and his
command of words were more restrained
he would not bo so great an orator, but
more rcllablo statesman. If God Bparcs
him, Mr. Gladstone will ruin England."
This was said In conjunction with somo
remarks upon Homo Itulo for Ireland.
"No government could afford to grant It
now; It Is too late. It would wreck n
Tory or Radical ministry to do so, es
pecially now when Imperialism has been
to doftly established In the public minds
of Englishmen by Disraeli," speaking of
whom Bismarck said: "I Hko him; ho
a a great statesman and he takes his
part Hko a man. Your politicians do not
drink enough. Think of Pitt and Fox
whom navo you now to compare with
those 'two-bottle men, whoso decisions
were prompt, decisive and vlrllo? Now

"Are you In reality the Iron Chancellor?"
"No," he said, "not naturally; tho Iron
I navo created to uso when necessary."
CALLED FUANCF "ENEMY."
"Germany," said Bismarck, "Is a now
wnplrc, and it must be protected from
posslblo assault by ono or two 'or both
Powers, one to the cast, tho other to tho
west of us. You imiBt remember that tho
next war between Franco and Germany
