Colonel New is in "Washington. He is
on hia way farther East, though, and will
accept no office at the gift of the adminis
tration. The reason is said to be because'
President Harrison has seen fit to bridge a
chasm that long lay between the Harrisons
and ex-Governor Porter. The President, it
is said, doesn't recognize 3olonel Dudley,
at present, nor desire to hare him be seen
about'the "White House, for fear of embar
rassing reports that would without doubt be
rsrscuz. telegram to thx dispatch.!
Washington, March 15.r-John C."New
is at the Biggs House, on his way to New
York, but will only remain oyer Sunday.
He says he will not be appointed Minister
to Austria, and that he will not accept if he
is; that he will not accept any appointment,
not even the English mission, even, though
the President should tender him the com
mission on a golden tray. Nor will he reo-'
ommend any person for the office, and it is
useless to ask him to do so. Mr. New has
paid his respects to the President, but has
called only in a social way.
"While Mr. New declines to talk at all
upon the subject, and insists that his head
is not sore, Indiana people are almost unan
imous in the opinion that he has been very
badly treated by the President, and that the
nomination of Governor Porter to be Min
ister to Home makes it impossible for Mr.
New to accept any favors from the adminis
tration. A Review of tbe Fend.
' The public at large may not be aware that
for years there have been two factions of
the Eepublican party in Indiana, One of
themled by Governor Porter and the other
by General Harrison and Mr. Newi Al
though Porter and Harrison were formerly
partners in the practice of law, they were
not on speaking terms for several years.
The feud grew out of political rivalry, and
some three or four years ago Governor
Porter made a speech at Tomlinson Hall, in
Indianapolis, in which he denounced Har
rison in the severest possible terms, and
called Mr. New all sorts of bad names.
The same evening Porter and Harrison
met on the street in Indianapolis, and it is
said that the feeling was then so bitter there
would have been a personal encounter had
not friends interfered. The two men didn't
speak or recognize each other in any way
from that time until after Harrison's nomi
nation to the Presidency.
Quite a Striking- Contrast.
Porter was a delegate to the Chicago con
vention, but he wasn't admitted to the con
fidence of Harrison's friends, and while Mr.
New was spending his money and exhaust
ing every physical and mental effort to se
cure Harrison's election, Governor Porter
was sitting idly by, in a corridor of the ho
tel, chatting with old friends and taking
very little interest in the canvass.
After Harrison's nomination, when the
State Convention met, it was thought
necessary to put Porter at the head of the
State ticket, in order to insure a Bepublican
victory, but he declined to be a candidate.
Then General Harrison, at the advice of Mr.
New and others of his supporters, called
upon Governor Porter and asked him, as a
personal favor to accept the Gubernatorial
nomination. This was the first time the two
men had met since the encounter on the
street after the Tomlinson Hall meeting.
The Contrast Continues.
Porter went into the campaign, made
speeches, and did good work, but he wasn't
in Harrison's confidence, nor did the latter
have any communication with him. On
the contrary, Mr. New acted as the eyes,
ears, arms and legs for the President-elect,
running back and forth to New York for
him, devoting his entire time to his service,
and giving him the use of his paper, the
Journal, and making a large cash contribu
tion to pay the expenses of the campaign.
Immediately after the inauguration Presi
dent Harrison takes to distinguish his old
'enemy above all other Indiana men, tender
ing him the mission to Borne, and leaves
Mr. New entirely in the darkness.
These facts probably explain why Mr.
New will not accept a foreign mission.
Dudley Snubbed by tbe Harrisons.
A story printed to-day is to the effect that
soon after the arrival of the Harrison fam
ily in "Washington, Mr. Halford wrote a
ncte to Colonel Dudley requesting him not
to call upon the President or attempt to
have any communication with him, as it
might embarrass the incoming administra
tion, and that when' ths President met Col
onel Dudley at the inaugural ballhe greeted
him as though he was ta entire stranger.
There is no foundation for this story.
Neither the President nor Mr. Halford
have communicated with Colonel Dudley
in any' manner since the election. TJp to
noonday on the 6th of November last, Col
onel Dudley was in not only daily but al
most hourly communication with General
Harrison, by mail and by wire, and hardly
a day passed during the previous three
months that he did not receive at least one
telegram or letter from the Bepublican can
didate at Indianapolis. His last communi
cation from General Harrison reached him
on the day of election, but he hasn't heard
'from him since.
Sot a-.FMBd of Recognition.
All the time Dudley was lying ill at the
Everett House after the election General
Harrison did not, to Dudley's knowledge,
make any inquiry to his condition or ex
press any sympathy for him.' Upon the ar
rival of the President in "Washington,
Colonel Dudley and the la'dies of his family
called, with the rest of the Indianapolis
delegation, and left their cards at the Ar
lington Hotel, but although other residents
of Indiana were invited by word and note
to visit the President, both at the Arlington
and the "White House, the Dudleys received
,110 sign of an invitation or any assurance of
a welcome. They were not invited to their
reception given to the Indian a people at the
"White House, and so far as the'President'is'
concerned, he has appeared as though he
wasn't aware of Colonel Dudley's existence1.
A GHOST THAT WONT DOWN.
Whv Jena Baker's Road to Venezuela Is a
rSrrCIAL TXLXGHAXTO TUB DISPATCn.l
"WASHINGTON', March 15. The Hon'.i
, John Jehu Baker, the distinguished writer,
author land diplomat, who is a candidate
for Minister to Venezuela, is meeting with
considerable opposition from the Navy De
partment on account of a little affair that
occurred down in that country some years
ago. The Government of Venezuela, having
erected a monument to George "Washington,
invited the United States Government to'
participate in the "celebration, and Admiral
Cooper, then in command of the Atlantic'
squadron, was directed to go there with all
his ships and sailors and represent this Gov
ernment The officers and seamen were the
gnests of the city of Caracas, and Guzman
Blanco, the President, ordered that the citi-.
zens shonld give them whatever they wanted,
without accepting any pay.
After the ceremonies were over and the
squadron -had left the place, Mr. Baker sent
a dispatch to the Department of State at
"Washington, complaining that the United
States Navy had disgraced itself there, and,
had gone on without paying its bills. Mr.
Prelinghnysen referred the letter to Secre
tary Chandler, who in turn forwarded it to
Admiral Cooper, with an order to the fleet
paymaster to settle all the hills and deduct
the amount from the pay of the officers who
were guilty of such disgraceful conduct.
Admiral Cooper returned a most emphatic
denial of the story, and a sum of money
sufficient to cover ail bills was forwarded to
Mr. Baker. "When Guzman Blanco heard
of the trouble he took charge of the, money
and returned it to the Secretary of the Navy
through the Venezuelan Minister at "Wash
ington. At the same time he gave Mr.
Baker his most vigorous blessing.

The Commissioner of Labor Likely to Be
Retained In Offlco.
tErECIAL TEI.EOKAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
"Washington, March 15. John Jarrett
is yet here in the interests 'of "William Mar
tin for Commissioner of Labor, but neither
he nor the friends of other candidates for
the position now held by Colonel Carroll D.
"Wright have received any encouragemept.
Colonel Wright has, shown such masterly
ability for the work and such firmness and
lack of prejudice that there is almost no
question of his remaining. He has won the
admiration and fealty of tbe most intelli
gent and enthusiastic of the thinkers of the
industrial movement all over the country,
and thousands of petitions for his retention
and protests against his removal have fol
lowed every suggestion of a change.
Moreover, it is understood that General
Harrison was communicated with after
Wright's recent nomination in regard to
this confirmation, and it was understood by
the Senate that it was the desire of Presi
dent Harrison that Colonel Wright should
be confirmed. It is pretty certain that all
attempts to oust Colonel Wright will end in

Washington, March 15. The New
York Republicans will object to having
Assistant Secretary Bussey, of the Interior
Department, charged to that State. The
circumstances of his appointment are very
similar to those of Colonel Tichenor. He
formerly lived in Hlinois, as Bussey lived
in New York, but neither had political
backing'or indorsements from the States to
"which they are assigned.
Senator Hiscock asks that Bussey be as
signed to Louisiana, where he formerly
lived, but the Louisiana men object on tbe
ground that he has been a resident of New
York for the last five or six years. As has
been already said in these dispatches. Gen
eral Bussey was appointed because Secre
tary Noble wanted him, and it is not prob
able that any alteration will be made.

San PbanCisco, 'March 15. A man
from Los Angeles who has investigated (he
mining boom, writes to friends in thai city
in a very, discouraging strain about the gold
fields. He says: MI have just returned
from the mines, and'eah assure you that the
mining boom in- Lower- California is the
worst sell ever perpetrated upon a suffering
public. The quartz specimens are good, but
placers yet discovered are all in one gulch,
and all the ground on which anything has
been found was taken long ago, so that there
is no chance for anybody now. That one
gulch.pays well,.bu$ it will al bewprked
out!" in two weeks. All old miners, there
say.it is a good' place in which -to prospect,
but if anything more is found, it will be
where 500 people have gone over the ground
and failed to find anything.
A EEVIVAIi OP THE EXCITEMENT.
The latest advices from San Diego indi
cate a revival of the excitement, which had
cooled a.little.ou account' oC'ihe. discourag
ing reports brought back by disappointed
gold hunters. The cause of this is that a
heavy rain fell in camp on Tuesday, and
uncovered more nuggets, whioh indicates
that sluicing alone will reach the deposits.
Several hundred dollars' worth was picked
up after the rain. A dozen old-time miners
left San Diego yesterday for the mines, in
tending to remain six or eight months.
Nearly all the discouraging reports from
the mines come through Los Angeles, while
San Diego sends out a lew that are not
promising. The jealousy and rivalry be
tween the two towns, second only to that
between St Paul and Minneapolis, account
for most of this discrepancy, as San Diego
gets the main part of the; business benefit
resulting from the boom.
BOUND TO STBIKE SOMETHING.
Dr. M. C. Hatton, of San Diego, returned
from the mines the first of the week, and
thinks that the prospectors who are now
going in will undoubtedly develop some
very rich quartz Jedges. The plater mines
are monopolized by Mexicans and Indians,
while many Americans are prospecting. way'
from thel-caaipj-some Laving even gotra'iO
miles away. He is sure .they will find some
thing worth developing. ,
Another San Diego man Who spent half a
week in camp, says that although the re
ports which go out now are not good, those
of two or three months hence will prove
that the fields are rich. He is confident
that if capital goes into it, it will double
up rapidly. Two men, who were the first
to clear the custom house after the fever
broke out, fend among the first to retnrn,
brought back some very rich quartz speci
mens. They say that a fewqnartz claims
have been taken .up, mostly by the Interna
tional Company. On the wav from Santa
Clare to Tiacuana they passed 200 wagons
and twice as many people on foot and 100
bnrros, loaded with mining outfits, all
headed for the mines.
TOUGH TOE A. TENDERFOOT.
Very dismal reports were brought back to
Los Angeles by a man who said he stayed
three hours in the camp and left disgusted.
He says things are beginning to look mighty
tough down there. Those who went with
little money, are flat broke. 'Gold pans are
in poor demand, as everybody is giving up
hope of getting rich through placers, and
all who have money are prospecting for
Another returned miner says there are
almost as many teams coming away from, the
mines now as are going in. All whom he
talked with were agreed that the placers are
not of much account, but that the quartz
veins are good. Many of the returning army
were on foot, among these being two Colo
rado miners, who had been in every mining
excitement on the' coast, and had walked to
XX. !... ..m U.n Tlian. a a., f.- !1
with the intention of staying a year. They
worked a few days, but not even got color,
and walked back.
CHINESE MAT CAUSE TBOUBLE.
A number of Chinamen appeared at the
mines. Americans and Mexicans have held
meetings protesting against- their, presence.
The Chinamen have paid no attention to
this, and trouble may result.
Governor Torres has relnsed the request
of the miners to lower the prices of claims
to &5. His action will thin out the popula
tion of the mines very rapidly. The Mex
ican who discovered the mines is working a
rocker in American Gulch; Out of 20 pans
of dirt he cleaned up $24 in pure gold. He
has averaged ISO a day.
The latest news from Ensonada says that
the most trustworthy persons coming from
the mines bring good" reports, nearly all
coming out for supplies' and going back at
once. "Valuable quartz lodes are.beihg dis
covered daily, and those working placers
industriously making good pay, and some
few striking it rich, but the tenderfeet are
leaving in disgust
" MAY BECOME .PERMANENT.
Old miners -think it will make-a perma
nent camp. The ledges show free gold for
a distance estimated at 200 miles. Pros
pecting is going on through a distance of 35
miles froin Santa Clara mines. Some rich
quartz ledges have been found 15 miles
south of the camp, and there is talk of in
troducing a camp mill, to be worked by
steam power. Good order prevails.
Overland parties now leaving. San Diego
for the mines are made up largely of old
timers, .who, haye mined in California for 40
years. 'One such of eight persons, and an
other of 25 crossed the border-In the middle
of the week. At tbe same time a dozen
other outfits, mainly composed of men with
money, going down.' to "develop the mines,
were headed southward.. More of this class

tntOM A STAIT COBEE8POJTDEST.
' Habeisbubo, February 15. The Indus
trial Training Commission appointed, by
the Government on the authority of a con
current resolution adopted at the last ses
sion of the Legislature to-day submitted a
voluminous preliminary report to .the Leg-,
islature. President Atherton, of the Penn
sylvania State College, is at the.head of the
commission, and the other members are
President Fetterolf, of Girard College; Su
perintendent Luckey, of .Pittsburg; Super-,
intendent Shaeffer, of.the Kntztown schools,,
and Representative Bean, of .Norristown.
To more thoroughly investigate the subject
Prof. Atherton was sento Europe to exam
ine into industrial training there. In its re-,
port the commission says:
The Commission has deemed tbat for its pur
poses the term 'Industrial education" as used
In the resolution authorizing its appointment
was ample and expressive. It Involves both
the idea of manual training, with' reference to
its industrial applications, and the idea of edu
cational fir. Intellectual training, which, with
reference to industries, must be largely on the
scientific side. Industrial education, therefore,
we understand and use as meaning primarily
education; 'education with reference to prac
tical life, but still education; the training of
the hand, the eye and the brain to work in uni
son; the training of the whole child in such a
way that his Inward powers may act effectively
through fit Instruments upon external sur
roundings and receive from them in turn ac
curate and informing impressions. '
A OBEAT MOBEBN MOVEMENT.
The report touches on tbe widespread in
troduction ot scientifio knowledge and
scientific methods, and says that this makes
it necessary that children who leave school
at from 14 to 16 years of age or younger be
not launched into an unknown world. Ele
mentary knowledge of the facts and forces
with which they will be brought face to
face it therefore declares necessary. The
report then 'continues concerning the
answer to this demand.
The general result has been a great and far
reaching educational movementwlthln the last
SO years, surpassed if equaled by no similar
movement in the history of mankind. Every
civilized country, and the best minds In every
country, have thought it worth while to en
courage, foster and promote this movement.
Technical education, in some one or other of
its many forms, has come to be' established in
every country of the civilized World; but by an
inversion of what would seem the natural and
logfiarderrtho beginning .basin alLcaseaJ
oeen maae attne top rawer wan at inecottom
of the System'. '.
The report traces the movement in Eng
land and dates the definite ' progress of the
industrial training idea in the United
States from 1862; -the time when Congress
passed "the well known land grant act,"
providing for the establishment in States
and Territories that should accept its pro
visions, of at least one college, whose "lead
ing object" shonld be "to teach such
branches of learning as are related to
agriculture and tbe mechanic arts." The
first distinct manual training effect, how
ever, began ten years ago with the establish
ment of the St. Iiouis Manual Training
School, since when it has. spread to various
parts of the country with excellent result
stabiino it bight.
After .reviewing the experience of these,
the report says:
Nearly all eminent thinkers are agreed, in
theory at least, that education should proceed
from the simple to the complex; from the con
crete to the abstract: from things to the repre
sentatives, or ideas of things. As Rousseau says,
"The child should first learn the things nearest
to him, then those that are farther and
farther off." There would seem to be no room
to doubt that a systematic coarse of education,
conducted upon this principle, would result in
a symmetrical and well-compacted develop
ment of the child's mental and physical being,
which would fit him for the dnties of practical
life far .more effectively than any one-sided
training, however excellent, could possibly. do.
The success of the manual training sys
tem in the general school system of New
York, New Haven and elsewhere, its sue
cess in special schools, as in Philadelphia,
and its success in foreign countries leads the
Commission to make the following recom
mendations, which have been prepared in
the form of a bill and submitted to the Leg
islature:' First That provision be made for the intro
duction of manual training Into each State
Normal School, with a prescribed course of
woodwork for all students, iron work for
young,men and sewing and cooking for young
women, such courses to be subject to modifica
tion from time to time under proper authority,
and to include an amount of , wood work not
exceeding what on an average could be accom
plished in a single coarse of 12 weeks (or in two
courses of six weeks each), if the work Were
so arranged as to give the principal portion of
the time to this course of exercises; the amonnt
of ironwork to be left optional with each in
stitution. The work should be acoompanied,
at every step, with a progressive course in
drawing. Second That an appropriation of 5,000 be
made to each State Normal School for the
establishment of' tbe proper plant, Including
building, tools, equipment, etc., and a further
sum of $2,000 annually for maintenance.
Third That after April, 1KJP, no certificate
or diploma be granted by a normal school to
any pupil or graduate who shall not have com
pleted at least the equivalent of a six weeks'
course in, wood work, as already mentioned.
Fourth That for the purpose of providing
facilities for pursuing this course of training to
teachers already employed, and who may wish J
to acquire it, provision oemaaeior me main
tenance at present of a short summer coarse in
wood work and Iron work at the State College
where such Instruction has been maintained for
NO TEACHING OF TBADES.
Fifth That the State make a moderate
annual'appropriation'to be given on a uniform
basis to such districts as shall undertake the
establishment of manual training in or. in con
nection with their public schools, with specific
provision, however, that such funds, whether
provided by the State or the district, shall not
be used for tbe teaching of specific trades.
Sixth That provision oe made for the Intro
duction of drawing as a required study in every
school in the State, at the earliest possible day.
8eventh Tbat the law require every district
in its subsequent erection or arrangement of
buildings for school purposes, to make suitable
provision for a room or rooms to be used for
tbe purposes of manual training.
Eighth Tbat provision be made or author
ized for the grouping of rural schools, for the
purposes of 'manual training. In such a way
tbat either tbe scholars from schools Included
In each group may go in sections from each
school to some one conveniently located, there
n Nopira instruction in manual framing, or
That a special instructor in manual training
may do appoimea, waaw tuna muxix ua as
signed to each school in turn. "
Ninth That for the purpose of securing di
rect encouragement, oversight, guidance and
inspection ot all such work in the State, a.
special Deputy Superintendent of Public In
struction be appointed In the manner now pro
vided by law, with a sufficient salary to secure
service of- the highest order, who shall be as
signed by theSaperlntendeat--6f Public In

Tenth That provision be made for tne iame-
diate'introdnctlon ot mannal training, arranged

youth'of both sexet; hut that In ocb cases no
attempt be made to teach specific trades, ex
cept so.far as such trades may be necessarily
carried onf or the purpose of snpplrlne articles
needed for consumption In tbe Institutions
Eleventh If the commission may venture to
suggest a recommendation upon a subject not
intrusted to if br the resolution' under which It
was appointed, we would respectfully but most,
earnestly recommend that any change which
may be made in the provision for the mainte
nance of tbe soldiers' oronan schools, shall re
quire the Introduction of mannal training, at
icasi in wooawors iot .Boys ana sewing ana
cooking for girls, as an essential ' part of tbe
course of. Instruction.
Tbe commission finds thai manual train
ing invariably makes children brighter in
their other studies.

Woostke; March 15, Barkey, the vic
tim oi hydrophobia, an account of whose
sufferings were given in The Dispatph", is
believed to be on the high road to recovery.
Tests were made with water and by other
means, and the ailment was then pronounced
hydrophobia. When this conclusion was
reached the attendant physician, who looked
upon rabic poison as a self-limiting infec
tion, anda with that in view ne set
about to bridge the case over the active pe
riod of the. poison. On account of a hyper
sensation of the skin and mucous mem
brane of the mouth, throat and cesothagus,
which, by reflex action, seemed to increase
I a tendency to the recurrence of the par
oxysms, large doses, of fluid extract of acon
ite were given for the purpose of blunting
and partially destroying the sensuary nerves,
especially the peripheral portion. "
It is claimed that no other medicine will
answer this purpose better than aconite.
Hydrate of chloral was given to obviate
restlessness and a general nervous condition
and to produce sleep. The paroxysms grew
less frequent, and.it is now two weeks since
the patient experienced the last one. He
sits up in bed and does not even evince a
desire to bite, and his voice, which was
husky and scarcely audible, is returning.
His appetite is good, and the attending
"physician has pronounced him' out of dag

limbs are partially paralyzed, however, but
it is thought this" will pass off. He is all
right mentally and looks well.

A Terrible Beast Tbat Bans .Away With
rSFZCULt: tSLZORAMTOTirB DISPATCH. 1
Atlanta, Ga., March 15. The inhab
itants around Good Hope, seven miles from
here, are in a state of panic from the ap
pearance Of 'a 'wildcat. This strange beast
was seen several times, and the people were
growing more and more alarmed, when last
"Wednesday it spread terror by seizing the
little child of Isaac Thompson, and carried
it into the woods. Last Wednesday, about
10 o'clock, the second appearance of the
vicious beast was made. This time it
walked up to the door of Thompson's house.
The door was propped on the inside with a
chair, but it was so heavy and stout that it
made no halt, but went in and took the
babe, not yet 2 years old, from the bed where
it had been left asleep.
There were three other children in the
family. They raised a yell, but the blood
thirsty beast would not give up its prey.
It went toward the lot, jumped the fence,
crossed to another fence, and when on top,
dropped the child on a log, in attempting to
climb the ten-rail fence. The. child was not
much hurt. The cat escaped and has not
been heard from since.
THE BEEWEET DEAL 8ETTLED.
Two Big Rochester.EstabIlshments Gobbled
by tbe English Syndicate.
tSFZCIAL TXUCGBJJI TO TBI DI3PATCIT.1
Eochesteb, K". Y., March 15. The
brewery deal is .at last settled. It is learned
on authority that this afternoon, in the Ger
man American Bank, the contracts were
signed whereby a syndicate ot London capi
talists purchased the property of thB Bar-'
tholomay and Eochester Brewing Com
panies. The sum given is nearly 53,000,000.
Both properties are given-free of all incum
ance. With the purchase of the Bartholo
m ay' goes the Cottage Hotel at Charlotte,
Rochester's summer resort, and all the
branches of the company in various cities of
the country. The purchase of the Eochester
brewery includes an interest in the Hotel
Ontarjo, at Charlotte, and the malt house.
The Genesee brewery wasn't purchased,
for the reason, as stated by Mr. Monroe, of
the English-syndicate, that the stockholders
couldn't agree among themselves, and the
negotiations had been prolonged too long
already. The present officers of both com
panies will probably be continued.

The Irenes. Crisis Still Continues, With Mara TronWa
Another blow has been struck at the -foundation
of the Tory power and for the
success of Gladstone, Parnell and home
rule. Kennington, a one-time Conserva
tive district in London, has elected the
Liberal candidate for Parliament by an un
expectedly large majority. Sir Charles
Ensseli has summoned Lord. Salisbury,.'
with others, to appear as witnesses before
the Parnell Commission. The troubles ia
London, March 15. An election was,
held in the Kenningten division of Lambeth:
to-day to fill the Parliamentary seat made,
vacant by. the resignation of Mr. E. C
Davis, a Conservative. The election re-,
suited. in a victory for Mr. Beaufoy, the
Gla'dstonian candidate, who polled 4,009
votes, against 3,439 for Mr. Hope, the Con
servative nominee. At the last election
Mr. Davis, the retiring member, received,
3,222 votes and Mr. Beaufoy 2,792. To-day"f
election was hotly contested,' both parties
straining every nerve to achieve success.
The Standard, referring to the' result of
the Kennington election, says: "No sehsi-- .
ble Unionist will pretend to minimize-the'
seriousness of this misfortune. All the ex
planations in the world will not deprive tho
figures of their unpleasant significance."
LE CABON'S METHODS.
In the House of Commons this, afternoon,
Home Secretary Matthews was questioned
with .reference to the actions of Mr. Ander
son, an official of the Home office, who per
mitted Le Caron, the informer, to look over
the whole of the latter's past correspondence
with the 'Home Office authorities prior to'
his appearing as a witness before the Par-,
nell Commission, and to select such letters
as he thought would be of service to the
Mr. Matthews said at the time he knew,,
nothing of the course taken by Mr. Ander
son, and consequently had not given- it his'
sanction, but he now considered 'that Mr.
Anderson had acted properly. Sir William
Vernon Harcourt gave notice that he would
submit a motion regarding Mr. Anderson's
conduct when the police vote is discussed on
The result of to-day's election at Ken
nington is another nail in the Tory coffin.
It is again reported that, to save themselves
from defeat the Tories will accept the resig
nation that Sir Eichard Webster, the At
torney General, placed at the dis
posal of the Government. The Attorney
General is certainly in bad odor with
his party, on account of his esponsal of the
Times case, upon- which he staked not only,
his own reputation, but that of the Govern
ment. J4 m , . .
Lord Salisbury is said to be strongly op
posed to throwing overboard tbe Attorney
General, but is in 'favor of the Government
standing or falling together. He has strong
hopes of weathering the present storm and
of preventing a dissolution of Parliament.
There are, however, some members of tho
Government who are not so sanguine nor so
tender-hearted as the Premier, and these
members, with self-preservation in view,
iavor the abandoning ot Sir Eichard Web
ster to the results oi his insistance upon the
Government committing themselves to the
Times case, and believe that in this way
only can the Ministry be' saved. The Lib
erals are loudly calling for Sir Eichard's-'
dismissal, and since the Gladstonian victory
at Bamsley and Kennington this demand
will be more potent
A great difference is noticeable in tha
House of Commons since the Times' defeat.
That event seems to have revolutionized tha
mood and attitude of parties. -The Tories,
keep themselves very close, and make little
attempt to answer the roars and cheers that
rise from the opposition benches. Mr. Par
nell no longer hurries through the lobbies
of the House with that haunted look which
the experiences of the last two years had
given to his face, but lingers in the lobby
chatting and surrounded by eager friends.
CEISIS IN FRANCE.
The Conflict Which Centers on Boulanger la
Pabis, March 15. A committee of the
Liberal Union has been formed with M.
Barbonx as President. M. Leon Saves and
other prominent men have become members.
The committee has issued a manifesto, pro
testing alike against the threatened Cssar
ism andthe Eadicalism which produced it
and urging the, election of a majority of
Moderates to the new chamber In order to
restore Prance's former position in Europe
and to avoid a revolution.
Herr Antoine, who has just resigned his
seat as Deputy fpr Metz in the Eeichstag,
will arrive here to-morrow. He intends to
become a French citizen, and to offer him
self as a candidate for the Chamber of
Deputies in opposition to General Boulanger

step. The Conservative papers re
