London, Hay 1L Copyright Minis
ters of the Government are in anxious coun
cil to-day to consider whether or no they
shall make the passage of the bill ratifying
the anti-sugar bounty convention a question
of confidence. Some of the bolder spirits,
including Balfour, were in favor of com
pelling the Commons to accept, rightly ar
guing that Tory and Liberal-Unionist mal
contents would swallow their principles, if
confronted with the alternative of a dissolu
tion of Parliament, and the worries and
expenses of a general election, in which
many would certainly lose their seats.
Moderate-minded ministers, however, dread
jed subjecting the Unionist alliance to a

The Liberal leaders, more than any one
else, will regret the Government's decision,
for it has deprived them of what promised
to be far and away the best and liveliest
fight of the session. '
It is probable that the ministerial de
cision will not be immediately announced,
the idea in some influential quarters being
that if the Government were to climb down
jnst now it would look like an undignified
surrender to popular clamor.
A Cabinet Without Dignity.
This idea is somewhat funny. There is
sot enough dignity left among the entire
Cabinet to fight out an organ grinder. Dur
ing the past fortnight, Salisbury has been
approaching, cap in hand, nearly every
leading Liberal-Unionist and some Tory
peers, in the vain hope of obtaining a suit
able successor to Lord Londonderry as Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland. It is currently re
ported that he has received over a dozen re
fusals. No peer worth his salt will play
second fiddle to Balfour and the viceregal
throne in the stormy time coming will be as
uncomfortable as a bed of prickly pears.
In these melancholy circumstances the old
project is revived of a residential prince of
the blood in Dublin with an allowance suf
ficienty liberal to enable him to maintain a
court, the brilliancy of which shall dazzle
Irish eyes and turn the wicked nationalists
from the error of their way.

The Irish bureaucrats and their British
ailies, alarmed at the successful arbitration
in the dispute on the Vandeleur estate, are
plotting to thwart a general movement in
favor ot a peaceful settlement of agrarian
troubles in other districts, and their meth
ods are so simple thatit is too probable they
will succeed. Large sums of money have
been raised at the Tory clubs in London and
amontheTory aristocracy, and this is de
voted to the support of the cvictinglandlord

proportions its promoters intend, it will be
necessary for tenants to form, with English
assistance, a pool of their own. The Irish
leaders are anxiously considering the mat
ter, and may be trusted to do the best for
their poor people.
The week in the Parnell commission court
has not been altogether satisfactory. Mr.
Parnell's examination and cross-examination
resulted in a veritable triumph for the
Irish leader, whose political record has
stood the minutest apd most malignant
scrutiny of his detractors and enemies. But
the attempt to prove-the true causes of the
agrarian troubles by the evidence of Irish
bishops was stopped by the extraordinary
ruling of the commissioners. On behalf of
the Times, witness alter witness, mostly
police officers aud magistrates, were
Permitted to Give Opinions,
draw inferences, and suggest causes for out
rages and other excrescences on the Na
tional movement, but the Irish leaders are
not to be allowed equal license. Their wit
nesses mnst. be rigidly confined to facts
within their personal knowledge. In view
of what has been going on for months past,
the ruling is scandalously unfair. But it
will have to be submitted to. Its immedi
ate effect will be to quadruple the number
of witnesses necessary to call frtrthe defense,
and it may defer for several months the
final triumph of the Irish leaders. i
A MARITAL MISTATE.
Evidence That the English Often Marry the
Wrong Sister First Continued At
tempts to Pass the Deceased Wife's
Sister Marriage Bill.
rBT CABLE TOTES DISPATCH. J
London, May 11. The bill which seeks
to legalize marriage with a deceased wife's
sister made its annual appearance in the
House of Lords On Thursday, and was duly
rejected, this time by a majority of 27, the
bishops, as usual, assembling in full force
and voting en masse against it The Prince
of Wales also, as usual, did his best to in
duce the peers to support the bill, and re
corded his own vote in its favor.
The history of the bill is curious. Years
ago some wealthy men who had contracted
illegal unions with their sisters-in-law met
and agreed to subsidize agitation in favor of
an alteration of the marriage laws, by means
of this bill. The agitation has been since
kept going entirely by the money of rich
Jteople personally interested in seeing the
aw changed. There is little popular inter
est in the question.
The Prince of Wales originally cham
pioned the bill for 'family reasons, the
Queen being desirous that the Princess
Beatrice should marry her brother-in-law,
the Grandduke of Hesse. Ultimately she
got tired of waiting and married young
Battenburg, but the Prince of Wales has
remained faithlul to the cause. The House
of Commons has frequently passed the bill,
and one year the promoters caught the
bishops napping and rushed it to a second
reading, by a small majority, but at a later
stage the lords' spiritual mustered in over
whelming force and threw out the bill.
It is probable the bill would pass if the
promoters would drop the clause making its
operation retrospective, but this would not
suit the noble and wealthy patrons who.
want their irregular unions legalized and
their S2iprlng legitimized, arthc' jssme timeV

London, May 11. It was announced
that ex-Mayor Hewitt, of New York, would
attend a Unionist meeting addressed by
Balfour in London, this week, but whether
he intended to go or not, he was not there.
On the evening of the Unionist meeting he
was a guest at a banquet of the Iron and
Steel Institute, and addressed the members.
He caused considerable sensation among
them by prophesying that the Southern
States ot America would become the center
of the world's hardware trade. This theory
is quite new to Englishmen, and startling.
I saw Abram S. Hewitt at the Bristol
Hotel this morning. He was suffering from
severe cold in the head, which added no
charm to his usual crustiness of manner.
He was somewhat irritated by the report
spread by English newspapers that he had
been staying with the Dnke and Duchess of
Marlborough. The report, he said, was
quite untrue, and he also thought it very
improper to ask him questions about the
health of the Duchess. He remarked that
he wanted to secuie quiet in London; that
he had come away from New York to for-
fet the city for a -time, and that the less he
eard about it the better it would be.

DISSIPATION OP FRENCH WOMEN.
The Opium Habit Causing a Great Amount
of Talk Just Now.
rBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. 1
XONDON, May XL The morphlne'habit,
which is causing such an amount of talk in
Prance, is receiving attention from English
reviewers and medical men. It would ap
pear, according to some of the commentators
on the vices of dissipated folk, that all sorts
of ghastly dissipations have been adopted
by women who have nerves and other
idiosyncrasies. On this side of the water
tea cigarettes have been superseded by
cigarettes filled with various herbs, in
cluding opium, which are smoked by the
women of London who ran to that sort of
thing, while the number of ingenious drugs
which have been introduced among the
women of Paris is too long to enumerate.
There is little serious doubt about the ex
tent to which this particular torm of dissi
pation has taken in Paris, but nfost of the
talk in London apparently emanates from
professional alarmists who are forever
writing to the editors of the daily papers.

Washington, May 11. ThePresident's
rebuff of several negro delegations from the
South, notably his stinsing advice to the
Alabamans to refrain from aspiring to lead
the Bepnblican party, has produced in lhe
minds of the colored people a state of mind
very different from that observed shortly
after the Presidental election. Then the

cratic administration made the negroes in
solent The relations between the races
-were anything but amicable.
The present fceljpg is one of general irri
tation. The North Carolina negroes, so
visitors state, are not only migrating to the
Southwest, but those who remain refuse to
take any part in politics. Some are actu
ated by a desire to cast Suspicion on the
Democrats, as if to charge that the latter
prevent the colored voters from 'going to the
polls, as in Lafayette parish, Louisiana, but
the greater number appear to be thoroughly
disgusted with politics.

This was notably the case in municipal
elections a day or two ago. The negroes at
Baleigh said tfiat they much regretted ever
having gone solidly with the Bepnblican
party. They declared that they had accom
plished nothing for themselves and nothing
for public interests. v
The negroes are just now restive because
they are not recognized by President Har
rison as they expected to be, while "white
Bepnblican" movements are everywhere
smiled upon. There are also industrial
reasons for their discontent Farming in
terests in the South have not prospered at
equal pace with manufactures. The new

the blacks who migrated earlier in the year
to Kansas and Louisana have returned to
Virginia and the Carolinas.
Tne improvidence or the race is every
bit as great now as It was in the days when

question proper is the question of what will

Southerners is deemed one of more impor
tance than the other as a political question,
of what shall be done for him.
PBOGBAMME FOB THE TUTUBE.
In the next Congress beyond doubt we are
going to see the Chandler role played by
the whole Bepnblican party. The policy of
taking control of Southern elections is just
now very popular in that party, although
signs ate not wanting that a revolt from it
mar be expected sooner or later. This
policy will have for its chief objects the re
duction of Democratic members in Con
gress, and in some degree the reconciliation
of the negroes to the Bepnblican party. It
is not expected that the measure will settle
what is called the Southern question, but it
is the only thing short of broad politics too
magnanimous for the men in power to con
ceive and set on foot, which will meet the
case at all.
Thus we shall have, in the opinion of all
Democrats and some clear-sighted Bepnb
licans, a policy Inaugurated which obscures
the true issue of negro self-help and keeps
open indefinitely the sectional sore with
which the better part of the country has
long since become disgusted.

ISPECIAL TELEQBAMrO TBI DISPATCH.!
Barrisburq, May 1L The 51,000,000
which the Legislature added to the appro
priation for the support of the common
schools for the next two, years will likely
result in the disapproval of a consider
able number of appropriation bills' and
the cutting down of the amounts
allowed in others. The House Committee
on Appropriations was asked to give the
schools $4,000,000, but it would not allow
more than $3,000,000 because, in its opinion,
the revenues did not justify the larger
amount. The House though't otherwise, and
increased the amount a round $1,000,000,
and the Senate ratified its work. The Gov
ernor finds that if the schools are to have
52,000,000 a year annually there must be a
material curtailment of the aggregate de
manded by other appropriation Dills.
The item in the general appropriation bill
providing for the expenditure of 75,000 for
the purchase of dress uniforms for the Na
tional Guard will probably be vetoed in con
sequence of the large amount voted the
schools. The Governor is understood to be
kindly disposed toward the proposed im
provement in the appearance of the militia,
but the finances of the State are not thought
by him to warrant the outlay required.
General Hastings is strongly, in favor ot the
appropriation, tut he does not talk like one
who believes the Governor will approve it
The appropriation of $50,000 to the Phila
delphia Veterinary Hospital is also saicL to
be in danger of a veto because of the in
sufficiency of the revenues to meet the ex-
Lpenses that would be involved in the ap-
vroval of the arjoroDriation bills.
Among the last bills signed by the Gov
ernor are the following: Authorizing the
extension of the charters of State provident
institutions, savings institutions and sav
ings banks for 20 years and providing the
methods and restrictions under which such
extension can be made; authorizing Or
phans' Courts to approve private sales of

points of superiority over that gun.
The test to-day was for rapidity of firing,

He .Wants the Contract With Gilliland and
A SETTLEMENT OF ACCOUNTS DEMANDED.
Mr. Edison Claims Tbat He Was Qalded Blindfolded
Into a Trap.! '
Thomas A. Edison has.brought suit against
Gilliland and Tomlinson, of the Phonograph
Company, for an accounting to him and pay
ment of all sums due him as inventor of the
phonograph, and which he claims they have
obtained by treachery and breach of faith.
He thinks he is not receiving anything like
what he should for the work of his brain.
rSPECIAL TELIQBA1I TO THE DISPATCH.1
New YobK, May 11. The news of a de
cided breach in the friendly relations between
Thomas A. Edison ou the one side and on
the other Ezra T. Gilliland, the manager of
the Edison Phonograph Company, and
John C. Tomlinson, long Mr. Edison's
confidant and personal counsel, was
confirmed to-day. Mr. Edison through
his solicitors, Eaton & Lewis
and Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll, of counsel,
filed a bill in equity in the United States
Circuit Court, charging Mr. Gilliland and
Mr. Tomlinson with treachery and breach
of faith toward him, and demanding that
they make account to him for money re
ceived as his agents, and pay to him such
moneys as the court may deem equitable.
In his bill Mr. Edison declares tbat he is
an inventor who has gathered about him
many employes, attached to him by ties of
friendship as well as of interest, who have
giyen him their faithful devotion aud have
received his confidence and favor in return.
FOOLED BY HIS FBIENDS.
Mr. Edison says that it has been his
practice to reward these -persons by giving
them stock in his inventions, and that in
particular he induced Mr. Gilliland to leave
the American Bell Telephone Company,
giving him a much larger sum
annually, than Gilliland previously re
ceived; that he found John C. Tomlinson, a
lawyer, "having an inconsiderable business
and earning but a very small income," and
made him wealthy by retainers, and placed
him upon the list of personal associates and
friends whom he was in the habit of reward
ing for services in the manner described.
Mr. Edison recites the formation of the
Phonograph Company, of whose 12,000
shares of stock he owned all but 40. The
Phonograph Company was to sell none of
its machines itself, but all this; was to be
done through Gilliland as general agent
Gilliland had a contract to do this, which
amounted to a monopoly of the sale of the
The bill declares" that no consideration
was paid by Gilliland; that no sales of
phonographs were ever made by him under
the contract, and -that in consideration of
receivfag'i&e contract-he- agratd ty holdjt
subject to Edison's 'pleasure and absolute
control, and. always to make add hold, his
contracts of like nature subject to the same
COAXED INTO THE CONTRACT.
Mr. Edison then states that in May,of
last year Gilliland and Tomlinson agreed
to negotiate the sale of Edison's stock in
the phonograph company; that he (Edison)
was reluctant to sell his stock, but was
urged to do this by the defendants; but
that finally all the stock was sold to Jesse
H, Lippincott for $500,000. Then comes
the pith of Mr. Edison's charges. JHe de
Daring the progress of the negotiation for
tbe sale of the said stock, and as a cart there
of, tne said OUliland and Tomlinson also ne
gotiated with tbe said Lippincott a sale of the
said Gilliland agency contract, and Included a
sale of said stock: that the said negotiations
for the sale of your orator's stock and said
Gilliland' contract were carried by defendants
ax the same time and the sale of both stock and
contract consummated on the same day; that
pending the said negotiations the defendants
Informed your orator of their intention to sell
the said Gilliland agency contract for the sum
of (250,000 in stock in a company intended to be
organized by the Bald Lippincott for the pur
pose of acquiring the phonograph patent rights
for tbe united States of America; but these
defendants at the same time represented to
your orator that the stock aforesaid, to be re
ceived by them under agreement for the said
OF UNCERTAIN VALUE
and would not exceed, under the most favora
ble circumstances, a cash value of 575,000,
whereas the fact Is that at the time of such
representation the defendants knew the same
to be untrue, and knew that they then held an
additional agreement cotemporaneous with the
agreement between your orator and the said
Lippincott; that if the sale of
both said Edison phonograph stocks and
Gilliland contract should be successfully
accomplished he would repurchase from them,
at their option, the said $250,000 of stock at par;
tbat the defendants concealed from your
orator such additional agreement with said
Lippincott and your orator was not aware at
tho time of his signing and executing- the said
agreement with Lippincott that, as a part of
the same transaction, the defendants were to
receive the said 8250,000 of stock with an option
to sell the same to said Lippincott for cash,
dollar for dollar.
That your orator, if be had known the fact3
- T-s ".. . I
aforesaid, would not have executed the agree-J
ment aforesaid, and the defendants well knewl
that he would not have done so; and your ora
tor cnarges tnat tne aeienuaats conceaiea tne
facts In the premises from your orator, well
knowing that if jonr orator knew the facts
aforesaid he would have demanded a larger
sum for his stock in the Edison Phonograph
Company, and would thus have Imperiled the
sale of said Gilliland Agency contract, which
was of the Edison Phonograph Company.
THE BATES OF PROFIT FIXED.
Appended to the bill is a copy of the con
tract of Gilliland as general agent, whereby
Gilliland is appointed sole agent. The re
spectivejrates of profit are fixed. Op each
phonogfaph the Edison Company is to have,
20 percent of tbe cost as royalty, andon the
total sum thus obtained the company is to
have 35 per cent profit The difference be
tween tbat and the price charged the
public is to be allowed to Gilliland
for -expenses, and 15 per cent of the
cost of the phonographs to Gilliland is to be
allowed to him as personal compensation,
The selling price to the publio is to be mu
tually agreed upon by Gilliland and the
company; and Gilliland promises to buy
from the company, and to sell each year a
certain number of the phonographs, this
number to be agreed upon by arbitration if
necessary. Anyway, every year for five
years -from the beginning of Gilliland's
agency.the number of phonographs he must
sell must be increased 10 per cent
