thero went with Ii in as tho representative
of (ho government Vkcount Crois, the

iialo member of tho Cabinet, but by the
Frrmlcr himself. It was probable, in an
ticipation ot tho comments whtrh wcro
Inevitable, that tho Couu Journal hastened
to explain lu advance that Lord Salisbury
would bo uuatle to do tho honors upon the
occasion lu couscquruco of tho fact that a
launict mreiiug uau ncen collul for tho
s. me day and hour.
But at tho aristocratic clubs, whoro tho
Inner doings of the "divinity that doth
hedge about a king" aro discussed with a
good deal of frcrdom, another explanation
Is given of his Lordship's nbsoncc, and It Is
suppoilcd In ono particular of circum
stantial csldcucolu tho fact that the call
for the Cabinet meeting was not Issued tin
1.1 tho Court Journal had appealed wlt'i Its
rnounccment, and that, moreover, tho con
fcrcrco Itself was ot so littlo Importance
that It lasted barely a quarter of an hour.
The story as It Is told Is that there Is a
Krious urcuch between Her JlaJcsiy aud
lord Salisbury, as a result of the latter's
failure to vote for tho bill legalizing mar
riago with a deceased wife's sister, and
which was defeated lu tho Houso of Lords a
couple of weeks ago.
It Is pretty generally known that tho
Queen was paitloularly desirous that tho
mcrstlro should become a law, and that
although sho never Inrcrfcrcs dlrcctlwlth
legislative mailers, she had caused a hlntof
her dcslro In this couucclton to bo con
Vcied to tho Premier. Tlin lnllor. I.nnr.

voted against it tlmo and again, and did not
propo-o to s.ultlfy himself, elthor by
changing front aud supporting It or by
uslrg bis Influcnco with his cdllcaguo In Its
behalf and remaining away from tho debato
and division himself.
So ho went to tho Houso as usual, sat
quietly in his seat wb'lo the dobate was In
progress, ond then, with several other mem
bers of tho Cblnct, voted "No" upon tho
second reading, while tho Prince ot Wales,
with Earls (Iranvlllo, Spencer and Rosen-bei.-y,
and other distinguished statesmen,
recorded themselves as lu fuvor of tho bill.
When tho uows of the defeat of the bill
resched Windsor tho Queen, It Is said,
waxed exceeding wroth, and oxnrcssed
heitclf very forcibly rcgardlug Lora Sails

Bald that the present Premier's relations
with Her Majesty aro even more Urulucd,
than wcro thoso of Mr. Gladstouo aud tho
