A cable to the New York Sun
from Paris says: Professor Peter
Steins alleges that he has discovered
the secret of restoring sight to the
blind. An announcement is pub
lished in the Revue des Revue by
Dr. Caze, who explains how Pro
fessor Steins tested on him a won
derful apparatus of Stein's inven
tion by which the professor is not
only able to restore lost sight but
to give vision to those who have
never known it.
Steins took Caze into a dark room
and bandaged his eyes so he could
not sec. He heard the professor
walk to and fro, stiikc a match and
light a lamp. Then he felt an ap
paratus fixed around his temples,
whereupon he instantly saw n dim
light which enabled him to distin
guish surrounding objects. Pre
sently the light became stronger
and Caze was able to count the pro
fessor's fingers when they were held
up before him and to enumerate
other things in the room. Just as
he vas feeling that his vision was
clearing further and he was con
vinced that he would soon see nor
mally, Steins suddenly removed the
apparatus and Caze was in total
Stein's claim rests on the theory
that man does not see with the eye
but with the brain, the eye only
serving to receive the image, which
the optic nerve transmits to the
seat of reception. If, then, the
image can be transmitted to the
brain without the eyes, a blind per
son can see as well as any one else.
The professor's apparatus has the
same' scientific basis as the tele
phone, with the substitution of
light for sound.
Caze says several other physi
cians have experimented with the
apparatus, but none of them is able
to explain how the astonishing re
suits are obtained.
Army Intrigue Against King.
Belgrade, April 15. Several
officers have been arrested here for
conspiring against King Alexander.
King Alexander of Servia is not
popular with tlte officers oi the
army and he considers that they
are responsible for many of the
disgraceful stories that have been
circulated broadcast concerning
him, At times they have charged
that he was a raving maniac and at
others that he was making alliances
that would not suit Servia. Recent
ly they have charged that he is
making efforts to secure closer rela
tions for Servia with Austria than
is good for the country.

Chief Spcrelnry for Ireland Makes
Vigorous Speech ill Mniicliciiter.
lvondon, April 4. Viscount Cran
borne, Under Secretnry for Foreign
Affairs, speaking nt St. Albans last
night, said that, although he did
not believe n dissolution of the
House of Commons was imminent,
the Unionist party ought to be
prepared for all contingencies.
Mr. Wyndham. the Chief Secre
tary for Ireland, speaking at Man
chester Inst night, alluded to the
same subject. He said that he be
lieved that when the bell rang for
the next elections the Tory party
would be found ready, and would
again carry its flag to victory. Re
ferring to the Ashland bill, Mr.
Wyndham believed that it would
be repudiated. Ireland, he said,
had not enjdyed the opportunities
at the disposal of other parties of
the empire, partly because in 1881,
Parliament, instead of giving her
justice, gave her litigation. Fur
thermore, the last fifty or sixty
years, the age of steam and coal,
had not been happy or profitable
for Ireland, a country lacking in
mineral wcallh. Apart from the
justice of the case, continued the
speaker, it was to England's inter
est that Ireland should have a fair
opportunity to develop her agricul
ture. "In time of peace," said Mr.
Wyndham, "Ireland is our best
customer, and in war times, when
everything depends upon our con
trol of the sea, it would be well to
have a big meat supply in Ireland.
Every true imperialist wishes Ire
laud to be a bridge, and not a chasm,
between ourselves and Canada, and
with Canada I would associate our
kinsmen in the United States, and
for even a possible chance of attain
ing that object it was worth while
to make an effort."
Iu seeking a solution he would
set only two limits: One, that we
must not weaken the imperial
credit, and the other, that we must
not sap the elasticity of our revenue,
which is our reserve iu times of
danger. Assent having been given
to the policy of agrarian peace he
was hopeful that the result of the
Irish laud bill would be something
they would contemplate with pleas
ure. The Liberal papers this morning,
commenting on Mr. Wynilham's
remarkable speech at Manchester
last night and the flying rumors of
the Government's intention to ap
peal to the country on a programme
of self-government for Ireland, de
clared that it might have been the
speech of a Gladstonian, so friendly
were its accents toward Ireland, and
the wisdom of trusting the Irish
people and conciliating the Irish
sentiment iu the United States and
The Daily News remarks the sig
nificant silence of Colonial Secretary
Chamberlain on the Irish problem
and the Irish land bill, and the fact (
that the Government appears to be I
threatened with the alternatives of;
defeat or dependence on the Irish 1
Michael Davitt contributes to the
Daily News a long article, in which
he discusses these points. Mr.
Davitt shows that the Irish laud
bill embodies, to a certain extent,
the policy which Mr. Chamberlain
advocated iu 1888, though it con
tains larger financial proposals than
Mr. Chamberlain then favored,
and it does not provide for provin-
cial councils as an authority L'-'
tween the imperial Government
and the tenants. Mr. Davitt thinks
that some sort of measure of self-'
government for Ireland will almost
inevitably follow the adoption ol ,
the Irish laud bill.
William Redmond, speaking in
Loudon last night, said that King '
Edward was assured of a courteous
welcome in Ireland because Irish
men, even iu the hottest moments
of agitation, always recognize that
the King was not responsible for
the misgovernnient of Ireland.
