London?. May lO.-Sume are not wanting of a
J?amount of discontent, almost darder, in
^Liberal ranks. This te probably only momen?
tary, but the Tories make the ?***_"?
?av* the Irish are playing the Rame of obstruction
tuo low down and the Liberals are staying away
Irom tlic House of Commons rather than take a
hand in it. Only 140 could be whipped together
last night to support one of Mr. Healy's numerous
??Wir? t<> the Crimes act, the Government
in a snudi House having a majority of 87. Mr.
IJliwlstone himself intervened with ? rrotcst
n.ainst protracting discussion; alarmed, say the
fiorics, by disaffection in his own ranks. Tho
disaffection is generally imaginary. Hot weather
lias come, and proceedings in Committee, though
important, aro undeniably tiresome. Mr. W. H,
t-niiUt thought he wne getting on well yesterday,
<t larje number of amendments being disposed of.
Yet tbe committee in nine hours finished oil only
tevea Umi of tbe fiist clause.
If disorder be anywhere visible among the
J.iixials, it is in tbe columns of "The Daily
>c>\s," which turns upon Mr. Healy this morning
in a style usually reserved for Lord Salisbury.
The Irish champion ?B told by his alb' that his
manner was truculent and offensive, his ej>eech
a diatribe, and his topio selected with character
tatto awkwardness, and that he succeeded in
hrindng MlMfll under the just rcbuko of the
t lia ir. "tbe Daily News'' however, is eupposed
to be a?ain in the tlirocs of an editorial ciisis.
Mr. l'arnell's health is again reported to be In a
critical state, this time on high medical authori?
ty. Cancer of the stomach is named as the mala?
dy from which he is suffering. Urgent telegrams
jtom his colleagues in tho House have failed to
bring him back to London. They strenuously
deny all stories of his illness, the effect of which
ou tho |K>liticnl situation is nevertheless consid?
erable. The 'Tory leaders rightly or wrongly be?
lieve Mr. Darnell is not likely to reappear In tlie
Hmm at present if at all.
i-aturday's dinner to Mr. Goschen was a very
rimai kable one in the numbers and cliaraeter of
tl, s-? present. Lerd Salisbury's testimonial in be?
half of his new Cabinet recruit was extremely
cordial. Mr, Uoschen betrayed no particle of
lehret at his own presence in tho Tory Govern?
ment. The Duke of Westminster's speech was
as bitter M brief: bitter, that is, towurd Mr.
??l?dstone, to whom he owes his Dukedom nnd
whom he now describes as the author of the rack
and ruin of the Liberal party.
Orders seem to have gone forth from the Lib?
eral headquarters for Liberals to show Mr. Gos
eben no more favor, "The Daily News," which
1'ionounced his Budget when produced st king and
brilliant, now describes it as shuffling and sham
bliii'.:. But Mr. Goschen is none the less the only
real debater of Cabinet rank whom tbe Tory
Ministry can orpose to the Liberal front bench.
'The verdict of the English press on the Ameri?
can Lxhibition is pronounced in decisive terms.
It is essentially, says uThe Times," a tradesmen's
exhibition. In no sense can it be held represent?
ative of the industries of the States, as the Cana
(lian (ou?t last year was representative of the
llwUllqi This ig, continues "The Times,'' en?
tirety a private enterprise, tho main puiposo of
which is to pay thoso who have risked their
money. "??? Daily Tele.-raph" thinks ]>o<>ple
will hardly uudeitake a tour to West Brompton
tu nu with ecstacy into a case of grinnitu'
laic teeth or liquid fish glue, or at an iionclad
bran-duster. Other papers write in similar tone.
ell. however, agrceins,' that there is ft great deal
worth seeing now and will be moie still when tbe
exhibit? are all ready.
'Ihey a^ree still more emphatically that the real
show is Buffalo Hill's. Americans really owe
BOM?dOg to him. He has redeemed iiom some?
thing like contempt an exhibition to which a
British M-eeulalor has attached tho name Ameri?
can. It was Colonel Cody who drew most of
,M-'(iila>\ immense throng, computed at over
20,000, to Karl's Court. ??? number of people
who went to the oi?cning ceremony was small
compared with the multitude who rushed to seo
tbe Wild West. Archdeacon Earrar's prayer,
which the EagLfeh thought an incongruous clement
In the proccedint's ; Colonel Russell's speech,
whiel? they pronounced that of a'born orator;
Mr. Whitlevh? address, of which they say nothing;
Mile. Nordiea's simrinrr, and all tbe rest of the
I'lutform jierformances were but little regarded.
larttatteM to the opening, whkh had been sent
literally by thousand?., were treated simply as
Imitations to the Wild West show. Nothing
Itniek me jig more remarkable than the cool way
lu which Mr. Whitley and his Colleagues in the
peranony wert ignored,
The number of really distinguished and fashion?
able people who came was really extraordinary.
Most of them made their way at once to tho boxes
or reserved ?eats in the grand stand and never
went near the main buildiufj. Tho papers pub?
lish no lists of celebrities, but a column eould
easily be filled. I saw no Royalties. The Royal
box wasoccupied by Madame Waddinsrton, wife of
the French Ambassador, Count and Countess
D'Anbigny, Bm?M l'aclia, the Turkish Ambassa?
dor, and Cardinal Manning. The American Lega?
tion was who'ly unrepresented. Tho invitation
(Kilt to the American Minister, thongh printed on
satin with a fringed border, was declined. Mr.
Plie.ps nirhtly thinking his presence might be con?
strued as lending official sanction to the enterprise
with which the promoters so long tried to connect
the American Ooveranient. Mr. Lowell was
iuvited but declined. Near the Royal box
were Countess Spencer, the Countess of Rosebery,
Mrs. l'hipps. Countess De Grey, Lady Ciiar'es
Beresford, Viscountess Curzon, Mrs, Adair, Mrs.
Art inr Post and Lady Dorothy Nevill. while in the
boxes at the other end were visible the J lUo?MW ol
UariboMugh, the D?chese of Bedford, Lady Ran?

with Mr., Mrs. and Miss dquhart Then came Col?

Lad ? Tburlow, Mrs. Konalds, Mrs. Mackay, the
Duke of Marlboroii/h, Mr. Christopher Bykes, Sir
Charles I'eni.ant and Ins daughter and scores more
of the best known people ? London. Carriages
lined both sides of the street in every direction lor

Franklin Ilowell, age twenty-four, vice-president of the

After a tedious search his friends found him at the hntisa

distant relativo of IIowelL The latter'? friends Informed

and requested the Thomases to take care of him as long
as he wished to remain. Ilowell stayed in Pittsburg for
about six weeks longer ani eventually became engaged
to be married to ? member of the Thomas family, Miss
Margaret Thomas, who Is al>out twenty. A date, about
tho middle of April, was fixed for the marriage and then
Ilowell camo back to Perant?n. On the day on which

NkwHavkv, May 10.?Mrs. Margaret Ernst, age
seventy two, was murdered some time last night. This
meaning a milkman was surprised to find the iront
door wide open, ami entering the house found tbe old
woman on a sola, bound hand and loot. A hasty
examination convinced tho milkman that Mrs. Ernst
was dead, and be immediately informed the police.
When found Mrs. Ernst lay on an old-taehioned
lounge in tbe iront room ot tho house, wbiob was used
as a barroom. Her bands were tied across her breast
with a handkerchief inni her limbs were bound to?
gether with another. Still another was stuffed into
her mouth and a sheet was round her throat so as to
completely envel?te her head. Dr. White made an
examination ami found that death was caused by
strangulation. Tho room directly in tho rear ot tho
barroom was occupied by tbo old woman as a bed?
room, lu the room everything was topsy lurvy.
Tbe beeoai el Mrs. Krnst's dress had also been torn
open, ?ini it is probable that a cousiderablo amount ot
money aae found on bed The murdered woman was
worth at least $'20,000. It transpired that sho was to
make a new will this week, and it is thought possible
that some one ir.tores'ed in lier will ma?lo two years
