(BT TAIILS To TUB fBIB-PBB.1
fepyrioA'; 1988) Hu Tin Trttmot Auoeiatten,
London, Nov. IS.?At the present moment Mr.
Gladsb ne's G nvi nment If- In more serious peril
At the hands of its supporters than from the
work Bf Its avowed enemies. Tho 2*i0 Members
who last week bearded the Lord Chaneellor, and
?vere -severely rebuked for thi lr pains, have noel
B. grievance against Mr. (Hadst.me. The soft
Bnr-wer which the Prime Minister Rave them (lld
nut turn away their wrath, and they have now
launched a sort of manifesto, because h" de?
clines to hurry up the Lord Chancellor in niling
the magistracy with Liberal wire-pullers, mere
nominees of Members whose beal Qualification is
that they are tradesmen, Roamrater*, or of the
right party color.
lt ls also largely owing lo ropportara of the
Government that the Parian cuin.'iis bill pro
SSSded no further than to the secnd of over
seventy clauses, and that Its character was so
altered that it now embrace* principles entirely
outside original intentions. Tba BUpporterfl of
woman suffrage succeeded In beating the Gov?
ernment upon one important point last week,
and owing to that disaster Mr. Gladstone, who
was until lately a decided opponent of
woman suffrage, is now compelled to introduce
a measure giving married women a vote In all
municipal elections for sch""l boards, parish
councils, boards of guardians, district councils,
and the entire machinery of local government.
This opcn8 up a prospect of another great Re?
form bill in the near future, giving to married
women and spinsters the right of voting in par?
liamentary Blactlona, providing they are rate?
payers with the same qualifications as the
Bterner sex. The Conservatives during recent
years, except in isolated cases, have become
converted to woman suffrage. Th*-y have learnt
to realize that with the extension of education
the tendencies of women ar<- to be Conservative,
and to act like a brake on the Radical coach.
Their vote will doubtless be cast against the pub?
licans' la tareela", and so offend one seeti on of
Conservative supporters. Rut women's votes will
mainly benefit the Church party, and will not
support those schemes of tbe trades unionists
which tend to Increase the prices of domestic
So great have been the changes effected by
the Introduction of this suffrage question that
many Members, including Mr. Chamberlain, In?
tend to oppose these extensions at later stages.
The Poor Law clauses were enough of a dead
weight to kill the bill without being further
hampered by the great question of woman suf?
frage. Supporters of the Government may iv.-Il
be anxious. Public opinion would condemn the
introduction of the gag, lest it might become an
ordinary instrument of parliamentary machin?
ery, and at this stage lt would discredit the Gov
Brnment to set aside either the poor law or the
suffrage clauses for separate treatment. cir?
cumstances will compel the new session to begin
in February, and it ls not easy to se.- h.w this
great measure can be disposed of before that
date, If Members are to have any vacation.
Mr. Chamberlain soon made his Influence felt
upon returning to Westminster. His crltldam
on Thursday night of the Employers' Liability
bill provokes the belief that if that powerful
Bpeech had been delivered on the second read?
ing. Mr. McLaren's contracting out claus:- would
have been carried. The ease In favor of this
amendment has ben rentered BO strong by
reason of agitation among insurance associa?
tions connected with railways and other works
that the House of Lords will most certainly Im?
pose Mr. McLaren's f-roposala when the measure
reaches lt. Lord Salis!.ury's aaeurencefl to the
deputation whkh waited oa him reaterda** im?
ply this In no veiled terms. Th-- feeling is so
atong throughout the country In favor of con?
tracting out, when- better oondltlona are ar
rang-'d than tho--.- possible under the bill, that
the Government will find it dUBcull to make a
grievance against the L>rds for their more accu?
rate interpretation of the views of the country
in this particular. It will be the Home Rule bill
The chief opponents of contracting out are the
leaders of trad-- unions, who realise the loss of
strength their organizations will suffer when
large bodies of w.ikinen are aaeoclated with
their employ.?-:? under provident and Insurance
arrangements. Where they exist these arrange?
ments give assistance to workmen In live-fold
more cases that) the provisions of this bill.
The movement to which I referred last Satur?
day. In favor of a large addition to the fleet,
grows apace. This week the demand has been
backed up by two definite schemes, very similar
in detail, by Lord Charles Beresford and Ad?
miral Lord Allister. Both Involve an expendi?
ture of nearly twenty millions sterling. Lord
Roberts. Admiral Hoskins, and in fact every?
body who has discussed the subject, favor the
demand for an expenditure, roughly speaking,
approaching U,MS,00B per annum. The only
opponent has been Mr. Labouchere, and adverse
criticism from such a Quarter may safely be
taken as an argument In favor of the agitation.
The Government has'so far recognised the
tendency of the popular demand thal there ls
good reason for saying they mean to .vi. ld, and
already plans are being discussed with the ob?
ject of strengthening tbs navy to the extent, lt
is believed, of nearly four millions per annum
lt is understood that several recent Cabinet
meetings haw brought to light diversities of
opinion on this subject. An controller of th'
National purse strings, sir "William Harcourt
has been an unwilling convert, in fact, accord?
ing to 8o:n" stories, lt was only th" threat "f
Lord Spemii's resignation that carrie-] the
point. Contrary to ex pe -ta tion, Mr. john .Morley
advocated th<- construction of an al!-p >.v ?.. ul
navy; bat this should not be so very surprising,
for did not the most peaceful of ;,n ?tatosmen,
Richard Cobden, declare h.- did sot uhjs t to
ex-n-nd a hundred millions sterling, If jt were
.necessary In order to maintain an Bngtlsh fl-"t
.equal to the combined strength of Fran :e and
any other power?
The prospect of a deficiency of two millions
sterling in the National balance-sh *'t causes no
little anxiety to the Government. Their Inter?
vention as a pacificator in the coal --trike van
not a day too soon. Many branches of trade
snd many valuable contracts were testing the
country. Owing to falling revenue, all .iillwiiy
shares and Investments In commercial under?
takings were declining; and the steady rhrlnk
aee of business on the Stock Exchange was un*
?Quailed for many years. The settlement ef?
fected by Lord Rosebery, though only tempo.
?Sry, has removed a load of anxieties, and trade
<a already reviving In the manufacturing dis?
tricts. The future, however, ls not without
fare forebodings. Till Christmas many mines,
?Bpeclany thoae whose output is purchased by
contract, will work at a ieee, and unleea there
?* s genuine reduction of wages at the end of
?^?ttMY, when the new Board of Conciliation
becomes operative, we may expect to see an?
other serious dislocation In the coal trade. The
miners' leaders are not only insisting on their
"ld plea, that wages must rule prlcea, bul that
the wages of jane last shall be regarded ."s
the minimum. All this ls regardless of conoe*.
quences to the consumer, whether rich or poor,
or to the general trade of th.- country.
The consumers' grievance ls hurler in the
metropolis than anywhere else. Middlemen in
London form a powerful rinir. which always
operates against the buyer. Colonel North, of
nitrate fame, is the owner of several collieries,
and ls fighting this ring singlehai.ded. selling
dals here at two dollars a ton below the ring's
prices. But others have tried to break the ring
before Colonel North, and failed, as he will prob?
ably fall. Nothing short of a combination of j
colliery proprietors can relieve London of one of
i the millstones which hang around its neck. The
i fish ring ls another metropolitan curse to the
j consumer as well as to the fisherman.
The programme of M. Dupuy's Government is
I fitly described as moderation an.l mediocrity.
The extreme wing may even .all it conspic?
uously conservative. There will he no revision
' Of the Constitution. Why should there be? It
: has returned If, Dupuy and his Mends to power.
' There will ba rn. meddling with the relations ,.f
! Church and State; for has not the rope become
! sympathetic toward the Republic? There will
j be no progressive Income tax, and above all no
: dalliance with Socialists. That the Ministry will
easily beat off the critics Who are conducting
i this week's debate because tb.- programme is
not sufficiently progressive, no one doubts; and
their normal majority will be very large, poSflt<
; bly nearly three hundred.
M. Dupuy's real difficulties will arise on ques
I Hons of finance and foreign policy. Though no
political party will blame them for their inlli
, tary and naval expansion, the Ministers arc . ii
I barrassed by several financial problems which
[ have never been openly faced, Resides the aug?
mentations of the National debt, there are other
obligations that have to be liquidated. There ls
| a large question on hand with the Hank ..f
, France, respecting renewal of its privileges, an.l
1 the vote of the last Chamber reepectlng the es?
tablishment of a Bank "f ("relit his y.-t to be
carried out. Their foreign policy ir- an unknown
quantity. lt will hereafter have to be directed
in the lntere.n of two nations instead of one,
and must be largely dependent on Russia. Some
months wlH elapse before the alliance openly
1 ears fruit. Meanwhile the French Ministry
may have once more become the victim of the
unexpected, which BO often happens In Fran.".
even to the most promising Ministry.
A solvent has somehow been found for the
difficulty between Flame and England re?
specting Slam. We know not what concessions
have been made, but inasmuch as Lord Dufferiu
has not again returned to London, it ls pre?
sumed that matters are going on more smoothly
between him and M. Devalle.
Meanwhile, French Chauvinists are working
up an agitation against F.ngland and Germany
because of the arrangements made by those
countries respecting territories on the Gulf of
Guinea, especially tho transfer of the southern
shores of Lake Tschad to the German sphere of
influence. Lieutenant Mlzon's expedition was
intended to thwart Germany's claims In the
above-named regie.n. Lieutenant MlSon was.
however, a grotes.-ue failure, and had to be re?
called. The French press, even the "D-bats"
and the "Temps," write in apparent Ignorance
of all this, and make claims to the hinterland
of the Cameroons which tao least Inf .-med For?
eign Office clerk would laugh out of court. Rut
any Frenchman's stick ls good en .ugh to beat a
d>g, especially If that animal b?* Gmmany or
Kngland. An Interesting revelation ls made
this morning which ought to help France f> a
better fran-).* of mind toward Great Britain. M.
Charles Gavard was French Charge d'Affaires
in London in l*o'.. His posthumous narrative of
the war scare of that year shows that th- Kng?
lish <'overimient rendered as great service ..
Kussla In preventing Gem.any fi m carrying
out her contemplated etta i< upon Frsnos. The
value of England's mediation was recognized
by ihe Due Deoasss, who not only thanked Lord
Darby for the glorious gwahealng of British
authority, but als-> exprei-H"! his gratitude I i
Mr. Delano, the editor of "The Times,'* for a*up
portlng th'- pacific intervention. How far ev.rn
Lord Derby, who hated the smell of gunpowder,
was prepared tr. go, is Indicated by his sugges?
tion of a possible coalition against Prince Bis
marck if he persisted In his warlike attitude.
One of the most Important patriotic 8
tions ever started in England has just i >me to
grief. The Imperial Federation League was
started about ten years ago, in order to prevent
dislntregation of the Empire, and. if poeolble,
to weld its component pans more closely to?
gether. The leagu" owed its origin very largely
to the efforts of the late AV. E. Forster and I"
leading members of th? Colonial Institute. Lead?
ers Of all political parties took BC ti Ve part in its
proceedings, and there can be no doubt that in
tbe earlier years of Its existence lt gav ? an Im?
mense impulse to the Imperial 1 lea. Bul ii
never accomplished "ne of Its leading objects
the federation of the Oolonles sith n..- mother
country, because Its supporters srere unal.le to
formulate a practical scheme acceptable lo all
Interests. Federation is usually ths out' inc
of war. and nothing short of the necessities of
self-protection will overcome the antagonisms of
some of the great colonies toward each other,

INJURY TO CAPTAIN WATERS.
Springfield. Mass., Nov. 25 (Special).?To bs
plunged from the hlgnest pinnacle of hope ts
the lowest depths of despair was Harvard's
sad fate at Hampd -n Park to-day. Perhaps
never before have her followers boen so con?
fident of defeating Yale on the football field
as they were to-day, but the sun went down on
a glorious Yale victory. The score was a repeti?
tion of that of last year, 6 to 0, so that ths
crimson was not overwhelmingly beaten. Never?
theless, so widespread and deep was the feeling
that Harvard would leave thc ll.-ld victorious
that to lose the game was peculiarly galling
and humiliating. Harvard men left Springfield
t -night utterly broken hearted.
The game Itself was in some respects a most
admirable exposition of the excellences of foot?
ball. Several now plays were presented, and
lu dsfeoafVS work both elevens showed up to
SJOOd advantage. Battle was waged on almost
even terms during the first half, although the
ball was on Harvard's territory the greater
part of tho time. The second half opened with
the bull In Yale's hands, and she never gave lt
up until, at the end of seven minutes of reso?
lute and energetic, almost infuriated, play, she
carrlod it over the Harvard line. Those seven
minutes wrought the crimson's downfall. Her
men seemed unable to resist the terrific rushes
and mass plays of Yale. Space was gradually
gained until a great burst of wild cheers an?
nounced a touchdown.
NO l'l'l'TAUTY EXHIBITED.
Admirers of football must have been pleased
with tho manly way In which the teams played
the game In a soi.se. the sport was on trial
before the bar of public opinion to answer
tho charges >.f brutality and endangering hu?
man limb and life. It was .shown at this, the
greatest of the year's football matches, that
the game ls not necessarily a series of Im?
promptu prize fights. In its essential nature
football ls not for those who are not willing
ami ai.ie to undergo rough usage. To f*ee ths
mass of human b.'ings which falls on the man
with the ball, a person witnessing his Amt
match might well wonder that two or three
men are not disabled in each "scrimmage."
The human form, especially when properly
trained, however, has remarkable powers of
resistance. There was no case of "slugging"
noticed to-day. An untoward Incident was the
knocking over of Butterworth by Manahan,
for which Harvard lost five yards. One man
had to leave tho field. That was Captain
Waters, of Harvard, who sustained an Injury
to his log. This member had CSUSSd hl,m much
trouble before, and had. Indeed, prevented his
doing much practice recently. Several other
men were bruised or suffered shocks, but kept
on to the end of the play.
THE CROWDS ARRIVING.
This city had been filling up with collegians
for several days, and this morning the streets
were crowded with wearers of the blue and the
crlmaon. Trains from New-York brought several
thousand persons last night and this morning.
There were delegations from the New-York Ath?
letic and half a dozen other clubs, the Stock Ex?
change and other organizations. Large numbers
osm ? from H.ston and from a hundred other
p lints in New-England.
The city had attired itself in the garb with
which lt always marks the day of the big foot?
ball match. The colors of tho rival teams were
displayed In show-windows. <m residences and
from flagstaffs. The city t..-day had but a single j
thought, and that was of the contest at Hamp- \
den Park. The crowds surged In the direction
Of the big pleasure ground from 11:30 o'clock
until play was begun. Some went in carriages,
but mos: wained. The greet tiers of seats were
rapidly tilled, and at 2 o'clock the scene was one
Of Inspiring brilliancy.
Four great grandstands formed a frame for
UM Held, marked with broad transverse lines
of white. The goals were at the north and
south ends. The scat- on the eastern side were
Harvard's, and th. y w. rs lilied with an as?
semblage each member of which vied with his
neighbor in th" generous display of crimson,
(in the opp sit- si.ie Yul" sympathizers held
their sway, and over these was a glory of blue.
ali. wu,;i'. BLUE OB crimson.
The decorations of the spectators srere of many
kinds. Some wore only huttons of red or blue,
or a knot Of ribbon; many carried banners fend
many wore single flowers or nosegays to show
on which sid" their hopes were staked. Blue
and crimson mufflers were worn and blue and
crimson parasols were carried. Many displayed
various combinations of these articles, and the
effect of it all was dazzling. The north und
south stands were given over to both sides In?
There was little betting this morning, for
Yale mea were unqiiestli nably loath to back
their stevin. Som.- of them accepted wagers
when Odds were offered, but thi** was partly
due to a feeling of loyalty to theil OOttSgBb
Boms ly,ts ol* Ibu) to $7"> on Harvard were made.
B, B. Talc..tt, of the Stock Exchange, had
' caught the Idea, which prevailed nearly every?
where, that a turning In Yale's long lane of
football success had bSM reached, and he had
b7.&i?> which hs wanted to bet on Harvard
against ti,<m of Yale money. All efforts to
tlnd a taker for moi" than $100 of it were vain.
To-night you may hear "I told you so" on
every hand, but in point of fact Vale's triumph
gave general surprise.
KINE KO 'THAU. WK ITHER.
The day brought with lt nearly Ideal foot?
ball weather. The wind was high enough to
Interfere with or to aid the punting, but the
tsmpers-ture, while low enough tu cali forth
Warna wraps, was n..t exceedingly chill. In?
deed, some hardy young collegians walked
about with their overeats on their arms. Ths
sun shone brightly, in happy harmony with
the holiday scene at the park. The seating
capacity of the standn ls 21.500. and, as all were
crowded and many persons had to stand, doubt.

ernor McKinley sat on the Harvard Ride, and
wan cheered oa ids arrival and departure.
; | Play was to begin at I o'clock, but there was
a delay of seventeen minutes. The spectators
In the mean time cheered and sang parodies of
well-known songs, written for the occasion. At
?ev. n minutes after | th.- Hnrvard eleven,
with twsntavAvs substitutes, coaches, surgeons
ixnd attendants, came upon the i'-ld, welcomed
by, tho acclamations of ten thousand men and
?vnr.u-n. who hoped with all their hearts that
*th(- crimson would flaunt above the blue to
nl-ht. The spectators noticed that the men
?from Cambridge wore ut:lforms of a new and
strr-nge kind. At first they seemed to be of
oil ukin, such a?i ls worn by aoatrjn In a
storm, but nearer Inspection showed them to be
of leather. All wore doublet and breeches of
this, and looked like followers of Robin Hood.
Some had their sleeveless couts patched with
canvas. The advantage of the leather was sup
