plclons and this open avowal of an angry Jealousy
very grave results may flow.
A second attack by the French, on British
troops on the frontier nf Sierra Let.nc has oc?
curred. Tho K-igllsh endure these accidents pa?
tiently enough, but lt ls suggested to the French
Oovernrrtr-nrihnt two such blunders ar. enough.
The TimiiuCfiiii fa lamil y diverts attention from
8ierra* Leone.' Colonel Bonnier a column seems to
have been completely surprised at night by the
Touaregs, and destroyed. The French Govern?
ment are said to have more news than they
pubffjth, but what is published Is b. be made an
excuse for holding Tlmbuctoo, which otherwise
would hare been abandoned. But fof these
African troubles th.- French Government might
be said to have bad a good week.
The execution of Vaillimt strengthened both
Ministers and President; yet thc Paris papen
continue to show ? morbid interest In everything
relating to him, his family, his burial, bis will
and his associates.
Next week in England ought to be interesting,
Mr. Gladstone will be back. The House of Com
imins resumes. The Liierai Federation will be
In session, and lome Idea of what the year is
to bring forth may then be formed. The attack
on what "The Dally News" calls the "obsequious
horde of nonentities," the House of I...rds to wit,
seems to be rather rapidly developing. Il I11 de?
veloping, I mean, if not in the country or among
the people of England whose p.Utica! future ls
concerned, among the professional politicians,
The Caucus ls going to try 1 fall with the Second
Chamber.
ttrt Liberal Federation, which ls the great
eeumis Of all. meets mi Tuesday at Portsmouth,
and the doom of the House of Lords ns a legisla?
tive i, ?jv is then to he announced. Such, at any
rate. In th" prophecy of the party organ. "It ls
certain," Bays this inspired oracle, with rather
appalling. Solemnity, "that the Federation Will
take a Vdfy pronounced Uno (tn, the .subject "
Slr WRliajn Hare .url ls to appear as thc dis?
penser of damnation and "will address the great
meeting in thoTjrrll hall.*'
A menace of this lott li by no means to bc
despised! lt ls fair ?wstntbg io ths Loyda that
all that can be done for Mn iv (tat met ion by
the machine,'-will be dune. There remains the
very Interesting ajuestlon how far the country
will respond bi thc. invitation from Portsmouth.
That also is, to Some extent. .1 question of the
future. If lt be In truth Mr. Gladstone who
sanctions the annr>uiie?njent of the caucus., if ho
means to draw the sword and throw away the
scabbard, any agitation which ho leads must
be formidable. Short of that there ls not na
yet very much 11 show that it w..uii 1," form!
dablc.
The experiment was tried last autumn up in
the rejection of thc HOBOS Rule bill, and failed
Ignominiously. Not much has happened iMCe.
The Lords have amended the Kmployers' Lla
biUty bil) and the Parish Councils bill. Both '
are questions of fsstatf There lg hardly B broad
visible Issue on either on which to rouse tho
country. But there is nothing else which is no*
more or less ancient Malory. Mr. Chamberlain.
In a speech this week at Birmingham, makes
light f'f the msnCrfi Of tho canons, in his pres?
ent capacity of defender of the House which he
formerly attacked, lt ls his business to make
light of the danger; and hs does it very well.
But I Imagine thnt If a serious attack ls to be
made, it will not be so much on speotfM ns on
general grounds: two above all. First, on the
hereditary chamber because lt ls hereditary; sec?
ond, because lt stands In the way of certain
measu"es which a large m Ctloa, though not a
majority, of thc people of Great Britain wish to
become law. But Mr. Chamberlain again puts
his finger on a weak spot. The Lords at present,
though not elective, are representative. They
do give effect to the willies of the majority of
the people of Great Britain. They are the legis?
lative allies&l the majority Of British representa?
tives in The House of Commons. It li only when
you count Tn the irish that there ls a majority
the other ny 'fl any of the three bills now at
Stake. Tho lri?h nave r, right to be counted In,
Mit whether tho Hritlsh majority will not staml
by its own champions ls the real questi.'n to bc
answered.
Mr. Gladstone arrives to-night from Biarritz to
take command of his party, which during his
month's absence sectus to have got a little out
of hand. It was thought he would find time en
route to telegraph a dental of the Delonclo inter?
view, but none appears this morning. M. Ds
loncle ls a mun Of son,.- position, and has prob?
ably had some sort of intercourse, direct or
indirect, with Mr. Gladstone. But the language
put into the Prime Minister's mouth is totally
unlike, la sui.sta ncc and in manner, anything ho?
over sail. There are a good many people who
think he is coming back to .precipitate an Issue
with the upper house, dissolve Parliament and g>
to th? country with the cry, "Down with the
Lords:" Knless he has Information as to the
Hint-* of public opinion nol accesslbls to others,
it would be a policy full of peril.
What the plaintive Radical 1 ads sometimes the
mauling, and sometimes th" mutilation, and
occasionally the mangling, of tho Parish Coun
ells bill has como to an end. The hill has passed
through committee In the Lords, lt emerges shorn
of much of Its Radicalism anil Agrarianism.
London is put back into tbs hands of the Ves?
tries. Kerleslastlcal charities nro restored to the
trustees designated by the foumlors. Allotments
are granted, with restrictions conceived in the
interest Of the farmer i|tiite as much as of tbs
landlord. The principle of the bill remains.
Probably some amendments have been Intro?
duced with a view to that compromise between
the two houses to which both look forward.
Some are extreme, som? Illiberal. BORM certainly
unwise. Lord Salisbury gave way to the 1'uke
of Tievonshire an the question of compounding
rates, which involved, said the Radicals, dis?
franchisement of a large class Of voters. He
gave way to other colleagues on oth< r taints.
Forthwith the Radical organs, who have ben
taunting tho puke of Devonshire with subser?
viency to Lord Salisbury, cry out thnt Lord Salis?
bury has surrendered to tho linke. They have
been saying for years that Lord Salisbury was
the House of Lord*. They now say the Lords
do not know politics enough to follow their
leader. But inconsistency has no terrors for tho
Radical mind: The Radical, however, on this as
on some other matters, will have to srbtnlt f ti?
the present to Mr. (Redstone's authority.
A little spurt of Socialist!" Anarchy has broken
out on Tower Hill, one Williams announcing
that If tho police interfered with his next pro?
cession ho proposed to s-uid them to Heaven by
"chemical parcel post." It turns out that this
neat phrase was originally used by Mr. John
Burns before that eminent reformer had put
the varnish of respectability on his natural vio?
lence. But as Mr. Rums is now a London
County Councillor, Lord Rosebery's honored obj.
leagiu-. a..Member of Parliament and Mr. As
o,uittila ally, lt becomes awkward to proceed
against Williams for morely quoting the words
used by his distinguished predecessor In his mob
leading days.
Williams, however, has varied the language.
He recommends explosives that can bs carried

Home Secretary to proi.1 against him.
Mr. Robert Buchanan has achieved ,1 very c,,n.
slderable feat. Hs has contrived t., present
Hleherd Brinsley Sheridan to an English, audi?
ence as dull, solemn, priggish and vulgar. The
ptayoealM "I?|ck Sheridan" which Mr. Cmyns
Cart- hits produced at the Comedy Theatre, |g an
even less successful dramatic effort than "The
Charlatan" at lbs Haymarket, by the same
author. It ls, I believe, the same whleh Mr.
Krohmen, wisely declined to bring out in 'Xew
Tork, preferring ho pay n large forfeit to the
writer. Mr. Carr has done what couhl bs done

There ls another "small tempest In a teapot"
regarding ths reproduction of nude male figures,
and this time Kenyon Cox, Um artist, ls thc suf?

of the decorations In thc facade of tbs new t-ulld

This decoration ls a small seal made from a deiign
by Mr. Cox. The seal bears the Inscription: "The
Trustees of the Public Library of thc etty of Hos
ton, lSSH-t^TS." lt ls not this inscription that the
Council object to, but they might Just na well, to*
lt ls about as indecent as thc design which theie
wordi surround. The design repres*nts two nude
boys?"genir they are .ailed by iculpiori. TlnM
boys are represented .is holding torches in their
hands, ami are placed on the ris'ht and left of a
Renaissance shield, upon which ls an open book.
representing "The Hook of Knowledge." llehlnd
them la "The Tree of Knowledge." and at their

has been darkly hinted that th-' lloston Common
Council resented the Introduction of dolphins, willoh
arc deadly enemies of the mackerel, In the catching
of which many of Boston's most prominent sea?
faring citizens are engaged. Augustus ft, ilaub na

"All this cornel from that rhllculous affair about

and a book plate from S sketch originally made by
Mr. Mt. (laudens. and worked lund over it Then hi
made the decoration. The boys represented ari
about seven years old, and the design ls Inoffensive
tn every way. These Boston people object to thi
nude figures of little boys, bet never do they object to
nudity of female flgurei. n does not bother roi
much, but I must say that there ls no other place
In the world where there would be any iuch non?
sense In Europe they have many such flgurei on
coins ind on windows In churches. The trustees of

shocked. 'Hont aolt oul mal y pense," " said MS.
