FItESII FOREIGN NOTES.
The custom is growing In England of giv
ing entertainments in public picture gal
leries Though somewhat startling, it is to
be commended, as if one's guests feel
Vircd the can survey the walls and im
pro e their minds.
A curious social dilemma confronts Sir
Ilenry Irving. There is an official ban on
his profession, and hldtr.mic artists arc
not eligible for court leees Irvlng's son,
II. ft. Irving, has lately deserted the bar
for the stage, and his name has been wiped
off the court chamberlain's list. As a
barrister he always received court imi
tations. Irving, because be has been
knighted, circumvents this official ban
and, or course, is niw persona, grata at
court. It isa family see-saw.
There is a diverting discussion, con
ducted with the greatest gravity, In the
Faris press about the conduct of the -Due
d'Orleans at tile Due d'Aosta's wedding.
Borne Orleanlsts have reproached the
duke with the itiquette he adopted at the
wedding meal. He ate at a separate
table with a few friends, the rest of the
company being relegated to an adjoining
room. He had nineteen courses and the
adjoining room bad only fifteen. He
gave his few friends rose sorbet and the
adjoining room had noue. Bo the Orleanlst
cause is threatened with disruption, all
on account of the rose sorbet. Evidently
some royalists In France are epicures
first and Orleanlsts afterwards The idea
or u political party being endangered by
a dispute about rose sorbet could only arise
in a nation so signally destitute of cer
tain kinds of humor as the French.
There has been a prodigious hurly
burly about -certain presentations at the
recent drawing room, some of which are
understood' to have been privately can
celed. When there are upward of 800 pre
sentations in a season it Is no wonder that
"mistakes" should occur, but in these
days it Is no sort of advantage to go to
court nor is a particle of distinction gained
by doing so. The idea that anything is now
achieved by attendance at either a levee
or a drawing-room can only linger In
tho minds of eery credulous person or
amoug those who. are entirely unso
phisticated. No inquiries of any sort or
kind are now made by the court officials
respecting the horde of unknown whose
names are sent In before every drawing
room or levee. The person who undertakes
tho presentation Is held responsible if any
"mistake" occurs and, as a rule, such of
fenders are forbidden to appear at court
for a year or two, while in flagrant cases
they are permanently excluded.
The final proceedings of the late parlia
ment led to some lively Incidents In the
House of Lords. As there are no rules of
procedure in that assembly any peer says
what he pleases whenever he chooses.
The Duke of Argyll made an onslaught
on Lord Itosebery , who happened to be ab
sent. Next day Lord' Kosebery reap
peared and told the Duke of Argyll that
he cared no more for the ducal hostility
than the life guardsman in the anecdote
cared for his diminutive wife's personal
violence1-''!! pleases her and don't hurt I.""
After this the Duke of Argyll made an
other speech, consisting mainly, as Lord
Kosebery suggested, of matter left over
from the previous harangue. Tho duke
was very aDgry with the Liberal party nnd
said they ought to be called the "Bllpperal"
party. Lord Kosebery asked lr this were
English and the duke retorted that It was
good enongh English for the purpose. Al
together the scene was of a kind which
rarely occurs even in'tho liveliest moments
of the House of Commons.

Exiles Deny All Knowledge of the
Latest Alleged Conspiracy,.
Volncy Ashford, tbo Heported Leader,
Declared tlio Story to Bo Ridicu
lous and Denounces Morrow.
Ban Francisco, Aug. C Tho Chronicle
this morning adds n'uoUier chapter of nine
columns to its Hawaiian filibustering
story of yesterday, giving further details
of tbo alleged plot. Charles Crelghton,
who was assistant attorney general under
tbo monarchy in Hawaii, said.
"I am ono of the exiles, and I would,
know If any such-scheme-as that detected
by tho man who calls himself Morrow
bad the sanction of Hawailans opposed
to tho Dole government. I never heard of
Crelghton said that the deslro for rev
olution Is expressed only by those who are
aggrieved at the Dole government, and
those who hope it the uprising should be
successful to profit financially.
"Exiles here," he said, "are amused
ac most of the stories about filibustering
Yoloey Ashford, who was named as the
man to lead the expedition, said:
"If I was to be the leader. It is not likely
that I would say so, and If I was not con
cerned in this movement, it would be hardly
worth while tor me to talk about It. There
has been so littlo in the stories about fili
bustering expeditions, which have ap
peared in the last three months, that I
suppose this one will turn out to be like
all tbo rest. None of the filibustering
expeditions which havo been written
about for months, have materialized."
Over the signature of Consul General
Wilder the Examiner prints the following:
"The story Is ridiculous, and so far as I
have been able to ascertain, is absolutely
without foundation. I never heard of
Morrow before, nor of his alleged scheme
to organize a filibustering expedition to
overthrow tho Dole government. Fur
thermore, I take no stock in it.
"As a matter of fact, I am Inclined to
think that Morrow is simply a confidence
man who has hit upon this expedient as a
clever way of making a row dollars. He
was to collect $16 from each of the 200
or more adventurers, and that would have
been the last ever heard of this so-called
daring plan to re-establish a monarchy
on the islands .If this man Morrow had
been n bona fide agent for the conspira
tors he would not have given away so
many particulars to people .who applied
to him and offered their services. Men
who engage la such affairs generally want
to do paid in advance themselves rather
than be required to put up a deposit. Then
the idea that 200 men could go over and
capture the Islands Is in Itself prepos
terous. Why, the Dole government can
turn out 2,000 well-drilled and thoroughly
equipped men Inside of fifteen minutes at
any time. No, there's nothing In the story.
If there was I think I would have known
something about It."
Her LI to Not One Honeymoon.
From a country town comes the story of
a girl who bus lost by death three men
to whom -she was successively engaged.
In tbe first instance the youth to whom
she had been betrothed for a year and a
half expired on the very eve of the wed
ding. In tbe second , another young man,
totwhoni she had been engaged soon after
tbe melancholy event, died a few Am rut-
fore the marriage, aud his successor inn
her affections has now shared a similar
fate. It seems that sundry ancient females
of tbe neighborhood, attributing this series
of calamities to the fact that the young
Tvoman has the "evil eyes," hare calmly
suggested that the only remedy Is to be
found in hnrninr her aIIva On that mt
she need have no fear, of course, bit the (

general opinion Is that her chances of
meeting with a fourth suitor are now in

"The Christ Standing Among Us Un

Case's discourse at Grace M. E. Church
Mr. Case spoke of John the Baptist as
the forerunner of Christ, and said that
the chief priests aud scribes, the great
council of the nation, sent a deputation to
him to inquire who he was and whether
he professed to be the Messiah.
"To these questions." said the speaker,
"John answered that he was not Christ,
but one sent before to prepare the way
and to direct the people to Him.
"Notwithstanding the light the people
had when Christ appeared, and though He
exactly answered the descriptions given
by the prophets, they knew Him not. As
stated In the text. He was in the midst of
His people and was unknown.

remarks yesterday, in the course of his ser

"This event," he said, "leads me this

Moses as having died within sight of the
land or Canaan, and withoutbaving realized
his hopes an dexpcctatlons of arriving with

. The pulpit at the Church of the Covenant
was occupied last evening by Rev. John O.
Mcintosh, D.D , or Philadelphia, who based
his discourse upon tbe nearness of the rela
tions between Abraham and Lot.
Tho speaker described the happiness de
rived by Abraham from bis privilege of con
versing with the angels, and said:
"When tbe crisis camo Abraham was

by Lot, God provided for him. Abraham

Mental Bread on tbe "Waters.
A workman near Lewis ton. Me., the
other day, found a tin can with a copy of
"Paradise Lost" sealed up in it. It created
great curiosity among the peop'e along
the river front, until soma one explained
that In a certain town np river lived an
old tinsmith of n literary turn, of mind, who,
each year, solders up books in cans and
throws them into the river, with the hope
that they will float out to the people in the
island! or be picked up by rallors , and from
their peculiar way of reaching them will
be read with curiosity and do soma good.
