London, Jane 24. It is now announced
that the outcome of the" deliberations of
the cabinet in consequence of the adverse
vote in the house of commons on Friday
Is that Lord Rosebery, the prime minister,
has tenderoi his resignation to the
queen. Her majesty has therefore sum
moned Lord Salisbury, tbe leader of tha
Conservative party, to Windsor in con
nection with the formation of a Conserva
tive ministry. The leading Conservatives
declare that the Matquls of Salisbury
will not formally take office until parlia
ment is dissolved. He will insist that
the government, before yielding the seats,
shall pass a vote of an amount necessary
for the expenditures for two months, to
enable a gonoral election to be held.
Decline to Oo oo tha Defensive.
The Conservatives will thus be in a po
sition of attack Instead of defense.
Throughout tho day the situation was
the absorbing topio of the chief political
clubs. Saverol members of the cabinet
called in Downing street In the afternoon
in tho expectation of seeing Lord Rose
bery, who returned from Windsor at 6
o'clock and drove to Downing street,
where an informal cabinet meeting last
ing twenty-Cvo minutes immediately fol
lowed. Ic is understood that the Marquis
" of Salisbury only agrees to form a cabi
net on condition that parliament Is dis
solved. Nothing is known regarding the
personnel of the new ministry, but com
plete barmony exists between the Liberal
Unionists and the Conservatives.
Comments on tha Situation.
Undoubtedly Salisbury is right, from a
political point of view, at any rate, in in
sisting on a dissolution. Still the move
was a shrowd ono on Rosobery's part For
if tho Conservatives declined to take of
fice Rosebery would stay and be in a
stronger position than before he had
been defeated, offered the opposition con
trol of the government, they declined;
therefore they confessed that he had the
real majority as representing the effective
lower house. K a Conservative leader ac
cepted thero is no real doubt that he
would find a majority, even if small,
against him. He could not dissolve par
liament until the supplies had been voted,
and a Liberal majority could prolong the
situation for months.
Irish BZ.mbers Extremely Uneasy.
Tho Irish members are extremely un
easy and dissatisfied. They state, that
niter acting for three years as tbe strong
est arm of the government they are deep
ly conrcrnea ut the sudden end of the
government without passing any of the
principal Irish measures. Not only bns
home rule not progressed but measures con
cerning the Christian Krothers, the coun
ty council bill (which reached n second
reading), the grand jury bill, and the
proposal to extend tho power of guardians
regarding laborers' cottages are all lost.
The only Irish measure now likely to be
passed is ilealy s municipal franchise
bill, which has gone to the house of lords.
Tho Liberal Scotch members are also
sore, their expectations having been dis
appointo.l. Koicbcry Looks Decidedly Sprightly.
Lord S ilisbury did not receive his sum
mons until too late to go to Windsor last
night. Ho went early this moraine.
The rllix t of the cabinet's decision is
more marked upon the whips and officials
than upon the cabinet ministers. Lord
Rosebery, on his return to town, lookoj
decidedly sprightly, and Lord Tweed
mouth, Mr. Morlcy and Sir William liar
court were in a jocular mood.

Omaha, June 24 The Investigation
Into City Treasurer Bolln's shortage has
not been made public, though a week has
passed since It was discovered that he
was $3),000 short. Bolln has not been
dismissed from his office or in any way
disturbed. Ho has secured his bondsmen
for whatever amount they may be re
quired to make up by deeding them ull
his Omaha property. One result ot the
prolonged investigation will be a decrease
in the shortage of several thousand dol

advanced 1 money by Bolln have been
hustling to square their accounts.
One member of the city council had
drawn 91,12 which would be equal to his
pay for twenty-two months, or for six
teen months after Ms term of office had

Whistling Lnnr Unconstitutional.
Omaha, June 24. The supremo court ot
Nebraska has rendered a decision of great
Interest to railroads. There is a law on
the statute books of the state compelling
engineers to whistle at every publlo high
way crossing and on failure to do so the
railroad company is subject to a lino ot
$00, of which half goes to the Informer.
As a consequence there are many in
formants, particularly farmers, who
make it a ousinest to eaten tne engineer.
A man lets it go until he has a number of
cases and then goes to court. The law has
cost the Nebraska railroads several sMall
fortunes, and every sait hitherto has re
sulted in favor of the plaintiff and
against tho railroads. The supreme court
has decide! tbe law unconstitutional.

Louisville, June 24. Generals Hardin
and Clay, the leading candidates for the
gubernatorial nomination at the Damo-
cratlo state convention tomorrow, and
all the other candidate who have
been hero some days, have been joined
by about all of the delegates, among the
latter being Senator Joe Blackburn, who
is working for the chairmanship ot the
committee on resolutions. Congress
man McCroary is here aspiring to the
same chairmanship. Among others men
tioned for the committed on resolutions
are Oliver James, sliver; W. T. Ellis,
silver; John S. Hhca, silver; J. Proctor
Knott, silver; J. Matherton, gold; A. P.
Humphrey, gold; William Lindsay, gold.
The all-absorbing topic is the resolution
on tho silver question. The committee
on resolutions will consist of one member
from each of the eleven congressional
districts and. two mombers-at-large .ap
pointed by the chairman of the conven
Fight for Temporary Organisation.
For this reason there Is more contest
than ever for the temporary organization.
Congressmen W. J. Stono and Albert 8.
Berry are most prominontly montioned
for chairman, but neither the Clay nor
the Hardin men will name their favorites
for chairmen. Although Clay is called
the gold candidate nnd Hardin tbe silver
candidate, yet those lines ore not as
strictly drawn on them as are the lines
of those for and against the administra
tion. Carlisle's private secretary and ap
pointment clerk are here, and they were
followed from Washington by ex-Con-grcssman
Phil B. Thompson, who Is en
thusiastic for Blackburn for chairman
of the committee on resolutions. Aside
from the silver Issue there is a bitter fight
between. tho friends of Secretary Carlisle
and Blackburn, in which Lindsay, Buck

Carlislo, while Governor Brown, ex-Gov

Tha TJnlsstrncted Will Control.
There is almost an endless list ot candi
dates for minor state offices, and they
have had their headquarters open for sev
eral days as early birds. In tho early
skirmishing tbe gold men claimed to
have a majority of the dolegates, but the
arrival ot Senetor Blackburn inspired the
silver men so that they are equally con
fident. There are so many unlnstructed
delegates that it will be impossible to es
timate the strength ot the gold and silver
men before the temporary organization is
mode, and then it will be seen whether
the resolutions are to be for free coinage
or against it. The temporary organiza
tion will also indicate whether Clay or
Hardin controls the convention. The
members of the committees will be se
lected at tho delegation meetings tomor
row morning and reported to the conven
tion at 2 p. m.

secretary of the Democratic society of
Washington state, has been in this city
for the past two or threo weeks making
final arrangements for a tour by Demo

northwestern states this autumn. The
party will consist of from twelve to four
teen persons all told and will be under
the individual direction of Lawrence

gressional committee and national as
sociation of Democratic clubs, who will
leave Washington the 36th of July and
