. ring Lifted I'u An Imprisoned M. p.
with the Itch Danfer of Knowing- Too
Much la Austria No Anglo-German Al
liance. LoKDOit, Aug. SO. England is still anx
iously awaiting tbe queen's decision in the
case of Mrs. Maybrick, who is under sen
tence of death at Liyerpool and has but one
more week to live unless her majesty shall
interpose a reprieve or pardon. Sunday
night an official, w hose predictions are usu
ally accepted without question, asserted tbat
a full pardon would be Issued by the queen
yesterday, but up to a late hour last night
no decision had been announced. Though
the rase has been laid before her majesty
with tba recommendation of Home Secre
retary Matthews tbat royal clemency be
granted, petitions are still being circulated
and sent direct to the queen in hopes tbat
they may at tbe last moment turn the scale
in favor of the condemned woman. Tba de
lay in reaching a conclusion ia considered
favorable to Mrs. Maybrick. It is thought
the queen is endeavoring to frame a pardon
in such terms as to save the woman's life
without undue reflection on Judge Stephen,
the Chaplain la for Mercy.
The opinion of Chaplain Wynne, of the
Liyerpool prisou, will doubtless have great
weight with the queen, as he was formerly a
tutor in tbo family of tlie Prince of Wales,
and is regarded as an exemplary man, upon
whose judgment the utmost reliance may be
placed. Mr. Wj0na was fully conrC-ed of
Mrs. Maybrick's guilt, and in his rapacity of
spiritual advjser earnestly besought her to
make an unreserved confession of her sup
posed crime. Denials were expected, for they
are usually made even by tbe blackest crimi
nals until all hope of mercy is gone, but
w hen she related circumstances wbich under
the laws of England could not be admitted
in evidence at the trial, the chaplain's belief
underwent a complete change, and he baa
since been one of the most earnest advocates
of mercy. As a mere question of humanity
the impression prevails that the queen's de
cision must be made known to-day at the
latest to end Mrs. Maytirick's sulTerings if
a pardon is to be granted, or if the sentence
of death is to be executed next Monday, to
give her an opportunity to prepare for the
DOCK LABORERS' PARADE.
Red Herrings and Stale Bread a Feature
of the Demonstration
Lonoox Aug. 30. Ten thousand striking
dock laborers paraded tbe streets of London
yesterday, marching from their homes in tbe
East Euu under the leadership of tbe Socialist
agitators Burns an 1 Champion. Tbey car
ried no banners, but the bare poles decorated
with strings of red herrings and crusts of
stale bread were far more eloquent of the
distress and suffering they m isbed the well-to-do
of London to note.
The demonstration passed off without the
slightest disturbance, although early in the
day a rumor that tbe police would in ten ere
with the procession caused many angry ut
terances of defiance and threats of violence.
Tbe police, however, did not interfere and
disclaim any such intention, and the affair
assed off very quietly, the strikers at the
conclusion of their parade peacefully dis
banding and going to their homes.

care what other papers say of Chicago, and
in fact says bitterer things itself about this
city than outside papers. But really it
ought, you know, to be careful about
twitting the southrons just at this time when
we want the vote of eTery southern con
