Xew York, Oct. 17. Rolert T. Lincoln,
United States minister to Knghind. arrived
in this city yesterday morning on the Etru
ria. The steamer arrived ealy Saturday
nt quarantine, but much to the disjrust of
a lnrne number of passengers, was not al
lowed to proceed to her dock until next
niominir. It was 7:30 o'clock when the
dock was reached. As soon as the steamer
made fast Minister Lincoln proceeded down
the gangplank, entered a carriage and was
driven to the Holland house. The first
p;irt of the day Minister Lincoln devoted to
resting after his voyage. During the after
noon he received quite a number of callers,
notable among whom were C. X. Bliss,
General Brook field, Hon. Patrick Kgan,
Chairman Carter, of the Republican, na
tional committee, and Senator Hale.
Some Miscellaneous Observations
Mr. Lincoln is looking well and happy.
He said to a reporter for the United
Press that he was here to spend his reg
ular annual two mouths' leave of absence.
He will remain here but a short time, when
he will report at Washington and then go
to Chicago to be present at the opening of
World's fair. After that his plans have not
yet been arranged. In regard to the com
ments made upon his non-attendance at the
funeral of the late Lord Tennyson, he said
that he was not aware that he had been se
lected as one of the pall-bearers until just
as he was stepping on the train at London
to go aboard the Etruria. Since bis arrival

Mr. Lincoln positivclv declined todiscuss
English politics: "I cannot answer any 1
question or express an v opinion, which re-!
lates to English political matters. My j
olli. ial position deprives me of any freedom
which other persons might properly have, j
There is nothing connected with my official
position that I feel that I can properly j
sjieak aHut except the forthcoming inter- 1
national monetary conference, for which it
has fallen to me to have some share in
arranging." He sa;d that the question
whether England should favor the in
creased use of silver in the currency of the
world is not a party 'jues.ion in. England.
Thinks Silver lias a Cluuice.
"I feel that I may say v.-jthont impropri
ety that there is a reasonable prospect of a
sufficient departure by England from its
hitherto strict monometallic basis to give
great hope of soma practical steps being"!
taken by the congress for the increased use
of silver ami for their adoption by a suf
ficient number of the important powers.
Personally 1 am a believer in bi-inetallism
on some basis to be approved by the con
ference of those best able to consider the
subject, liecause I think that with gold as
a standard the international currency is in
adequate and likely to become more so in
consequence of the action of the Austrian
Hopes for a Practical Issue.
'Iut I should personally deplore an at

of those European nations whose aid is es
sential. Men of great ability are going as
delegates both from the United States and
from Great Britain and no doubt from ;
other countries, but I do not know the
names of the delegates from those coun- j
tries. I can only say that I have great

The Votes or the Irish.
XEW YORK. Oct. 17. Referring to
Blaine's remarks anent the Irish vote in !
his speech at Ophir Farm ex-Mayor Grace
said: "In reply to that, 1 would like to say
that while I like to be us broad as possibls
in my views on international questions, 1
am so thoroughly Irish and anti-English in
every pulsation of my heart that if there
were no other reasons to lx; considered but
that the tariff was against England, I
would favor it. But I fancy that the time
has gone bv when the Republican press, or

Times from Topeka. Kan., says: "The sen
sation of the day in Kansas is the interview
with Mrs. Lease, who hn been accompany
ing General Weaver in his tour through the
southern states. She recites tl.e indignities
they were subjected to and then declares
that if n vote for Weaver is ir. reality a vote
for Cleveland in this state, her desire isthat
the Populists scratch their ticket and vote
for the Harrison electors. Mrs. Lease is.
next to Jerry Simpson, the strongest leader
of the Kansas Popul:.is. She concedes
every southern state to Cleveland and,
therefore, at this late- day indicates her
preference for Harrison."
