Somo District patriots in the gallcrlej hissed Mr. McCreary. Tho speaker declared with much emphasis that If demonstrations In tho galleries did not ccaso they would bo cleared as clear as though a Senate executive session had settled down upon tho House. The demonstrations ceased. Mr. Candler (Massachusetts) thought the Senate was right, and ho Is right; tho Senate Is right.

The man selected is to como out for tho "fundamental princlplo" but repu diate tho Bennett law as it now stands and favor its repeal. The party cry is to be, "Let everybody havo a etiauce to learn tho English languago." Angus Cameron of La Crosse is said to be the man chosen to make tho race, and re port has it that this was the reason he resigned tho chairmanship of tho Cher okee Commission rocontly.

Bishop McGolrlck of Duluth, speaking of tho new Bennett law In Wisconsin, says: "I think tho children of foreigners should bo taught to speak tho English languago abova all others. Not that I am opposed to instruction in any other tongues, but English should tako prece dence. Tho children need this languago In every -day life. Wo should makothem good citizens first and teach them ac complishments afterward. Tho objec tion which I have to tho law Is that It would compel a child to attend tho school which might bo nearest it, thus preventing children from going to boarding or private schools which thoy might picfor.

Ho Keeps Ills I'romlno to Tnlk to the I'eople Through the Columns of the I'reas The Wnrfuro Will He Waged Unrelentingly. London, Apiil 18. Thorccont prom ise innilc by Prluco Bismarck thnt ho would from timo to tlmo mako pub!!c his opinions on political topics through tho columns of tho ptess, is manifestly being kept in a manner cntholy unex pected by tbore who havo set their frnxs aunln6t him. Tho obvious slap nt the cx-Chnncellor mode by General onCaprlvlIn his announcement thit the government would from that tlmo foilh dlscountcnanco what had been known as inspired journalism, apparently epfrcd Bismarck to find moans to bellltlo and upset tho calcula tions of his successor. Ills first opportunity was not long delayed. Al though the ex-Chancellor had had ample tlmo in which to publicly ac knowledge receipt of tho flood of con gratulatory messages, which poured Into hlra on tho occasion of tho annl vcrsaty of his birthday, and still more tlmo In which to respond to tho sympa thetic communications cllcltsd from his f 1 lends by his resignation from tho Cbancclloiahlp, ho choso to nwalt tho ovilval of a tlmo peculiarly suited to his purposes. Ho hod not long to wait. On tho vciyday that tho new Chancellor de livered his maiden speech In tho Land li and I he newspapers wero filled with his remarks und comments thereon, Flint 3 Bismarck launched upon tho public sea, through tho medium of the North Go-man Gazette, for many years his personal oman, aletter of thanks to his ft lends. To say that tho appear once of this letter simultaneously with tho new Chancellor's speech created a EcnEatlon as its slguldcanco be camo apparent, is to stato tho fact with extreme mildness, and the erltn old statesman must have been do lighted at the success of his first effort to take tho wind out of tho sails of the new craft. Everybody talked about the letter and few about tho speech. No body talks of tho speech now, but the letter Is siill the leading subject of com ment, together with tho fact that tho old Chancellor's congiatulatlons wcro conspicuously absent from tho budget of complimentary allusions to tho now Cbaccollor's sddress. Although Count Ilerbart Bismarck is icditcd wltli tho instigation nnd per-5 l ,uui imcciiou or mo campaign ngalnst 1I10 Government's attitude on tho sub ject of insphed journalism oiganlzsd by tbo lending jourou's, which havo hitherto enjoyed governmental favor, it h almost nb:olutely certain that tho movement is controlled by n stronger hand than h'", a guarantee that tho wafaro -will bo waged unrelentingly.

Specials from Albany, Lockport and other points on the New York Central Railroad stato that the threatened general striko of em ployes of the road seems to bo Imminent. The chief grlovance Is said to be against General Superintendent Voor lit'cs, who Is accused by tho men of unnecessarily discharging men, re ducing wages and lengthening hours of work.

"A SELFISI1 POLTROON," "THE STUFFED PROPHET OF WIL LIAM STREET," hA Covrnrdly Liar," 1.TI10 Ilntr Drnnken Deputy Sliertrr," nnd Other Epttheta Aiipllsil to Mr, Cleveland lij- tlio Sun," New Yoiuc, April 18. The San this morning says editorially: Tho Stuffed Prophet of William street, in n rago of wounded vanity, is thus reported: "There Is only ono thing," Mr. Clovclond resumed, nnd a tender expression lit up hlsfaco, "that I caro anything about In theso attacks; they are not confined to mysolf. It seems thnt tho scnllo Dann does not confine his warfnro to men. Women arc not freo from his dastardly assaults. Mrs. Cleveland has not escaped. It is bad enough for Dnua to print his lying statements regarding myself, but It la Infinitely more cowardly and dastardly for him to include, as ho has done, my wifo In his attacks. Nothing could bo more contemptible, or so far removed from all instincts of manhood." To no habitual leader of tho Sun I It necessary to say that thh is a cow ardly Ho. It is not the less a lie because It Is uttered by a man who has boon President of the United States. It Its not less cowardly because it proceeds from a husband whoso Inferiority In social, moral and intellectual qualities is recognized by all who know tho ad mirable woman linked to him by the namo they bear In common. Passing over tho blackguard epithets in which tho half-drunken deputy sheriff reappears, nnd finds his only poa slble retort, we como to this more serious matter. To provoke sympathy for himself, Mr. Cleveland deliberately drags tho namo of his wife Into an Interview In tended for publication, charging tho Sun with an offenso which, If the chargo is true, ought to render this newtpapcr odious to every gentleman on Manhattan Island, to every honor dblo man who respects womanhood. Tho chargo Is false, and Mr. Cleveland knew It was falso wheu ho uttered it. There Is but ono answer that we care to make. Wo Invite Mr. Cleveland to point to a lino or a word that over appeared in tho Sun concerning tho good woman whose nDme he thus degrades, which Justifies, directly or indirectly, tho statement con tained in tho paragraph quoted above. If he cannot do that and ho cannot, wo Invite the attention of the community to tho portrait of a selfish poltroon, an unworthy husband, about whose con duct in tills affair nothing can bo wild uy any person 01 sensitive- perceptions that will not leave on the coarse and Kwollen face peeping from bohind tho fdeo of his wife'B garments, a red mark like the Btlng of n whip lash.
