London. May f). An Intcp-low with Mr.
William 8. Cllne, Unionist member of
Parliament for Barrow-in-Furness, leaves
tbo Impression that bo would like, to declare
himself for Mr, Gladstono and homo rule,
but that ho docs not yet feet ablo to leave
his friends on the other sldo of tho House.
Thcro has been going on quietly within n
short tlmo n rovuMon of feeling among tho
Unionists, generally outsldo tho absolute
leaders of tho party, toward Mr. Gladstono
and tho c:mo tho Grand Old Man so gal
lantly supports. Slnco tho Ulrmlnghatn
light and tho exchange of bitter
letters between Chamberlain and Churchill,
many of tho Unionists whoso Interest
In their party was languid at
best aro about willing to sclzo upon almost
any pretext to get out of tho anomalous
po'ltlonln which they find themselves. Mr.
Craluo Is ono of these, but ho apparently
lacks tho stamina to make tho leap. Ilo
said that It was possible that ho might re
tire, shortly; that ho could not desert his
friends. If many others who find them
selves In tbo same condition as Mr. Craluo
would resign. Gladstoulans feel that this
would open tbo way for their scats to bo
occupied by Home Jtulcrs. A movement Is
on foot now looking to this very object, as
It Is bclloved that before tbo next session
of Parliament tho scats now occupied bv
somo of tho Unionists will bo empty and
ready for contesting.
The statement Is tnado on the best of
authority that Mr. W. H. Smith will not

aslray. Ho went straight to a drop-a-ccnt-lii-thc-slot-and-gct-a-plcoo-of-ehow
In front ot n confectionery storo
on 0 street. Ho had dropped tho bogus
penny In, but It wouldn't work. Just then

fied him that ho had no right to demand

that ho merely wanted tho money left as

Wilson explained that the cent must bo

"Horo's about half of what I'vo taken

a handful of bits of lead from his pocket.
Tho piece that Wlillo used had tho Im
print of a cent mashed Into it, possibly
with tho Idea that this would help to fool
tho machine. This fact would have made
Wlillo llablo for passing counterfeit money.
Tho charge against him was larceny, Jind
ho had a narrow escano from going to Jail.

N'r.w Yohk May .1. Bishop Potter has
been much criticised for hi uso of tho
phrase that "Jcffersnnlnn simplicity means
Jaeksonlan vulgarity" during his centen
nial sermon. In nu Interview yesterday ho
explained tho remark ns follows:
"Vulgarity, as I used It, did not refer to
manners, but to the political atmosphere.
Vulgar means 'common.' Tlio manner of
the peoplo may I mi very high hut the moral
tono very low. Look at some countries In
Europe," and tho Bishop named them.
"Now, jou catch tho Idea. I am no 'mug
wump.' I'vo been n Republican all my
life, but I halo 'taffy' and platitude. Be
sides, thcro wero plenty who were sure to pay
sounding compliment to Mr. Harrison nnd
tha Nation that honors him. I wasn't
needed for that. Apply what I did regard
ing my estimate of tho Presidential nlllco
to tho present situation. How much tlmo
has Harrison given to statesmanship r Not
an hour not an Instant; so fur ns any ono
know. He was put where ho Is lo main
tain tho Nation's dignity, to protect the
rights of the poor and rich, to nile, not to

a spcctaclo wo have. We behold the Presi
dent of the United Stales of America Intent
only ou getting Congressmen out of the
houso at night so that ho can go to bed.
What's tho uso of beating about the bush lu
this matter? It makes mo very tlrod."
"Then you had no thought of assailing
