THE PEENCH CABINET.
Official Statement Showing a Liberal Tend
ency to Eeform.
PARIS, March. IS. The statement, read
in the senate and chamber of deputies to
day shows that the synopsis given out yes
terday did not fully cover it. It says that
the government will vigorously defend re
publican institutions and the entire demo
cratic work of its predecessors. It appeals
cordially to aji sections of the Republican
party. Its object will le to effect a union
of all the Republican forces and exclude
Continuing, the statement says: "We
live in a time of social transformation
when the condition of workingmen is the
just object of special consideration. Our
jirst duty is to turn to the toiling people
and assist iii improving their position. No
government, especially that of a republic,
can escape this duty. We shall .shortly
propose laws, the purpose of which will
be to secure progressive improvement
of rJie condition of the laboring classes and
imperially with u view to their making
suitable provisions for old age. The aim
will be government in the meaning of the
word. The government has not only to
enforce the law at home, but secure to
Franco the respect due to her abroad. Such
a government we can be if your confidence
The reading of the statement was greeted
ith applause in both the senate and

a fre arid tolerant republic.

Bfrlin, March IS. The emperor has not
et decided whether he will accept Prince
Bismarck's resignation, but it is believed
in official circles that his majesty will give
a final decision today. Some of the morn
ing papers affirm tlmt the emperor yester
day informed Prince Bismarck that he
would n)t insist upon his remaining in
jtfiice if it was his desire to retire to private
life It is stated today in well informed
Jiolitical circles that the present difference
between the emperor and Prince
HiMiiarck is irreconcilable. Ir
arises from the chancellor's refusal
to accede to a request made by Br. Wiud
thorst, the leader of the clerical party in
Germany, to restore to the Duke of Cum
berland, the claimant of the throne of
Hanover, the larger portion of the Guelpli
fund. The report is repeated today that
the emperor proposes to appoint General
Yon Caprivi, who is now commander of
the tenth army corps, to the chancellor
he emperor continues to withhold his
formal acceptance of Prince Bismarck's
resignation. His reason for not accepting
it is that the constitution does not admit
of interretmum in the tenure of the
chancellor-hip, and as the choice of
a successor to Prince Bismarck is
besot with difficulties., his nut jest v
defers his acceptance until he finnllvde
i ides whom he shall appoint as chancellor.

LIEUT. STEEL'S COURTMARTIAL.
Chicago,. 111, March IS. The court
martial of Lieutenant Steel, of the Eighth
United States cavalry, assembled in Bat
tery D armory at noon and after formally
organizing proceeded to hear the testi
mony' of Private Bell' P. "WIM, the com
plaining witness. Thecorroborating wit
ness was Corporal Hiram Spott, Fifth
teenth United States infantry. The story,
as told by the witnesses, was to the effect
that Lieutenant Steel ordered Private
"Wild to assist him in some work about a
building for his (Steel's) private use; that
Wild refused to obey the order on the
ground that he had not enlisted in the
capacity of private servant; that Steel
struck him and subsequently catised him
to be courtmartialed and sentenced to
two year's imprisonment with hard labor.
To the charge Lieutenant Steel pleaded
not guilty, not, as his counsel, Lieutenant
Croudersaid, "because we deny the facts
alleged, but in order to facilitate the full
est inquiry into the matter. Our defense
will be that whatever was done was an act
necessary for the maintainance of good
discipline and the good of the sen-ice."
The court was then adjourned until to
morrow morning, when the defense will
present its arguments.

In many parts of Missouri "wheat has
been badly winter-killed. Our correspond

Kentucky makes the best recoid so far
of any state in the winter wheat belt.
Some damage from the cold wave is re

counties, but the general average condi

Our reports indicate that Kansas wheat
fields are in a very fair condition, compar

moved to the jcounty hospital, where she
died last evening without having recoered
consciousness. Hercalp was badly cut
and there was a fracture at the base of the
skull. There were also bruises on her
arms. It has been learned that the unfor
tunate woman was Mrs. Jennie Bingham,
formerly of Milwaukee, but known in Chi
cago as Mrs. Jennie Taylor. She has been
living in this city Avith a m;in named Zach
Taylor, a'n engineer. He claims that she

usual, for Taylor. She had but a few
blocks to walk. Four hours later she was

A MUSHSliNS ROMANCE.
W&w a Dlplaajfctl Yoaas: "Stan Secured a
Start in Ufo as a Teacher.
"Diplomacy is&great qBalrey,,,aui a friend
who formerly . lived in a very small Ohio
town. "A man can do nearly everything by
the proper nee of diplomacy except to rob a
bank. I was just reading something about a
volunteer organist that .set me thinking about
a neat little bit of diplomacy that lifted a
good man frotn- misfortune's ditch and put
him in the way of doing something for him
self. He w&a a musician with a small
traveling show which came along and went
to pieces in our town. The other people of
tha company got out of town by hook or
crook, but this poor fellow couldn't make it.
He got acquainted with several young fellowi
of the town, however, and to one of these he
confided that he would make a living by
teacbmjj music if he could only get a start.
"The young fellow asked him what he could
play, and he said he could play all the kinds
of horns in a band, the banjo, guitar, zither,
violin, flute, piano and organ in fact La
could play any kind of musical instrument
"Then an idea strnck him, and he asked
what kind of organists they had in the two
churches. The young fellow said they were
pretty good; his sister was one of them.
Thereupon a scheme formed itself in tha
musician's mind. He told his friend that if
he could get a chance to play the organ next
Sunday he thought he could surpriBa tha
folks, and maybe pave the way to getting a
foothold as a teacher. He suggested that the
young fellow present the case to his sister and
have her get sick the next Sunday and send a
note of apology, and suggesting himself as
"This was all carried out in proper form,
and when theluue had arrived and the min
ister had apologized for the substitute the
musician seated himself at the little organ
and began. He started off with a voluntary
in a sweet, expressive strain and worked it
up to a nobla burst of music which, in vary
ing phases, swept along and beld the congre
gation enchanted. Nobody had ever sus
pected the poor little organ capable of any
thing half so grand, ad you may be sura
that the musician overlooked no points.
From that time on the church service was
simply an accompaniment to the music, and
when it was finished, and the organ poured
forth another flood of harmony for the con
gregation to retire on, everybody just stood
and listened, and before the stranded musi
cian left the church he knew all the good
people in town and was made a social lion.
"It was easy'enough after that. Being a
man of good address and discretion, and pos
sessing gentlemanly refinement as well, ha
quietly went to work and soon had a lot of
tho best pupils in the town. Then the young
fellows wept after him for banjo and guitar
lessons, and afterward they organised a band
and made him leader. Everything camo his
way, and he married the daughter of one of
the rich men of the town, and. well, he runs
the biggest music store in the place now. All
accomplished by a bit of diplomacy." Chi

Tho misuse of tho word "nee" is a source oi
perpetual tribulation to copy editors, pro
vincial "society reporters" especially being
prone to a mournful disregard of its real
meaning. They have a hazy but ncverthelesj
strong impression that it is equivalent to the
expression "whoso former name was," and
they rarely fail to uso tho full name in all iti
aristocratic completeness. Now, the fact is,
that "nee" i3 simply French for "born," and
although the charming Mrs. De Lancey Jones
may have been "born"' an Edwards, she cer
tainly was not born "iliss Jemima Edwards."
Little things of that sort don't always turn
out just as might be desired, yon know. It
might be really too plebeian for the provincial
"society reporter" to refer to "Mra. Jones,
nee Edwards," but ho might try. And he
certainly should avoid tha error of a rural
contemporary, which recently praistd tho dia
monds of "Mrs. De Lancey Jones, neo Mrs.
"William Smith." How poor Mrs. Jones over
came to be born to a state of widowhood the
reporter neglects to explain. Albany Pre
A Natural Isridgo in Arizona.
Natural bridge, on P.ne creek, in the north
ern part of Glia county, is one of the great
est natural curiosities in tho United States,
equaling, if not surpassing, tha natural
bridge of Virginia. It spans the crek at a
height of about 200 feet, and the walls of tbe
canyon rise above it on either side 700 or 80S
feet, and on ono side form a perpendicular
precipice. The ondge is of limo formation,
and tbo insido of the great arch, which is
some 250 fe&t across, is worn by the water ai
smooth as though chiseled by the skillful
hand of a stonemason. Tho arch on top u
nearly, if not quite, 400 feet in width, lt00C
feet in length acros the canyon, and at tbe
thinnest part only sis feet through. About
the center of tbe arch is a bole large enough
to dnit the body of a man, and tarougb
wbieh on can look down into the crvstaJ
