Parsons' Letter to Ilis Children.
Chicago, Nov. 11. The first anniversary of
the hanging of the Anarchists was observed to
day by the Chicago sympathizers, but not
within the limits of the city. Police regulations
prevented any procession or fiying of red bunt
in?, and there was no outbreak of any kind.
About five thousand people men, women and
children gathered individually at the depot,
and two big trains carried them to Waldheitn
Cemetery. On the way to the cemetery the
crowd resembled asythinc rather than people
bent on a melancholy errand! Joking and
chads ewss the order of the day all the way
out None cf the persons who gained notoriety
through connection with the Anarchist trial
wre present, except Spies'a sister Gretchen
nod the daughters of George KngsL 3Iud
in the country was as effectual as the
police ia the city in operating sgaiust
any procession from the cars to the graves,
and the chilly winds sweeping across the bleak
prairie encircling Waldbeim Cemetery added
to the general discomfort. One thine, however,
was an unqualified success the floral tributes
were of the most elaborate character, and in
cluded contributions from thirteen different
Turner societies. Amonc the flowers blood-red
ribbons were conspicuous, and' the inscriptions
accompanying them were such as: ''For Free
dom and Right;" "To the Pioneers of Truth and
Justice," and To the Martyrs, Onr Thanks.
The . first speech was by Robert Retzel, of
Detroit. Compared with the rantings heard a
year ago on the same spot, bis remarks were
tame. In fact, there was not a single incendiary
phrase in his entire speech. He dropped into
poetry rjuito frequently. He held that a year
ago on the graves of the Anarchists the mourn
ers were at once plaintiffs aod judges. It
was not quite apparent to him how long
the workin? people would be permitted to bury
their dead without the capitalistic power bring
ing? bayonets aod bloodshed among "the graves.
In this manner the speaker held forth for the
better part of balf an boar. Children from the
Socialist Sunday-schools of the eity sane, in
childish mechanical fashion, a hymn in praise of
the 4'3Iartyra When the sound . of the chil
dren's voices had ceased, the chairman. George
Schilling, proceeded to that wbioh was to be the
center of attraction and attention, a letter from
Albert R. Parsons to his children, addressed to
them with a request that it should not be opened
or read until the first anniversary of bis execu
tion, Perfect quiet came ever the assembly as
the letter was read, as follows:
'Dc.vaiox No. 7, Cook County Jail, 1
Chicago, Nor. -t, 187. j
"My Dsrlinc, Precious Little Children. Albert
R. Parsons, jr., and his Sister Lulu Ida Par
sonsAs 1 write this word, I blot your names
with a tear. We never meet again. Oh, mv chil
dren, how deeply, dearly your father loves you!
We show our love by lit mg for our loved ones.
We also prove our love by dying, when neces
sary, for tbem. Of my life and the cause of my
unnatural and eruel death you will learn from

My children, my precious ones, I request yon
to read this parting message on each recurring
anniversary of my death, in remembrance of
him who dies not alone for yon, but forthe chil
dren yet unborn. Bless you, my darlings. Fare
well! Your father,
"Albert R. Parsons.
The letter was something of a dissppolntment
to the listeners. There was no approach to any
of the usual catch-wcrds of the revolutionists.
It was too plain and father-like. Hence, the
effect was not notabls. It was simply one of
aadne s that spread over the assembly, to be
soon dispelled, however, by the opening words
of the speech which followed. The speaker,
William Holm, an old friend of Parsons,
struck a chord that had not vibrated for a locg
time. "Friends and comrades," be began, with
an animation that sounded like old times on the
lake front, when the group were out in force
aod the harangues were all cf the "coming
revolution.'' The effeet on the crowd was in
stantaneous. They all pricked up their ears
and listened eagerly, bat they were again
doomed to disappointment The speaker was
moderate in his remarks until the peroration
was reached. Something more was evidently
necessary to round cut the speech with, and
after comparing "the movement for the emsnci-
Eation of labor" to all sorts of shining objects,
e wound up by saying that it would "flame like
the fire in the barricades of the city streets. The
expression caught the audience. Half of them
did cot understand a line of the speech, or the
meaning cf the last sentence, bat the suggestion
of force in the words "barricade' and "fire"
aroused a burst of applause. The speaker urgsd
all present to pat their shoulders to the wheel
and help accomplish the work for which the fire
martyrs" had died.
Jostph Labadie, a Michigan Anarchist.who was
to driver the principal speech of the day, failed
to pus In an appearance. There was much talk
of war, and soldiers, acd glory in the latt
speech, which was delivered by Paul Grottkau,
an editor of several German socialist papers.
His principal theme- was the "imallocss or the
working classes that had allowed the Aoarehists
to bo "xnnrdered." The "hypocrisy and tyranny
of the roling classes1' was oca oi bis favorite
terms. The nroper way to honor the dead men,
be said, was to lead to a successful issue the
movement which they had died for.
A chorus of three hundred male voleea eon
eluded the programme in a dirge-like song that
ferrned ft fitting, conclusion to ths ceremonies.

The Next Reapportionment and How It Will
Affsct the South and the Northwest,
fpecial tu the IndUanaoolls Journal
Washington, Nor. 11. There Is one feature
of the victory at the polls last week which does
not seem to have fully dawned yet upon the
minds of the actors, but which is being discussed
with a great deal of concern by some of the
Democrats of the South. That is, that the con
trol of the two houses of Congress will give the
Republican party the control also of the appor
tionment under the eleventh census. The
eleventh census will be taken in June, 1890, and
the respportionment of Congressional represen
tation will follow daring the session of Congress
succeeding. Ths suppression of tht colored
vote in the South will certainly lead to a cur
tailment of the comber of Representatives in
that section acd a corresponding increase in the
representation of some of the Western States,
notably Nebraska, Kansas and Minnesota, wbioh
aro naturally Republican. This, together with
the admission of four new States, with at least
twelve electoral votes, in 1S92, will change
the status of the next campaign to a con
siderable degree and will be likely to have
a marked effect in maintaining the ascendency
of the Republican dynasty. Southern men pro
fess to believe that their section will lose at
least ten electoral votes in the new apportion
ment, which will, they naturally infer, oe added
to the strength of the Republican States of the
Northwest. If this is done, and the new States
admitted prove to be Republican in sentiment,
there is reason to believe that the solicitude of
the Southern Democrats is well founded, and
the some, at least, of the elements of un
certainty will be removed from the next grand
Republican success this year alto means that
the control of ths United States Supreme Court
is no longer iu danger of passing out of the
hands of the Republican party. President Har
rison will, in all probability, have the appoint
ment of four, and possibly five, associate justices
doring his term, and that will insure the control
of the highest court in the country for a genera
tion, unless th mortality among the members
of the court is much higher than it has ever
been before. On the whole, therefore, the Re
publican party bas inereasiog causes to con
gratulate Itself, as the significance of last Tues
day's victory becomes apparent
Edward Mcl'herson Indicates Some of the
Issues with Which It Will Deal.
Washlncton special to .New York Tribune,
Probably General Harrison will have more or
less to say about the composition of his Cabinet,
and as he has cot yet had any time to give
to that matter, the gossip and speculation
which assign this or that prominent and de
serving Republican leader to that or the othar
Cabinet portfolio may be a trifle premature; the
Preaident-elect will have nearly four months in
which to canvass the field, listen to suggestions
and advice more or less disinterested, and care
fully weigh the merits and qualifications of the
party leaders. General Harrison's friends know
that be is a man of great firmness and decision
of character, although he lacks that sort of
obstinacy which springs from ignorance of pub
lic men and events, and during the campaign he
has shown remarkable self-poise and surprising
keenness of vision in a political sense. It is
fair to assume, therefore, that he will have a
great deal to say about the composition of bis
Cabinet, acd whea ho has performed his duty
in that regard it is probable that a large number
of active amateur and volunteer Cabinet-makers
will be disappointed.
There is no reA3on to expsct that he will come
into office bearing a policy" to be enforced upon
.Con gre es in opposition to the views of bis party,
as some of the friends of ths retiring adminis
tration already seem to hope, if cot to expect
Speaking of some of the salient public ques
tions which will invite the attention of the in
coming President and Congress, that venerable
and acute political observer, Edward 3IcPh ar
son, to-day said:
'Well, 1 assume that the Ropubiicau party,
through its executive and it3 majority in Con
gress, will redeem its pledges in the future as it
has In the past The party stands committed to
a revision of the revenue laws and a reductlon'of
taxation. That was the main issue upon which
the battle was fought, and our great victory
won." ,
"Do you look for a revision of the customs
and Internal revenue laws at the coming session
of ConeressP
"That will dpen4, of course, upon whether
President Cleveland and the Democratic majori
ty in the Hoose accept tba verdict of the Amer
ican people as recorded on Tuesday. I observe
a tendency among the Democratic leaders to de
clare in favor of calling their colors to the mast
nod continuing to fight for free-trade tariff re
form, and it is intimated that in his forthcom
ing annual message President Cleveland will
adhere to the propositions he laid down last
December and upon which be and bis party
have been defeated at the ballot-box. If that
be the attitude of the President acd the House,
of course, the oountry will be compelled to wait
until the obstructionists surrender the power
which they have attempted to ase to the detri
ment of the American people. If Mr. Cleveland
is as honest and brave as his partisans de
clare him to be he wil not retreat, If Carlisle,
Mills, Scott and their adherents are as sincere
as they profess to be they will maintain their
hostility to the American system cf protection
to the last day, or at least until they land in the
last ditch. You remember that the Southern
leaders io both Houses warned the Republicans
and the friends of protection to American in
dustries generally that, unless the should ac
cept the compromise the 'moderate scheme of
retorm embodied in the so-called Mills bill
they would be compelled to swallow the bitterer
doie. Of course, that threat of the late solid
South sounds bombastic and silly cow, and I
shall wait with cousiderable curiosity to see
whether it will be repeated after Congress re
assembles in December."
"Do you think the Senate will pass the sub
stitute for the Uunse bill?"
Yes; that is my impression. Of course, it
will be likely to undergo some modification.
Some rates of dnty may be increased and some
diminished, as new facts or more thorough in
formation shall indicate the wisdom of changes.
The people have decided that any revision of the
tariff must be on protective lines, and that the
richest market in the wotld shall cot become the
prey of foreigners, whose sole advantage ovsr
our own people is gained by the oppression of
labor of every description, skilled and unskilled.
The people have decided, also, that no revision of
the tariff on sectional lines would be wise or
just The Northern and Western farmer and
artisan are eotitied to equal consideration with
Southern cotton or suear-plaoters or the South
ern net-growers. The Seoata substitute,
I believe, fairly embodies the ideas of
tariff and internal revenue legislation
whteh are approved by a vait majority
of the American people at the present time. Bat
as I said bsfore, if the President and the ma
jority in the house which did his blading at the
last session adhere to their former attitude, we
all be compelled to wail until the Republicans
titans control. HiUy0 the country, tad
President and Congress will then be in hearty
acecrd and American interests will be sale
in their hands. w
Do you think it probable that President Har
rison will call a special session of tba Fifty-first
Congress in case no revenue legislation is
enacted next winterP
"No one can foretell what emergency might
arise to make a special session necessary, but it
is certain to at none will be called unless abso
lutely necessary. The question of the surplus
does cot seem to be so pressing now as it
appeared to be to President Cleve
land when he sent that 'scaro message to Con
gress eleven months ago. The administration
seems to have made way with the bulk of the
surplus by means of liberal, cot to say ex
travagant, expenditures and by. placing a big
percentage of it on deposit, so that it could cot
be suddeoly withdrawn without producme a
disastrous monetary disturbance. The new ad
ministration will not be likely to ignore the fact
that the surplus revenues can be profitably used
to reduce the interest-bearing debt, or the other
f act that within lees than three years more than
$200,000,000 of the interest-bearing debt will be
due acd payable at par. There will be co crgect
reason so far as financial legislation is con
cerned why Congress should assemble before
December, 18S9.
"It is true, however, that speedy measures
should be taken to remedy defects lr the tariff
law which operate to the serious detriment of
certain domestio industries, sueb, f oi example,
as woolen and silk manufactures. Something
easy be done by a revisalof several treasury de
cisions of the present free-trade administration,
but a fall measure of relief will require legis
lative interposition. If the present House were
both wis and patriotic, that relief might b
found in a short specific measure, leaving the
broader questions of revision aod readjustment
to be dealt with hereafter. Such a measure, I
believe, President Cleveland would not dare to
veto. But I coLfess that I have no hope that
the free-traders who rule the House will conseot
to act with wisdom or patriotism in that behalf.
They are too badly disappointed aod angry un
der the stinging rebuke which, they have re
ceived.11 "Wbr.t other public measures besides revenue
legislation will be likely to take a prominent
place in the first half of President Harrison's
"Oh, there aro soveral. One is the admission
into the Union of Territories which have been
kept out by the Democrats for partisan reasons.
That party's treatment of the people of Dakota
and Washington, bas been outrageous. Dakota
will make two States, either one of which will
at once rank in population, wealth and intelli
gence with some of the older States, and be ia
advance cf at least one State which is cow rep
ree entfd io the wars and means committee of
the House of Representatives. Two years ago
Dakota cast 09,061 votes to elect a Delegate in
Con cress, who is cot allowed a vote in that
body. Ia Arksnsa. which a has five
votes in the House of Representatives and one
vote in the ways and means eommittee, only
44,514 votes were cast for Congressmen. In
Georgia, which has ten votes in the House and
one in the ways acd means committee, only
27,43j votes were cast for Congressmen. In the
thirty-three countieb which compose what is
styled North Dakota, 2(1,000 votes were cast,
8.500 more than in Georgia, and only 8,000 less
than in Arkansas, while in the fortf-eevsn
counties composing South Dakota the total vote
was 63,040. nearly 20.0C0 more than io Arkansas,
and 35,000 more than In Georgia. In Washing
ton Territory th total vote exceeded 47,000.
As chairman cf the eommittee on Territories of
the Senate General Harrison became thoroughly
informed in regard ti the merits of the claims of
Washington and Dakota for admission into the
Union, and I thick it very probable that among
the most earnest recommendations in his first
message to Congresa will be one in their behalf."
"Do you thick it probable that be will recom
mend the granting of aid from the national
treasury toward the eurport of common schools,
especially in the Souths
"Well, J have no donbt that be would approve
a bill for that purpose if It should bt sent to
him by Congress. Whether he will recommend
it in his message is another matter. While &
Senator, he favored the measure, and I do not
belisve his views on that subject have under
gone any change. I sincerely hope it will be
made an administration measure, both as an act
of justice and necessity. ' The colored men of
the Sou'h have been enfranchised, and I be
lieve that it is a duty which the Nation owes
itself as , well as to them to aid in educating
thera r;ht they may make an intelligent use
of tre irancOee."
'Of eourse," continued Mr. McPherson, "there
are many other important questions te be con
sidered. The Republican party will redeem its
pledges in behalf of the disabled and needy vet
erans of the Union; measures will be taken to
revive our merchant marine; onr postal service,
foreign and domestic, will be placed on a better
footing, and mote intelligent and discriminat
ing economy will be exercised in appropriations
and expenditures of the public money. The?"
and other measures like the direct-tax bill wili
require legislative enactment The next Presi
dent is a man who will take eare that the laws
are faithfully executed. If the conduct of the
Pcminion government c?xt year, for example,
siould be such as to require it. President Har
r son would not fail or refuse to use the ample
pjwere conferred upon the executive to punish
o prevent outrages upon Amerieaa fishermen.
He will cot abuse the veto power.
I would not expect him to veto
a bill solely because he would vote against it
if be were in Congress, or because a chief of
a Inreau or division or a clerk advised bim to
do so. I would cot expect him to approve a
$21000.000 river and harbor bill on one day and
folow it nextday with a balf dozen vetoes of 92
anc 4 pension bills for the benefit of disabled
Union veterans. 1 do not expect that be will
write long, cashing letters full of professions of
devition to the causa of civil-service reform, or
issue warning orders to office-holders against
'pernicious activity' in politics, unless he mesne
to enforce them in a word, I know that Gen.
Harmon is a firm friend of honest civil-service
reform and not a political hypocrite. I have co
doubt that he possesses the firmness and roar
age to correct administration abuses which
have sprung up acrl flourished unchecked during
the past three years in almost every branch of
the public service. There will be co Pan
electric scandals under his administration, acd
he will not fill vacancies in the public service
with recruits from the criminal classes."
Thf National Republican Loagne Secures a
h'liLg ivitli History.
Washington, Nov. 1L Scmo days ago the
National Republican League was presented with
a flag with an interesting history. Nearly half
a eentury ago, when Gen. Wm. Henry Harrison
was the candidate of the Whig party, the party's
emblem was the stare and stripes, in the center
of which General Harrison's portrait was limned.
This year, when the old General's grandson was
the candidate, the prevailing Repnbliean emblem
was the stars and stripes, as forty-eight years
ago. The Lesgue's present was one of these old
emblems, about two feet square, tattered and
worn, but still bearing Gen. Wm. Henry Harri
son's portrait, and the old banner cow adorns
their parlors, the emblem of a second victory.
The emblem wa presented Jy a granddaughter
of Wm. Gideon, William Henry Harrison's most
intimate friend. It was accompanied by a note
dated a week or so before election day, in which
she expressed ber hopes that the banter might
presage a second victory as memorable as the
first .
The Private Secretaryship.
Washington, Nov. 11. There is a grsat deal
of speculation in Washington as to who will be
the successor of Col. Lainont. As the private
secretary is the medium through which the ex
ecutive is reached, there is naturally curiosity
as to whom the public will bavl to apply on ex
ecutive business after the 4th of March next It
bas been stated that ex-Fifth Auditor Alexan
der, who is an intimate friend of General Harri
son, will be the appointee. This announcement
is at best premature, and Col. Alexander, since it
was made, has been quoted as saving that he
does not exDoct or want the p'aee. From the besi
information obtainable in Washington at this
time it appears that the gentleman most likely
to be selected for the crivate secretaryship is
Mr. Perry S. Heath, the special correspondent
of the Indianapolis Journal, who Is also a warm
personal friend of General Harrison. The r.ame
of Iioiseli B. Harrison, son of the President
elect, has been mentioned, bat there are believed
to be reasons why the General would prefer not
to have bis eon fill the position. Aside from his
friendship for the General, and years of serviee
to the party, Mr. Heath is peculiarly fitted for
the position.

The Leader of the Conservatives Sahjected to
Outrage and Violence.
Madrid, Nov. 1L In,anticipation of the ar
rival of Senor Canovas del Castillo from Seville,
& strong force of police and military was posted,
this moroiog, along the streets through which
the Conservative leader was expected to pass on
his way from the railway station to his resi
dence. Thousands of Republicans collected at
the station at an early hour,' and the arrival of
Senor Canovas was the signal for a hostile out
burst. The mob surrounded and followed his
carriage, booting and thro wins; stones. The
windows of the carnage were smashed by the
flying missiles. Senora Canovas, who accom
panied her husband, was strode by a stone,
but was not seriously Injured. When the
carriage reached the Prado, gen-datmes
surrounded it in order to protect the
occupants from violence. Similar scenes of dis
order occurred outside of the residence of Senor
Canovas. In order to escape from the mob he
drove to the house of his brother-in-law, the
Marquis of Sotomayor. The crowd continued
the demonstration in front of the Conservative
Club acd the offices of the Conservative jour
nals. At the Epoca building the mob again
became violent, and every window in the place
was smashed. The agitation abated at midday,
bnt there was a renewal of the demonstration at
4 o'clock this afternoon, and the Conservative
Club was obliged to dose its doers. A Repub
lican journal, the Pais, appeared this evening
with a manifesto from the Republican students,
in which they expressed sympathy with the ac
tion of their comrades at Seville and elsewhere.
The Epoca, in the meantime, bad published an
"extra" headed "In Open Revolution la
which the scenes of the morning were described.
Among the incidents related wss one taat oe
currod at the residence of the Marquis of
Casimeranda. A noisy crowd bad gathered in
front of the house, and the Marquis finally
came out on the balcony, and, boldly confront
ing the men, asked them what it was they
wanted. In reply the; shouted, "Death to Con
servatives. w The Marquis invited the leader of
the crowd to come inside, but the invitation was
cot accepted. The uproar continued until 10

It Still Absorbs Atteution and Causes a Re
vival of Theories. .
London, Nov. 11. The latest Whitechspel
murder is still the leading topio cf discussion,
and all the old theories as to the identity of the
murderer are revived. The face of the woman
Kelly, when ber body was found, resembled a
bloody bait The cose, ears and checks were
missing, bat the eyes had cot been touched.
Surgeons stitched the face together as best they
could, but it was found impossible to identify
the woman from such of her features as were
intact or were drawn together.
This murder makes the ninth of the series
committed, evidently by the same pereon, who
has thus far eluded the police of London, The
first victim was found in the Whitechspel dis
trict, a section of London infested by the vilest
class of the population of that great city, in Oc
tober, 1887. Her body was fearfully mutilated,
bat the crime caused no unusual excitement, it
being supposed it was simply a morder, com
mon in that section. The bloodthirsty fiend
disappeared for nearly a year before a second
victim, found in the same district Aug. 7, gave
evidence that he was still at large, and deter
mined on carrying ont his vendetta egainst
fallen women. This victim was Martha Turner,
another dissolute woman, whose fearfully mu
tilated body was found in Commercial
street, Spitalfields. The similarity of the
murder to the one preceding it
created some interest, and led the po
lice to believe that some surgeon seek
ing anatomical specimens had committed both
crimes. The excitement consequent on the
crimes died away until Aug. 31, when the body
cf Mary Ann Nichols, mutilated in a manner
similar to the other two, was found. Eight
days later the fourth victim, Annie Chapman,
was found at 29 Hanbuiy street, hacked and
dismembered. On the wall near where the body
was found was written in chalk: "Fifteen be
fore I surrender." The next victim was found
at Gateshead, near Newcastle-on-Tvoe, some
distance from the scene of the others. The
mutilation in this instance was like that of the
other victims, aod the circumstances surround
ing the crime led to the belief that she was a
victim of the same fiend who had murdered the
other women. On the same night the body of
atill soother woman was fonnd in Mitre square.
The eighth body was found Oct. 1 in the founda
tion of the projected Metropolitan Opera-house
on the Thames Embankment.

There it a hsao of trouble down in the beau

"The half of the Impositions on Americans and

at the Murray Hill Hotel yesterday. "I hare

last year Secretary Bayard took a stroog stand

have the recognition of the three treaty powers,
and the undemanding that we should not per

cits wss accomplished by our government at
that time, aod so the Germans stepped in and
did just what Mr. Bayard wss aiming at for us.
It was upon the understanding with the natives
that no disposal was to be made of the islands
that the conference was hold. Since the Evarts
treaty in 1872 the natives, who are manly and
intelligent, have always respected and looked cp
to the United States government as the best in
the world, and because of their allegiance to us
the Germans persecuted and even tortured them
shamefully when they secured a foothold.
They have thrown people into prison for simply
being in my employ, or for speaking well of the

to come here and interest the government in be
half of the people there. The King. Tameseie,

sort of premier to represent tbem and their in

good deal of land acqnired in trading operations.
They nave had Mr. Wilson, the English consul,

when I came away they said tbsy bsd driven

the Germans sent their five men-of-war there
again and attempted to fore the natives iaU

A General War the Probable Result Atti
tude of the Great Towers.
Tienna Cable Special to New York World.
Pessimist statesmen here are saying that Ser
bia bas again become a disturbing factor in Eu
ropean politics and threatens to upset the calcu
lations of central European diplomates respect
ing the maintenance of peace in the Balkans, at
least until the coming spring. The differences
between King Milan and Queen Natalie of Ser
via have sharply divided parties in that little
state, and the adherents of the Queen, who are
undoubtedly in the majority outside the official
classes, are meditating a coup d'etat which has
for its object the dethronement of King Milan
and the placing of his son on the throno. with
bis mother as a member of the regency during
his minority.
That the situation in Servia is becoming
alarming is evident from the fact that Rossis
has notified Austria that if the latter should
throw a force into Servia to aid King Milan in
quelling any insurrection that may occur, Rus
sia will at once occupy Bulgaria.
Those European politicians who had watched
the course of events in Srvia during the past
several years expected that Queen Natalie
would not sit calmly under the treatment ebe
received from the King. They cow believe that
the Queen can make disclosures which would
cot only lead to civil war in Servia, bat also
embroil Austria and Russia in a strife which
would probably lead to a general European war,
as Germany and Italy could hardly stand by and
see their ally engaged in a hopeless encounter
with Russia, co matter how damaging the dis
closures against Austria. Sympathy for Queen
Natalie continues to spread, cot only in Servia.
but throughout the other Balkan states and in
Russia, and even in Austria where the Slavs
warmly espouse her cause.
There can be co doubt at all that King Milan
put himself helplessly and scandalously in the
wrong by seeking the divorce in ths manner he
did. Evfcn Henry VIII submitted to the form
of a trial before ridding himself cf a super
fluous wife, aod the first Napoleon, who was
cot careful about appearance, at least went ,
through the formality of having hie divorce)
from Empress Josephine pronounced by the
Senate. King Milan rushed to his end with a
brutal cynicism, and contented himself with in
ducing or compelling his servile metropolitans
to pronounce the divorce. The whole business
savored of a mean kind of xnedusval despotism,
and was a flat insult to the other bith'pa and
functionaries at whose bands the King's suit
was awaiting judgment in the ordinary course.

Stuttgart. Nov. 13. There is reason to be
lieve on the best authority here that Mittnaeht
has sot told the exact truth about the circum
stances under which he is to take up the port
folio again. Bismarck's pressure was necessary
to make him do it. King Charles's affection for
bis American favorites proved greater than that
for the people, and it besios to look as though
Baron Woodcock bad partially won the
lay. The following is the basis
on whieh Mittnseht consented to withdraw his
resignation. That on the twenty-fifth anniver
r sary of the King's ascension to the thrc-oe, next
' April, be niJl abdicate in ?aoref Ins nephew,
Prince Wilhelm, and until that date his Amer
ican favorites must ootnter Wnrtemberg terri
tory. It is required that the a log, if be shall
continue to live with these aliens, roust reside in
the south of France cr Italy, aod cot in Stutt
gart. Having thus far gained their point, the
good people of Stuttgart are settling dowu to
the even tenor of their quiet life, from whieh
the recent eourt scandal roused them.
Exciting Scene in a Menagerie.
London Standard.
An exciting scene occurred, yesterday, at
Bone, in Algeria, at the aquarium a sort of
itinerant menagerie. The special feature of
this aquarium consisted of a collection of co
less than seventy crocodiles, whieh were fed
publicly at stated hours by the mansgsr, M.
Pcrnolet. He always wore a pair of Wellington
boots, and bad a stick with which to beat off the
reptiles when they became too ravenous and at
temgted to snap the food out of bis bands.
On this occasion he was sitting on the back of
the largest crocodile, and kept feeding the rest
for about ten minutes, when all at once, aa he
turned his head and put out his hand to the at
tendant for a piece of meat, one of the others
crawled up to bim and bit him :n the stomach.
A shont was raised by the spectators, aod those
around the tank tried to beat away the croco
dile, who, notwithstanding M. Pernolet's blows,
began whirling round his prey as if to tear him '
to pieces. Unfortunately tn struggling ZL Per
colet slipped and fell in the very midst of the
reptiles, which all rushed cn him with fury. A
panio took place among the apectators, wbe
mostly fled. Nevertheless. JL Peruoletwas res
cued. Although his wounds are serious, his
life is not thought to he in danger.
King; Mllau'a Future.
Yienna Diipatch to London Times.
The opinion among diplomatists and poli
ticians appears to be that King Milan's future
cow depends on the use which he mskes of his
present opportunities. During the last twa
years he bas been nervously irritable, and often
so despoodent that his sudden abdication bas
been feared. . Allowances are made for this by
those who know bow terribly teased he was by
his wife, for It is only party
prejudice that can affect to believe thlit
all the wrongs In the matrimonial
quarrels were on his side. King Milan
is naturally an eaiy-tempered man, and be is too
clsver to have engaged in an open quarrei with
the Queen without provocation passing endur
ance. But cow that the chief cause of his
troubles has been removed acd that a new era
is opening in his reign, people wili watch anx
iously for a display of the good qualities whiea
his friends assert bim to possess. In Austria
Hungary especially, where there exists a gen
eral belief in his shrewdness, and where the loy
alty of his policy toward this empire is appreci
ated, it will be hoped that he msy so bear him
self in future as to dimmish the cumber of his
eoemies and to give the remnant of them lest
justification in their endeavors to disturb Servia.
All Very Bad for President Carnot.
Paris Dispatch London Daily Tvlsgraph.
Like Leon Gambetta, President Carnot, as
cording to an Imperialist paper, has the evil eye.
M. Caroot possesses, says this authority, the
fatal implacable head, the fixed, glaisy, and
lugubrious stare of a jettatore. The President
mnst, it seems, be endowed with these uncanny
attributes, because when be went to Savoy the
rivers overflowed their banks, at Cherbourg
sailors were drowsed doring bis visit, at Foo
tainebleau, where he was lately staying, confla
grations broke cut all over the place, and quite
lately two men died of aporlectic strokes, jcit
outside th Elrsee Palace, where he lives. This
tremendous discovery on the' part of the Ita
perahst orrsn is as good as the wonderful horo
seopo of George Eruest Boalangr, whieh was
sold some mouths sgo tn many of the kiosks.
