Temper and digestion both seem out of order, for the wheels of gov ernment are running anything but smoothly in the Fatherland. The so cialists have tried his patience severely. His parliament is a constant burden and care. His ex-employes are not nearly as loyal to him as he imagines they ought to be, and so, as a natural consequence, the hand of the emperor, as heavy as a German drill sergeant's, is grabbing a victim here and there by the scalp and i whirling him around in a spirit of grati tied revenge. Himself no advocate of cruelty, the emperor is very naturally highly dis gusted with the publication to the world of the stories of barbarous cruel ties practised upon the soldiers of the f German army. The details that were given and that have not been contra- a dicted, were fully worthy of Russia it- d self. Indeed it was impossible to con- a tradict them without impeaching the 1 authority of the circular letter of ani madversion issued by Prince George, of e Saxony, to his colonels. But the circu lar, it is declared, was confidential, and ti the emperor is fuming and fretting for P a chance to get even with those who gave the revelations away. It was a E scurvy trick for the socialists to play. All the emperor's confidence in his fine SI grandmotherly schemes of winning the ti heart of socialism is blasted. With the tl falling of the mask comes the stern a assertion that socialism is once more rampant, bent on mischief, and, if it C will have it so, must be firmly crushed out of existence. h It would be interesting to know just li what conception of the constitutional ti liberty of the subject is entertained by rn the young emperor. He is not old 8a enough yet to have quite forgotten the details of his country's history, but he w ignores all that as unpleasant to him P with a lordliness that is anything but soothing to those of his subjects with o better memories. Count Timberg Sti- aI rum has performed some services for his country, but in a rash moment he was guilty of the heinous offense of an- ji tagonizing in a German newspaper the commercial treaties that had mot with the approval of his sovereign. It posi- d tively smacks of the extravagance of a dime novel to read that the count has been dismissed from the public service, must d suffer the loss of his pension and be de prived of his diplomatic title of ambass- t ador. An unlucky thing, surely; to be a scapegoat for Bismarck's offences! There is bult one ray of light in the hi whole business, and it shines out in the, declaration that even the docile con servatives have boon roused to opposi.

AUDITORIUM 0_ AI QORtY, Trying to Make the Iatter Aanswr 'the ruposeesof the Forlmer. The special meeting of the olt councll which it was-epeoted would be called for last nighlt, to consider the auditorium proposition, was not held. Special. spet inRs of the city council are' oalled by t. mayor at the request of two or more alder men. At Wednesday's consultation be tween the committees reproepenti ahs different conventions to be held thisa) u mer and the aldermanic committee - pointed at the last mepting of the olty.;un oil, it was generally understood tb0 t the auditorium project was int. good . tlpe. Alderman Thompson was looked upon as being in favor of the proposition, and ex pressed his willingness to aid in the call for a special meeting of the city council for last night, to take action on the question of building an auditorium. Alderman Lisa ner also favored it and, so far as known, still does. The committeeq representing the Ancient Order of United Workmen, the Sons of Veterans and the mining con gress fully expected the special meeting to be called and were prepared to attend it. Their surprise was great last night when it was learned that no meeting had been called. No request for a meeting had been made to Mayor Kleinsohmidt and consequently he lad called none. The mayor expressed himself as favoring an entirely different proposition from that which contemplated the building of an auditorium by the city. He now thinks the armory could be secured and fitted up for the accommodation of the three conventiops. This would mean put ting in a temporary inclined floor, so that those seated in any rart of the building could see whpt a.as going on. It would also necessitate arrangements by which the acoustics could be improved to enable all to hear. The seats and the inUlined floor, it is contemplated, could be taken out when not needed and put back when there was any public gathering. Part of the scheme is to have the car tracks extended from Helena avenue to the armory for, the accommodation of people going to and re turning from the place. All this, it is said, could be dcine at an expense of about $1,O00. The aMlitorium, It is contended, would cost $25,000 or $30,000, which is looked upon by the mayor as more than the city can afford to spend in its present finan cial condition. Alderman Thompson ex pressed the same views and thought the ar mory could be made to suit the needs of the several conventions. The committees of the various bodies which are to meet here are not so well pleased, however, as they expected to alow their visitors that the city had not invited them to Helena without having a suitable place for them to assemble in. They may gain their object before the city council when it meets on Tuesday night. JOTTINGS ABOUT TOWN. The school trustees will meet in special session to-day.
