London. September 14.
These are days when everything is called In
?naation. and nowhere ruore snamly than In thc
House of Commune. That matters ol nigh conse?
quence should be debated, and debated in a radical
eplnt. can surprise nobody- But little things are
looked iDto at times Just as closely. The House
bas been engaged for the last week jr two on what
ls toohnioally known a*. Supply. Supply moans the
Toting of tho money by which the government ol
the oountry te oarrtod 08. The estimates are
prepared In detitll hy eaoh department., and con
oiderea in Committee of the Whole House. The
Ireault le that the whole question of national
expenditure comos under the direct scrutiny of
aach moinber who cares to look into lt.
Ho has two opportunities. Gu the motton tbnt
the Speaker do leave the chair, any member can
move a resolution relevant to the estimates then to
bo uken, ami may call attsntion to any subject
withiu this usually wide range. The Speaker once
ont of tbe ohitir, eaoh member may dlscoss any
Item or move to reduce the amount of any proposed
Tote, This privilege resolves itaslf very often Into
? means of exposing abuses, or generally of raining
?ny question or grievanco relating to that branch
Of tho administration for which monay is aaked. A
?imiiar prluolpla is in foroe In other countries
?which rejoice In a parliamentary government. But
there is. perhaps, none where the representatives of
the people use their prerogative more freely than In
Great Britain.
*}Une unexpected result of thia practice ie that the
discussion on Supply ls often amusing. There has
always boon some mnuiber of the House of
Coma ons with a passion for pry Inn into details, for
ferreting out iniquities, for unearthing Jobs, for
?topping leaks. Ile rn ty be an ec m.inuit, like tho
late Mr. Joseph linne., or a self-appointed watch?
dog of tbe treasury. Uko Mr..Pater Hylands, or a
pian in search of amusement, like Mr. Labouchere.
Iriah members have for soma yean past shown
?much Ingenuity In handling questions of supply.
English aud Scotch Radicals are uow pressing
them hard. There was even a time wbsu tbe
Ohsncellor of thc Exchequer and Leader of the
Home developed .what was then thought an
abnormal activity In these matters?hs and his
three colleagues who then constituted the fourth
Party.7 He ia sometimes reiniudedlofjt now.
Anybody who alts through an erenlnj devoted to
Supply will begin to doubt whether the English
really have much revereuoe left for mere custom or
precedent. Tho most venerable eccentricities ure
ts freely Inquired iuto as the newest Ministerial
Ind iciet.uu. whether English, Scotch or Irish.

KLEVATKD RAILWAY MON THP. BRIDOR.
For mora than six mouths the thirty or more
ouaand daily patrons of tho Brooklyn Elevated
lilroad who use tho Bridge have submitted to an
convenience vi Uh remarkably good grace. Day
ter day and ni?*ht after night they have cai el idly
eked tleir various ways down the loni*, dark flight
thirty-five well worn stone steps wlioli conned the
ridge landing on the Brooklyn aide with iiandi-it.,
udged out Into thia thoroughfare and down Waehing
?n-et.. In all kinds of weather, and then toiled pain
illy up another long Hight of thirty-five steps to the
led-Uke sutranoe of the railway. There ls no
lorter, no easier way for any oue. The vaat amount
'energy that Ma'oilaume Journey has caused to be
a*ted, not to m ntlon the aotual Buffering it dully in?
da upon delioate women and apoplectic men, is
moat inoaloulable. Tho fact that lt baa been toler
?od so long ls held by some as an illustration that
ew-York and Brooklyn people are the mint lonij
ifjenns people In the world. Doubtless they are, but
la oertain that there would have brou a great ont
ry made had it not been generally understood that
io Bridge people and tbe railroad company were do
lg their best to solve the problem.
All last winter and througho.it the spring various
Ians wrre discussed In nu earnest manuer. Tnt
Iridge trustees and tho railroad managers would not
ty openly that lt waa In possible to darlao ear tan*
rovemeut, but they teamed tu think that the diilicul
lei furnished an abundant et ohm* for Col ay. The
Strews of the road at last begin to mani feat signs of
opalton oe, Hnnaomna complaints, baaed upon thi*
iuw of thc case, having come to Tin-, i ii nu'Mk othce,
reporter oaliod upon Coiouei Uurtiu, superintendent
f the Bridge, and asked him In regal d te them.
"That matter, " said Mr. Martin, "has been consld
red by ui and tho railroad managers Jointly und
op irately again aad agata. All sorts of suggestions
,nd schemes have boen offaied and examined, but
hus far Dune bas been found that will completely
nive the perplexing pro dem. Ol tho number ol plans
igorod theio were four deemed worth} oi ?onslaera*
ion. First lt was proposed IO build an elevated
Tossing above tho tracks inside the station fruin one
anding to the other. This wculd enable ihe railroad
ia?sent;ora to cross to the railroad entrance without
;omg ouUi'lo or even downstairs, lt waa quickly
leen, however, that this was impracticable. The
itatloo is bobbi tune* so tull of steam and smoke from
:he locomotives that it would be impossible foe one lo
iee at all at such an elevation ns this crossing would
luve to bo built. The second Boheme was to build the
mossing over the tracks and oonneol it with the road
but have it outside the station, on the end toward tho
river, of OSQXne. Hie objection* to this are evident.
During rush hour* tho south landing la almost con?
stantly packed. Supposing one-third of the people,
a fair estimate, wanted to take the railroad. Don't
you sue what a confusion it would mane lor them to
try und get boah to tba oToesiin I lt eoald not bu
done. A thud plan which (-oems more leoaible than
either of these ia to bara the railroadpaaseagere
rem.au in the eura until tin- latter are switched over
un tin! side nett thc 1 allman entrain o.''
a \\ hat are the objections lo this I"
'? Thora an several. In thc aral place it would take
almost aa long togel two tlnrdu ol 'no paseSBgera OUl
a- te empt* tba ears. In raab boors whoa mu mu on a
min tte .iud a hull headway every scoond is precious,
If this pi.in were adopted we should have lo stop
tn uuload on eaoh eide and we have no time to do lt.
Besides, it would take considerable time to educate
passengers up to btavmg ou und getting oil properly.
It co .dd be done wilhoui much trouble in the case of
regular daily travellers, bul tho tTBBBlsnlS would
cause lota of trouble and delay.''
" What is the other plan P
"This 1 think thc mool praetic il of all. It is to loka
away the sn it li aide of the Bridge station and run out
a pl<itlorui 011 brackets the annie sue as the preeeat
lauding. This platform would ot course be co'.end.
I'asengeis going on the railroad would step uu lina
sud go down to tue end of the station towaid tlie river.

doom to the promenade which they would cross to
Liku another abort -' . ' '? ?? > lending la (lin railway
station, hven this you seo involves going down aud

as the presuut mien. 1 tua plan also involves quite
a walk lor the passengers, hut not eo loug or so

and would be in the direction of the derated station.

SPECTACLES IN BERLIN.
AI8ER WILHELM AT THE REVIEW-THE
DALY COMPANY.
bom ak uci'.iuxii.ii.iiiiiKii'nviiiir or thb TKini;*?a. ]
l.'ritt.i", September 10.
Autumn after autumn the same refrain ls he ird i
The Kaiser's list parade"; bat years come and
i leaving him apparently unchanged. It is roar
cil'ius that a nonogenarian slioald review his
-oops, limier a burning, almost tropical snn, with
ie fresh ness, visor and tnterost ot younger years,
he parade, lt ls true, waa shortened owing lo the
tinting soldiers, many of the 23,000 who bad been
mullioned to duty being overcome by tho unusual
eat and carried from the Held. Yet several hours
rere necessary for the men to march by. The
ant "mri parn do " has always been a gala day tn
he metropolis. From earliest dawn the streets are
?stir with living masses; and before tho palace of
he Emperor cager throngs congregate to greet
heir King and witness tho delegated companies
rom the various regimonts bring tlioir ensigns
rom tbe palace hall. The scene on Tempelbofer
ield is gay and enticing. Formerly?even a year
igo?the parado grounds were the trysting olace ol
ill strangers. No request for a carriage ticket was
efused by the genial ex-president of oollce. Herr
,-on Mada!, who la said to have been the only cour?
ier who could brirTg the Emperor to a laugh, and
?/ho. for that very reason, waa rotatned lu offlee
ong after the gout had played havoc with his
Igure and made him a sorry looking Napoleon In
'die saddle. But tho present incumbent, uninflu?
enced by precedent, paid little attention to the letter
? f request, slyiy referring one to the Minister, who,
t was afterward found to one's great chagrin,
reassessed only a Bingle ticket himself. Foreign dig?
nitaries, too, were present in mach smaller number,
?ecrecy being now the law In Prussian tactics.
Die experiment has booti tried 0/ banishing re?
porters from the iiiaticeuviing fields, it being
['lanncd that secrete liavo been betrayed and facts
misrepresented hy the " penny-a-liners " in a way
nut to bo borne. Young o Mice rs are now detailed in
turu to writo the mallei' up, furnishing only audi
inform.lion as will bo harmless; and also servo no
purpose whatever in interesting tbe public. As
a cotise.itionce of these measures, tbe public which
lined tbo parade grounds, formerly coinpo*ed of tbe
labblo and vagabond alono, was this year sprinkled
With a large percentage ol respectability.
Long and loud were the cheers and " (lood morn
inji, Your Majesty !" wlion tho coach aud four en?
tered the Inelooore and drove slowly past tbe click?
ing guns of tbe grenadiers. Nor did it cease when
tbo Emperor had taken his place under the histori?
cal oak tree.totally unprotected.in the open carriage,
ana saluted tho ofSoera as tbey led their r-giments
hy. Even tho Empress, whose ashy-pale lacunae
pitiable to Hoe, was exposed to tue beating rays,
only ii small red parasol warding thom ntl the aged
bend. 1 nave rarely seen even royalty received
with bach enthusiasm as when the family jolted
along the Belle Alliance Strafe homeward bound.
I he beroio-lo-uklDR heir, astr.de a black stallion,
dashed by amid deafening hurrahs; but when the
Emperor appeared, looking fresh ead well despite
ti.e labor Ju*t assesed through, words fail to give an
idea e. tbe ('tiered 'minago. All the thousands from
tho cny and parade grounds, knowing the route,
gathered there and awaited the approach. From
ev ,tv windi.w ol tho many-stoned houses waved
handkerchiefs, and along Hie densely crowded D0>
veiiniii hats dew lo tho air; ladies bowel and
men hallooed themselves Louise. Mulling at tho
Drool of his popularity,ami oarer tiring lu his groot*
inga, tbn Emperor kapi bia hand <>u tbo helmet's
brim and bowed Ins Lead in answer.
Mr. Daly's New-York troupe, I am .surry to say,
(lid not meet with success iu tho German metropo?
lis. Coming as it dbi with the laurels won iii l.ug
l.itid aud Hamburg, where tue population, being
mercantile, U more cosuiouoiitau. tbe deteat was
the hamer to bear. Un tbe brat evening, ow mg
to the tall attend.nice ol' the American colony, tho
Uieatro was well Ulled; but at tlie following 11.T
forniaOCO Bot moro than a (lo/.en rowe of tbe par
qOet weie Liken, and ibo** almost without excep?
tion by Americans, llie remaining days showed
ev. 11 (i.icre.ise I ut tendance, urnd Mr. Haly departed
doubtless mucb mit of pocket by his U.-rliii vent
uro. Vet Ins expect atolls were not otherwise. In
fm t, ins only Inteetion ie presenting bia eompany
tn conservative Berlin was to introduce the authors
whose pieces have been osoi to their uileipieters
on tbo otiior side the Atlantic. No oue knows tbe
Berlin public bettei than Mr. Daly 01 understood
moro thmougtily ita aversion to ti.e American in
art. I he l.uglish language is not well enough un?
derstood In Berlin IO make such au undertaking as
hie profitable, and tbo .American and English col?
onies are not siifllcieiill.v large to make (.orman
attendance immaterial. With Dresden, whither
Mr. Ii..ly dues not g.", it would have been entirely
different.
The series was introduced in most, diplomatic
meaner. Theeoeemble appeared, so to spooky in
' ie; niall null.11111, as is ibo custom witb visiting
loieigii prunes. " A Night Ott " being a translation
of " Der li sub dor Sabiiieriuiien,'' tho good m.ste of
thia choice waa nnatiotediy praised, lint tho crit
1. 1 -tina which weie favorable were condescendingly
ao. and many incited by all egotism that wac
almost boundless, "ll is a duty of international
c..iii tesl'," said ono paper, " to bid the excellent
guests welcome "; and that after a column of iinlitl
eleni remarket. "The programme. e\ eu,'' contin?
ued au.iibcr, " contained much which wounds us
Uermana, Thai the company ibooid cite its aue
cesses In London, and add even that London is in
England, is intolerable to us. That' Der Knob der

The musical accompaniment was unbearable. 'Hie
dialogue ls often too tedious, and the translation
endeavors to attain too climatic etleots. All this,
however, we ibooid regard a* mistakes only on our
home stage, but with our guests must regard them
as nomi I ian lies of their country. A'e have no ngut
to loree our own babita and customs upon them ;
on the contrary, we should be glad to make their

humor. Le sis, who gave tne Professor, cliaracter

with tuiich grace, allowing herself now and then,
to be sure, the privileges of a spoiled public tavor
ite." lhere was much such ? criticism," loo insipid
for reproduction ; and another writer ended with
the reinaik : " We feel that tbe Berlin public will
forego tbe pleasure of applauding ' Love ou

to tho American colony."

Saratoga, Sept. 2r>.?D;iui?l Lockwood, of

tte Committee thia week, and the question wat ra?

nt Clsvelsud. lt has hero both reported and denial
at Lockwood and the I'rsil lent are out. The indies.
ms are all of aa a .lrt'atlvo nature, but Mr. Lock wood
S reticent man on this subteot au 1 if ba fa*.s ag.
: ved he will oevor aay io In public. I n-a t,..,j jj.,!
i haa sufficient wosltb to make him liidlOorent t<i tao
'eildeuft favor and t mt he gained ail the political
mors that he cares aboil by lila service in OsOjjeaaajL

as Miss Brown, wbo a ss a daughter ot a ar ge furniture

an when he mariloU Min Br<iwn. tier father ron*
ived a worm admiration for bli son-in-law ant whoa
i iii" l.i.'.iviug an estate of |t.OuO.ODO, be gave a te i rth
it ti Lockwood, another fourth io hu daugbter, and
e two other unlllous to the test nf his family, charging
r. Lock wool with the care of tbe genarel investments.
I* busmen enough for one man and Mr. Lockwood's
illtka ls merely his pastime. It ls a "urloua coincidence
.it he abould have put Cleveland's name lu nomi*
itton for **tiertfl, for Mayor, for Goveroor.aod for I'real
;ut If Mr. Cleveland ta (sally desirous of a second
rm, lt will be necessary for him to make peace wuk
r. I,ook wood, tor tue political wlseaerei would never
'Here ll ponlble for Mr. Cleteiaud to succeed in a
coud election If his na.ne weis presented to the
invention by toy one else than Lookwood.
Writing ot Mr. Lockwood reminds me of a atory I
jard hereof a ."Uer written to President Cleveland bf
wold law partner. Wllaou Shannon liiesetl, oloknaiaed

tying: " 1 understand that your letter on tba oat Me

lld to have regarded this as the best ;Oko ot his Admin
gration.
With the President's return to Washington the roliM*

e thought tbat Mr. (lari nd ls the we.sk sister who will
rup out first, but there ts also some discussion about
Ir. Bayard. The Delaware statesman ts generally
