Conlinucil from First Pane._ -.lace. the secretaryship of State for India. F**w thought him well fitted for it. None doubted his title to such blghssl promotion as was available. To'refuse lt is ? BBkCsltBot. Mr. Morley ls capable of self-sacrifice, and knows that his presence in Dublin Ca st I** '9 regarded by the Irish National? ists as a pledge tbat Home Utile ls still an Item of the poHoy of the Liberal party under Its new leader. He sall lately at Cork that he had nailed the preen flag to the mast. He vindicates the sincerity of that rather rhetorical assurance. It ls a piece of characteristic, loyalty?the more loyal and the more characteristic If lt be true that his experience la Ireland has robbed him of 'some cherished illusions and chilled pome very ardent hopes. The remodelling: of a Government weakened by the departure >f Mr. Gladstone ls no light task, and I hav* but hinted at the perplexities, or gome of them, which have beset Ixrd Rosebery during the week. Rut he has accomplished at the same time a still more extraordinary' exploit, something like a revolution In public opinion. To quell a mutiny, to baffle intrigues, to concili? ate <\ c'.!!e.?ir'!<* with high claims to leadership, to adjust conflicting claims to office, to meet with l'lrmr.iss a calamity like the exile of Mr. M.t iorlbanks from the House of Commons, to live down a bitter prejudice In the ranks disci on the accident of birth and enforced member? ship of the House of Lords, to keep hostile sec? tions of the party together, to construct a strong Government out of materials none too strong? these nre the achievements of no ordinary man. Bul if sitns of the times may be trusted. Ix>rd Kosebsry seems to have brought over to his side a great body of public opinion which held stead? fastly aloof from Mr. Gladstone, and that ls a far higher ami more Important achievement. It is a tribute to his energy of character, to his Fintavity, and to the fact that he ls in touch With the people. He was nominated by the ac? clamation of his own party. His nomination ls ratified by those who- are o' no party. His repu? tation for political ability ls largely due to his work at the Foreign Office, most of which ls necessarily done In secret Yet somehow lt is known whether a Foreign Secretary succeeds or rot, and Lord Rosebery's diplomatic fame spread far and wide. That would not of Itself stamp him as the man for Prime Minister, nor win him the confidence of the country he had to govern. What doe**, win lt ls the known fact that his views and sympathies coincide on one point with the views and sympathies of the immense ma? jority of his fellow-subjects, and on another with thous of the multitudes who are a majority of the electorate. The ideas of the day In England run on two broad lines. Imperialism and Social Reform. Mr. Gladstone represented Balthar. Lord Rosebery represents both. The Manchester School ls dead. It would bo hard tn name a pub? lic man under sixty who could truly be called a Cobdenlte. A htsrher type of statesmanship went out with the Peelites, the last of whom disap? peared from public life when Mr. Gladstone re? signed. The mantle of Slr Robert Peel will never again oover a Prime Minister. What English? men want ls to keep the Empire together and keep lt an Empire. The policy of any states? man whom they are to trust must look to the greatness of England and provide for her de? fence?for her naval defence first of all. as dan? gerous notions had gone abroad that Mr. Glad? stone was Inert about naval defence. It is known that the dominant note in Lord Rosebery is the Imperial note. Social Reform comes next?not Socialism, which is a very dif? ferent matter. Lord Rosebery's past is full of social pledges. He has the masses behind him, the laboring masses first of all, and he has won th-Mr faith without ever drawing a line between them and the classes. He must, I think, In the end find the basis and support of his general politics In the loyalty of the workingmen to him who ls loyal to them. In that direction, if in any direction, Iles the English hope of eseape from the present dependency of English policy, so far as lt ls for reform, upon Irish votes. The course he may follow on many other Issues, on points of the Newcastle pro?2rra.mme and on the House of Lords, lr important, hut far less Im? portant than thea** two. The others are Interest? ing, and some of them stir deep passions, but Imperialism and Social Reform are vital, and they are permanent Issues. Putting all these things together, political ob? servers have modified their opinions as to the near political future. The Opposition have modi? fied their opinions. They wereconfldent a fortnight ago, or even a week ago, of two things: That a dissolution was Imminent, and that when lt came they would sweep the country. Now they are confident of neither. The coming week w!ll be hardly less memorable than that which ends to? day. The Cabinet ls formed. Its policy is now to be announced. Lord Rosebery has summoned a meeting of his supporters in the House of Com? mons for Monday at the Foreign Office. It ls re? marked that the official notice, signed by Mr. Ellis, the new Liberal whip, runs in the" Joint names of the Prime Minister and Slr William Harcourt. Lord Rosebery will then lay his views before the party, and anybody will be at liberty to comment on them. The Queen's speech was settled at the first Cabinet council on Wednesday, and its contents will be known at the Ministerial and Opposition dinners this evening, and to all the world through Monday morning's newspapers. Tie Liberals, therefor*, will have bad time to digest lt before they assemble at the Foreign office. But Lord Rosebery's speech to his party ls likely IO travel far beyond the very strict and formal paragraphs of the Royal Message. It ls for him to decide how far he will go In framing a pro? gramme for the session, but he will undoubtedly be expected to lay down the broad principles on which hiB policy rests. It will then be seen whether his gifts for leadership answer to the hopes of his party. They have stood the test of Cabinet-making in circumstances which led some political wiseacres to declare that no Cabinet could be formed. The tent of measures and principles ls ruder still. Half a dozen sections, each with a patt measure, clamor for precedence, and half of them at least threaten to desert the Ministry If their claims to a front seat are not recognized. The Radicals, and especially the Socialistic Radl'-als, will look for a large state? ment of principles. The country will be alarmed If lt ls too large. These are but a few of the perils which encompass the new leader and which he will have to face at the Foreign Office on Monday. On the same afternoon there will be a debate In the Lords on the address In reply to the Queen's speech. On Saturday Lord Rosebery speaks at the Corn Exchange In Edinburgh. It ls plain therefore that he ls not going to take refuge in silence. Instead of avoiding opportunl FLINT'S FINE FURNITURE. About the Fashions.

Th<- circumstance** require courage as well as adroitness. The very on thustssm he has aroused adds to his troubles, He must satisfy expectation. The Radical mutiny which Mr. Lah OUCBore tried to head has collapsed, and Mr. Labouchere himself has had to snnounce thst, though still hostile to what be calls a peer Premier, be shall not vote'against him just yet. That means that the time is not propitious, bill nobody douhts that Mr. Labouchere means mischief and Bill do his best to upset tlie coach when be SCCS .1 chance. Do not reckon him. however, among Lord Rosebery's stumbling Mocka His opposi? tion is worth more than tlie support of most men. Whether the Redmond Manifesto means muob or will aval) much may also be doubted. Mr. Redmond passes a vote of want of confidence be? fore he has any other knowledge of the Prime Minister's Irish policy than is to be Inferred from his keeping Mr. John Morley at Dublin, notwith? standing Mr. Morley's Wish to be rslleTfd. The McCarthy wini*; of the Nationalists, Itself divided Into two sections, has shown a willingness to wait, though some of Its members think and say that Mr. Gladstone's retirement closes un era, and that the Irish party lias recovered Its inde? pendence. In no case was this to be an Irish session. Mr. Gladstone would not have Intro? duced his Home Rule bill had he remained In office. Mr. Redmond accuses him of being party to a scheme to defeat the hopes of the Irish people. That ls not a Judicious remark In the presence of thc notorious fact that Mr. (Hailstone cared more about Home Rule than anything else. If he had seen his way to placing his bin on the statute book lt ls probable he would somehow have surmounted the other Impossibilities which drove him from power. The Irish members may hold the fate of the Ministry In their hamls so far nn the House of Commons ls concerned. It ls .1 power which, if they are wise, they Will b< slow ti exercise. Nothing would help Loni Rose? bery more with tlie English constituencies than to be obliged to present himself before them as tlie victim of an Impracticable and Irreconcilable faction. It is an advantage which he may derive later, not. I think, from the Irish, but from ex? tremists of another type. G. W. S. RUSSIAN THE A TY ADVANCED. FAMING IT8 aSBCOND READING IN THE REICHSTAG BT Tl VOTE OP 200 TO 146. THE AOBABIANS TRY OBBfHVCTTVB TACTta-p Tin: CHANCELtVOB AND SEVERAL MIS 1ST BBS PRESENT Pi "Il INO THE DEBATE F.M PKROR william's MEW PLAN?TBE rt'RRENCT COMMISSION. [Caparttht, ISM nv H" VnttaA Vrttts Rerlin, March 10 Tlie vote a.n tlie second rending of th.- Russian treaty was altruist exactly known an hour before the debate ..pened In the Reichstag to-day. Tlie ? Government whips In the lobby were so fret] acquaint* '1 then with the plans of the parliamentary grorps that they predicted a Ministerial majority Of fifty 1 nly four votes oul of the way. The "Va.sslsche Zeltung" said yesterday that tlie majority would be forty. Two weeks apo, when the Agrarians regarded th*** defeat of the treaty as certain, the United Press correspondent was enabled to fore? cast a majority of thirty. This forecast was based on knowledge of Chancellor von Capri-si's manipulation of the partier*. Since the thlr.l week In February dev lopments In d'omssttc politics have been rapid. When the eommlsslain of twenty?e/lgbl ended their w>rk on Thurwalay the AKrarians admitted that their position was hopeless. Many Conservative Deputies have been asking their Influential camstltnents, openly or covertly. In the last ten days, to be absolved from their promises to fight the treaty. When Camnt Don hoff secured from the K<ir.lB*sberg elect..rs a re? lease from his pledge to oppose the new tariff others of his group took heart and began to abate their oppa.sitl'.n without first getting the sanction of their constituents. The commission of Iwenty-cl-jht had decided In favor of an oral report on the treaty and announced the decision to the House. The Poi? sons given fa.r this course were that tlie Interval between now and March 20, when the treaty must Ire finally acted upon, was too sh'irt for the prepsiratlon of a printed document. Frelherr von Manteuffel, one of the ablest Agrarian lead? ers, at onoe began Ob**tl*UCtlve tactics. A Written report must be made, he said. The au;.porters of the Government reminded the >DeputlSS bow long the Army Bill Commission required to pre? sent such a document. .Several speakers went through the parliamentary history of the last eight years to cite Instances of protracted delays which had been caused by pealantlc adhera-n S to the letter of formal procedure. The Agrarians continued to protest, but, b<lr.g nnsklllefl in ob structla.n, they were fast crowded to th>* wall, and Ix-p'ity Moller, reporter of the i'ommlBs|.?n, was able to make his OfBotaOl statement. The debate on the report pro.-eeded rapidly. The seats of th- Depatles w.re filled. Th- gal? lery's, became crowded as the time f'.r the vote approached. On the benches of the Bnndsswtb, facing the house, sat Chai.a ellor von Caprlvl, Krelherr Mars'hal! von Uleberswln. Minister of P\M*elgl Affairs; I >r. von BQtttcbsr, Se<-retary of the Interior' Herr von HeydSB, Minister of Agriculture; <"<-nernl Hrongart von S.-hell-n dorff, of the \\"?r Ministry, sad Finance MU.In? ter MIOJueL All followed the course of the debate with eagerness; bal without apparent anxiety. As the time for thu vote S'pproached the Con? servatives became uneasy. Finally, a few of tho least bitter Agrarians left the house. Count von Kanltr. and a small group of Conservatives, to? gether with several Dm SI IS BS anal Clericals, who were expected to absent themselves, k.-pt their seats but (lld not vote. Two linn.Ired deputies responded "v-s," snd 141 "no," when the names were caliea!. Tlie majority consisted Of National Liberals, Radicals, 1'olcn and th* Wiiite:nba-rg, Rhenish and Sllesinn members. The treaty will pass the third reading on next Thursday at the latest MOW that tlie fat.- of the treaty ls virtually settled, Emperor winiam will begin ? new move In which he hopes to conciliate the Agrarian Conservatlv -.1. Already Dr. Iflquel bas leen played against Count von Capri vi to IndBOS the Agrarians to believe thai tbe Finance Minister ts their a,nly hope. The Emperor has confidence In the abilities of both Ministers, ami believes that th-y ure nt men to work his ends. The Radi? cal newspapers yesterday announced Bgalfl that Dr, Iflquel would resign ..wing to the failure of his lineal reform plan, bul there ls no proof that they have any trustworthy Information be> hlnd their statements, sflquel himself |i:is be. gun In earnest to I-""' as a friend of the Agra? rians.
