PART 11.
London, May 30.
The closing days before the Whitsuntide holi
days have witnessed a remarkable revival of
political activity. With Lord Roberts at Johan
nesburg and Pretoria within striking distance of
a British army, the end of the war is fairly
within Fight: and the question of the hour at
Westminster and In every political club is:
"What use will the Unionists make of military
victories?" The smoking room of "the best club
In the world" is filled afternoon and evening
with members of Parliament who are eager to
learn the date for the general elections, whether
In July or in October; and the Conservative
clubs mro crowd* at midnight with loungers,
•who exchange political tips and gossip cheer
fully about a khaki appeal to the country. Poll
tics have been stagnant as a mill pond since the
elections in 1595, when the Unionists returned
to power with an overwhelming majority. Sud
denly the quiet raters have been set whirling,
and there Is an irresistible onrush toward a
general election.
Unionists who advocate, an immediate appeal
to the country cite 'Lor.l Beaoonsflold's experi
ence as a warning. When he and Lord Salis
bury returned In triumph from the Congress of
Berlin there was a chorus of popular acclama
tion and "Peace with Honor" seemed a magical
password and charm for the pled 'rat- . Lord
Beaconsfleld, if he bad followed his own Instinct,
would have dissolved Parliament at once and.
as the old Tories have always believed, would
have carried the country with him He hesi
tated, allowed himself to be dissuaded and de
ferred the general elections; and In the course
of two years the Afghan war came on, the South
African complications arose, and Mr. Gladstone
was enabled to rally the Liberal forces in his
Midlothian campaign. When the general elec
tions were ordered the Congress of Berlin, In
•which Lord B^aconptield had played a con
spicuous part in thwarting Russian ambition,
had passed out of the public mind. Advantage
had not been taken of the most favorable mo
ment for eonFUltlnz the general electorate and
the prestige of the Prime Minister, and the Min
istry had steadily declined. Lord Beaconsfleld
walte.l too long and was finally overwhelmed
with defeat.
The Unionists are now clamoring for a khaki
election. They began by talking about an ap
peal to the country in October; but since the
by-elections m the Isle of Wight and In South
Manchester, they have favored the winding up
of the business of the session soon after the
Whitsuntide holidays and an Immediate disso
lution of Parliament, with the general elections
In July. The fall of Pretoria, which now seems
imminent, will Impart a new impulse to this
movement for an appeal to the country when it
Is pulsating with patriotism and Its imagination
is lighted up with the glories of he new im
-•p«»rlaU«m. The annexation of the Orange Free
State has been proclaimed, and unless all signs
fail, it will be speedily followed by a similar an
nouncement in the Transvaal. There will be
peace with two new colonies, and the question of
race ascendancy in nth Africa will be settled.
Unionists who recall Lord Beaconsfleld's error
of judgment after th.- Congress of Berlin are
eager for an appeal to the country in the hour
of triumph, when khaki is th» only color In
eight. The} assert that it Is one of the crown
ing opportunities of ; titles The country is
exultant over the victories of th* British arms
and has not begun to pay the costa of the war
In Income taxation. It can be confidently ex
pected to vote for Lord Roberts and Mr. Atkins.
While the entry of Lord Roberts Into Pretoria
will offer an unrivalled opportunity for securing
a fresh lea-'e of political power, there are ob
jections to a khaki campaign In July, and these
are expr*-ppe(3 in conversation and In print with
true British conservatism, a sober m'nd^d na
tion, it is urged, dislikes theatrical politics and
claptrap devices. A cautious writer in "The
Times" asserts that the Ministerial demand for
a new electoral mandate will come with gr^atT
force after a provisional government has b«"n
Fet up in the Transvaal and the terms of settle
ment have been definitely formulated; and in
regard to the question of popularity, it Is urged
that even if the present enthusiasm cools down
somewhat. It will •.. heated up again when the
troops return in October. Mr. Gladstone was
once described by I»rd Randolph Churchill a«
an "old man in a hurry," arid the gib*- has not
been forgotten. Staid old fashioned Tories are
expect Lord Salisbury to hold back the Hot
ppurs in his party and to avoid any unseemly
haste in aging on the general elections. They
are ermfid'-nt thnt he will resist th» temptations
of political melodrama and not appeal to th-3
country until it in In a position to pass Judgment
not only upon the conduct of the British soldier
in a long and trying campaign, but also upon
the conditions of the general settlement by
which the welfare of South Africa is to be se
One point which is rnß<!e by tiolltical tactlc)a.ns
on the Unionist side is that the I,ll>eral Dpposl
almosl h^ dei irallzed us <jeneral Botha's

trlun:; I well organized Ministerialists.
This is probably tru<-, but a sudden manoeuvre,

to rally tbe Liberals, and the Unionists in this
way r.-iv overreach themselves. Already there

All th« «c questions are discussed nightly In the
smoking room of the House of Commons and in
th« political dubs, and there is a sheaf of ru
mors respecting the retirement of Lord Halls
bury and the i organization of the Cabinet. it
Jfl asfiumed 'hat the Prime Minister will be eager
to take advantage of a golden opportunity for
■withdrawal from public life. He has brought to
a close a great campaign for the defence of the
Empire. The Unionist party Is at the zenith of
Its popularity. The. prestige of his Ministry is

the public stage. With the Increasing; burdens
of old aj;e. the responsibilities H n 1 anxieties of
the Prime Minister have become we'lniL-h In
tolerable during the last year, and he now has
an opportunity for retiritiK from the Foreign
Office and for relinquishing th>- direction of the
Government when hin fame as a state^nian is
s<< ure. when the Empire is at peace, and when
his part}' is united and well Intrenched in the
strongholds of political power. The club f?-s
pips rmke ..Mt an unanswerable case in favor „f
the Prime Minister's retirement, but they leave
out of account his own sense of public duty hti 1
nviral obligation. His own reserves of popularity
and pres-jij-f. he may consider entirely at the
command of the Queen anil of the Empire, and
If these have been increased by the successful
campaign in Bouth Africa, so also have his ob
ligations to sacrifice personal Inclination ani

Ijord Salisbury knows, moreover, how difficult
it will be for him to arrange th» succession with
out weakening his party and exciting dissen
sions. Lord Curzon, who would be his natural
successor in the Foreign Office, is in India. Mr.
BaJfour lacks the hrtblts of industry and applica
tion required for diplomatic work, and, owing to
points of etiquette and ceremonials, he could not
be put in the Foreign Office without being
elevated to the peerage, and that would carry
him out of the House of Commons and leave
Mr. Chamberlain without a rival. The staid old
Tories of the Commons are not yet prepared to
welcome Mr. Chamberlain's leadership of the
Commons, and Mr. Balfour, even as Prime Min
ister, would be compelled to remain In the
House. Tin relations between these two em
ii.ent Unionists are cordia us colleagues in the
Unionist ministry, but Mr. Chamberlain can
hardly be depended upon to serve under Mr. Bal
four unless some compensations are offered, such
as the leadership of 1 he Commons or the Chan
cellorship of the Exchequer.

Policeman Henry Helnatz. of the Eldrldge st.

morning to Roundsman Hoffman and others that
Inspector Cross announced in the afternoon that
he would make a thorough Investigation of Th»
case. About 1:30 a m. two policemen were ptnmling
at Canal and Allen sts One of them accidentally
dropped bis night stick. The noise of the falling
stick sounded like a "rap" for assistance, and
Heinats came running down the street. When he

and he Jost his temper. Helnatz swore, and people
in the neiphliorhrod say th.-it be struck at the
policemen with his club.

Washington, June 0 (Special).— The Executive
Com -littee of the Interrmtlnnal Tnlon of Ameri
can Republics, which has been in session hero
for several weeks past, has finally arranged a
tentative programme for the piUance of the
Becond International congress. Since It Is be
yond the powers of the committee to name the
dJife and place of meeting for the proposed con
press, the^.- matters are still in abeyance; but
to prevent any unnecessary delay Secretary Hay.
at the suggestion of the committee, will tele
graph to the several nations comprising the
union asking those who decide to take part in
the coming congress to cable permission to their
representatives at Washington to designate the
time and place f"r its next meeting.

The Spanish pavilion at the Exposition Is
In the purest Spanish Renaissance school. Its
structural details have been copied from vari
ous artistic and historical monuments; the
front of the Alcala University, built by Rodrigo
r,n de Ontaflon in 1553; the principal front
of the Alcazai of Toledo, phi nned by the
celebrated Alfonso de Covarubias at the
request of Cb,' :r les V. when this monarch had
the ancient fortress, constructed under Alfonso
X. transformed Into a sumptuous palace: the
Salamanca University, one of the most finished
specimens of the stylo called "plntere.x < o," which
was rond«rpd celebrated during that epoch by
th" Pnnta Cruz of Toledo, by Enrique de Epas;
and finally the palnce of the Counts of Monterey,
b.-lonßing to the ducal house of Alba, remark
able for its magnificent crown shaped summit,
constructed in l. r ..^4. All these masterpieces
have Inspired the details of this palace's design,
and they have been most faithfully reproduced
in the actual building;.
The Interior has an immense hall whose sides
are formed of arcades, supported by columns.
Kivinß entrance to two vast halls ripht and left
of the pavilion. The staircase leading to the
first Boor, a repetition of the Ri-ound Boor as
regards situation of rooms opens into the great
hall. It is ornamented with bosses in exact
Imitation of the Alcala University, and in which
are seen the strangest and most curious- subjects
of Renaissance nrt.
The Spanish pavilion possesses no private
exhibition. It is entirely occupied* by a retro
spectlve art exhibition, for which the Queen of
Spain has lent the greater part of the artistic
marvi Is contained in the royal palaces, among
others the magntfl -tit collection of ancient
tapestries from the palace of Madrid. These
decorate all the wails of the pavilion. The most
: ■ ■'..• are th.ose that represent the history
of Rome, i mght by Philip II in 1550; "The Last
Supper," dating from 1531; "The Conquest of
Tunis," worked In poid and wool In 1546 from
