was coming that several of the morning papers
actually appeared without Beaming to havo
noticed anti commented on tho paragraph
Chore Is considerable dlffernnpeof opinion as
to the real motives which Induced the Chancellor
br to take RO serious a step though there Is
but one unanimous belief viz thnt tho Em
peror will nnver grant the prayer ot lila India

the Emperor Prlucn Bismarck Is said to hate
also alleged Increasing III health In support of
his prayer but although his Highness IB

hat high and secret grounds of Htato policy fn
connection with the foreign affairs of tho em
pine Induced the Prince totnkn the step for
which Ills defeat In the Federnl Council offers
but nn ostensible motive On tho other hand It
must be again repeated that the Prlucna vexa
tion does not spring half so much from limo
mere rejection of tho stamp tax as from ito ob
viously unfair and Irregular way In which an
adverse voto is recorded against the three most
jownrful Btntes Prussia Bavaria ttnil Bnxony
In tIle outvoting of those kingdoms by a coal I
Ion of petty Slates headed tiy WUrtemberg the
Chancellor haul a painfully practical Illustration
ot what might bn accomplished on aiteatlotisof
infinitely graver moment than the Imposition of
a stamp duty and lie would therefore seam to
have promptly resolved to take time by thn torn
lock and dual with tile evil In Its Inception His
Highness however would not only seem toba
onrngnd at the successful opposition of the
mlddi and petty Stmittue hut also to be exna
sorated with thn contradictory advocacy of cor

tint In his Tinder lloxTho Smoke hl
Filled the Ilulldlna A terdnyIt Origin 4
Between 4 nnd 5 oclock yesterday after
noon Madison Square Garden began to fill with
a blue smoke At first time men connected with
the walk supposed that the enormous con
umptlon of cigars was the cause of tho smoke
and the police wore requested to stop men from
making In the Garden The smoke soon grow
thicker and heavier than even walkingmatch 4
cigars would make It Windows In the root
rind ildos of tIme bulldlne were opened anti nn
investigation of the cause ot the smoke began
At 5 oclock Mr Curtis came to the reporters
Innd which was almost deserted at thnt hour
nod said quietly Thoro came near being tibia
0 Hows that 7 inquIred BON reporter
Tom Davis and John Btedlkurthought there
vas something burning and hogan to hunt foi
it They soon found a smouldering fire undoi
tha seats among a lot of rubbish and stamped II
out just In tlmo The smoke had cot so thick I
couldnt see that end of tho Garden pointing
otho reserved seats attbo Mndteon square end
An hour after this two reporters visited the
nrgo space under the Twontyooventh street
aide of the Garden They walked the whole
length without seeing anybody Much of the
pace under the thousands of satfl was filled
wIth pine boards and lumber branding of the
rustic arbors that were one so plentiful In tie
Inrden and light ttondnn docorntlons usml In p
loArlon balls Tlierotvas a very perceptible
mellfof smoko ns from Phnrred wood nfli >
he fire had been extlngulhhnd Whllo looking
this rubbIsh a man wns observed coming In
at the Fourth avenue pnd with n long polo In
tin hand having is cite lIghter nt thin end of It
Hum began lighting gas burners in the long pas
ncnAro you a watchman inquired TIIK Botl
No replied the man I have chnrgo ol
he building But there ought to Imsonm One
tern There are men paid to bo on duty all tha
time but they got off among tha tents looking
at the wnlknrs
What la your name
I Well Mr Mackay It la said that there was a
fire discovered hero an hour ago do you know
anything about It
No I have just come If a fire should atari
here it would burn like a titular box
Mnsars Davis and Stodlker on being quietus
toned suit that tho smoku arose from n lira 0
being stnrtod in nstotu underneath that tin
pIpe was phoked up that they had put out the
fire nnd there was no danger
There were at iuitst l t 3 OOU persons In the Gar
don At the time Probably not any of them
knew hitacamise of the smoke
During om of tho groat walks n year or so
ago part of a temporary balcony nrootnd by
some soeloty for dining purposes and totally
unsafe for occupation by n dense man ol
people gave way precipitating forty or fifty
persona head first to time main hoer The build
nir wits not packed nt the time but them was
such a rush for tho nnrrow winding entrnne
nt thn MadIson square end that several wero In
juiruud A rush wns also mnd for the Fourth
avenue end of the Garden where thn outlet ll
atlll narrower A few coolheaded persons 4
Rtoppnd the panic or there might have boon a
serious loss of life
The desire to obtain entranCe to the Garden
is so great among the impncunlnus moss ol
young men and boys that the entrance nnd
outlets liar benn mnde narrow and tortuous
If f a nanla should occur by an alarm of tInting
ho giving WilY of any part of thin old galleries
which do not seem any too strongly braced un
lernenthn fearful loss of lift would probably
be the result
