S somehow out of touch with his colleagues It

Many Tories exult this week over their ma
jority at the Winchester election but that Is
silliness on their part Winchester Is a fossil
ized borough wltn no political life whore no
voter believes in the secrecy ot the ballot and
where voting is done to please landlords or on
some Slocum cum Dodger point in local
political aspirations A brewer always hard
to beat lnt England was elected and there
were almost enough soldier votes all Tory of
course to account for the Increase in the Tory
majority Even the Times which has flashes
ot political fairness declares that no polltlca
significance attaches to tho result
Mr Gladstone who Is becoming a grander as
well as an older man all the time Is still at
Florence enjoying himself nnd seeing the I
eights with all tho enthusiasm of a Cooks

abroad lionized without limit and made to
play tho part of the principal point of interest
in Florence The Italians remember tho Orand
Old Mans services to their country when Italian
unity was only a patriots dream and they
have taken pains to prove their appreciation
Deputations loaded with speeches pour in on
him very plentifully and tell him in soft Italian
that history wU load him with glory when his
Tory detractors are long forgotten Gladstone

A fine performance in Ireland of the highly
successful Tory farce called Justice ter
minated at Portumna this morning Early in
to week Mr Wilfred Blunt in a published let
ter to the electors of Deptford for which con
stituency h is the Homo Rule candidate an i
nounced that he had received information that
the Judge who was to try his aopoal from tho
sentence of the Woodford magistrates had
made up his mind to deliver judgment against
him Everybody In Ireland knew the same
tin A little surprise was consequently
felt today when the Judge dismissed
Mr Blunts appeal and ordered him to
go to prison for the two months to which
prson
ho ha been sentenced for the dreadful crime
ot attempting to hold a public meeting In Ire
land While tho trial was a shameful travesty
of justice and similar burlesques are enacted
In every petty sessions court In Ireland day
After day without attracting much attention
probably not fewer than fifty honest Irishmen
have been sent to prison this week alone and
the number constantly increases As the reassembling
assembling of Parliament approaches Mr
Balfour Is anxious to do as much mischief
as possible while Ihls acts remain frdb
from criticism and denunciation in the
House of Commons Fortunately Mr OBrien
and Lord Mayor Sullivan will be out
of orison in time to take their places In Parlia
ment when they will speak with all the pres
ttee ol a series of demonstrations which are
wine organized In their honor by the British
democracy Addresses of welcome nnd sym

at which the train will stop on the journey
from Holyhead to London and on their arrival
In the metropolis thoy will be conducted

The now Presidents first grand reception
took place yesterday at the Elysoo All the
diplomatic corps had been invited to the dinner
that preceded it nnd on the whole everything
went off very well though as the palace was
open to anybody who ohooso to enter a few
visitors elected tn display1 their republican
sentiments by walking calmly post Mr and
Mrs Carnot without a look as though tho
Elysce wore a public hall The President is
evidently determined t make himself agree

receiving every Thursday evening This line
caused Paris tradesmen t grovel at htrieet
for the pomp which follows royalty and which
is loft out In republics does moro than anything
else to strengthen reactionary hankerings in
commercial Paris
On the other hand Carnot has stirred up
strong disapproval in financial circles for not
feeling sure of the French money market Ho
has had the wisdom to Invest about 1000000
of his large fortune In America

Hablo authority that young Prince William
has been so spoiled by the prospect of sudden
and unexpected greatness that ho has come
to believe himself a replica of Frederick the
Great and does little or nothing to rebuke the
general hostility to his mother tho Crown
Princess I is true that the Crown Princess U I
herself the decided personification of selfishness
after th model of her careful mother Queen
Victoria nnd that her great dread is that the
death of her husband may relegate her to
comparative obscurity by depriving hr of tho
title of Empress to which she has all her life
looked forward Strong evidence of sympathy
for the Crown Prince is sorrowfully furnished
by the manager of a famous Berlin restaurant
Unter den Linden O thlrtyono Christmas T
balls Ac which had been ordered there long in1
advance twentyeight hate been counter
manded on accouut of the Berliners disin
clination to make merry while their Fritz is ill
The other three festivities were weddings
which of course had to come off
Our enterprising young friend Prince Ferdi

Ferdinand Prince De Bui
Emperor signed Forlnand Prnce Du

answer addressed in Gelman to his High

Prlnco Bismarck Is still at Frledrichsruho al
though rumor has summoned him to Berlin
and even to Vienna a score of times since ho
returned to his favorite country seat after the
famous Interview with the Czar at which the
Orleonist plot was exploded I has beon
vehemently asserted too that the Man of Iron

that the time is not very fa distant when
however reluctantly he will b forced t lay
aeid > the ares o state Things a not quit
so bad as that but Prince Bleinarcka health Is
gradually becoming worse And sooner or later
ho will have become a chronic Invalid In
these circumstances bo has manfully looked
the future in thoJaco and has decided upon the
man who shall best serve Germany when his
own bands shall have dropped the reins of pow
er Count HatzieldtWlldenburg at present
German Ambassador in London is i the man
Count Uatzfoldt 0 I saw him in London a few
weeks ago is little more than 5 years of ago
tall loan with sharpout features close
cropped irongray hair and clean shaven save
for a big gray moustache a striking figure
and one to command attention In any assem
bly He Is an early riser of very frugal habits
and has when he likes to exert himself vast
capacity for business Shady in his morals
indifferent in regard to his pecuniary obliga
tions a staunch friend and good hater and
above all passionate in devotion to the Interests
of Germany such I the man whoso opinion
even Prince BUmarck is glad to ask and who
ono day will almost certainly be Chancellor ot
the German empire
Count Hatzfeldt comes from a remarkable
family A female member of his house was the
Countess Hatzfeldt who was the bonne ctnie of
Lasolle the founder of the now German social
democratic movement and who supplied the
funds for his defence when bo was arraigned
before 0 tribunal for propagating his revolu
tionary ideas Count Uatzfoldt entered the
diplomatic service about twenty years ago and
soon attracted Prince Bismarcks attention
Upon one occasion during the FrancoGerman
war when the Prussian Foreign Office officials
were worked like galley slaves Prince Bismarck
remarked that Hatzfoldt was the best horse in
his stables I Is well known that Prince Bis
marck never forgets persons who have proved
themselves useful to him and whom
ho can trust I was therefore no sur
prise when Count Hatzfeldt was appoint I
ed German Ambassador at Constantinople
There be initiated a policy which soon resulted
in the establishment of phenomenally friendly
and confidential relations between Germany
and Turkey From Btamboul Hntzfeldt was
transferred to the important post of Under
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Prince
Bismarck was at tjiat time suffering terribly
from neuralgia and other nervous complaints
which kept him away from Borlin and he felt
that Hatzfeldt was the only man whom ho could
trust to do his work out of reach of hU eyes
But tho transfer was not effected even by
Prince Bismarck without considerable trouble
Firstly Ilatzfoldts financial difficulties in
which ho had been involved for years wero
Apparently approaching a crisis and secondly
tho aristocratic and sanctimonious clique at tho
Berlin court professed to bo shocked at tho
Counts gallantries which bad ended In his
being divorced from his wife The prospect ot
having such a reckless gallant among them
shocked all tho old dowagers of Berlin and It
is said offended tho sense of propriety of tho
Empress Augusta But Prince Bismarck tri
umphed and Hatzfeldt was duly installed in
tho Foreign Ofllcu and loon proved iuvajuablo
to his thief When tho Important moment
I
came which tho Chancellor deemed propitious
for drawing England Into the German alliance I
ance Hatzfoldt was selected fur the vork I
Count Munstor being unceremoniously trans
ferred to PArs to mako room for the t younger
and energetic and fur abler

Hatzfeldt justified the confidence of his chief
for as all the world knows England at the
present moment It not uu actual member of
the German league of peace is at any rat its

You have bon Informed by cable this week
of tho arrest lt Zurich with dynamite In their
possession ot KovinlUts Schroeder and Haupt
and of their prmed connection with the Ger
man secret polled department Inspired Ger
man newspapers have at length condescended
to take notice of the scandal They wisely ad
mit the facts but plead extenuating clrcum
j
stances and In doing so thy lot out some additional
ditional and interesting details The imperial
German aparot police keep spies among revo
lutionary refugees in all foreign countries
America not excepted Herr Krueger Chief of
the Berlin Bureau occasionally goes abroad to
look up his agents and not very long ago he was
In Zurich and other Swiss towns The duties
of the police agents arc however strictly do
fined and I thoy exceed thorn they and not tho
department must b held responsible Tho
German police wore virtually driven to tho
policy of permeating revolutionary organiza
tions with their spies on account of the case
and secrecy with which some ot the earlier political
litical crimes wore committed For instance
thoy received practically no warning of the
first attempt against tho life of Emperor William
liam in 1878 Moreover I Is alleged that
France in order it possible to weaken the of
fensive strongthot tho Gorman empire actually
went so far n t subsidize agents whose chief
duty was to foster social democratic and
anarchistic movements in Germany This was
proved during investigation of circumstances
connected with the murder ot Police Inspector
Bumpf at Frankfort This ere was planned
by a committee of German Anarchists in Lon
don of which the French police agent the only
nonGerman member acted as Secretary Tho
shoemaker Llosko was the only ono of the
three actual assassins whom the Gorman
police succeeded In capturing and he was duly
hanged The other two escaped to France and
although full proof their guilt was submitted
to the French authorities Herr Krueger him
self visiting Paris for the purpose their extra
dition was refused and they are still at largo
in Franco and to all appearance well provided
with money Is It to b wondered therefore
asks the Gorman press that it was found
necessary for Herr Kruoser to have his secret
agents among the revolutionists
Wo cannot too much admire the thrifty econ
omy of Englands Queen At present there is
bitter grumbling below stairs at Windsor Bal
moral and Osborne Tho Queens servants
had fine new clothing given them in honor of
the jubie and gorgeous liveries were pro
vided for additions to the household staff ren
dered necessary by tho festivities Tho joy
which then burst forth has melted at the news
that the gaily dressed ones will be called upon
to receive only twothirds their wages to snake
amends for the additional outlay I Is fine to
be a Queens servant in red and all kinds of
colors and to have lions and unicorns on one
but it also has its reverses
In the way of very important court nows
there also comes Information that the unpleas
antness between the Prince of Wales and his
brotherinlaw of Battenbsrg has been made

has accepted an invitation to dine with tho
Prince and Its believed the incident is closed

anco
family believe that ho has met with foul play
or his booomo Insane and wandered off He
has bon greatly worried for some time by
business troubles arising from complicated
relations with the Bruntons who hud tho con
tract for that part of tho aqueduct upon which
the store Is situated
Ho was with the firm of Cornell it Carpenter
4 Jay stroot that had control ot nil the aque

some months he bought out Cornell Carpen
ters Interest and gave it la said I onethird
Interest In tho business to George Brunton
father of John Brunton who with Dennis
Ilyan forms the firm of John Brunton C
which had the aqueduct contract I is alleged
by Ackloys friends that this gift to Brunton 8r
was necossnry to secure tho business on Brunton
ACos par of tho aqueduct Tbestores business
amounted to 10000 a month It in one of the
order stores of which the aqueduct laborers
orer
complain of but It was necessary to accept
Brunton t Cos orders and at monthly set
tlements tho urn It is alleged would pay only
part cashand qivo notes for the balance Those
notes it Is i said accumulated until Brunton k
Co < owed Ackley tGOOOO or 70000 All of
Ackleys own money and tlOOOO of his wifes
wan sunk in this way and finally Ackloy Co
were forced to suspend with liabilities aggre
gating I is said much less than the Brunton
notes
Somo weeks ago matters wore complicated
by an application by Brunton Br for an in
junction to restrain Aokley from selling tho
store and for the appointment of a receiver to
settle the partnership accounts Aokloy the
day before the Injunction granted sold the
store to John Coylo another Cornell Car

asleep or into a stupor and was awakened with
vtl
difficulty Yesterday morning Mr Coyle had
tn send down town and asked Aokley to po
thinking it would take his mind from his
troubles If he got out of the store for I while
It could not b ascertained last night whether
he had transacted the business or not
His friends declare that thor WHS no reason
why be should have gone off nt this tlmo I in
rone tme
his right mind or should have beon particu
larly uneasy over his business us it was cer
tain thnt he could pay 100 cents on tho dollar
in time and In any event both his own and his
wifes family are in good circumstances and

New York has ever been conspicuous in the S t t

gress that ever assembled under it convened 4 15
in the State ot New York and in this very I

ceremonies and an appropriate demonstration
worthy ot the Interesting occasion and befit

OUR WONDERFUL SPEAKER SJ
We rejoice In the giowth and prosperity of
our great State Time young liepubhican Speak
or of the Assembly in his opening speech at
Albany the other day with undisguised alarm
referred to time marvellous Increase of popula I
tion In our great cities Alarming Indeed I to jj
the Republican party No ono else seems to b
frightened about it Democrats and inde
pendent citizens take a natural pride in the 21
growth and grandeur of our State and It is our
proud boast that we have an empire State with
6000000 of population free intelligent law
abiding citizens SSJ31
The attidude of the Republican party toward i
our great cities has naturally led it to besom S
jealous and distrustful of their growth and 1
prosperity I commend to the attention ol 1
Speaker Cole and his associates the recent
thoughtful utterances of that levelheaded and
inulllcetit Republican Congressman Mr Fitch p d
wherein be warns the bosses who now control
the Republican party In this State that they
must cease by their legislation to trout New
York city as a conquered province rather than 1a
as a component partof t ho 8 tut o if tbeyoxpeot
to maintain any Republican party hereafter In 4
this city They seem to forgot that when in t I I4
their partisan blindness and obstinacy they I
impose unjust burdens upon the people ot this
city they affect Republicans and Democrats r1
alike They forgot that while this city is the 4
Gibraltar of the Democracy they have done
much by their reckless legislation to make it so I
When a Democratic Governor proposed to
give the people of thin city which pays over
half the taxes of the State a representative
upon the State Board of Assessors and the Ji
State Board of Equalization the intelligent
and respectable Republicans ot this city have j I
failed to discover the political wisdom which
induced a Republican flenat to refuse to con
linn the nominee They cannot understand
why this city should be continually made the
target for every unjust discrimination by Re
publican Legislatures and hence the Republican S
can vote of this city Is gradually dwindling
away and will soon have to be counted among V
the scattering unless a now departure is de mi
termined upon 4
Permit mo to further notice the young
Speakers address He seems to be filled with
apprehensions concerning thn ability of his
party to grapple with the Important mentions I
that confront them Ho says Wo need wis
dom and at the same limo wo require courage W
Wo are glad that ho no thoroughly appreciates
the needs ot his party Last winter the
grand old party had plenty of courage but
ickod in wisdom It had tho same courage as
the bull that placed himself In front of thu 4
coming engine and looked discouraged after
the collision bad occurred After the recent S
election the party has lost Its courage and now
naturally doubts its wisdom I I
A newspaper bus well mild that more than
wisdom and courage the party needs common
honesty If It expects to retain the confidence
and respect of the poopln or even of Its own
followers it must IceiMlntn In tho Interests ot Jt
the people mind not specially against the Demo
cratlo party or against grunt Democratic cities
The terrified Speaker says that corpora S
tions grasping nail Belllnh are knocking at our
doors more loudly than ever for the passage of
corporate franchises unnecessary and unjust S
These grasping nml bullish corporations
seem to know exactly where to go when 11t
they want anything a Republican Leg
islature They hnock and the door Is
usually opened unto them They are
knocking more loudly than ever this
yonr because they Redo i to realize that their tA
special friend nru lu power and why should
they not cnmo In and make themselves at 1
home The truth is that the corporations
organized the Legislature sh weeks ago not
at the Capitol but at the Fifth Avenue Hotel
in this city The programme then marked out S
