In those columnB n wook ago. tho Tory major

Ilulors managed to out It almost In two. The
Importance of this result enn bo Judged from
the fact that should tho samobtatoof thlnge, or
one even nporoaebing. provall at a general
election, homo rule, and the Grand Old Man
would wen Into po'worbjr an absolutely over
whelming majority. The Tories inndeu most
desporato electoral fight to loop tholr ma
jority of 1880. and thus deprive tho Home
Riilora of the morel Tlctory which ther
bnvo sained Id spite of all. The Tory candi
date for popularltr'ssake announced hie Inten
tion to voto against the von and wheel tax, a
Tory measure, and the obnoxious tax was
finally abandoned by the Government on tho
jj nifcht before election. Any number of noble
' lords and grand ladles sent their carriages to
convey humble Tory voters to tho poll, end

Tho women's rights advocates may rejoice,
tor the Prime Minister of this Glorious coun
try has this week announced that be Is with
them. This Is a part of his speech at Edin
"I earnestly hope tho day Is not far distant
when women also will beur their share In vot

determining the polloy of the country. 1 can
conceive no argument by which theyaro ex

It Is necessary to add, however, that tho no
ble marquis is probly moved less by a desire to
see the wrongs of females righted than by
longing for more Tory votos, for it 1b assorted,
end doubtless vory justly, that tho effect of
giving the franchise to women would bo that
of strengthening the Tories at a time when
they need strengthening very much,
England Is worrying about affairs in Earpt,
and even the Queen has written to ask the
Sake of Cambridge, who probably knows as
little an herself, why the Soudanese Keep on
firing at Suakln all the time. An English
regiment and some mounted infantry havo
been ordered to go to the belengured city and
holp the Egyptians who are defending it, and'
it Is very possible England has another email
Soudan war on her hands, for fanatical Arabs
are good Centals. This English interference
on behalf of tho Khedive la encouraging to the
Itotbschtlda, mid. English, financiers woo own,
u Egyirton papor, but distressing to the rest of
, Englishmen, and it has caused considerable
tronblo in the Houbo of Commons.
The next worry or the Englishmen Is the
doings along the coast of Zanzibar. It has
boen made apparent by Bismarck's own con
fession that he bullied Salisbury into taking a
band in the anti-slavery bloekade which is
really meant to protect Germany's commercial
interests, and John Bull is tearful of being
dragged much deeper into the thing than be at
first bargained for. France te Irritated and
Oermanyls exultant In proportion at a coalition
which has modo England n tool of Germany's
colonial policy, and even among Salisbury's
supporters scarce any'one has a word to say in
defence of the alliance on the African coast
France, which, as a nation, finds entertaln
, tnent In everything, la enjoying the fights be
tween Deputies, outpourings of abuse, and
harmless little duels, the Bouianger divorce,
and prospects of a big row oyer tbo semi-Re-publican,
semi-Communist demonstration at
the tomb of Baudln to-morrow. Thore Is a
possibility that -something exoltlng may hap
pen, though, through being anticipated, the
popular explosion Is much less apt to occur.
The Bouianger divorce Is thoroughly unim
portant, as things of that sort do not affect the
atanaing oz puduo men in .trance, ana it nas
pot much in it It appears. In a few words,
that Mme. Bouianger, for very good reasons,
did not care to live with her gallant and much
admired husband, but that, being a good
Catholic, ehe would not apply for a divorce or
consent to one being obtained. Now. Bou
ianger, who pitifully declares that such n life
is unpleasant Is trying to force a divorce to
regularize his position.
Little German and Austrian newspapers
have been having a fierce time, each threaten
ing to burst up the triple alliance If Its rival
did not apologize, and the English correspond
ent at Berlin and Vienna hove been getting
much excited about nothing, as is their wont
Bismarck Is not particularly worried because a
Viennese editor shows how easily an alliance
could be patched between France, Austria, and
Russia to revolt In Germany's destruction.
To-morrow Francis Joseph, Emperor of
Austria, celebrates the anniversary of the for
tieth year of his reign. A most tremendous
amount of nonsensical gush has been poured
out In honor of the occasion, and every possi
ble ridiculous story ever told has been raked
up sod freshly aired. Emotional writers are
narrating bow the Emperor cried all night
when he beard of the frightful loss of life at the
burning King Theutre. how be gets up at i and
works till pretty near that hour next morning
t State affairs, how he never was happy until
he married his wire, the beautilul Elisabeth,
and how he has been blissful ever since (which.
by the way, Is not true, for they are never
together when they can possibly help it and
are notoriously at loggorlieads), and how he Is,
in short a model to be copied by every other
Inhabitant on this globe from Emperors down
Aa a matter of fact the Emperor has been
lucky in being u negative character, allowing
vents to take their oonrse, and not ruining his
own prospects ia life by putting his head In
dangerous places. He has shown great good
eensu on this particular occasion by declaring
tbut It was sheer nonsense to spend millions In
celebrating the fortieth )enr of his reign nud
by dcclluiug to receive even tolegromn of con
grat illation. As n result, municipalities und
private Individuals have llrtened to his r--quests
that (heir loyalty should tiiko.thc form
of charity, and ao.ooa.ooo florins have already

Thore Is vory good reason to bellove that tho
lndlsiofltlon of the German Emperor, publicly
announced as tbo result of n cold, Is In reality
n manifestation ot the hereditary disease which
for ninny ream baa been apparent In u trouble
of the car, nod for which ho used dally.'whcn
occupying n less exalted position than at pres
ent, to consult a (olobrnted specialist In Unter,
Den Linden. Tbo fnctthat it has been officially
announced that the onr troublo has nothlug to
do with theEmporor'a illness lscalaulntcd to
make one bellove nil tho moro firmly that It
has. Tho Emporor will not go out for eomo
time yet, and no ordinary cold, it Is
certain, could keep a man of his onetgy
vory long confined. It Is very possible, as I
hno before suggestod in roferrtug to this
trouble of tho Emperor, that all tho specula
tion as to the fnto ot the German empiro in his
Hands may be pottlcd by his premature dlnp
pcarnnce from the throne. Tho statement Is
nlrtn.ty going about that the Emperor's latost
baby has inherited his father's disease. It li
tcry feeble, and is alto declared to Buffer from
a malformation ot the left arm similar to that
of tbo Emporor.

The youthful Emperor or China evidently
believeB In marriage. A bride bos been picked
out for him, and tho young ruler is to be mar
ried on a tremondous scale, l'repniations are
not quite comoleted, but they are sufficiently
advanced to show that his Celestial Majesty's
experiment as to tho advisability of getting
married will cost at least M0.O00.000.
Things aro not quite to smiling for tho King
of Servla. lie has, however, shown presence
of mind under perilous circumstances. Seeing
that the elections to the SkuDtschlna In tho
country had boon ngolnst him while those in
the cities wure In bis favor, ho calmly issued a
ukaso doing away with tho country elections
nnd ordering a now lot on Doc. 16. At the same
time he confirmed tho favorable elections In
tho cities, and meanwhile lie wilt appoint 1.20O
inspectors to watch the polls In bis Interests, a
state of things which ought to insure eucocss
it there is any virtuo In energy.
Tho Queonof Servla has not yet succeeded
In getting any practical display ot Bjmpnthr.
Her Intention now Is to punish the King by
publishing her correspondence with him,
which. It seonis, would not bo edifying. Mrs,
Tortor Burrall was up again yestorday before
the Bankruptcy Court, and figured as a mod
ern Becky Jones. Ebo declared she had a very
bli: property indeed about Niagara Falls mil
lions of it, In fuct-but doclined to glre up

told she might have eventually to gotoprlnon

Americans to know that Lord Sackvillo. though

It Is a fortunate thing sometimes to be an old
lion tamer. Mr. Pizon. a favorite with Parisian
falrgoers. knocked down and kleked a gentle
man who diminished bis profits by exhibiting,
a young women who could change from a
statue Into a song-end.dance artist. Mr. Pizon
was reprimanded and let off easily by the
Judge on account of bis marvellous ability to
tame savage beasts. A bsIo of autographs in
Paris this week ebows that rare things la that
way can be had cheap, and also that Henry IV,
had lots of time for kissing. A batch of bis
love letters wns sold,' at the end of each of
which ho sent many thousands of kisses.
The Whltechapel murderer is still at liberty
to plan freah crimes, and meanwhile individu
als of every class are being arrested and taken
to some police station as Jack the Hipper. The
iletliodiit Timtt of yesterday plnintively apolo
gizes to Its readers for an insufficient report of
a certain teachers' meeting, on the ground that
its reporter, tent to attend tho pioceedlngs,
was twice arrested as the Whltechapel mur

I have before called attention to the bar
barously excessive punishment Inflicted upon
children for trifling crimes by English magis
trates. It appears from a report made in the
House of Commons two days ago there are now
in prison 233 children between tho ages of 12 and
IS. Ono of the most ordinary crimes for which
country magistrates punish the unlucky little
creatures Is that of pulling up and eating tur
nips on somebody else's estate.

Hon. Levi P. Morton. Vice-President elect, in '
possesion of tbo field. The conference line ,-J
definitely sottled ono point, and that is tluttlTr. ''

It Ib authoritatively stated also that any r- ''39
ports tending to show that tho Eastoro states- "si
men entertain unpleasant thoughts concern-
lng tho pilgrimages of W'oatern statosmea to ' ;S
Indianapolis are tintruo. Tha story bore writ- ,"a
ton is not brisod ou hearsay or gossip ; It comes JS
from headquarter.-, nnd thoro are letters from
Gen. Harrison to tbo wise men ol the East and ,f
from these wlso mo:i to each other, to back It .f
up. dt Is truothat Uen. Harrison has not yet 4c

appear vory slondor. '
"It is time that the oxact truth should be

among the mombors of the IlIgFour. Post!- ?
bly tho exception to this sweeping statement .ig
concerning tho cordiality of the Big Four l '.jjii
Warner Miller. Mr. Miller is tho mostdieap- 'i
pointed man in this State to-day. and it looks 'kw
naif ho would romolneo. There Is no strength 'TI
in bis claim to tho Treasury, and bit warmest "';
friend, Dr, Dopaw. Is with Mr. Blaine, Mr. Mor- f
ton, 8enator Hiscock, and Mr. Piatt In saying i i
so. Tho fact that Mr. Dopew Is for Piatt la '" 8
(lunicuioriy signiucnau ail 01 tne gentlemen '
I havo mentioned are friendly enough person- ,,'SS
ally to Mr. Miller, but they regard him na a 'V-si
to mnko a Buecees. Before he wus noulnnted ' ,jj
for Governor he was emphatically told thai ho " J
could not defeat Gov. Hill on a high license is- A
buo. Ho protested that be could. His friends , jf
decided tq lot him hnVe his way about putting a -
high llcenBo plauk In bis platform, but beggod , ,,
him not to mnko It the subject of hie campaign ,' ' jj
Bpoecbee. They pleaded with him to make the ,,
protection litBue in the national platform pais- - 4 1
mount, but he stubbornly refused. The Be- ',
pnbltoan Inn keepers in the interior did not '
object to a high llceuso plank in the State , I
platform, but they wore violently offendoil br '.;&
Ur, Mllibr'sUbuElro speeches ngnlnat saloon
Vfepers, It li urged for Mr. Mlllerthat' he. . "iffll
medo a bravo ilghfnnd 'fell at the breast- "t&
works.' This is not so. Ho made a reckless if
fight and. like tho child, stuck his band into I
the fire only to ba scorched. HI campaign
was conducted without tact or discretion, and, !'
of course, bo was defeated, and he has ouly '. t
himself to thank for it There are many '
men In both parties who believe l.e jj
could have defeated Gov. Hill it he hud - (
not made his insulting speeches about the ';t
liquor dealers. It Ir also not true that ho , IS
pulled down tho Prohibition vote by his high 0:-i
license issue, as the returns show that tho jn
Prohibition vote this year was 2,000 greater , S
than In 1884. Mr. Miller gets bis figures for hts "I
claims regarding the reduced Prohibition vote '
from last year's, returns. This Is not a fair 1
standard to accept
"One thing more about Mr. Miller nnd bis
claims. It was knowu nt Chicago, at the meet
ing of the Big Four when it was decided to
swing tbe Now York delegation for Harrison, '"
that Mr. Miller gave only n temporary acqui- ;
eocenes. Mr. Depow, Mr. Piatt and Senator j
Hlsoock were emphatic In their determination '1,
to support narrison, whoteae Mr. Miller lelt A'
the conference and told his friends that it wot v ,
only a temporary measure, and that the

Sherman, Mr. Miller's first and only can- ''
dldato In tbe Contention. Mr. MlUor even ''
sent an explanatory telegram to Senator ','
Sherman, reiterating his statement thai the fl
New York delegation in supporting Harrison
did it only from temporary expediency, and
that bo (Sherman) would snrely be nominated.
No, sir. Mr. Miller has no claims to the Treas- '
ury portfolio. Hebaahad his chance, and been ,
defeated on an Issue of bis own making. He -'
shouldn't complain cow or organize meetings '
of1 the Union Leagne Club in eunport of Ms
candidacy. Mr. Depow has also had his v
chance. That Is represented by hla boom v
at Cblcaga Bat It la just to eay . ;
of' Mr. Depew that he doasnt want j
anything j'ust now ; moreover, be will not apeak
a word In support of Mr, Miller's claim to tho
Treasury. Senator HlMock Is all fixed with "
his Feat In the Senate and the promise ot re
election. Mr. Morton is all right Be Is tho
Vice-President AH three, Mr. Depew, Senator v
Hiscock. and Mr. Morton, favor Mr. Piatt, and .,"
there are hundreds of letters from prominent
Itepubllcnns all over the State backing up
Piatt for tho place. These letters sny that Mr.
Piatt, Mr. Denew. and Senator Hiscock did the
right thing at Chicago toward killing old feuds '
In the party and reuniting It ao that victory
waa almost an assured foot
" The tatement has been made that oeeacia
of hts place as President of tbe United States
Express Company Mr, Platt U Ineligible, for
the Treasury. H$ can resign as President of
the United States Exxpreas Company by too
men scratch ot a pen. But this would not be
at all necessary, as the Treasury regulation
raised against Platt applied only to Importers,
Piatt's business la purely a domestlo affair,
but If there waa avert tba slightest queatioa
about it be would resign to take tha Treasury,"
It was suggested that Mr. Miller aa a papttr
and wood palp manufaeturer was very mucfli
more Interested In tbe Treasury regulations
and revenues than Mr. Platt .What is to be
come of John Sherman was a subject Tint
