London Cable:The death of Emperor
William promises to be the next great sen
sation in Europe,... Its' immediate political
effect will be to bind Germany and England
together in a very close, union. Thecrown
princess of England will beihe empress*" of
Germany, and the coming emperor
is known
as' an affectionate friend of the prince of
Wales and of the queen. Nothing more op
portune for the new Tory government of
England could possibly occur. It is ru
mored that all tnis was counted uponinthe
very highest circles of the two realms before
Lord Salisbury finally consented to take
office, and that it very largely influenced
his decision. There are hints of a second
treaty of Windsor that had really more to
do with the change' in the administration
than the vagueandshadowy promises made
by Mr. Gladstone. According tothisstory,
Ae Crown Princess 'Victoria assured her
other that the death of the emperor was
ily a question of a few years that
~ron the accession of Frederick William
the imperial throne of Germany, the in
inience of Prince Bismarck would cease to
be a predominant and disturbing element
in European politics, and that if England
would heartily support thecolonizingenter
priees of Germany, which are Frederick
William's pet fads, there would be no oppo
sition to an Anglo-German alliance, as
against Russia in Afghanistan, France in
Egypt, and the foes or rivals of England
everywhere. All this being represented
to Lord Salisbury, opened up to him
a prospect of being able to straighten out
the' foreign relations ^jvhich had been
left in a seemingly hopeless tangle by Glad
stone, to safeguard the British empire in
India, to retain control of Egypt, and gen
erally to restore the imperial prestige of
England through'^he world. It was this
line of Argument, it is said, which not only
decided Lord Salisbury to accept the office
of premier, but caused him to adopt the
unprecedented course of combining with it
the office of secretary of state for foreign
affairs, so as to keep the delicate negotia
tions of the next few weeks or monthscare
fully within his own control.

The June debt statement, issued July 1
closes the accounts of the government for
tlie fiscal year ended June 30. The de
crease in the debt reported for the year is,
inround numbers, $65,500,000. Large as
this sum appears, it is far below that for
either of.the five preceding years, the aver
age for'which was nearly $116,000,000.
An examination of the column of interest
bearing debt shows that tlie reduction for
thie past year was but $30,412,850, while
the reduction in the debt on which
interest.bas ceased was $15,600,000. The.
cash balance now li^ld in excess of thatheld'
one year ago, added to theactualreductioh
makes the reduction reported in this state
ment. There has been no change in the fig
ures of the bonded debt since November
last, no call for three per cent, bonds hav
ing been made since
that date.' When the last
call for bonds was made the treasury bal
ance was $144,000,000.'
The available balance on handisthe larg
est ever held by the treasury, compared
with Jan. .1,. 1879, when specie payment
was resumed. It shows an increase of $30,
000,000 and the
gold Jund-nOt coyered by'
outstanding certiflcfites .'was then ^only
$111,000,000,whereas itis now over $120,

after deducting^ allfp^t&andihg liabilities,
$100,000,000 ?6freserYe'attd'$S2,000,000
for "unavailable assets*" the net balance is
nearly $41,000,000.
During the 'yfear there has been a decrease
intheamount of bonds held by the treasury
to redeem national banknotes of $22,000,
000, the amount now held for this purpose
being$312,000,000. Theaggregatereceipts
for the twelve months show a falling off of
$26,000,*000 compared with the preceding
twelve months, bf which loss $14,000,000
comes from customs and $9,000,000 from
