No Available Man to Take Mac- Donald's Place. y Religious and Racial Factions Apt to Cause Dissension. A New French Republic Hinted At—The Dominion in Mourning; for the Departed Statesman. Associated Press Dispatches. New York, June 7.—The Herald'a Ottawa dispatch states that the removal of Sir John Mac Donald from the affaira of the dominion has created anxiety concerning bis successor that is not con fined to the conservative party alone. ' "The more thoughtful of the party are filled with deep concern, while premoni tions of troublous times pervade the public mind. It ia not so much ques tions of trade and tariff that are causing public anxiety and an eager inquiry for a competent leader. There are questions coming up upon which the religious pas sions, always ready to be touched off into an explosion, are expected to break with intense strife. There is also a fast de veloping ambition of the French race, which has already laid plans for estab lishing another French republic upon the northern portion of this continent. This element, Sir John was always able to keep in check, although it required every effort of his resourceful mind and many draughts upon the public treas ury. The opinion is now stronger than ever that the government of neither party can much longer har monize the different race elements. The French people have become pros perous, and with fine advantages for education, the younger generation ia growing more and more restless, and chafing under the treatment which they consider confines theirnatural ambition. To their strong racial prejudice ia added the difference in religion. The tumult caused last year by the discussion of the Jesuitestate bill, showed tbe fury of this religious passion. The effort of the Manitoba legislature to abolish separate schools and use a dual language, ia sure to continue as a disturbing elment. The Catholic party feel their strength and have no hesitation in demanding the rights that they believe to be due to them. In the discussion of the sue ceesorship, they are making their influ ence felt. Their choice is Sir John Thompson, who ia a Roman Catholic. The Protestant element want Sir Charles Tupper, and in case he expresses a wish to remain in England, where, it ia said, he has an appointment, to the peerage, the second choice of that wing of the party ia said to be Hon. Mac kenzie Powell, minister of customs, and head Orangeman in Ontario. Thus at the very outset, a bitter contest is pre dicted. It ia said Sir John expressed a wish during the last campaign that Tupper should be his successor, and heia aaid to be the choice of the party in all the provinces except Quebec. If he is willing to take up the tangled course of affairs where Sir John left them, be will in all likelihood be the next leader of the party. (Noaely connected with Sir John in all affaira of state, he is better prepared, probably, than any other man in the party to meet the emergency that must arise. CANADA'S GRIEF.

The article continues: "Let the Americans take our ship and our arms, but let them reflect that they leave nailed in the hearta of three million men the sentiment of having been de ceived in their hopes, and of having loat faith in the nobleness of mind and lib erality of the sentiments of the govern ment at Waßhington." „ the insurgent cause- hopeless. Paris, June 7. —The Chilean legation has received an official note, issued at Santiago, by a so-called delegation of congress, representing that the revolu tion is without moral authority; that the insurgents of Tarapaca lack author ity, and have no means with which to make an expedition into the populous parts of Chile, and that the government army numbers 30,000 soldiers and 10,000 gend'armes, well equipped and discip lined, while the revolution army con sists of only 5000 demoralized men.

London, June 7. —The thoroughfares of London were strangely quiet today, owing to the absence of omnibuses. There was a plentiful supply of cabs, however, and the Londoners accepted the discomfort of the situation with good humor, but on the resumption of business tomorrow there promises to be some hearty grumbling. About twenty vehicles of the Road Car company and a few of the General omnibus company, ventured out with "blackleg" drivers, but many of these drivers, after experi encing the taunts and jeers of the strikers, abandoued the attempt after the first journey, and this afternoon the Road Car company called in all its cars, leaving traffic to occasional "pirates" who did a good business at enhanced fares. The railways, river boats and cabs reaped a benefit from the strike. The strikers were generally orderly, only two untoward accidents being re ported.

Some strikers cut the traces of two busses at Marble arch and overturned them. The men have abandoned their demand for an increase of wages for the present.
