Will Take the Shine Off the Other Bablea Ou the Block When She Appears in Public—General News Gleanings. Associated Press Dispatches. Nbw Yoek, Oct. 4. —The home of Grover Cleveland was stared at by many carious eyes today. The soft Indian Bummer air brought thousands to Cen tral Park, which is only a block from Cleveland's home. Hundreds sauntered from the park through Sixty-sixth street to view the house where General Grant was so long eick before going to the mountains to die, and where his widow now lives. Turning into Madi son avenue, the sight-seers strolled up the avenue to look at the house, whore, according to tho morning papers, the new-born baby was. Opposite the houso across the street, all through the afternoon were loitering curious people, who stopped in little knots and groups to look at the house, where open windows let in the soft air, which gently lilted the curtains behind them. There were many messages of congratulation during the day, but the doctor and messenger boys chiefly made up the callers. Word name out from the quiet house that the little one and her mother were in a satisfactory condi tion. The little one's grandmother (Mrs. Cleveland's mother) left the house for a brief airing during the afternoon. The most definite description of the child is to tho effect that the baby has light huzel eyes and there are indi cations that she wilt be a brunette. There is no doubt whatever that she will nave a dimple, if all the statements of those who have seen her are to be be lieved, because they all agree on that point. They also agree that she will be a beauty—not aa great a beauty as her mother, possibly, but still a beauty. The baby's outfit of wearing apparel is said to be a dream of tasteful elegance and millinery skill. She will have no use for these pretty things of silk and satin and velvet for some time to come, but when she do>B make her appearance in public, she is lisety to take the shine off most of "the babies on the block."

Four hundred and twenty-four lodges will be represented.

Emperor William's Plans Clev erly Frustrated. The Czar the Qneen's Partner in the Peace Conspiracy. Rusala's Friendship for Franca Es> plained—The Kaiser Obliged to Defer Operntlona—Salisbury Set Up the Job. Associated Preas DiaDatonoa. New York, Oct. 4.—The Berlin corres pondent of the Herald says: Had it not been for the excellent com mon sense of Queen Victoria and the sound judgment of the czar, who if the moment of emergency acted in perfect accord, Europe would perhaps at this very moment be in the throes of war. The facts are these: Last summer when Emperor William was at Osborne he one evening asked the queen to accurd him a cenSoVjutia! conversation upon a matter of the ut most importance. The request was accorded, and the emperor said in sub stance: "The situation in Germany is intol erable. It cannot last twelve months longer. The country cannot "bear the present financial strain required to keep up its present figlitingatrength. Social ism is daily assuming more terrible pro portions. Germany's allies, especially Italy, are no longer able to keep up the present pace. The strain is too givat on them. France, on the contrary, is he coming stronger and 'Stronger; but France is isolated. It is absolutely nec essary tha', Germany should seiae the first occasion to declare war upon her. The latest moment to which this can possibly be put off is the spring of '92 " The queen replied: 'As long as 1 live I tirnaly hope peace will be main tained, lam now old but still fuel that my last years shall not be saddened by more blosdohed flowing in Europe. The responsibility that rests upon you is a terrible one. It would, in my Opinion, be criminal for any sovereign or etates man to attempt to precipitate'events. Iv any case what you have said causes me the greatest uneasiness." The queen sent for Lord Salisbury and informed him of this straujre con versation and desired him to talk with the emperor about it. Lord Sitlisbifry replied: "I think if I attempted to dis cuss the question the emperor uiiuht cut matters short by taking me by the shonlder and pushing me out of'flw window. Besides, his majesty might do exactly contrary to what I might sug gest. There is, in my opinion, only one thing to do, write an autograph letter to the czar, telling him frankly what has occurred, and urging him, in the interest of the peace of Europe, to lose bo time in making a friendly advance toward France, in order to convince theemperor that Russia would hot consent to see France wantonly attacked, This would cause the emperor to reflect, and, in my opinion, this is the moßt effective way of preserving peace. It would be well if England should also simultaneously make an advance toward France." The queen at once followed Salisbury's advice, which result is already a matter of history. BRlllill AFFAIRS.
