Cervantes is appointed reader to her Majesty, L,nd she, girlishly conceiving a fondness for him, gives him a lace handkerchief on whicii she has writtem : " A Queen loves thee, yet art thou no King.*' Thus is given foundation for any number of comical, sentimental, and picturesque incidents, which the author has usal most cleverly to a pleasing finale. of a to A Political.

MEN AT DAGGER* POINT* o <1 TOE TARIFF IMGE. 20.— Cool headed Democrats, whether in favor of or opposed to tariff legislation at this session, are in a state of great anxiety account of the bitter hostility be tween tbe Democratic friends and op ponents of tbe Morrison bill in tbe House. A veeran Democrat te-day said tbe situation reminds him oi that which preceded the beginning of the Presidential contest of 1860, and he faction or the both factions con Washington, March on fears that unless one other surrenders cede enough to bring them to common i round, the coming Presidential cam paign will result in overwhelming dis aster to tbe Democratic party, as did that of 1860. Democrats who are opposed to the Morrison bill seem to be more deter mineil than ever to put forth every ex ertion against it. The statement that they will consent to its consideration, aud content themselves by voting against it iu Committee of the Whole, is denied by several of their leaders. One of them to-day said : " What right have Watterson, Carlisle, Morrison and com pany to try and declare that we are not Democrats, simply because we opi>ose Morrison's bill ? We do not say they are not Demo crats because they advocate it, and would have no right to say so. We con tend that there is room in tbe Demo cratic party for men who differ on this question, and that Morrison and his friends have no right to apply this test of party orthodoxy to us simply because they are a majority." These remarks indicate the radical difference between tbe two factions. The free traders—or "revenue re formers," as they prefer to style them selves—are contending for what they seriously and earnestly believe to be a vital political principle, while mem bers of the opposing faction are chiefiy anxious to dodge tbe tariff question al together. A free trade Democrat to day said : "We are going to fight it out on this line. If we are l*eaten in the House we will appeal to the National Convention, and if we are de ill break up the rule um out of the party, feated there we party." Another said: " We may lose this Presidential elec tion, but we will have a principle te contend for, and will win in 1888. We may lose in the East, but we will more than offset out losses by gains in the West ami South. Tbe caucus will pass the resolution to be otter d by Speaker Carlisle. House after that, Randall and his crowd will be responsible, aud they will be punished. There will not be room for tbe Democratic party." It is given out that the caucus may decide that it. will l>e wise to drop the free list. It is also said That, Chairman Morrison will press the bill for con sideration iu tbe House soon after the caucus. The Republicans oppose it at every stage.
