There l reason to believe that the coarse
oftherimMli really dictated by Seore
tary.Evarts, It is known that Mr.
George Jones is on the most pleasant
personal relations with President Hayes
and bis premier; and there Is a report
current here that Mr. EvartH, owing to
the presidential contest, was paid re
tainers oy the New York Herald to fur
nish It wllb political Ideas on which to
conduct the canvass. The story la that
Mr. Bennett was not well satisiled with
his office advisers, as he made a number
ot mistakes touching the policy of tho
dsy. At one time, it is alleged, he con
sulted Mr. Dana ot the Sun as to Ihe pro
per course for the Herald to pursue In
given emergencies. It will be re
membered that Mr. Evarts began bis
career as !a journalist, and was
a writer on Park Benjamin's paper about
ihe time that A. Oakey Hall started on
his career as a writer. Tlie policy dicta
ted by Mr. Kvartstolhe Timet aims, It
Is said, to keeping in hnnd the discon
tented element of the Republican party,
so as to have them cast their votes on
the right side In the event of an election.
It is admit led that the Timtt is able and
bold in its new departure, and if is hoped
it will tefain sufficient influence over the
discontented Republicans to keep thom
within the party lines.

kars. The Danube is very high, and an ;
inundalon near Oltemtza Is much feared
by the Russians, as In that event they
would be obliged to remove their battei
ies now in that section to higher ground.
