FACING CRISIS. Veto Bill to Be Returned to j Unenlarged House of ; Lords. CABINET'S POLICY OUTLINED! It Measure Is Rejected Parlia . mcnt Probably Will Be Prorogued. London, August ij.?The lower tem? perature outside Westminster has not moderated the vagaries of the "mld bummer madness" within. A crisis In the fortunes of both ministry and op? position is impending this week, but the best Informed observers are vague and uncertain In their forecasts. The majorities for the government in the House of Commons and against it in the House of Lords on the mo? tion of censure will be large but Incon? clusive, Mr. Asqulth will not have a deserter among the coalition forces, and Lord Curzon may address the I largest body of peers seen in session , since the rejection of the home rule bill in 1S93. Mr. Baltour may deny that ne has declined to attempt the formation of en alternative government, and Mr. Asqulth is likely to admit, under pres? sure of close questioning, that thr?re was an understanding with the King last November respecting guarantees, and that It was based upon the result of the elections m the end of the year. Both the prince minister's request for guarantees and the King's acquies? cence will be justified by the minis? terialists by the decision ot the coun? try when the Parliament bill was re- | ferred to it, and the responsibility for revealing the conlldential relations be? tween crown and premier will lie with the leaders of the opposition. Iteaaou* Will Not Convince. The Unionists are not likely to gain anything from the debate, In which Mr. Asqulth can sum up the argument , of constitutional practice with CumU- I latlve logical power. Hin reasons fori o/terir.g to the crown advice which i was both natural and necessary will not convince his opponents and will not matter. What Is really Important Is his method of securing the passage of the bill with or without the creation, of peers. The air Is full of rumors, but the most credible information points to a declaration by the Prime Minister that he will submit the bill In Its original form to the Lords with? out additional peers, and that If it be rejected Parliament will be prorogued for a day, the measure will be rein troduced and several hundreds of peers created for placing it on the statute book. It Is probable that a plain statement of the Intentions of the government will suffice for securing the enactment Of the hill on Wednesday. The voting will be close, since Lord Halsbury's. followers are about equal In number to Lord Morley's. hut six or eight of Lord Lansd-wnt's abstainers may enter the government lobby for the sake of preventing any creation of peers. Fire Eafera Will lie Itenponnlhle, If the government takes this course It will act with moderation, and Lord Halsbury's tire eaters will be solely responsible for the degradation of the privileged order if the measure be tli tested temporarily and iinally en? acted by a big creation of peers. Apparently the passage of> the hill cannot be guaranteed by Lord Lans downe nor calculated with precision by Ix>rd Morley. The creation of fifty or a hundred' peers will release ab stalners from their pledges and rein? force Lord Halsbury's lighting force so strongly that the measure will be lost. The best weapon in the government armory is the menace of a big batch of creations. If the bfir he defeated it may alarm the main body of peers und force them to take active meas? ures against the Tory rebels. While Lord Halsbury's revolt has appealed to the sporting instincts of aggressive Unionism, It has become In spite of the protestations of its leaders, a deliberate attempt to d s cre.dit Mr Baifour. If It be .successful his authority as head of the Unionist party will be seriously lmpal/ed. It may not be true that the mem? bers of the Cecil family are punish? ing him for never consulting them nor that Austen Chamb.rla.n und the other tariff reformers are taking' vengeance upon him for playing with their cause Instead of advocating it heartily, but certainly his tactics have been condemned by the rebels and h!a prestige will he lowered If the mln ir ltv triumphs and forces the creation mt peers. Lord Halsbury's followers. Instead of reviving the martial ardor of the Unionists with their "fighting policy." may end by paralysing the party with A CABLE AD EVERY DAY ou send for a Tuner, who comes to your home, tinkers mysteriously, collects his fee and goes away.

London, August 6.?Those Americans | who think that police "graft" Is con- j fined to their sldo of the Atlantic would | open their eyes if they could get a glimpse behind the scenes at Scotland , Yard, the hcadquartors of the Londoit police, or at the central Offices of the police of any of the great English pro- | vlnclal towns. Lincoln Steffens ex- j pressed the opinion recently that Eng- . land was a great Held for a mucki raker, and a muck-raker who tackled the English police .would rind a rich and sticky quality of muck that could not be beaten anywhere in America. J Every now and then English observ- ? era who are familiar with the cond'- i Hons think that the public Is going to get a peep behind the scenes, but- they j never do. Incipient scandals are. hushed up. and the English libel laws' are so framed that no newspaper dares' to print what it knows. During the; last few weekB there were hopes that the searchlight was going to be turned on the London police In the trial of j Ex-Inspector Syme. Syme was dla- ? missed from the force for "lnsubordl- ' nation." Ills insubordination consisted in refusing to lock up a man brought In by a policeman, although command eil to do* so by a superior officer. He demanded an investigation, alleging that the man was being persecuted by ; the police authorities, but he couldn't ; get it Then he. threatened to tell all: he knew, and he was Informed that tile I lunatic asylumB were hungry for such ; men as he. In desperation he wrote a letter threatening to kill Winston Churchill, who. as Home Secretary, U j official head of the London police. It was not contended that the letter was, anything more than a device to attract public attention to his case, but he must go to Jail for six months. Symc's case got Into the papers, but there Is another which did not, and which has a rich flavor ot American police methods in the most unregener ate days. Some months ago a wealthy colonial was robbed by a confidence man ot $6,000. He complained to the police, who promptly arrested the con-1 (Idence man, who was tried, convicted ? and sentenced, in due time an official . at -Scotland Yard handed over to the; colonial $4,000, which he said had been j recovered from the thief. Some time later this man received a pathetic letter from the thief's wife.] who, wit!} her children, was in great: poverty. She had been getting up a; petition to have her husband's sentence reduced, and wrote that she had strong hopes of success if ihe. colonial would alg.n It. He replied that lie had no desire to be vindictive, but that he had ; been gravely inconvenienced- by thej loss of his $1,000, and that under th?| circumstances he refused to sign. Thls| led to a visit from the woman, who | assured him that her husband haft: turned over every penny of the $5,000 to the police. On this the man communicated with Scotland Yard, and in reply he re? ceived a telegram stating that he had received all the money recovered. The telegram was signed by an official at "the Yard," but the colonial was not satisfied and went to see some one "hlglu-r up." The end of It was that there was an investigation, and the colonl&l got his $1.000. The official who had kept hsrk the money and sent a lying telegram was not even dis? missed. He was reduced from first class Inspector to third-class inspector, the charge which went on the record against him being "receiving an un? authorized present and failing to re? port It." He is now at the head of the list Of third-class inspectors, and In direct line for promotion again to his old rank.

August 6.?Many towns In this country have ordinances that prohibit kissing and love-making I in public places, but the town of j Grldley, In Coffey county, Kansas, Is! believed to have the only legal enact- j mont that prohibits "tickling." Grldley Is a small town, where every | one. knows every one else and every-! body Is friendly. Most people are also : t'ckllsh, but some are more ticklish i than others and some of the people of Grldley are extremely ticklish Others know this falling, and they have taken particular delight in call? ing attention to the frallity of their friends. Tickling became such a sport and so obnoxious to many people that a considerable number of nervous break? downs were imminent. Then the cltv fnthers decided fo stop it.

Seattle, August 6.?On a delayed Great Northern train a young woman peered from a window and fidgeted. It was her wedding night. In Seattle the bridegroom, the minister and the coun? ty clerk with the license were waiting for her. It was not only her wedding night, but the anniversary of her mother's marriage day and birthday, too. Be? cause of these two Important facts the young woman and the man who was waiting to claim her as his bride felt it Imperative that the wedding should take place before midnight. The train crawled slowly, then stopped A sympathetic conductor re? ported that they had run over a dog. They moved slowly on and stopped again. A bridge had burned out. They were routed round the obstacle. When Great Northern No. l drew up at the King Street station the hands of the clock pointed to 11:15. That explains why Miss Mamie E. Schnell, of ESvansvtlle. 111., and Roy j Lelch, late of Evansville. hut now of Seattle, were married at the King Street station, the minister racing I against the hands of the clock.

Entries close on Monday, September WAYNE COUNTY HEN LAYS PICTURED EGGS Poultryman Accused of I sing Brush Disprove* the t'hnrge. Honesdale, Pa., August 6.?Wayne county hens have been charged with strange teats since their records as prolific layers became so widely known, but it has remained for Sey? mour Barnes, a Bethany farmer, to relegate the tales of other proud own. _ers to the Mother Goose class. Barnes 'declares that one of his hens has a habit of laying pictured eggs, similar to the ones displayed In toy shops during the Easter season, and he came to town this week bearing Interesting proof of his c'alm. It was an egg of normal size, decorated \n variegated ] colors, and to the dozen or mcrce men ; who examined it. it was an astonish? ing sight. Two thirds of the snell is of a bluish tint and plotted with black specks. The specks form strange combinations, and close examination reveals a large bird, i with elonga'ted body and tall, like a cuckoo; a peacock's tall; outlines sug? gesting an artist's palette and brush, and the numerals 11 and 12. The re? mainder of the shell is white. Skeptics accused Barnes of paint'ng the egg, but when & magnifying glass was produced they discerned that all the marks, colorings and figures aro a part of the shell. The curiosity is on display at the Barnes farmhouse, and It has been viewed by dozens of j poultry raisers since its existence pe- | came known.
