' Mr. Halstead's Re jection—William Waller Phelps the Next Favorite—Roulanglsm in the French Army—Mr. Bright Fleeted. London, April 16. —The presentation of the budget by Mr. JOeorge J. Goschen, chancel lor of ;the exchequer, was the distinguishing feature of the proceedings of the House of Commons last night. Contrary to cxjwcta Jon, the budget does not in the least affect any article of trade with America and is singularly free from startling innovations. The only new points worthy of especial men tion are the increase of death duties, or taxa tion of legacies, and a considerable increase of the present taxation of malt. Both of these are Liberal measures, and the first mentioned may be said to be almost social istic, since the contention of the Socialists is that the right of the post-mortem division of property does not exist and that therefore ail property not devised before death should re vert to the state. The taxation of legacies already plays an important i>art in the Brit ish revenue, and the proposed increase will without doubt receive the full support of the Radical members as a step in the right direc tion. Mr. Goschen said the revenue would ex ceed the estimates of the la t budget by £1,IMS.000, while the expenditures were £041,000 below the estimate, leaving a sur plus of £2,586,000, the largest since 1873, The revenue from malt and spirituous liquors and tobacco had decreased, that from tea showed a small increase, anil the income tax had realized £1,310,000 over the estimate. The postal service revenue was £300,000 and that from stamps £400,000. The revepue for the current year would probably bo £85, 000,000 and the expenditures about £87,000, 000, The deficit would be met by taking £1,000,000 of the sum saved last year and patting an additional tax upon death duties on estates of the value of £10,000 and up wards and adding one-fourteenth of a penny to the taxation on each gallon of bear manu factured. The lierliu Press Murat Halstead*, Rejection. Berlin, April 16—Both The Berliner Zei tung and The Deutsche Tageblatt unite in de claring that the rejection of Murat Halstead a* minister to Germany by the United States senate, was wholly due to his exposure of wholesale bribery in the election of Senator Payne. The Tageblatt further says that the rejection of Mr, Halstead's nomination was foul political assassination of that gentleman by Senator Payne. Mr. Halstead had been persona gratiadma at Berlin, and his presence at the German court would have been em inently satisfactory. Next to Mr. Halstead's appointment the hope is expressed that fhe place will ultimately be given to William Waiter Phelps. ■ The Boulanger Case. Paris, April 16—It is thought probable that a number of military officers will be ar rested in connection with Gen. Boulanger's trial, as among tlie document* submittal to the investigating committee are some proving that the army was tampered with and impli cating some ot the officers. Warrants for MM. Boulanger, Rochefort and Dillon Lave been formally served at their residences. The Samean Conference. Berlin, April 16—The Cologne Gazette gays ihat the nomination ot Mr. Sewall, late consul general at Samoa as one of the Sa moan commissioners, together with the ap pointment of Mr. Bates, warrants the suppo sition that fhe Washington government d< not seriously desire a friendly settlement of the Samoan muddle. The Berlin Post states that the Samoan conference will open on May 1. The German delegates to the conference will be Count Herbert Bismarck and Dr. Krauel, the head of fhe colonial department of the foreign office. Count Bismarck will preside. Mr. Bright Kleotoil.

Conshohockkn, Pa, April 16—The Con sbobookeu Worsted Mill company of this place has assigned for the benefit of its cred itors. The company operates throe mills and employs nearly 1,000 hands, the monthly pay role amounting to about $35,000. The assign ment is due partly to the complicated condi tion of the estate of the late George Bullock, president of the company. A business man who is conversant with the affairs of the company says that there would be no trouble, and that the creditors would probably re ceive dollar for dollar and leave the plant clear. The capital stock of the company is $600,000, It is stated that the working cap ital wa* nut sufficient, and that this aise had an important bearing on the faillira National Service Pension Association.
