$1.00 PER YEAR.^^« VOL. VIII. GROVER IS KING. Like Napoleon He Believes in His Star And Wants No Advice From Dem- ocratic Senators. His Desire to be Recognized as the Boss, While the Power of Spoils Alone Gives Him Support. Opposed by His Party on Great and Im portant Questions. Silver Supported in the House and Opposed in the Senate. Aiiffij' at Being Iguored. Bpeolal to the Globe. Washington, .Jan. 20.— The Washing ton correspondent of the Ciaclnnstl ln- quirer telegraphs his paper as follows: The talk of a disagreement, or, as some put it a war between the president and the senate, is fudge. The pnwMfUl is not inclined to make war. He is ready to concede most any thing asked of him by the senate. The trouble has been that the committees <>f the senate have asked cabinet officers for certain Information touching changes In the offlces, and the president is stubborn because he lias bees. Ignored. Being the boss of the cabinet, ■j*\<\ allowing these officers but little liberty of action, he wants the senate, to come direct to him for what it in.iy want olii cially. and he will direct his cabinet heads, whom be treats as mere clerks, to furnish it. If there should be a war between the president and senate, it will not be the president's fault. The senate, as is known, is a Republican body, and white Mr. Cleveland is Inclined at times to snub the party to whom he owes his election, be never, even by hint, does aught to hurt the tender feelings of the opposition. For this reason there will t>e DO war. The president hIS ROM to the limit of personally >d vising Republican sen ators that he should l»e triad if they would reject unlit appointments. Having thus O)>enly solicited antagonism, he is not now by any act of his own going to put up a barrier to prevent the fullest investigation at the hands of those who are to pass upon his appointments. Behind all this talk there is anoiher matter. The president feels that in some of the appointments he has made dm in;; the recess 111. BAB 1.1 IN ISL'NKOED, bo to speak, by the friends who ur^ed them ujKin him. Like the feilow in '"The Mi kado/" he has a dozen or more on the list who never will he missed by him, and the truth is. be wants then rejected. He can not well ask Democratic senators to reject tppointeesof their own faith, so he has cleverly Bet Dp a Job with a half dozen Re publican senators to help him out. The president, despite the ill-feeling of his party towards him, does not fret. All his life he has been the creature of luck. Like Na poleon, lie believes in his star, and for llus reason he wants no advice from Demo crats. He feels that his pos tfon places him at the head of the Democratic organization, and that instead of having advice tin ust upon him, he is the one to dictate. He 'vants Democratic policy, as be interprets it, to be promulgated from the White house, and not to be filtered to it from outside sources. Democratic leaders are fast beginning to find this out. They believe that the policy of the president is wading the Democratic party to the devil. Diit they dare not antagonize him, because their constituents are clamoring for the .illices. and the president has them to be stow, [fat one tell swoop the patronage of the government could be taken away from the president, hot few would do him reverence. He would be BRVEBBLT LET ai.onj:. and tlie mass of tlie Democrats on hand would hail it as the day of their deliver ance when Ills official term ran out. Tlie president bvday stands squarely in opposi tion to his party in all of the essentials upon which Democracy has waged iraragainsl the Republicans. First, he is a civil service reformer. True civil service reform lie interprets to be tlie keeping In office of Republicans. Look over the land in any direction, and to-day the Republicans are Intrenched in the best Dftices. Second, he repudiates the Demo cratic party in its sympathies for the poor. This by his efforts to again demonetize sil ver. Put Mr. Cleveland on his own plat form, made by bis first message to congress, and ho could not cany one side of Indiana. The Pacific slates would be in a revolt against him, and he could not even hold the solid South. But yet he has a starved army to treat with. It has been buffeted and surfeited in the stormy sea of politics for a quarter of a century. It is hungry. Mr. Cleveland has the commissary train. Now and again he throws a bone to a Democrat. This inspires hope. The balance, who are waiting lor the next installment, live on faith, which the lore of the catechism says is the substance of things hoped for, not seen. Mr. Cleveland's position to-day with his party is just this: They respect him for the ollices lie has. aixl damn him for his principles. To this complexion has it come at last. The power of sjwils alone gives him the only support he has. THE OM!IH SIDE. JMr. H«rrlll Gives Hik Reasons for Wishing Silver Suspension. Washington, .Jan. 20.— 1n the senate Mr. Hale introduced a resolution of inquiry into the kind of labor employed on the Peoria postoffice. lie did not believe that free labor should be put in competition with convict labor. The resolution of Mr. Mitchell, Inquiring into the enforcement of treaty provisions with China, was referred to the foreign affairs committee, Mr. Mor rill addressed the senate upon the silver question. He said: Ido not mean to encroach upon the priv ileges which so many lxnMx.r-.it c senators uppear safer to enjoy, of coming to the rescue of the president and scei etary of the treasury ayainst the rather cruel attackmade upon a cardinal measure of the iiduiiui-ara tion, as I know the fate of those who venture to Interfere with family quarrels, but this measure, through which silver might lip maintained on a par with gold worthy of all acceptance. I fear wi 1 not have, alter the hot demonstration of the recognized leader of his purty in the senate against it, that unan imous support to which it may be i ah ]> en titled. In the first place, let me say that there are no parttaS, as far as I know, in the senate or out of it, that propose, or that have any wish, to demonetize silver. To charge otherwise is a baseless assumption, and un worthy of the arena of fair debate, ■very body is willing, nay anxious, to keep as much silver in circulation us can be done, and keep it at tho same time at par with our gold coin age. The only hostility to silver arises from what seems to be a fixed and passionate pur pose on the part of some of its advocutes to promote such an excess of silver coinage as will drive gold out of the country, and leave our vast trade and commerce based upon silver only. In reaching this position of silver inonomctalism it is impossible to be Mind to the disastrous contraction of the cir culating medium of the country that would at once occur, lor when the moment arrives that gold < omuiands a premium, it will be beld as a commodity for sale, not for circula tion, a small, or a 0 per cent., premium being as productive of universal hoarding as 25 per ei'Ut., and no | oriole, advantage to our people could be expected from following the tame and feeble example of India or Mexico In utilizing a silver currency only. There is NO WAR UPON BIL.VKH, but the leader of the Democratic party is making war upon gold. Tue senator from . j^pjjg^v ¥ V Kentucky (Mr. Bock) is laboring under the I delusion that he I* still belaboring with left ! banded compliments some Republican presi dent and secretary. I am convinced that continued coinage of large amounts of silver would drive all the gold out of the country. The inferior money never falls to expel the superior. The treasury officials are complying with the laws. There are in the treasury $ir,.j.r,ar>.ooo of standard silver dollars, which we are struggling bow and where to safely store until by 6ome mir acle they can tln.J more favor in a wicked world. We have coined 5215.000,000 of silver dollars, but have been able to get only about $50,000,000 into spasmodic circulation. The senator from Kentucky of course expects to i carry the empire state In 1688 on his plat : form. Not himself eligible as a candidate for the presidency, the distinguished senator waves bis banner reckless of the clouds, without any silver lining, which there be token a disastrous fate to any Democratic son of New York who may sock to conquer under that sign. With the increase of silver we approach a monetary crisis, tint there are steps that cannot easily be retraced. The public faith is pledged to the payment of bonds, both principal and interest, in gold, fWi'l our credit would be dishonored by pay ing them off in silver worth 79 cents on the dollar. MX. BECK. To slop silver coinage in order to make silver money more valuable 13 like stopping the grinding Of wheat Into flour to make the wheat store valuable. The purpose Is to sus pend and never resume coinage. Silver is ! good enough for» everybody but the bond holder, and bo hus agreed in writing to take it. The bankers and bondholders of •/all street are gambling upon the misfortunes of the people, and the people will see that it is not turned into a irovernment of bondholders, by bondholders and for bondholders. Mr. Morrlll — Mr. Bock's r«-i>ly reminds me of the story of the boy who cried when his mother whipped him, and asked by bis mother why he Dried so much harder than bad been his custom on similar occasions, replied: "Because, mother. l mo you are growing weaker and weaker every time you flog me." [Laugnter.l Mr. Teller— l deny the statement by Mr. Morrill to the effect that 1 165.000,000 of the 5215,000,000 sliver dollar* already coined can not tie got Into circulation. That statement was made by the president and secretary of tlie treasury, and not by accident. It was intended to mislead and has Misled the people. By the same process of logic it can bo as serted that the- £250.000,000 of gold In tho treasury cannot be put in circulation. Tbo government has made $20,000,ou) pro tit on the coinage of silver* it has no rijrht to make a profit on the coinggc. The talk of tho gov crtnncnt losing money on the silver coinage is all I'O-ij and nonsense. After remarks by Messrs. . McPherson and Maxey the senate went into executive session and afterdards adjourned. SILVER IX THE HOUSE. XI r. Symes of Colorado Strenuously Objects to Suspension. Washington, Jan. 20. — The house dis cussed at considerable length the bill to raise widows' pensions from S3 to $13 a month. The first bill on the calendar was the senate bill for the purchase of the old produce exchange in New York city, and Mr. vines, getting the floor, proceeded to deliver a speech in opposition to the sus pension of silver coinage. He said: The statements of the president and secre tary of the treasury that tbe silver dollar can not be made to circulate are ridiculous. The coinage and legal tender laws have been wil fully violated by the executive officers of the government. If the secretary of lir- treasury must pay all the interest on bonds in PJOM. what excuse Is therefor his not paying out tho silver dollar for a portion of the ordinary expenses of the government? She interest on the public debt Is about (1,008.000 a month, leaving t&O.tiUU.OUU to be paid lor ordinary ex penses. The secretary of tho treasury has stated that he is mukiug every effort to put the silver dollar in circulation. Why then, is not 6uch an amount paid out us would reduce the accumulation in the vaults? Would me poor pensioners, or the sailors and soldiers, or the government clerks object to being paid in silver dollars, or silver certillcates? not at all. Then ills a"f also preteuae for the secre tary to say that he is making an un«uei'f-s«> ful attempt to put Silver in circulation. Tie false outcry that (he people would not receive the silver dollar is made for the purpose of deceiving: TIIK people. It-is made in pursuance of a great conspir acy for bondholders, capitalists and monopo lies of tho money centres to demoralize ono liull Of the metal money of the world, and It is a mutter of serious public concern that the highest oQiccrs of the government urn aiding tin- conspiracy by violating the plain letter and spirit of the law. In August last the treasurer and his assistant!:, the inonomctul isis. tried to get up a sciire by saying that the gold reserve In tho treasury was fast disap pearing, while the fact was that it was in creasing. Am I not justified in saving, to create an alarm on account of the so-called gold reserve falling below the requirements of the government, is a farce and without foundation, in fact? If the financial policy of the people is to bo controlled by the secre tary of the treasury, and not by acts of con gress, it should bo so understood, and the mode Of se ecting that dintiniruished officer should be Ohaagtld. My critic. against the present administration applies us well to the past Republican administration. The demor alization Of silver will create a flat money party in this country, compare! with which the Greenback party from t ie doss of the war to 1879 was small and insignificant. The house was then brought back to the subject under immediate consideration, be bag the produce exchange ML It was passed, and the house adjourned. "Minority Itcport on Porter. Washington, Jan. 20.— The mi, nority report of the house committee M military affairs on the bill for the relief of Fitz-John Porter was laid be fore the house to-day. The minority states the only legal ground upon which the re port can be sustained and the finding of the court-martial reversed is that the court wickedly, corruutedly and maliciously con spired to sacritice Porter to save Pope from the odium of defeat, and it would be a bold man who affirmed that proposition. The minority argues that the bill is unconstitu tional, inasmuch as it is a usurpation by congress of the function of the co-ordinate branches of the government It says that if the bill does not nominate Porter to office it is an absolute nullity. If it does nomin ate, it is an invasion of the executive pre rogative. If it is advice it is useless, and if law it is usurpation. If the court-martial erred there was no appeal. The minority respected Porter for his persistence, still it could not but believe that his disobedience and inaction cast the shadow of woe over thousands of homes and brought disaster to the national cause. Senate Confirmation*. Washington*. Jan. 20. — Among the confirmations in the senate yesterday were the following: Isaac H. Maynard of New York to be sec ond comptroller of the treasury: D. M. Fox of Pennsylvania to be superintendent of the mint at Philadelphia: William A. Day of Illi nois to be second auditor of the treasury; John S. Williams of India. to bo third audi tor of the treasury; AIL-?rt B. Steams of Massachusetts, appraiser oi merchandise at Boston; James A. Dawson of Colorado, sur veyor general of Colorado; Adlai E. Steven son of Illinois to be first assistant postmas ter general. Washing ton Waif*. The secretary of the treasury has received a long communication from Mr. George V. Braver, general appraiser at the port of New York, in regard to the charge? recently preferred against him by S. D. Phelps of New York. He gives a detailed answer to each of the allegations contained in Mr. Phelps 1 letter, and makes a broad and general denial of them all. The charges were neglect of duty, incornpetency and disregard of law. The appropriation committee of the house yesterday discussed Mr. Morrison's bill to re peal all acts making permanent annual ap propriations No expression of opinion was had, but the chairman was instructed to make inquiry of the secretary of the treasury regarding the branches of the government service that would be aflected by the passage of the measure. The house committee on agriculture yester day agreed to report favorably a bill author izing the transfer of a portion of the money appropriated for the laboratory division of agricultural department of the teed division of the government. This bill is really for the benefit of the commissioner of agriculture. ST. PAUL, THURSDAY MORXIXG. JANUARY 21, ISB6. A EEIGN OF TERROR. Considerable Bloodshed in a Collision of tie Pennsylvania Polic? and Hun garian Coke Drawers. The Excitement So Intense it is Impos sible to Gat a Complete List of Oasnalti s. Many of the strikers Crazed With Drink— Militia Heady to Take the Field. » Status or the Great New York Clear makers' Lockout—Arbitration Probable. A Collision With tbe Police. Mount Pm:asant, Pa., Jan. 20. — Sheriff Stewart and forty deputies and De tective Broppy and twenty armed police from Pittsbtirg had a desperate conflict with 250 strikers this afternoon and at the Alice works in the morning. The rioters rested for dinner: then they massed at the Mutual works, near Stonerville. At this point a negro, without provocation, tired at the Hungarians with a shotgun, but failed to hit any of them. They surrounded his house, dragged the negro out, beat him fearfully and left him for dead, with his skull fractured. He will probably die. At 3 o'clock the strikers passed up toward Moorewood, flourishing every manner of weapons from revolvers to case scrapers. They were headed by Steven Staunix, the main agitator of the strike. When they reached shaft A, Moorewood mines, they encountered sixty two deputy sheriffs and policemen drawn up for battle. Detective Broppy talked to the foreigners, telling them it was useless to resist and that ho would arrest the ring leaders. Broppy arrested one striker, which opened the. combat hand to hand, but the oflicers won, arresting thirteen men and one woman, who were sent to jail at Greensburg. The balance retreated. Over "M. m \:>i:» ii SHOTS were fired and several Hungarians were In jured, how badly it Is not known, as they were carried away by their companions. Only one officer was slightly hurt. The authorities, it is stated, havo telegraphed to Pittsburg for more officers. The strike is only inaugurated, and more bloodshed is feared, borne little excitement was oc casioned by the stupid report that Hun garians were actine under orders from the Chicago lodge of socialists, and that dynamite had been taken from Loire's magazine during the recent raid, to be used in blowing up company property. The story, however, is generally discredited. This strike is undoubtedly the most danger ous in the history of the coke industry. Operators have an entirely different class of men to deal with, Hungarians when drunk are unmanageable, and more like fiends than men. In former strikes this element was not in the held. and operators had more Intelligent men to deal with. A feeling of insecurity prevails, and citizens near the threatened districts are arininir themselves •and otherwise preparing to defend their homes as best they may. SIHATION AT MIDNIOHT. I'ittsiu Pa., Jan 20.— A dispatch at midnight says it is thought one Hungarian was killed in the fight with the police this afternoon. When the arrests were made the wife of one Hungarian, who was cap tured, duns about her husband's neck and the united strength of two officers could not break her grasp. She accompanied her liege lord to jail. The surging crowd, the spiteful snap of the revolvers, the flee ing strikers and the shrieks of the women made an exciting; scene. At 5:33 the special train left for CJreensburg with the prisoners, guarded by policemen, A riot is also reported to have occurred at the Donnelly and Diamond works, about three miles east of ML Pleasant, in which live Hungarians and three Americans were injured. The condition of affairs at raid night is food. A special train has just ar rived at the Standard with a police force, which will be used to-night to arrest Rome men charged with assault upon a German coke-drawer on last Saturday morning. Heathen of the Fourteenth and Eighteenth regiment, N. G. P., of this city, have been ordered by the commanding officer to hold themselves in readiness to go to the coke regions on short notice. No orders have been received from the governor, but the officers thought best to be prepared in event of call for troops. a<;<;i:avatfii BY THE POLICE. Stoxeville, Pa.. Jan. -JO.— The situa tion has assumed au alarming phase in the coke regions. This morning SOO strikers. armed with bars, coke forks .and revolvers, started on the march. They draw the men from work at the Alice and charged War den's coke yard, at this place. Then the Maylield and Donnelly mines wore visited. a mile west of here. A boy named Mentzer was terribly beaten and the yard boss, Mc- Cabe. was chased and hammered. Every oven-front was crushed in. The rioters have gone across the country toward the Rising Sun works. The greatest trouble is yet to come. Saturday will bo pay day, and on Monday the ten days will have ex pired since notice to quit was given the strikers in company houses. There will likely be serious trouble when ejectment Is attempted. The report that the governor had been called upon for aid is untrue. Sheriff Stewart says lie will not send until he rinds himself unable to cope with the disturbing elements. At Connellsville the Trotter. Dexter and Franklin works are idle to-day, the workmen having joined the strikers. At Fort Hill the advances have been granted and the men are at work. Over four thousand men are now out and the strike is spreading throughout the re gion. Trouble is reported at the Redstone works, and officers have started for that place. The action of the operators in send ing uniformed police from Pittsburg has ag gravated the situation. THE STRIKING CIGAR3IACEBS. Latest Phase of the Great New York Lockout. New Yokk. Jan. 20.— Nine thousand clgarmakers and other employes in the trade employed by the Cigar Manufacturers' as sociation are idle to-day. The direct cause of the trouble is the refusal of the employes of Levy Brothers to declare their strike against the new uniform price list off and return to work. The employes have banded themselves together to resist this demand. By to-morrow the packers in all the shops will have joined the strikers. The strike extends to the cigar-box making trade. When the packers quit the number on a strike will have swelled to an even 10.000. The manufacturers claim that they have sufficient stock made up to fill their orders for several months to come. The packers' going out, they say, will not deter them from supplying their customers. THE CIGAR MAXUFACTCBEB3 this afternoon issued a statement to the public The statement made by these men are declared to be misleading and untrue. The new price-list enabled the operatives to earn, for instance in the factory of John Love, during the past week, men and women, an average of 514.54 each. "They (the strikers) quote St. Louis. Elmira, Springfield. Urbana, Denver and Topeka as paying higher prices than offered by this association." reads the statement, "but they have failed to say anything about Blnghamton, Syracuse, Reading, Cincin nati, Chicago, Milwaukee. Toledo, and many other places, where the prices for labor are infinitely lower than the prices offered by this association. This association feels that the controversy should Boon come to an end. The 15,000 people, not 7,000, who are out of em ployment should ne cared for. and to that end this association offers the following proposi tion: The whole difficulty to bo settled by any fair mode of arbitration that nay be sug posted and agreed upon, pending such arbi tration we to open our factories at a schedule of prices, and any difference between these prices and those agreed upon to be paid to our workmen at the termination of this con troversy." This statement Is officially signed by the manufacturers. It Is stated among the strikers to-night that William Love has asked for a conference to the end of a settlement, and that be has withdrawn from the Manufacturers' union, He em ploys over 400 men. including bunchers and strippers. The men to-nisht state in re gard to the manufacturers' proposition they will not accept any arbitration. Excited Ohio Senators. Columbus O-, Jan. 20.— Proceedings which occasioned considerable excitement took place in the Ohio senate this after noon. A resolution was presented to re lieve the committee on privileges and elections from further consideration of the Hamilton county senatorial contest aud ap peal cases, and directing them to return to tbe senate all papers and proceedings bad by tbe committee, that contests might (<•• made a special order for hearing In the open senate, beginning Jan. 20. The clerk alter reading, referred the resolution to the committee on privileges and elections, while the president, in a demonstrative manner, entertained a motion to lay the matter over. The journal la in accordance with the ruling of the chair and the resolu tion will come up again to-morrow. There is considerable partisan feeling over the proceeding on both sides. Democrats pro iess to believe that if the investigation is conducted in ojhmi senate, under subsequent rulings of the chair, the Republican contest ants will be seated, while Republicans claim to be acting under a demand tor a more speedy and thorough investigation than would likely be secured at the bands of a committee. — ■ • \i . NATIONAL LEAGUE MEETING. The Executive Committee Holds Two Sessions in Chicago. A Feeling Letter of Thanks Received J'rom Mr. I'arnell. President Ksau Kcconsldera Ills De termination to l.ol^ii. Chicago, Jan. — The executive com mittee of the Irish National League of America held two sessions here to-day. President Egan, Rev. Charles O'Reilly, treasurer: Roger Walsh, secretary, and a large number of delegates were present A number of telegrams and letters from prominent citizens were read, expressing promises <>f sympathy and support. Rev. Dr. O'Reilly read a letter received from Mr. Paruell, which read as follows: London, Jan. s.— My Dear Dr. O'lteilly: I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letters of date nth and loth of December advising me that you have forwarded two drafts for £1.000 each to Mr. Harrington and payable to my order. At the commencement of the re -081 eleetorial contest and when largn sub scription* had commenced to arrive freely from America, it was deemed proper by my colleagues, with my concurrence, to appoint two additional treasurers for tot- custody and cxpeudituro of the parliamentary fund.

Mr. QmMMM then alluded to the deter mination expressed by President Egan to m _'n ni> position in the league, and pro i resolution that liis re>ii:natioii be not accepted. Mr. McCarthy, however, proposed an amendment that the resigna tion be referred back to the president for iiis reconsideration. The amendment was carried. The president t : ieu said he had fully determined on coming here to resign, but in consideration of the unanimous re quest of the committee he would recon sider it and give a reply within an hour. This was denied to him. and then he ac ceded to the ie<|iu->t of the meeting to hoid office at least till the next convention. Be fore adjourning the executive committee adopted the follow. ng resolution: KOAK'S COI'KSE APPROVED. Resolved. That we approve of the course of President hgau in making preparations for the convention by appointing a» the MM uiittee of arrangements ex-President Alex- ander Sullivan and tbe officers of the league for the c ity of Chicago and tbe state of Illi nois; that we congratulate that committee op the breadth of view which it took of its duties by inviting to serve as the committee of re ception, with the governor of Illinois as chairman, leading citizens, representing' all parties, creeds and pursuits; that we commend the fidelity and devotion with which tbe committee of arrangements lias perfected all tbe details for a great con vention for tbe railroad and hotel acvommo- dations of dele-rates from Ireland and Amer ica and for the jrreut mass meeting to be held in connection with the convention, and we hereby appoint the same committee to per form the same function* for tbe convention to t>e a eld when tbe date arranged by com munication between tbe league executive and Mr. Parnell. The treasurer reported that since the Boston convention 590.000 had been sent to Ireland and there was sufficient on hand to make the amount $100,000. At the meet ing John Fitzgerald of Nebraska presented $2,400 raised in the city of Lincoln; $530 was presented by J. F. Armstrong, Augusta. Ga., and a telegram was received from Omaha stating that Si. ooo bad been sent To-night, notwithstanding a heavy snow storm, every st at in Central Music hall was occupied, the occasion being a "demonstration," the door receipts of which were to be gathered into the National league treasury. Judge Moran of Chicago presided and addresses were made by Pat rick Egan, Rev. Charles OReilly. CoL Boland and others. The audience num bered fully 3.000. It is understood the next convention of the league will be held in Chicago the latter part of August, whether Parnell can be present or not. A Wedding Postponed. Special to the (ilohe.

Special to the Globe. 1.0vi,,,v. Jan. 20.— 0n the eve of the opening of parliament the only definite statement that can be made as to the prob able turn to be given to Irish legislation is that everything during the last few days has indicated a disposition on the part of the Liberals and Tories toward verity. The spirit of concession with which the campaign started out, and which at one time seemed to resolve Into a scramble to see which side could do the most to conciliate Parnell, has apparently disappeared. The explanation of this fact may doubtless be found in tho discovery of the real strength of feeling in England against granting Ireland either home rule or anything which might be used as an opening wedge for further legislation in the direction of alienation of that country from the direct control of the crown. The surprising strength of the sentiment appar ently convinced Mr. Gladstone and Lord Salisbury some time ago that it would bo a mistake to go too far m the wav of local government schemes. Tho more recent phases of the campaign have been appeals by the two rival political chiefs for the support of the Irish people directly rather than through their recognized leaders. Lord Salisbury has undoubtedly been fostering the Irish Loyalist movement, while Mr. lads tone, there is reason to be lieve, has been making overtures to the mass of tho Irish people by trying to push the rent and land question to the foremost place, hitherto occupied by the home-rule question. The effect of all this has been to create rivalries and side issues in the ranks of the Irish politicians and to give MX. iwi.Nf i 1 -i\i( i BTKASIXKSS at times in regard to lib maintenance of discipline among hi? followers. It does not appear, however, that any serious inroads have been made on the Irish leader's in fluence, but the feeling is that eveu with the eighty-six Irish members standing as a unit, they |will not exercise the controll ing influence in parliament which was confidently predicted after the elections. The real effect of the Glad stonian tactics in Ireland will probably not be felt during the first part of the session, but later on. especially if it is seen at the outset that home rule is an ultimate prize, the question is then likely to be, how much can be gained on the basis of land reform. This will give room for entirely new com binations, ami if any real differences of opinion exist among the eighty-six members upon the treatment of this question there will be opportunity for sharp practice in the way of a division of forces, and swerv ing of support to the party offering the most liberal inducements in land legislation. Beyond this it is idle to attempt any proph ecy. Mr. Gladstone's letter to the mayor of Belfast states distinctly that the Liberal policy will not be announced until the government has stated its platform, and Lord Salisbury told the Ulster delega tion that the government's policy would not be announced until the proper course of business in parliament made such a state ment necessary. In the face of these posi tive declarations, it is evident that all re ports which are being sent out, and which purport to ha exact definitions of the plans of the opposing chiefs, are mere conjecture. The interest manifested in to-morrow's re opening of parliament has rarely been equaled in the past. The demands for ad mission t > the houses is unprecedented, and it is expected that to-morrow will be a red letter day in the history of Westminster. To Open Parliament in Person. London. .lan. 90. — The queen arrived i;i London to-day from Windsor castle. She drove from the railway station to Bucking hain palace in an open carriage, and re ceived an ovation along the route.

The lord chancellor will read the. spe- what tub qiki:\ VOL s.vr. The queen's s]>eecb w.is read at tho n:in istrate dinner to-day. Inferring to Ireland the speech says that although in some re spects there are favorable indications of progress toward order in that country, yot ..: j.rv~»-:it Ireland is disturbed by an increas ing tendency to resort to unlawful practices and a disposition to set the law at naught, 'ihe government therefore recognizes its duty to take energetic steps to enforce law and order to provide security for life and property and to maintain in its fullest mean ing the integrity of the union, and meas ures necessary to secure these ends will be submitted to parliament. The speech fur ther promises a local governient measure for England, to be followed by similar measures for Scotland and Ireland, and a bill to cheapen and facilitate the transfer of land. It refers to the "hopeful prospects"' of the Egyptian commission establishing a stable government in Egypt, says that the question of annexing Bunuah will not be decided until Lord Dufferin reports on the subject, but that the deposition of Thee baw is necessary: congratulates parliament on the peaceful foreign relations of Great Britain: trusts that peace will be main tained in the Balkans throughout the self control of the powers interested, and con cludes by expressing the hope that the new parliament will follow the great tradition of former governments. AXOTHEK FORECAST of the queen's speech, delivered at Lord Salisbury's dinner to-day, gives the follow ing as its substance: It expresses satisfac tion at Great Britain's friendly relations with the powers, the conclusion of the ne gotiations with Russia and the progress of the delimitation of the Afghan frontier, the pacification of Egypt, and the hopeful pNMMfti <»f !>ir Henry Prumruond WolrTe's mission and the rapid progress of the Brit ish in Burmah. It regrets the unsettled condition of Ireland and hopes that If it should be found necessary to adopt meas ures to supersede the ordinary laws for the purpose of upholding public order, the gov ern incut will be given the full support of parliament The government intends to introduce local government for England and Scotland and a similar measure for Ire land if the circumstances of that country render it expedient. Among other bills will be one relating to the international copyright. The speech regrets the present depression in trade, and hopes that the royal commission will devise some means for improving business. It in learned on good authority that the government, if de teated on the Irish question, will not resign, but will appeal to the country. Lor.' Salis bun's dinner was phenomenally brilliant, among the guests being eleven dukes, seven marquises, forty-three earls, four viscounts and twelve barons. EXCITED IHXGARIA.\S.

There are no affini ties. It is important that the federalist pol icy now pursued by Austria should not be pushed to such a point as to estrange the two halves of the monarchy, leading to a dis -1 solution or the empire. He concluded by quoting the words of Baron Jo>eph Eotvo. the friend of Kossuth, and who protected the latter from the at tacks of the Conservatives: If ever he was compelled to chooso be tween Germanism and Slavism he would pro nounce m favor of m,- former. The other member w hose remarks caused excitement was Ilerr Szabo. pre>ident of the supreme court. In the course of the debate on the budget he declared that an official, who was n friend of Ilerr Tisza, the Hungarian prime minister, was squan dering one-third of the revenues of Hun gary. Uerr Szabo was immediately asked to name the otlicial. He refused, how ever, unless an otlicial Inquiry was insti tuted. This produced an uproar, an I cries of "tie" arose from ail parts of the chamber. Heir Szabo remained obdurate, and declined to give the name of the of licial. Tho Jleraey Tunnel Opened.
