British Premier Gives His Opin

ters of Importance.
IS VEST FRANK IN HIS EEMAEKS
to Our Election Result and
Chinese Imbroglio IV inda
Up With a Warn ing. ,
London, Nov. 10. At the lord
mayor's banquet last night Lord
Salisbury, the English premier, de
parted from the unwritten law which
requires a minister of foreign affairs
to refrain from making public eom
ment on the internal affairs of another
power, and in plain words asserted
his supreme satisfaction over the re
election of President McKinley. The
British premier's open avowal of sym
pathy with the-republican party was
eo unusual as to call from the united
States Ambassador, Joseph II. Choate,
who was present, the remark that he
ventured to "congratulate the noble
lord upon the fact that his remarks
had been made after instead of before
At the banquet at Guild hall, which
followed the installation of the new
lord mayor, there were 900 guests,
including United States Ambassador
Choate, the members of the diplo
matic corps, of the British cabinet,
prominent party leaders and many
leading citizens of Enjrland.
Lord Salisbury, as usual, was the
principal speaker, and his reference
to the. American election was received
with profound astonishment. His
comment in full was as follows: "We
believe that tbe cause which has won
is the cause of civilization and com
mercial honor. We believe those
principles to be at the root of all
prosperity and all progress in the
world. Therefore, we claim that we
have as much right to rejoice in what
has taken pace as the distinguished
gentleman referring to Mr. Choate
who sits at my side."
Lord Salisbury s incursion into the
internal politics of the Lnited Mates
was preceded by an apology, ia the
course of which be said : "One of the
circumstances which has gratilied me
most during the last year is the hearty
friendly feeling displayed between
this country and the United States
I hope Mr. Choate will forgive me if
there is any irregularity inv my ex
pression. It is qcite wrong for a sec
retary of state to make any observa
tions" with respect to the internal
politics of another country, but I am
econ to give up my office, and in vitw
of this abandonment, which is close
at hand, I hope Mr. Choate will for
give me foi expressing the supreme
satisfaction witn which all of us have
heard what has recently taken place
n tbe United bfcates. '
Mr. Choate, replying a few minutes
later to the toast of "The Diplomatic
Corps," declared that Lord Salisbury
bad stated with such truth, simplic-
ty and earnestness the result of the
election that be (Choate) would not
attempt to add to it, although he
would venture to congratulate the no
ble lord upon the fact that his re
marks had been made after instead of
before the election.
Bemarka on tbe South African
The premier reviewed the events of
the last twelve mouths. Kruger and
the empress of China, he w ent ou to
say, had forced war upon t.reat rnni
ain. He maintained that the British
war office deserved great cifdit for
the way iu which it had hanUIed these
emergencies, .e dilated upon the
strengthened ties between the mother
country and the colonies during tne
year, and poked fun at the delay con
sequent uiMn the European concert
when dealing with China. It was not
appropriate for him, he declared, to
comment uiou negotiations waile in
progress, but he eaid he would make
an uxeeption in the Anglo-tiermsn
"rbis," he remarked, represents the
feelings of most, if not all, the pow
ers allied. It is impossible to lay too
much emphasis upon the Integrity of
China and the "open door;' and I think
it a matter ef great advantage thatthe
powers should have expressed them-
selevs in favor of tbee fundamental
principles, for if they are achieved the
issue of the China problem need no.
concern us very anxiously." He main
tained earnestly that the idea of in
vading China with "our scanty force"
or of "approaching Ihestupetidousta.-.k

it to be governed by the Chinese," wa
most dangerous. Uist-peech closed:

The majority of Lord Salisbury's
hearers believed that bis warning,
which was delivered in his most im
pressive manner, referred- to the pos
sibility of French antagonism. Lord
Salisbury, winding up the proceedings,
proposed the health of the new lord
mayor, saying that some of the young
er men present "will live to see the
day when members of parliament from
the Orange and Transvaal colonies will
be present on such an occasion.

Views of the Alore Representative Men on
New Orleans, Nov. 10. The Picayune
has received the following statements
from leading Democrats giving ex
pressions with reference to the future
of the Democratic party:
J. R. McLean: "The Democratic par
ty, notwithstanding it has had to car
ry many -isms' aud that it has allowed
the dteappointed U enlist under its
banner aud'at once become active di
rectors in the party, has polled about
T.OXKO.OOO votes. To tsay tlwit such an
organization should be abandoned or
the devoted men of that organization
should be dismissed or retired is poor
policy and will never meet with suc
cess. It is the duty of the party to
calmly abide by the result and wait for
events. I no more believe today that
the Republican farty is right than I
did on the morning of the Uth of this
month. The election ttias proven that
the commercial interests of the coun
try. are paramount."
J. 'Sterling Morton: "To be saved
the Democriuticiarty should repent the
crime of miscegenation with Populists
aud Free Silver Republicans. After
that it should remove Rryanarehy and
all which that name politically implies.
Then it ought to nominate for the pres
idency in 1SK14 some man Avho has al
ways held firmly for "honest money, for
a tariff for revenue only, for a -strict
