an exact fac sltnilo of the Eddj stone
lighthouse , 'iho lichthouso which Is lighted
up to the extent of r 00,000 camllo power , Is
built of a fratno work of iron covered with

_ elevators , ufTotds a good observatory One
Of the most intcicstlng features of the exhi
bition is a full sized model of Nelson's fam
ous flagship , the Victory , furnished through
out with guns and accoutrements of
Nelson's day. _ On the lake it is proposed to
give each day a mimic naval battle between
miniature iron clad men of war , including

from 5 dogreei to 10 degrees
nbovo the noimal for the vvce > k. About
the same excess of temperature is reported
from the middle Atlantic states. The tern

prove Injurious In the winter wheat region
from the Ohio valley westward to Kansas
and southward to Tennessee and Alabama
all crops arc reported In excellent condition ,
wheat and grass growing ulcelj and much
corn planted The warm , clear weather has
caused verj rapid evaporation , and although
there has been an excess of precipitation dur-
itiir the season there are ciauj * localities in
the central vallevs where additional rain
would prove beneficial , and the in
dilations nro that thcso rams will
occur during the early part of

have retarded j'rowth and crops are gener-
allj in need of rain Clops are backward ,
although a good stand of cotton is reported
in the western portion of the cotton legion
while in the ] cast the ground is too dry for
plai.tlng In the stnto-i on the Atlantic coast
the weather was not favorable and t reps m

LONDON , May -From reports received
here it is learned that ttie turbulence iu the
mining dlstticts of Fiance and Belgium In
resentment for the sentences of two jears'
imprisonment Imposed on the anarchist
loaders in the riots w htch took p'.uco in Char-
leoi and St Q lantin , in Fiance , led to re
newed c3nes of disorler in these pi ices to-
dav , while at Liege , iu Belizium , detetmined
attempts were undo bj the strikers to pre
vent anj of the men who refused to Join
their rinks from working When the non-
strikers attempted to commence they woio
attacked bv the strikers , who assailed them
with a show or of stones ana other missiles.
The gendarmes who had been placed
on duty < ti the mines to protect
the = o who were willing to work found that
all their effoits to rjpress the disturbance
were useless , and tljo.wercflnallj compiled
to invoke the aid of the military.
At the Harloso collieries In St. Nicholas ,
where the military had been ordered out to
preserve the peace , a ride fire failed to awe
the strikers , although some of them fell
wounded. Ttio stilkers vefy stubbornly re
sisted the military and w ithstood a charge at
them with swords , and only disjcrsed in the
face of a cavalry charge. About thirty of
the rioters weie anestcd.
During the not on Friday at Bedeks in
Hungary a number of enraged peisants
made a savage attack on the chief magis
trate of the pi ice for prohibiting the
people fiom holding May day demon
stration The magistrate was thrown to the
ground and the peasants trampled upon and
kicked his prostrate form , Inflicting terrible
Injuries on the unfortunate man. Upon the
military coming to the rescue of the imper
iled magistrate a sharp affray took place be
tween them and the desperate peasants The
soldiers charged upon the crowd , and ono of
the rioter- > was pierced through by bayonets.
The rioters were finally forced to retie.it and
twentj men were captured and are now
under arrest. The flglitlnir caused the gieut-
est excitement in Bedcks , and affairs as-
assumed such a dangerous shape that the au
thorities were compelled to decl ire the place
in a state of siege. All the shops hue been
closen and the latest news sajs that the people
ple are still w ildly oxciteJ.

tee on the blending of spirits has presented a
report of general world-wldo interest , The
evidence presented weakens the accepted
theory that new spirits Ls a flagrant poison
compared with old spirits. A number of
witnesses concurred In the opinion that now
spiilts could bu tnujn with as much impunity
as old could The committee tended to the
opinion that old spirits is the most vv hole-
some , but btcndid malt and grain whisky
seemed to hit the best dldetic medium The
report refrains from suggesting any Interfer
ence with the existing systems of blending ,
except forbidding the blending of hamburg
spirits with Jamaica rum The report does
not ndvlsc that spirits be kept In bond for a
fixed period 'iho committee's deliverance
read like a toper's vado raectim.

Bun iv , May S The prospect of Prince
Bismarck's eailv reappearance In the reichstag -
stag has civen an Impetus to the govern
ment's plans for the conciliation of the var
ious parties so as to render them ready to
coalesce In the government's Interest The
center and rieslnnlgo pnitics- and the
Guelphs and Poles in turn receive govern
ment Inducements. Thouirh the Poles only
count sixteen in the reichstag their sturdy
support is vvoith havine Ihe lecontlv de
veloped tendencies of the government to
foico the conciliation of the Poles ought
Justly bo ascribed in part to a
quicKened sense of Justice in dealing with
them \\hatover mixed motives may animate
the government the Poles o'vo something to
Prussia and Posen aud have been favorablj-
Influenced by o free use of the national lan
guage in the schoob and by the greater
facilities afforded them for the acquirement
and sale of land than bv the Increased court
esy accorded by officials to Polish families
Todaj- debate in the lower house of the
diet on the budget information for ho Ger
man colonization of vvestein Prussia occa
sioned remarks touching the government's
policy In 1'osen and provoked Chancellor
Von Caprivi to explain. He denied that the
government had conceded to the Poles
nnj thing hovond what came within the scope
of the settlement law. It met with the w Ishes
of the Poles as regards Polish schools and
the church The Poles on their part had also
manifested n desire to bring themselves Into
closer accord with the government. This
desire found expression in the support which
the Poles gave the government proposals for
increasing the defensive power of Germany.
This , the chancellor said , was indeed a pleas
ant and surprising change. If the Poles
vv ould take the lead upon that conciliation
the government of the Germans was rcadj'
to follow. Alluding to the suggestion that
the amiciablc troutmcnt of the Poles had a
latent aim to make pioielvtcs among them ,
Chancellor Von Cnprlvl scouted the
idea tnat the aim of the govcinmcnt
was to conciliate the Poles through
a sense of justice The speech met with gen
eral favor in the house. If no had contracted
the conditions of the Poles in Peen with
that of their harassed kindred over the Rus
sian border the cnaucellor could not have
spoken better.
Prince Bismarck's victory in Ucostomundo
Is modified by the fact that he polled 2,000
fewer votes than did his national liberal pic
decessor In the scat The socialist b illot was
reinforced by over a thousand Gueluhist and
rrcUinnige votes , whoso hatred of the prlnco
exceeded their dislike to tbe socialists
The seml-ofllcial press abstain from com
menting on the result
The Freislnnlgeeitung hails Prince Bis
marck's cntiance into the icichstag aan act
of homaco to the narliamcntaij sjstem which
ho persistently tiled , when chancellor , to dis
credit and weaken.
The prince In an interview on the eve of
the icbaliot declared that if ho went to tno
reichstag ho would never attack anj pollcj
directly initiated bj the emperor and that
his line of conduct would be the same as fol
lowed by him since he loft Berlin. Ho was
convinced , ho said , that the greatest danger
to the father ! ind was not from without , but
from within. He would not refrain from ex
posing , but ho certainlj would never say
anything to give Ills opponents reason to
charge him will attacking the emperor from
personal motives. This sort of assurances
promises lively times in the reichstag
The Hamburger Nachiichten holds that
iho death of Count Von Moltko adds to the
desire of Germanj' to see the prince in the
foio front of politics "A sentiment of dis
quiet , " sajs the Nachnchten , "fills the em
pire. The future is uncertain. The i.cw
men into whoso hands have been confided
the destinies of the fatherland cannot 10-
assure the country.1
'Ihn rrcisinmgo and centrist press Is in
dignant at this laneungo and thu Ucimania
responds as follows"True Germans have
the fullest confidence in the emperor and the
new councillors and disquiet will onlj' arise
if a political despot again becomes tbo mas
ter of the fate of the nation "
