Guy Fawiccs Is bolncc searched lor In the cellar , and there Is an official brushing up ot wigs , gowns and court suits. The members of the government who have had an cosy tlmo for some months , now have to kcop close to the grindstone. The approach of the session Is anything but a Joyful ovcnt to them.

Gl.uUtoiie'n Jtctnrn to Power. Under which king shall wo bo then Glad- Btono or Salisbury ? Take the country through , the betting will bo heavily In favor of Mr.- Gladstone. Ills Irish policy Is shrouded In mystery , but there bo Is the "grand old man. " vVhat need Is there to say more ? Give the g. o. m. another chance , and It looks , now as If the pcoplo meant to do It. Nobjdy knows why. Ho has done nothing " 'whatovnr ' to deserve that renewal of confl- done which ho forfeited in 1SSO as a minis- tor. No crcnt mistakes bavo bcon made , but the outs want to got m and the ins are lan guid nnd demoralized. Decidedly the Glad mono stock Is rising in the marltot. They say ho Is fresher than over , but who can fight against 83 years ! On by ono this ver.v winter Mr. Gladstone has seen his con- tomporurlos swept away by the dark river. tlo Is like ono of the last of the small group of survivors at the Waterloo banquet which the old duke of Wellington gave , until the vacant places at the table became so numer ous that It was a heartbreaking affair to see the anniversary como around. The specters at the feast scared away the handful of guests. Gladstone unit Death. So Mr. Gladstone finds himself almost alone. Ho U still a 'prodigy in activity , but his hearing Is bad and his reserve strength is naturally low. Ho Is coining back Into the midst of the epidemic , which is naturally fatal to the old , and at the beginning of what , In default of anything better , we are pleased to C'lll spring , when bitter winds rack the bones and all the forces of life are sovcrly Ills best friends tremble for him. Uio same tlmo I do not believe tils death breakup his party. It woujd still goon /on / lighting In his name , and if It were wary and vigilant It rclght do just as well without him. Tbo magic of a name Is great If used at the right time. Conservatives who suppose that the death of Mr. Gladstone would throw the whole game Into their hands are much ' mistaken. I.eaclerH Who Are Gone. Wo shall see great gaps In our ranks next Tuesday. Not a single ono of iho loaders who filled the public cyo last session will be there. Parnoll and Smith are in their graves , Hartlngton has gene to the House of Lords nnd Gladstone will appear a little later. Many a member whoso face was familiar to us has dlsapporod during the last six months. Ono is in jail nnd another is to bo expelled almost as soon as the house moots. There is something ghastly about Parlia ment In Us sixth year. All the fire and spirit htivo gene out ot it. Wo seem to bo walking over the ashes and tbo spirit of the dead. It reminds ouo of the blood-curdling song which they sny the British regiment on the Gold coast used during the ravages of yellow fever , when men dropped out of the ranks of the living every day. It had for a chorus : "Hero's a. health to the dead already , Hurrah for the neM who dies , " lliilfonr'K I't'cnllnr 1'onltlon. That must have boon a fostlvo company , but the work of the living must go on and younger men must do it , Now is Mr. Baifour's great onportunlty. Yet ho must fool anxious. His party is no longer enthusiastic. Ho will bavo to face coldness and Indifference on bis own side , whllo the opposition will bo all animation and eagerness. Ho 111U n great position , but no wlso man covets It. The world will watch his stops with curiosity. Should ho succeed there will bo sympathy and applause ; should hobroax down people would say , "I told you so. There never was anything in hltn.

Ho said If too much wheat had not boon sold the price now might ba better , but In many cases it would bo lower , and a specula tor , owing to the lower rates of interest he paid , could carry wheat cheaper than the farmer.
