IlF.tti.iv , March 10. A calmer vlow of the
iinnlstorial situation provalls everywhere
tonight. It la positively known tlitt Chan
cellor von Uaprivl has not roilgnod , anil that
the rotlrctncnt of Count von Zcdlllr , the
Prussian inlnUtor of ecclesiastical affairs ,
instruction anil medicinal affairs , is still un
decided. It ctoponds on the result of Emperor -
poror William's doll derations In the matter.
Now that thonaluroof the crisis Is better
understood It Is soon that at no time had It
been ol the suddenly momentous character
that rumor gave to it.
Oilers odi Compromise ,
Since the committee having In charge the
Prussian primary education bill began its
Itting , Chancellor von Caprlvi and Count
von X.odlltz have bcon offering liberal oppo
sition to the tentative amendments to the
measure. Only last \voak the government
seemed to bo bidding for an arrangement of
the difficulty which had arisen over the bill
which would ho satisfactory to the national
liberals and would broalc up the threatened
coalition with the freislnnigo party. Herr
Mlqlicl , 'io ' Prussian minister of finance
who , when the Dill was promoted , 'offered to
resign his ofllce , was Induced to change his
position or the promise of the emperor that
satisfactory modifications should bo made in
the bill , was empowered by llorr von Bonnie-
ton , the national liberal loader , to Inform the
emperor that his parly retained no hope that
the negotiations would result success
fully unless the bill should bo so
altered as to iloprlvo the Caldolio and
Lutheran clergy of the special rights given
them to control religious teaching In the ele
mentary schools. The emperor , therefore ,
had to face the loss of his ablest minister ,
HOT Miguel , and the popular agitation
against the bill or to got von Xedlitz to offer
a plausible compromise. On Thursday last
ho Instructed Count von X.odlitz to proo.iro a
compromise measure on the basts of the do-
: > iands which the national liberals nude.
Count von Xcdllt/ consulted with the chan
cellor , who urged that uu altompl bo made
to do the other's wishes , von Zadlttz lound
that an attempt to alter the bill in such a
way that , it would satisfy the national
liberals would involve such radical changes
ns to make the maasuro impossible of accept-
unco by the conservative and cantorists
majority , and that his only way out of the
dlfllculty was to resign , n-id ho will ndhoro
to his resolution to retire from the ministry
if the emperor persists In his feeling In re
gard to the national liberals.

1'orsons who are ncqualutud with the
emperor's moods will not bo surprised to see
him in Berlin any day full of some solution
of the existing dlfllculty reached by him
through his reflections among the forest
solitudes. Oc his stav 'may bo protracted

LONDON' , March 10. Twelve ot the loading
Scotch member. * have Introduced in Parltr.-
inont n bill for the creation of a Scotch legis
lative body. All the liberal members re
turned from Scotland hnvo announced tholr
adhesion to the measure , and many English
member * , Including some conservatives , have
rivately signified their approval.
The Interest of the world at largo In legls-
otion for Scotland , whether relating to homo
ulo or anything else , it only fractional , but
rho bill now before Parliament will attract
attention outside of Scotland , chlellv for Its
bearings upon the question In Ireland. The
croup of Scotch members who have prepared
t are all steadfast. Uladstontans have In
nind throughout the inception of the bill ,

: o Ireland.
Part 11 rat establishes in Scotland a loglala-
turo consisting of ttio qiioan and Scottish
legislative body , which body shall have Juris
diction over all matter ? except those properly
belonging to Iho Imperial legislature.
The Scottish parliament is to consist of
Scotch mambora returned to the Imperial
parliament , excepting those returned for the
Scotch universities. It will meet in autumn
and consider all bills , public ant ) private ,
and all business executively relating to Scot-
ami. Bills passed become Iaw3 under assent
of the queen and will not require the sanc
tion ot the Imperial parliament nor of the
House of Lords. Neither the imperial parlia
ments nor tno government shall have any
power to vote oa measures passed by the
Scotch legislative body.
The executive government of Scotlanp
shall ba vested In the queen and carried on
In the legislature of Scotland with such
officers and council as may bo provided for
by the Scotch legislature. For the purpose
of administration the Scottish legislature
may impose taxes other than duties of cus
toms or excise' ; shall create a Scottish con
solidated fund , separata from the consoli
dated fuad of the United Kingdom. All
taxes Imposed by the Scottish legislature ,
with all other public revenues under the con
trol ottho government of Scotland , shall ha
paid into the Scottish consolidated fund and
appropriated to the puUie service of Scot
The amount annually payable by Scotland
towards maintenance of nil Imperial estab
lishments and defraying 'imperial charges
shall bo proportioned to that paid by Eng
land and Wales , having regard to their re
lative wealth and population.
Part second , referring to the appointment
of Judge or "lords of sessions , " ns the Scotch
term Is , provides tuat all existing civil and
criminal coiuts shall bo maintained , subject ,
however , to abolition and alteration , and that
lords of session cun bo removed from oftlco

Then there is a provision that the "power
and authority of the Imperial pivliamont
shall in nowise bo diminished or restrained
by anything herein contained , " a clause ob
viously InsortoJ to sootuo the toolings of
ceutorsists , who attach much moaning oven
to a verbal recognition of the sovereignty ol
the Westminister parliament.
Some points ot theao provisions are notably
worth comparison with Mr. Gladstone's llrst
homo rule bill. First , probxuly tbsra is only
ono legislative body proposed. The Scotch
parliament will bo a democratic body , bavin , ;
no check upon its legislation , except the ro-
lorcncc to the Judicial commlttco in the privy
council , which will determine as to the val-
tatty of any Dill on the simple issue whether
it is within the constitution or not. Next ,
tno bill ignores the question of police control ,
simply because the powers con
ferred on the executive and legislature.
give them that control , The matter
needs no special clause lor its adjustment.
Ireland with its semi-military constabulary ,
bus Its peculiar dlfllculty. Then as to judges ,
the appointments shull rest with the crown ,
but the parliament evidently , according to
the bill , will have power of protest , and
practically of removal. The Scotch liberal
members have boon wholo-heartoJ lowara
their Irhh aonfroraas In preparing the bill.
If the Irish warty accept its main proposals ,
Mr. Gladstone's way toward hU coming
homo rule measure has now loan made oisy ,
At Clio sumo time , once the mure urgent Irish

up In the south over his order calling upon

there were u few lice-eaters down there who

very rank communications that were sent

Special to Tttn BIE.I A crisis In the af
fairs of Germany is coming on moro quickly
than was expected. The pcoplu nro com
plaining , because they wish to live In peace
with tholr neighuors and with themselves.
They are beginning to complain of being
governed by a vovorolgn whoso least defect
is want of connected ideas. The resignation
of the chancellor Is not biought about by the
disorders in Hcrliu , but by the policy pur
sued by the omporor. If wo accept the cru
cial version , there are no disorders. The
chancellor nntl other ministers resign be
cause the omparor wants to withdraw the
lol scolulro. Is hot this the boat proof of the
111 balanced mind of Emperor William !
There has never been soon such a spectacle
ns this , of u sovereign nibbling no tno treas
ury In an affair of this importance in order to
got out of a dlfllculty , and leaving all the re
sponsibility on his ministers. Ho presented
thb bill and oxpectcd nis orders to bo obeyed.
Just imagine a sovereign colng away from
the capital ut n critical moment in politics.
The gravity of the situation may last four
days , the emperor having pone to a" hunt ,
and nobody being able to got in communication
tion with him.
Ills He llth Is "Very It.ul.
But the excuse of .Kmperor William for
the resolutions arrived nt in the last cabinet
mooting for the Vvtthdrawal of the educa
tional bill , us well as far the proposition to
borrow -10,030,000 marks. does not satisfy the
people. Willlahi , it U said , hai been ill for
days in Berlin. Uo will ha obliged
to live for some tlmo In the country , and that
is why ho has goao totho , Chateau Ilubertus
with his physician , far. Louthold. Humors
arrive by way of Stj Petersburg and are
much exaggaratJa , tfainaso the St. Pdtora-
uiirg papers cantiot jWbihh any thing without
authority on palti'of censure relating to the
health1 of the emper/irl5' 'Ono rumor Is that
the ohip ror's.ill tijilth wl.ll 'render it
necessary to establish ! a council of regency
and recall Princo'Bismarclc.
At any rate it is certain that the court at
Vienna hns boon Disturbed for the last flftoou
days about William's health. It is openly
stated thai the emparor has n now disaaso in
the car , much moro soriou ) than anything
clsS Ho would have suffered much moro
than from r.ny preceding attack wore it
not for the faot that for three days nnd
nights ho was completely under the influence
of morphine. It Is onlv natural to suppose
that such prolonged sufferings have had an
olToctonhh brain. This will explain to a
certain extent somethings otherwise inex
plicable. For examolo , his determination to
sail himself the royal yacht at the Cannes
rojattn because Qioen Victoria dia not ro-
celvo him officially this year ; also putting an
interdict upon London Punch because it en
tertained a caticaturc of himself.
In u Dellc.ite. L'osttloi :
\Vhllo in such a iforvous condition every
thing is possible. Certainly , the crisis which
has occurred was unexpected , but it Is ex
plicable. Nobody , however , can toll how
It will end not evo'J the emperor himself.
If ho withdraws the loiscolairo , ho will have
the whole nobility arrayed against him ; if ho
does not , then ho will have the whole bour-
geolso , the whole people against htm. If he
refuses to accop't the resignation ot Chancel
lor von Caprlvi , the relations batwocn chan
cellor and sovereign will bring ablut another
crisis very quickly , . Kuropoan history proves
that such a political jumble never lasts
Should ho accept the resignation , who will
bo the next chancellor ) If ho should bo a
general , tbo offset upon Europa will be bad.
Snould ho be Dr. Wlgual , the minister of
flnanco , how can , 'a simple citi/.oa hona to
rule the omplro and wltuoata uniform play
the principle role In iti The future , there
fore , Is gloomy for poor Germany. She Is no
longer happy.
With the soverolgn ill , tin ) chief ot her
army under a cloud , it is Just as easy to
declare a war as to withdraw the lol scolairo ,
His recent occentrleltloj may Justus easily
affect foreign affair * us homo alTalra ,
I'rnneo Want * 1'o.icti ,
I must say that Francs is abioluloly in
favor of peace. The minister * noticed this
morning the bad tfficl produced by the re
ported resignation ; of von Caprlvi. They
hope that If William has anything In vlow in
regard to foreign jiffalrj that his allies and
kinsfolk will prov'erit a cataclysm , They
hope \Vllllam will'.not inspire war und for
the sake ot humanity that Uarmany will
overcome tao great. dlfHultlo3 with which
she U struggling .and the present crisis
which , alas , considering the character of the
little emperor will not be the last.
In Berlin in th'ocdurso of the day a now
excuse has boon given for the emperor's
going hunting , nnd a court bulletin says the
duration ot his ab'spuco cannot bo fixed until
the resignation ot ? fou Cnprivl and Count von
Sedlitz are made definite. Everything , it is
said , depends up. an the emperor , whoso ab
sence has produo&di'ou oil classes of the pop

pot n divorce. She had no testimony
r.t all m the city where iho llvod , md where
she formerly hns many strong nnd lull lontlnl
friends. The only two witnesses she called
in Parts wore n rook and n butler. To the
cook she had given n gold wntcti and had
allowed htm to maito extravagant charges for
provisions , for the purpose of securing hi )
testimony. This cook spent about fi",000
faancs n year for provisions , The butler
admitted on cross-examination ( hut he was a
habitual drunkard. The Judgment , there
fore , was based on the exclusive testimony
of Mrs. do Steurs , which was not supported.
"Why , if Mr. do Steurs made violent ex
hibitions of ill temper in the prcscnca of
others , did she not secure the testimony of
trustworthy poisons to support her allega
tions ! On the other hand do Stcurs brings
the testimony of upwards of twenty
witnesses amongst whom were own members
of Mrs. tie Steurs' lanilly , such in Waldorf
Astor and Mr. Carey * , who took sides with
Mr. tto Stours. Mrs. tlu Steurs has distorted
events In such n way ns to accuse her hus
band of things which fho had done herself.
For Instance , she once throw a hook nt his
bend In the presence of two persons. She
testified on the stand that Mr. do Steurs was
the ono who had thrown the book at her. "
"Uld this como as a surprise"1
"Thoro have boon many surprise * in this
case. The testimony disclosed n fact which
forced do Stouers to amend his answer. It
is usual for a court to always grant motions
to amend an answ2r lor good cause
shown. Hero there could bo no
doubt about Iho justness of do
Stours' donmads until the judge refused
it. Within n week the Judge forced us to
trial , oven before the original papers , con
sisting of letters from Mra. do Stours , doc
tors' cortilicatos and other important ex
hibits , arrived. Mrs. do Steurs' correspond
ence 'vith her husband stretchas over a
period of fifteen years , when they were trav
eling or otherwise apart from each other.
No woman would write her husband in such
n loving and affectionate manner if ho was
cruel to her. In ono letter she savs : 'I feel
much regret and remorse for all the times 1
have been cross with you. ' In another she
says : 'You cannot regret as much as I the
scones , and how much sorrow I feel for my
naughtiness. ' In 1851 she writes : 'I hope
you will return Wednesday , for I will not
conceal from you that those eight
days scorn months. ' In 1SS3 slio
writes : 'I am very sad at being separated
from you , dear husband. How happy I shall
be to see you again. ' On the 10th of August ,
1SS5 , she writes : 'My dear , dear husband
As I suppose that 1 shall bo asleep when you

near me.
"Do the letters as time goes on become loss
affectionate ! "
"No. For instance , on October 10 , ISSi ) ,
she ends a letter by the words , "Thousands
ami thousands of loving messages from your
loving , M. ' "
"That was about the last letter before
they separaredj"
"Yes. The manifest object of these pro
ceedings is made apparent by tlio second
marriage which Mt-3. d-s Steuros contracted
before the divorce was tnudo iinul. "
"Is this second man lure legal ! "
' Wo have every confidence in appeal nnd
it scorns impossible that the judgment
rendered in the case which has been so
irregularly tried , and m which a great part
of the evidence of one of Iho parties was ex
cluded , should not DO .sot asldo on appeal ,
which is already taken. Airs , do Steures
claimed a bona fide domicile at Sioux Falls ,
nnd I understand she has already left South
Dakota. Mr. do Sitouros' attorney at Sioux
Falls asked the plaintiff whether her object
In getting a divorce was to marry Xoo-
orowski. The question was excluded. "
"If your side is able to set aside these pro
ceedings , would do Stcurc3 UHu up the divorce
vorco proceedings on his side ! "
"That is u question I would prefer not to
answer ut protein. It might prcdjudlco do
Steures' future action. A roplv should bo
road In answer to the complaint in which Mr.
do Stcurs charged his wife with collusion in
having offered him a largo sum of money if
ho would allow her to obtain n , divorce with
out defending. Ttio judge again refused to
allow evidence in this point to ho taken "
Question , "You think , do you not , that the
case was conducted In un extraordinary nnd
irregular manner ! "
"I ihink the ciibO was brlskling with ir
regularities , I huvo Just rereivcd n letter
from Messrs. Couldert Brothers , In wsich
they say 'It seems to us plain that any fail-
court must sot nsiilo iln-i judgment. The ex
clusion of proof and tlio refusal to permit
amendment of tba answer constitutewo
think , such abuse of discretion in lo justlfv ,
indeed to call for , intcrfeienco by the higher
court. ' "
"What do you say , Mr. Cachard , about the
charges of cruelty ! "
"Do Steurs repeatedly denied to mo all the
charges of cruelty brought by the plaintiff.
In addition to his statement upwards of
twenty witnesses , mostly people of high
rank and of the greatest respectability , testi
fied that bo was only too Kind and goad
towards Mr ? , do Stcure. Mr. Vanlicr , con
sul general of tlio Netherlands , , who llvod in
the same house with Mr. and Mrs. do Slcurs
for llvo years and saw them every day , em
phatically declares that do Steurs was al
ways kind und full of attention for his wife.
Far from tituting her badly , ho acted towards
her In the kindest and most forbearing man
ner. Their servants nro all of the same opin
ion , with the two exceptions mentioned. "
"That sounds Ilk a pretty strong. "
"I have never seen n case lu which the re
sult seemed moro certain. I cannot under
stand to tills day hoi\ Mrs , do Steuw man

A tremendous raid upon tiio government
was planned for Saturday night but It went
all to pieces. Gladstone was too knowing to
compromise himself by taking any open part ,
but hovered in the background , ready to
coma in at the scalping lime that never ar
rived. Ilarc-ourt opened lire with heavy ar
tillery on the financial question , but was
easily repulsed by the chancellor of the ox-
chequer. The opposition brought up all Its
forces und was beaten by 71 , the largest ma
jority tbo government has yet had this bcs-
sion. Later the same night it raised that
number to three lluuros , owinje to the fact
that the section of Glaustoninns took to their
heels and rnn away.
ThchO victoilc- > have put the ministerial

no necessity for the government to give up
when it icceivcs a majority of 102 in its
favor. To bo snto this happened on St.
Patrick's night when many Irish members
were absent , hut in any case Iho Gladstonlan
army must have been smitten hip and thigh.
