SALISBURY'S BOLD GAME THREATENING AN IMMEDIATE APPEAL TO THE COUNTRY. EnOLERABLE POSITION OP THE TORIES__ WHAT FLEDOK8 SALISBURY FRESH TALC OF MB. GLADSTONE BE- TURNI.N'O TO OFFICE. Bv Commercial Cable from Our Own Cor- respondent, Juno nearly a fort- night EnRlimd has pot alonp quite com- fortably without a responsible Govern- ment, hut tho lost 'Jl hours hnvodevelopt-d symptoms of nn upljr strain which may easily lead to such a constitutional crisis as the hot heads on both Ridea BO nearly brought on in tho franchise deadlock of a year ago. Tho most important as well as the most interesting feature of the exist- ing trouble is that It Is wholly without a precedent. Muny Premiers huvo under- taken tho tiwk of forming a Ministry out of a minority, but Lord Salisbury's case is unique in that ho is estopped from dissolution; and therein lies tho cruol hardship of tho situation for him and ita pleasant aspect for tho Hadlc-als. There is a fljced period for him to stay in office. If Mr. Gladstone wero unuble to stay in oCQco because of an nct-iclentnl majority of 12 against him how much more Intolerable would offlco bo to Lord Salisbury with a t-hronio adverse majority of a hundred? L'nlesa a majority is pivon to him It U said ho will hurry tho session throiiph. This purpose explains his only really important demand upon the Liberals, viz., tbat they shall agree to pivo Government matters tho precedence every day and po into com- mittee without dubnte. Tho Kadiwils nro pressing Mr. Gladstone to doclino to yield to this demand because they have their hearts sot on enjoying themselves to tho utmost pommeling, tea.iins. and. bully- the helpless minority Ministry, and hare no mind to shorten this puniyh- ment by even a siuplo day. This Is tho real hitch. SALISBURY'S HOLD MOVE. It ia characteristic of Lord Salisbury that he should think of cutting himself free Irom tho cords with which the cun- ning Radicals have bound him by action of tho boldest, if not tho moat dutiKcrous, nature. Tim Redistribution of treats bill, the Iliml of which ho blocked yesterday, puts In operation tho entire reiirriiupemuut of constituencies at the end of the present Parliament, while the Franchise- bill only at tho curliest itlos new voters m November. Hence, if tho Redistribution of bents bill wore passed, dissolution before Autumn would involve an election in tho new dis- tricts without new voters. In answer to the Kadicnl refu-nl of tolerance, Lord Sal- isbury block-i Redistribution of SeiUs bill, and this action is clearly equivalent to a threat to dissolve. Parliament immediate- ly, and to.mako tho appeal to the country In the old districts and to tho old electors. It is difficult to believe that this is moro than a of bluff, but it cer- tainly is a bold and extensivo one, and tho panic of rage into which It throws tho Dally Sens to-day shows it 13 proving to bo fairly effective. It had been as- sumed so steadily thai there could bo no possibility of a dissolution till tho now electors were qualified that the mere hint of such a thing now fairly takes tho politi- cians'breath away. It Is tolerably cloar that such a uiovy would provo a pravo calamity in tho future to tho Tory Party, hut it would have its temporary advan- tages, which attract some of the party leaders, and it is regarded as a thing possible to bo done. I believe, how- over, there is no serious intention of do- ing more than frighten tho poorer Radi- cals with the terrors of double election ex- penses, and that Lord Salisbury will have his Cabinet ready to kiss hands on Tues- day. CABINET SPECULATIONS. The personnel of the Cabinet is still un- settled to a large extent. Tho idea of giv- inc to poor, patient Stafford North- cote the empty dignity of the First Lord- shua of tho Treasury, for which thort  painting. After going a short distance ono of tho swindlers entered a place to suo, as he said. If a lottery ticket ho neld had drawn a Tho other suBBC.sted that ho anil Mr. Perry go alonir. After entering thu follow with tbo ticket handed It to a mun behind a desk, and tho latter announced: Well. Sir, you hnvo drawn but as 1 do not pay tho fractional pnrls of tho drawings I shall give you but the cvon 8500, and ho hnudcd tho ticket man S5UO In hills. Mr. Perry's escort, turning to him. said: "Now, Unclo Clark, you must try your but tho old gentleman was wlJo nwako nnd strenuously refused to tako any part In tho scheme. Well." said hla escort, then 1 will buy a ticket and give you half; you'll accept It, won't you. Unclo I lurk ho continued. Mr. Porrv did not want money bud ouougli to ncoopt tho proIToroiJ chance." However, tho ticket wna purchased, with tho understanding that Unclo Clark" should havo half what It drew. Some manoeu- vring was srono through with, ami It was an- nounced that tbo ticket had drawn but they rofuw'l to hand over tho money until tlio fortunate ticket ho der anil Mr. Porry had ouch a papor to tho effect that, thoy were worth that amount of money. Well." said the ticket holder, "I can soon ee- tabll3n tho fact that I am worth that amount of monov can't you. Unclo ropllod Mr. 1'crrr. "I can If I want to." At this Juncture of the proceeding Mr. Perry arose and walked out of tho house followed by ono of tho mun who said: Uncle Clark. I hopo you won't say anythmgabout this." "Yes I said Mr. Perry; "I will notify tho Ont policeman 1 meet of your nefarious You thought I WIIB a grocny but you made a mistake." Tho police was set to work, but tho sharpers had flod. Tno object probably was to got Mr. Perry to bis name to a draft or check which tho trio could got cashed nt once. ANNOYED BY HOODLUMS. YOtJNQ B17FFIA.NS CAUSE THE DEATH OF AN OLD FRENCHMAN. PHILADELPHIA, June Tho crowd of hoodlums who infest tho neighborhood of Fifth and Christian streets wero tho cause of a foeblo old mun'a death last night. On that evening they congregated in force In ttio vicinity. Somo of their number bad suOlcicut money to buy beer and liquor for tho crowd, and by 10 o'clock they had drank enough to Instill them with a BDlrit of deviltry. Shortly after that hour Fran- cis Xavier Ganvoy, a decrepit Frenchman ot about 00 years of limped down Fifth-street on Oil way uomo. In thg rear of No. 713 Houlh FlftU-streot.

TWO LAWYERS COME 7O BLOWS A TEXAS COUET ROOM. FOHT WORTH. Texas, Juno Ucht occurred In tbo District Court room last night which camo near resulting fatally. Tbo trial of young Stephens, charged with tho murder of Dr. Wallace, at Mansfleld. this county, had Just beou opened, tho cntlro day having boon spent In Impaneling a Jury. Tho attorneys woro tired and petulant. Henry Furman, tbe leading counsel for tho de- fense, became embroiled In n controversy with County Attorney Uowlin, and tho two men finally camo to blows. Kvory ono expected to see bloodshed. Tho court room was quickly emptied. IJoth men wore undoubtedly armed and each only waiting for tho other to draw. In tho rciaat of thli confusion Judge Iteckman Icnpod from tho bench Into tho arena. As ho did so Lawyer Wenro, whu Is associated with Bowlln In tbo prosecution, excitedly struck tlio Judiro a very severe blow under tbo oar. Tho Judgo was dazad for un but, bomga powerful man. Instantly recovered bis balance and let fall a elodifo-hacnracr blow that prostrut- od Lawyer Wcarc. Turning bis attention to tho principal combatants, who this time had clinched and wore committing mayhom upon ono another's oars an J tho Judgo com- manded tho Jury to arise and quell thu riot; at the sumo llrno ho seized ono of the combatants and two Jurymen took hold of tho other, thus fepuratlng them.

OTTAWA, Ontario, Juno fow days ago tho Minister of Inland Itovonuo managed to push a resolution through the committee mak- ing It Imperative tnat after July 1. ItteT, no spirts subject to excise duty can be entered for borne consumption unless they havo been man- ufactured at least one year, and after July 1. spirits must bo nt least two years old boforo being taken out of bond. It was u clever dodtto on tho part of tho Government to place In tho hands of a fow distillers a monopoly which It would bo difficult to break down, and It is only when almost ton late that tho public bavo awakened to the fnct and aro pourlnsr In protests against tho measure In tho shape of memorials osKlng that tlio bill may not become a law. They represent thnt there nro now tlvo dtfttillcrs In tho Dominion who will monopolize tho wholo trade If tho uct is passed, us no now distillery can afford to start In business In competition with those already established. Tho trick lias occn exposed and tho bill will certain- ly be withdrawn. ________ A VICTIM OF THE CYCLOXE. MALON CITY, Iowa, Juno most Startling Incident of tlio late cvclono through this section Is brought to public notice to-day by a messenger from Owen Township, a settled region or this county. On tho morning following tho great storm. In a field on tho Pholps farm. In whit is calleJ the O'Hurrow dis- trict, a llltlo boy bnby, apparently J years old. was found lylnir In a dying condition, with only a night dress on liLs person. Nobody knew nor have they boon nblo to le.irn since to whom tho child belonged or from whence bo came. Tho babe lived but ft short time after bolng plcko'l up. Tno remains were kept us long as ponslble fora claimant, but none coming a description waa taken tor future and the ht- tlo "ellow wna buried yesterdnv Thut tiia nndo dropped the babe adratts of no question., but where It ploiced bJm UP la still PASSING. A WEAfiY KIGHT 'GEN. GRANT ANNOYED BY WELL MEANING VISITORS. BEQOmrNO LESS OF THE DOCTOR'S CAJLK, BUT STILL SHOWING NO A rLKASINQ INCIDENT OF THE DAY. MOUNT McGBEQOB, N. Y., Juno Grant spent less tlmo outdoors than any- day Blnoo bo has bocn boro. Ho did not como out until midday and rot I rod vary soon there- after. The air was balmy, tho thermometer ranging near but a night entirely without Bleep, as ho thought, and of exceedingly fitful rest, according to those who uro disposed to hold thu brightest aide, ever to view, had loft him fur from tho condition that bad boon anticipated when It was thought yesterday that ho was beginning to get tho benefits of tbo mount- ain air. A fortunate circumstance In connection with tho General's wakctulnoaa last Bight was tbat It was not attended witb unusual pain. Coughing contlnuod, but in far less se- verity than was foarod from tho painful experi- ences of Thursday nlaht and of yesterday. Thero was nothing to disturb tho family, who had retired early, and tho doctor slopt after o'olock'tbis morning, having mado an extra In- jection of morphine- boforo bo retirod. Tho nurse had a leas eaar time, for. although noth- ing waa required of him ooyood changing tbo GoDoral'g pillows and position and administering nourishment at regular Intervals, that task kept him busily employed. Just what tbo trouble was no ono eeoms pre- pared to Buy dcunlloly. Tno doctor suiU moniul occupation probably bad something to do with it. us tbo General dad mndo a memorandum lust night of some Insertion bo wiintea to mako to- day la bis book. Tbo change waa not nlgnltleant and was mado to-day In a very fow minuted when tlio Uonerol wrote u paragraph and inill- cntoU whoro uo wanted It inserted iu tho volumi- nous proofs tbat ho has with him. A good deal of satisfaction was Iclt by tho family over tho memorandum ho bad made Docuuao it seemed to them that unless ho wore much Im- proved he would not Do thinking of his book. Uut beyond tho paragraph which tho memoran- dum noted, and wblcb ho disposed of to-day In lij minutes, hU thoughts havo apparently bcon as far away from tbo book as it is possiulo lor them to be. Tho mass of proofs has been un- touched oxcopt In that particular. Another ex- planation ascribes the night trouble to nervous exhaustion duo to tUo annoyances of yusturuny's visitors. Hla condition cannot stand even such trilles as well meaning cullers arc apt to Im- poso. When ho was obliged yesierdiiy to go Indoors because. as ho put It, ho could htay outsldo only at tho risk of being talked to death by his amiable friends, ox-Judge Hilton and Dr. Gray, his nerves wero on eiliio and ho did not aualn recover tho quiet com- posure of which tliu Barony of his dlsooso bos never robbod him. Tho family woro disposed at the tlmo to attribute bit Impatlenco to more momentary weariness, but to-day, having them- solvos enjoyed tho Urst pood reat since their 111- nvnl, and being thus disposed to put tho leu.st harmful construction on lust night thoy any thut the annoyance of tho visitors und tho mosiiuitoes. which wero out in force last night, wore probably tho most active auuscd of discomfort. Whether any of those things contributed to tho poor nliight, or whether It was largely duo, as formerly, to lassitude and a high nervous and low physical condition, or whatever tbe cause, to-duy's record shows that by morning tho oulso hud fnllon to 08, or 4 below normal, and that ho was still under too much depression to care to movo about, oven though ho couJJ not bleep. His llrst retreat within tho alter be cnmo out nt noon was to write tho paragraph for Incur lion In tho unru- vlscd proofs of bis book. Then, after a brief rest, ho cnmo out for a few minutes again. Tno beauty ot tho landscape and tho sweet air failed to appeal to him as lormorly. Ho was too weary and languid to enjoy them. When he next went Indoors it was to seek tbe pillowed chair m hl3 own room. Ho remained thero for about two hours, napping nearly half or that time. Thero was tho upual Infliction of sightseers and would-bo visitors by tho afternoon train. Tho General hod Just como out from his nup, dressed iu a new suit of dark gray, when tliu train stopped purling at tho top of tho hill. Ho saw tho visitors coming up tbo wnlk nnd bent his head over tho outsprcnd pages of a newspaper. Many of them etopocd to gnxoat him. A party of boys and girls from the Saratoga tilth School grouped themselves almost directly below whoro ho sat. Presently tho less timid of tbom started for tho steps of tbo porch, tho others falling in primly. A lad who seemed to bo tho leader stepped forward and mado a ouloglstio speech, express- ing Tor Iniuself und his friends the hopo that tho mountain air would restore tho Q on oral, and then from Dencath tlio shawl of ono of tho irlrls a bouquet waa produced, which was banded ovor with duo bowing and scraping. Thon tho little party walked de- murely away until they roachotl tbo bottom oT tho stops, when thoy scampered away glad thut it was ovor. Tho General seemed pleased with the attention. Toward evening, when ho bad como out again and sat and walked about a fow minutes Dr. Douglas wont to tho sick room; tho General followed. An examination showed no otmniro in tho symptonn as pre- viously rtotoil, thu throat and neck remaining as bofom. Tho pulso dad leaped to 70 bents. Ho was rathor more weary than at tho samo time last nielli ami had less color, but mado no spe- cial complaint. lie was easily persuaded to re- tiro to his room for tho nltrht ut dusk. Expectations that early retirement to bis room would bo compensated In tho General's worn- out condition with eJceo during at least tho fore part of tho night wrro fully met. Ho awako only a llttlo while after tho doctor bad treated dim and Injected morphine, and by 0 o'clock, having meanwhile been but llttlo disturbed by coughing, ho was oslcop. A Unlit burr.cd brightly In tho offlco, where proof revision wont on for two hours but neither tho doctor nor tho nurse had occasion to attend tho General up to midnight, when all indica- tions pointed to a restful night. TRYING TO UNSEAT CARTER HARRISON. CUICAGO. June Tho committee In charge of tho proposed contest against thu elec- tion of Mayor Harrison bold a mooting this afternoon with closed doors, und It Is now un- derstood that tbo subject under consideration was tho bill of contest prepared by Messrs. Green and Forcli, tho chancery solicitors retained by tho committee. Tho bill will bo filed early next week. From a reliable fiourco It Is learned that thu bill demands In tliu llrsi place a recount of tbo ballots cast for Mayor and Treasurer, and alleges that In a num- ber of precincts tho count mado by tho election officers was fraudulent; secondly, tno bill al- leges ovor 1.000 cases of fraudulent voting, and makes spociflo charges of fraud, for which am- ple evidence has been collected. The contest will bo pushod vigorously and la backed bv Influential cltlzons of both parties who arc anxious to have, tbo fullest light thrown upon tho methods employed by political work- cm tn carry elections against tho will of tho people. Mayor Harrison how announced bis In- tention to llitht tho contest and to tako advan- tage of every technicality, but chid declara- tion naa only Intcnsllled tho public de- mand for a contest. Mr. Jp-wett. tho Chairman of the Contest Committee stated In an Intei vluw tn-cay thut the contest was bucked bv too strong ovidcnco to pormlt Its fatllni: to unseat Carter Harrison, but ho added thati It would bo con- ducted in a Hlrictly non-partisan spirit, as tho committee only desired to have tho charges of fraud sifted to tho bottom and to vindicate tho elective francnise In Chicago.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
