Both SJdoft to Txert EV.TJ FC-.rt to Carry the liberals to Hsi-. e of Hal- four'H Haltering Kinns mi Trouble Feared Anotliei Srln-uin of the Gerninn Erappror. April '2. Tt is expected that the parliamentary election which is to be held in Windsor to-day will be one of the liveliest contests of late years. Both artics ara working hard, the Conservatives to maintain their niajoi iiy of about 2oO and the Liberals to overcome it by the popularity of their candidate awl the accessions to their ranks through tho increise of the vote in the district HNCC the lubt election. The Liberals have 03-'.: nir-.sjd an immense parade, one of the featuiv-, of which will be one of the Bal- four batteiing rams used by the gorern- ment's in various parts of Ireland to beat down the walls and doors of houses whose inmates refused admission to the bailiffs and police. The Conservatives have declared, that they will capture this engine of drot.-jction, and should they adhere to their resolve an exciting scene will ensue from v. hich may result many broken heads. The membei-s of the recently victorious Ox- ford crew are giving every possible assist- ance to the Liberals in their contest, the Gladstonian contest and Mr. Grenfell being an Oxford grrduate, and having coached the crew to victory. Seldom has there occurred a contest into which, both sides entered with such perfect confidence. RANDOLPH KEEPS MUM. Lord Randolph Churchill has declined the invitation to address a Liberal meeting on the subject of the conference of the peace commission at Berlin, a decision which meets the approval of his friends, who deprecate Ms making any public speeches on any sub- ject at this time. WILLIAM'S LATEST SCHEME. It is stated that Emperor William is pre- paring a scheme for a peaceful compromise of the exiting differences between Germany and France, and will submit the terms to the French government at an early day. The plan is said to be so entirely equitable that its tender by the more aggressive of the two powers cannot fail of cordial acceptance by the other, though it may possibly be sub- jected to modifications. Capt. Egbert Walpo e has, through his counsel, secured an order from the court de- manding the production of the diaries kept by Miss Vallery Wiedemann, the young Ger- man governess whose case against him for breach of promise and seduction, has been reopened and is still pending. By these jour- nals Walpole will attempt to prove grave misconduct on the part of Miss Wiedemann with a German military officer at the time she claims to have been completely under his own protection in the belief that she was his wife. SHOEMAKEBS' DEMANDS COMPLIED WITH. The protest of the East End shoemakers against being compelled to work in the re- lieving rooms, supplemented by a demand that they be provided with workshops, has met with a favorable response on the part of many of the masters, whose actions will doubtless be followed by the others. Already 130 employers have signed an agreement to provide commodious and convenient shops and this recognition of the justice of tap agi- tation against home labor based on sanitary grounds can scarcely mil to influence the conductors of other industries whose wares are finished in rooms also devoted to cooking, eating and Chancellor von Caprivi has announced his intention to abandon the system of inspired journaK wuich he believes to be unfair to other news; and productive of no ben- efit to th-i i' 101 ring authority.

Great ijy His The Prince Makrs a -peech. April 2. celcbnrion of Prince 75th birthday at Fried- richsrube yesterday was characterized by more enthusiasm and gene, al festivity than have marked any similar occasion since the observance of the old chancellor's natal day became an occurrence of national interest Five special trains loaded with Prince Bis- admirers mingled their freight with that of regular trains which landed thousands of persons at during the day, and tbe castle was thronged with visitors until a late hour. In addition to personal visits the ex-rbanMior re- ceived over 1.1WO birthday gratings by ma.il and wire and numerous presents. The em- peror sent his portrait.

Therefore it was unnecessary to cable to thotn. Doctor Tanner tisked whether the consent of Newloiindlaiid had been obtiiiued to the arrangement between England and France before thu beginning of the fibbing season. Sir James Ferguson said the modus vivcndi had not hofii received in Newfoundland when the last heard from there offic- ially. The last question, he said, might be left to the Newfoundland legislature to de- cide. ________ The Czar Reported 111. LOOTON, April Telegraph's cor- respondent at St. Petersburg says the czar has been taken suddenly ill -in. LAUGHLIN TOO LATE. MIKACULOUS ESCAPKS. He Didn't Get Back in Time to Stop tbe Syracuse Water Bill. ALBANY, April the senate last even- ing Mr. I aughlia offered a resolution recall- Ing the Syracuse Skaneateles water bill from the assembly and spoke against the bill. He said Mr. Hendricks had agreed not to move the bill while he was absent, as he was obliged to attend the Federal court at Utica. He had been unfairly treated. He had amend- ments which would have been adopted. He regarded the bill as one of the most danger- ous ever passed. Mr. Hendricks said Mr. Laughlin had agreed to be back by Wednesday, but did not return and Mr. Hendricks held the bill until the next Thursday. To have longer delated it would have been unjust to his constitu- ents. The bill would not cause one drop of water to be lessened in the canals. Mr. Laughlin's resolution was 1 (Mr, nays, 12. The following bills were ordered to a third reading: Mr. Pierson's excise ballot bill. The annual canal sinking fund bilL Mr. Connelly's bill for state supervision of of foreign lean and building associations. The bill reducing pawnbrokers' rates was recommitted, with orders to report before April 9. Adjourned. Simon's Opinion of the Kaiser. PAEIS, April Jules Simon, the head of the French delegation to the Berlin labor conference, expresses himself as surprised at the extent of the knovv ledge displayed by j Emperor William, who, he declares, is great- t ly changed and has been falsely represented to the French people for some months past. If the conference has no immediate practical result, M. Simon says, it will b3 useful as serving to '-met the fears of skeptics and as the signal for a new departure. M. Simon gives some interesting anecdotes of Prince Bismarck, among which is his account of the chancellor's introduction of himself to the conference by walking in and saying, "I am j I Humorist Peck Elected Mayor. i MILWAUKEE, April the municipal election yesterday the Democrats elected their entire ticket. George Peck, proprietor of Peck's Sun, Democratic candidate for mayor, has a plurality ov r IJrown (Rep.) of Brown is the present mayor and was j a candidate for re-elei-tion. N. S. Murphy, who was the late Matt Carpenter's law part- ner, headed a Citizens' ticket. The chief issue in the election was the Bennett compulsory education law. The Protestants favor the law, while tba Catholics wish it repealed. Hr. Peck was understood to side with the repealers. The fight on the Bennett law is expected to have an influence in state politics. Sir. Powderly Speaks at Hartford. HARTFORD, Conn., April Mr. T. V. Powderly spoke at Allyn hall last night to a large audience of workingrnen. Mayor Root and other prominent "len occupied seats on the platform. Mr. Powderly spoke chiefly on the aims and principles of the Knights of Labor. He said they favored eight i ours a day; the nationalization of railroads; equal compensation to both sexes for equal work; the freeing to the people of land now held for speculation, and the Australian ballot sys- tem. Mr. Powderly was frequently applaud- ed and held the closest attention of the aud- ience for two hours. Gain in the Democratic Vote. i CHICAGO, April Democrats elected their entire ticket here yesterday for asses- sors, collectors, clerks, supervisors, etc., in all the towns of the city, th" north, south and west towns, and for the firit time in the history of Chicago there is not a Republican town officer in the territory bounded by the old limits. The Democrats elected twenty aldermen and the Republicans twenty-one. One Citizens1 candidate and one Independent candidate for alderman were also elected. The council will be a tie with Mayor Creiger, Democrat, to cast the deciding vote. j SOME PECULIAR FREAKS OF THE CYCLONE IN KENTUCKY. A Family Finned In by Immense Tim- bers, but Hlocks ot Iron and Marble Curried Distances. Latest Place the Loss of Life at Seventy-five. LOLISVILLE, April are hundreds of the interesting and miraculous es- capes v, ith tbe tornado, showing the queerest sort of freaks of the wind. A block of iron casting weighing over pounds was into the "second story of the C'hesapoakp, Oirr> un i Southern rnihvay building near depot. Nobody knowj where it cainj a.ro.-.i and the nearest from v.hich could have come is nearly 100 yards awtiv. Great sheets of iron roofing were dropped upoti Dr. Barry's farm near Turner's fetation, four miles from the city on the Short Line. In the ruins of a house on West Main soreet, a clock was found clinging to the -wall. It was a large office clock, but no one in the vicinity had ever seen it before and no one knows where it came from. It was badly broken but the hands still pointed to p. m. A large slab of marble was found in a residence on West Madison street which was never there before. It will weigh over 100 pounds. At Baird's drug store, on Market above Ninth, two bird cages with the birds were blown in through the sky-light. The cages were not injured and the birds are as full of song as ever. When the building occupied by Brand Betbel, the tobacco men, on Green street, went to pieces a portion of the frame work dropped through the roof of a little cottage just east of the factory. It consisted of a heavy timber to which were mortised four upright pieces of timber. When this came through the cottage the family were .sitting around the table in the dir.ing room and the four uprights simply pinned them in, but did not hurt them in the least. It was one of the most wonderful es- capes yet heard of. SEVENTY-FIVE DEAD, the that is the Latest of Storm's Work in Louisville. LOUISVILLE, Ky., April state legis- lature this afternoon appropriated for the relief of tae sufferers by the cyclone. The latest returns indicate that the Dumber of dead will net reach over seve ity-five. Many of the victims' names were reported to the coroners twice, and several dead were reported under tw o names. One man was given three separate names in the list of killed, while an entire family of four persona was listed among the dead under two aames. Many who were supposed to have perished and were reckoned among the dead have since the excitement has abated been discovered to be safe. Business is re- suming, the weather is bright, and a feeling of energy and cheerfulness prevails. I'ublic Debt Statement. WASHINGTON, April The monthly pub- lic debt statement issued from the treasury department yesterday shows a decrease of the debt during the past month amounting to and for the first nine months of the current fiscal year of The The net surplus in the treasury to-day is S32.615.842, or about less than a month ago. Government receipts from all sources during March past aggregate or S3, than in March, 1889. Customs receipts dm ing the past month amounted to or more than in March a year ago, while in- tern-il revenue receipts were or S1.C50.1MA) greater than in March, 1889. Re- from all sources for the lirst three qmirtrrs of the current year aggregated and this seems to point to a revenue by the close of the fiscal year fully up to Secretary Wi- icon's estimate of f submitted in bis annual report last December.

Superintendent Hannan said that they might have opened earlier, but the repairs to be made were very extensive. The cause of the extra repairs is due to the fact that the lack of appropriation last year to fill the S3-a-day bill, caused the discharge of many men, and only such work was performed as was abso- lutely necessary. Work of repair was com upon the Coboes division on Monday, but tbe work on other divisions will not com- mence before April 10 or 12. 4 Kenrlng Match. YORK.
