NEW YORK, THURSDAY.APRIL 10, 1890. NO. 20 AN Mr. HUger Speculated to the Extent of and Died Before the Got Its IlHmls on Sous' ,Serond Experience of the pal Elections in Ohio. NEW April announcement was made y ver each other in bewildering confusion was the scene presented in the White House _ grounds on Easter Monday morning, and j case, which recommendation Baby McKee was one of the jolliest of the number. No such sight is elsewhere to be witnessed. It has long been observed here, and Easter Monday is looked forward to by the children of Washington with almost as much interest as Christmas. The day was balmy and bright, the grass green and the trees in the executive mansion grounds were awaking to the gentle touch of spring and putting forth their leaves. All the avenues of approach to the White House were early alive with children and nurses and parents. The inevitable basket with colored eggs was an invariable com- panion. Once upon the ground without con- cert of action, the little ones rolled theireggs down the sloping hills and tumble after them themselves. The music of the Marine band enlivened the scene yester 'ay. At 2 o'clock President Harrison, his wife and the McKee babies appeared on the White House balcony and were cheered by the vast crowd of orattling merry children. THE LITTLE PRINCES. They Are Frightened and DUgurted at Kaiser Wilhelm's Actions. NEW Yor.K, April Yates, iu his London letter to The Ti .bune says the federal princes of the empire have no sort of belief in tLe brilliant capacity of Emperor William. They are disgusted and terrified at his recent vagaries. 1 he Duke of Kaxe-Co- burg-Gotha and a dozen German royalties took advantage of his relationship to remon- strate in strong terms with the emperor, and he was justified in so doing, as the trusted ten the eonfkientiai adviser of his "s father and grandfather, but his protests were of no avail The duke was so indignant he refused to stay in Berlin for a chapter of the Black Eagle, bnt went off to Coburg in high dud- geon. The duke's sentiments are fully shared by the King of Saxony, the Prince Regent of Bavaria and above all the Grand Duke of Baden. It is expected in ;b-> diplo- matic circles in Vienna that Count Kalnoky wfll be succeeded by Count von Wolkenstcin, Austrian ambassador to Russia. the Ceremonies at Westminster. LONDON, April notable company was present in St. Margaret's church, Westmins- ter, yesterday morning, to witness the bap- tism of a grand chili of Mr. Gladstone, who, with Mrs. Gladstone and other nn-mbers of his family, v. as one of the earliest arrivals. After the ceremony the ex-premier was sur- rounded by the company, among'whom were a number of his political opponents and sub- jected to a general handshaking. On his way to London Mr. Gladstone was presented with an address at Weybridge. In acknowledge- ment of this compliment he spoke for ten or fifteen minutes on the political questions of the day and took occasion to roundly dc- Bounce the government for its recent perfid- ious practices. The present ministry, he de- clared, were merely usurpers and intruders and dared not submit their claims to repre- sent a majority of the electors to the test of a general election, though they would be forced to do so ere long. ON MB. MATTHEWS. The storm of indignation against Home Secretary Matthews by the hanging of Richard Davies yesterday is raging fiercely and increasing in violence as the facts in the case become known. It is now alleged that the appeal for clemency which was made to the queen elicited a telegram from her ma- jesty to the home se- -rotary recommending the exercise of executive forbearance in the it is charged Mr. .A atthews deliberately ignor d. This ent has added very much to the in- tensity of the fueling against ?.J r. Matthew.-, and his disregard of the queen's suggestion will likely Iw utilized by his in the house of commons as a lever to oust hirnfn m the cabinet if possible. The action of the American house of rep- s pension committee in reporting in favor of granting a pension to Mr-.

The Sampson Low company, the publishsrr of Stanley's new book, "D'arkest Africa." have completed arrangements to i suo 000 copies of thr- undertaking which they deem abundantlv warranted by the number and extent of the orders for th" book already received. The book will printed in fifteen different languages. eomuiendcd iho House (uiumiltee on Agriculture. WAS-II-MII-OV. April Funs- Bton of tlic houso committee on ;rvriculturo, submitted K report yesterday n commending of the Uutterwoith bi'l to vcnt dealing in options and futiucs by im- posing ml taxes on dealers in llu-m. 1 he report is signed by the full committee. It is BtaU-d m the report that the bill is intended to apply to that class of transactions con- ducted in the bucket shops and grain pits of the country known as "puts and in- cluding the whole range of mere speculative gambling in fictitious farm products. "It does not affect says the legitimate trader or dealer in farm staples. It seeks to and docs impose an internal revenue tax upon those dealers in grain, corn, cotton and pork, who, as a rule never see, own or handle a peck or pound of the articles they sell. It applies to dealers whose transactions have the least possible reference to the supply and still less refer- ence to the demand for consumption; who are not concerned whether the harvests are blighted or bountiful. "The bill, which in terms affects transac- tions for future delivery which are innoc nt in themselves and do no harm to anyone, is yet intended to reach that class of speculators only who sell what they do not own, with no purpose or intent, near or remote, to deliver what they sell; who require little capital or stock in trade, and yet who sell in the bucket shops and pits of the United States every thirty days more wheat than is grown in the whole world m one year, thus in great lieasure destroying legitimate trade and riving merchants and traders engaged therein from the field, and forcing the price j of farm products below the cost of produc- tion, rendering the celling of the farmer un- profitable and degrading toil."
