W only an asteroid.  duL-e Russia to sutetituto discretion for territorial ambition, absolutely imperatives  The position of Russia on tbe Afghan frontier after two years of careful quiet and unrestricted preparation is much stronger than that of England in any part of tbe ameer's' dominions, and the first stages of actual war in that re^oh could not fail to result disastroui^ly to English arms and firmly establish Russia in possession of the most strongly fortified positions in Afghanistan. It will therefore be seen tbat an alliance of sufficient power to awe the czar into relinquishing his ptu^oœ  eÉlate dî ffi^e limêer the latt«r's  demise Is of great importiwoe to England, at least until she can get ready to contest Ku^ sia's claims individually with equal chances of success.  On the other hand the appointment} of a pro-Russian minister in Servia has deployed Austria of any hope of King Milan's aœist-ance in checking Rusua's pretensions in the Balkans and made England's assistance on the eve of the election of a prince of Bulgaria to whose accession to the throne Russia will undonhtwlly object, doubly welcome  As for Germany's share in the beueflti (d the alliance she has everything to gain and nothing to lose. By passively interfering' to prevent Russia from precipitating war in Afghanistan and lending her influence to a bloodless settlement of tbe BulgMi ian question, she acquires two active allies in suppressing the warlike ebullitions of France until the arrival of the time when it shall seem advantageous to provoke or declare war against her implacable enemy^ --------  ISensatlonal Keports of Evictions.  The libei-al papers are filled with blood curdling accounts of the bratality of the police in enforcing evictions, and Hfssert that the resistance of the tenants and tbe violence of tbe spectators at Bodyke have been provoked t^ the unjustifiably inhuman conduct of tbe constables rather than by the speeches of Mr. Pavitt and his friends.  Arrival of the Crown Prince.  The feature of the elaborate preparations for the queen's jubilee is tbe arrival of the Crown l-'iiru-e Frederick William of Prussia, who overshadows all of the royal visitors in importance and interest The conflicting reports as to the gravity of his malady have added greatly to pubbc concern in his movements and have vastly increased his popu-laritj', and next to the «lueen hei=solf he will unquestionably be the most conspicuous figure of the celebration. The work of deco-' rating and preparing to illuminate houses is alnio»t complets and liUis rumaiu» to be dvse bi other ways to put London in readiness to b^pn the fcstivitii».  The Yacht Kaee Uninterestlnr,^  Inttirest in the jubilee yacht race is to a great degree decreased because of the absence of the Thistle from the list of contesting, ■boats, and the extraordinary length of tbe course, which prevents spectators from witnessing anything but tbe start and finiâh, except by cliance and at niucb expense and inconvenience. 1 bt! tîi-nésta is tbe favorite in the betting, which, however, is very bgbt  Tbe Prince in a Fa|>  London, June 15.—Nothing further has been heard from the yachts which started yesterday from Sont^ End in tbe jubilee rat e sirre the report that at 4 O'clock the (Jciu■^Ut WII!. leading the other yachts, which wti-e saiiUiii irlose together and they are be-liev' il tu 1«? lying-to in the dense fog which preVIIils.

Thiit ¡Hit t Ls enveloped in a think fog, and as the «atI'ls in that district are infested with collier sU'uniei-is, which move about with the utmoi;t recklehsness in all kinds of weather, the safety of the prini-e becomes a matter Of anxiety to the official.-^ ^waiting him.

New York, June 15 —«Glen. J. L. Negley has returned from his visit to the new iron distfice ot'fBe south, lying arouiia Birxiiing-ham, Ala. The general may claim a sufficient knowledge of irra productions to give bis opinions weight His discoveries l«ul blm to believe that the iron sceptre has not passed from Pittsburg and is not likely to until a field greater than Birmingham shall have been found.  TjlsB ore beds of Birmingbiun, he says, are not in a cluster, nor is the territory an unbroken tied of ore witl/ rich surface outcrop-pings such as some investigators have described - The mines of coal and iron are separated widely, and Pittsburg, ho says, is actually nearer its fuel iu miles, time and cost than the new bonanza. Moreover, the production of coke Is still in a very undeveloped state, and the product of their furnaces is of a very indifferent quality. The boom in real estate has been tbe creator of much of the seeming wealth claimed for the district, and its actual status cannot be accurately determined until the inevitable reaction sets in.  Kosser'« Uald on Sherman.  Mutneapolis, Minn.,^ June 15.—Gen. T. L. Rosser, whose recent attack on Gen. Sheridan's proposed military trip up the Shenandoah valley aroused so much discussion, has return^ to this city.  He eaid this morning: "My position is being wheUy mLsunderstood.I've made the attack in no spirit of iiatred t<j Northern soldiers. It was indecent for Sheridan to camp in tbe valley where be had ruthlessly bumeii the homes of harml«s wumen. I would say the same thing if Confederate Gen. Jubal Early should visit C'bambere-buif, tbe town he had burned wantonly. Early ought to have l>een hung for the act and the citizens would be justilieil in tarring and feathering him if be came. Tbe South will receive any living Union general with open arms except Pojw or Sheridan, Tlie latter it as 1 do ftt»d ii» not gouig. We want to welcome all Union soldiars who were not barbarous and cruel."  Csntral and other noi thorn New England roads over ite new line.  As AnU-British Feeling.

PrrrsBt'bg, June 15.—The coke operators who have iiot granted the per cent ad  vance in wages to their employes have taken no further action in the matter. There ia no intimation yet of their giving the advance, but tbcy uru still maintaining the position that they bav«? held sim-e the arbitration.  It Is probable that the operators wifi meet to-day and confer with the bla.st furnace men wbo will hold a meeting. The iurnace men have given as their ultimatum that they will not receiv«i,any coke at (2 even if tbe stiike is settled. At to-day's meeting they are expected to emphasize this determ.i^tion in formally notifying the coke operators of how they Btatld. it is argued that this will make the o{ieratorB mora united not to give in to the coke strikers.  At work On w Mystary;  New York, June 15.—The body of Lena 2iom, which was found in a marsh in tbe upper part of the dty after the girl had been missing for a week, was exhumed yesterday and a careful autopsy made. It was decided thatsbe had met with violence and had afterward been drowned. The most plausible theory is that sbs i^waa mangled, by dugs whose owners threw ber into thp marsh to avoid responsibility for the injuries infiicted. Tbe German, French and Italian societies have offered $5,000 reward for the diKx>v«y of the girl's murderers arid have employed a private detective to work the case up^ Inspector Bym«^ men are also at work.
