Opposed WASHINGTON March SunGazette of tills city will tomorrow publish an inter view with ExSpeaker Carlisle upon tho at titude of the Democratic Representatives towards several important measures pond ing before ttio House In the Interview Carlisle first attacked tho Lodge bill pro viding for Federal regulation of elections for Representatives lie says The Democrats in the House are a unit In opposition to tho first clause which in practice would make the bill operate only in certain sections of tho country If we are to have such a lnw it should operate everywhere alike and not bo loft as tho Lodge bill leaves it to operate Jioro and there as may be requested by a given num ber of voters in this or that Congressional district Tho intention Is in other words to control tho machinery of elections for Representatives In Congress from Southern Congressional districts and from a fow Northern districts This we shall oppose Continuing Carlisle estimated that to carry out the provisions of the bill it would require the employment officers of election atan expense of from to ovory your which would iiavo to bo mot by tho United States Treasury Tf tho Australian system were adopted as proposed It would necessitate a vast in oreaso in tha number of polls Then too ho argued tho bill is so complex that its re tirementscon Id never be clear to illiterate voters or to ignorant Republican election officers In the South and a legal election would bo Impossible Said he The bill would be a prolific source of In numerable contests continued Car lisle with groat emphasis that is what they want They could take advantage of every irregularity that might and will arise under this multofarlous Ho con tended that the bill did not come within the meaning of tho clause of tho Constitution conferring upon Congress tho right to pre scribe tho manner of elections It deprived the Governor of tho right to Issue cortlfl oatos of election and in fact took away from tho States all control of elections Carlisle further said that the McOomas bill providing that elections for Represent atives bo hold in districts as they wore con stituted at tbo last election was open to the same obloctlon In conclusion Carlisle said that while the extravagant expendMires of tho party in power and the proposed partisan laws were imnortant questions they would not bo tho overtopping Issues of the fall campaign but that the great question would continue to bo the relief of the people from unneces sary taxation by the tariff law A SENSATIONAL STORY left off Is also charged with calling men

March by As sociated North German Ga zette tonight supplies some light on the causes leading to Bismarcks resig nation It says that the Chancellor did not wish to depart from the Cabinet order of 1852 relating to intercourse between tlio Prussian Ministers and tho Sovereign but desired to retain his control and right of cooperation Tho opposition he encouraged in thematter finally brought clearly to him tho necessity for resignation Tho negotiations between Bismarck and WIndthorst with reference to the Guelph fund and tho attitude of the Clerical party were only connected with tho crisis so far as iho Chancellor refused to subject his Inter course with the Deputies to any control No steps havo been taken by tho Ernperoivper sonally or by tho Sovereigns or any of the Federal States to induce Bismarck to re main at tho head of the Ministry pf Foreigu Affairs This tone of the Gazette only feebly cates the anger which exists in Bismarokian circles The papers hitherto have avoided touching on the dangerous and delicate question of tho Emperors interference an Ministerial responsibility Tho Gazettes frankness will lead to a discussion which may awaken the Emperor to tho fact that a personal direct system of government has not yet obtained supreme hold upon tho German people The complacency with which Bismarck s retirement is now regarded may soon b placed with regret that the country is at the mercy of a selfwilled autocrat Tho Cabinet order of has always been held by Bismarck as interpreting tho Prus sian constitution to mean that tlio President of the Ministry ought to appoint his own Cabinet choosing men having political opinions and principles iu harmony witi his own The Emperor refused this and maintains tho right of themonarch to appoint Minis istors having direct responsibility tho to the Crown The appointment of Baron Von Berlopsch as Minister of Commerce was the thin edge of tho wedge Tho direct instructions tho Emporor gave Berlopsch affecting tho econ omic policy of tho Empire evoked a warm remonstrance from tho Chancellor The Emporor in a written communication sen by himHo Bismarck only last week ex plained his views on xnonarohial perogatives aud conviction that tho Chan cellors claims were uu encroach ment upon the rightsl of the sovereign and his determination to exorcise a general and absolute control About the same time direct to Windtherst and other leading Clericals from persons in tho Emperors confidence aiming to take the guidance of tho negotiations out of Bismarckshands produced a climax of tho crisis OnSatvrday tho Emporor got as he prob ably desired intimation of Bismarcks on Tuesday in a closely written document of twenty folios which ho has kept from the papers the Em poror received tho Chancellors reasons for Bfsmarokhas not parted with the Em poror Iu sulks or apparent anger for tho Emporor followed his recommendation by appointing General Von Oaprlvi Since the crisis Prince Bismarokhas held daily recep tions which havo boon crowded Bismarck appeared and seemed more alert cheerful chatty and bright than for years Count Herbert Bismarck persists in Ins m tontiou to withdraw from the Foreign Ofllce at the earliest possible moment Herr Mig uel Bemiigson andHontzpeter are men tioned as possible ministers and Count Eulenberg now civil Governor of Nassau as successor of Horr Herf urth In the Minis try of tho Interior Advices from Vienna point to tho retire ment of Count Kalnoky Kalnokys policy suited Bismarck but not Emporor Franz Josef who will now seek a man

Chairman of the Committee on Public Buildings and Ground stated that San Diego had a population of and tho building was to accommodate the Cus tom revenue office and land office as well as postoffioo luRjills inquired us to other appropriations made for public build ings in California at the present session Stanford was not prepared to furnish tho iiuor nmtioii asked but relurred Ingalls to the proper department lugalls said the answer was rather varue HO wan ted to ascertain in regard to all these bills whether tho buildinxs were needed aud what ap propriations might be needed for them in order to vote inlelUceiitly There was ageneral com plaint he said iu the press that appropriation for public buildings wove exhorbitunt aud ex travagant He submitted that the Senators were entitled to information called oil to vote this largo sum He thereiure repeated his request for information Stanford said that if the Senator wanted a detailed report he Stanford would furnish it to him but could not do so from memory Sherman said all he desired was to have a pen eralrule applied to public Ihroeor four public buildings were asked for in Ohio but he thought was the largest appropriation allowed for them in such towns as Day ton and Springfield He wanted to see a fair divide Spooner a member of the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds said the propriety of ap propriating for San Diego was not allecied by ap propriations for other places in Ciilitorina Senator from California Stanford had brought tbo attention ofthe Committee to facts which Lie could not now recall in detail and satisfied the committee that the appropriation lor ban Diego a place rapidly growing in importance was nor too large The cost of a site there would absorb a considerable portion of the appropriation

cities in Southern California which could hardly comprehend Tho Senators might as well understand that tins was a great country and had great needs San was a very important plase and itsbusi ness was increasing rapidly In many growing western towns public buildings had been appro for but before completed they were found to bo inadequate He instanced Los Angeles as i caso of that kind and said that Southern Cali fornia hadso grown in population since the last appropriation that Vandoner its Representative in tho House now represented a constituency ol about If San Diego increased in the same ratio in tho next ten years the building provided for in the bill will not be large Spoouer said the bill aslntroduced provided for an appropriation of only that he hadre lorred the matter to the supervising architect of the Treasury and he officially recommended au appropriation of Morgan said that six years ago San Diftgo had not more than 4000 inhabitants it had a5 000 or It was a remarkable instance or the expansion of American enterprise and indus try Its houses were on a magnificent scale and the city surrounding the beautiful harbor was somethingto excite the pride of Americans Its harbor not only admitted the very largest shins and steamers on the Pacific but was perfectly landlocked Stanford withdrew his suggestion to let tha bill lie over till Monday He thought the Senate was now prepared to pass it Hearst said ho was glad to know that many Senators had visitedCalifornia last and had brought away such good impressions of it Jie spoke of San Diego as having a beautiful harbor and said its population and industries were crow ing very fast It was a railway center and was becoming a military depot being only hfteen miles from the Mexican line He wonld not have spoken of the growing importance of San Diego as the Senators bad spoken of it it miRhfcbe supposed that ho was bulldozing the Senate He regardedhimself o s the silent man of the While ho was up he wanted say that his colleague and he intended to present to the 5euate at this session their claims for public all over the State of California They intended to do it honestly They did not they wanted only to ask for but they expected to gotevery dollar they asked Tbev expected to show that they were entitled to it and they would prove it by every senator who had been to California last year and he thanked goodness that there had been a good lot or them there and some of the best of them He expected to ask for a postofflce in Sun Francisco to ask a largo sura of money for it and to have the Senate vote lor it I hey had put up with a temporary building there a sort of shed that had to be propped up for the last twenty years 1 hey had tSfo getalong with it but it was down iu the mud flats and dark part of town where no lady would venture at night and would hardly venti re in the daytime Ho would venture to lay that no senator who had visited San Fran ciscohad been driven to see the postoffice as out of thesights of the city Mitchell remarkedthat the postoffice of San Francisco was a disgrace to the city and Nation course it is The time allowed for debate having expired

hardly one more Just than that for San It was one of the three most important haiBois on the Pacific Those three San Diego at the extreme southwest of Califor nia San Francisco und Puget Sound Portland Oregon is hoton the Pacific coast but it is a very important place arid there is every justification for a public building there This debate has taken a wide range but I think it a wise debate I there is occasion for us to consider more carefully now far we will extend these public buildings That they have got to go niorc lareely to the less In the East those of us from the East areunfortunately compelled to admit Nothing to amazes an Eastern man as to travel West and see the immense developments there But the difficulty public building reports is that they go so largely on the idea of partition It is nothing else It is a most difficult thing for the Committee on Appropriations sight of the of partition and t6 confine itself to the abso lute merits of the case have never
