I personal notes from London. From our special correspondent London december 2, 1898. His excellency the governor returned to town on thursday last in order to be present at the Reading of or. Honner s paper at the colonial Institute. On Satur Day sir Fowell and lady Victoria Buxton went Down to Haslemere on a visit to mrs. Hawker and remained there till wednesday. They will now be in town up to december 17. The employees of the Leviathan brewery Truman. Hanbury. & Buxton in Brick Lane have presented sir Fowell with an address of Welcome. Though averse to racing his excellency intensely enjoys a " big at cat ton Hall or. Gurney Buxton s seat near Norwich last week. Sir Fowell and Bis five Brothers one Day shot 700 pheasants in six hours. Professor Ronnie and mrs. Rennie have concluded their visit to sir James and lady Garrick and moved to 27, Denning Road Hampstead. Lady Garrick is mrs. Bennies sister. There was a sound of much revel re and skirting of bagpipes at the Holborn restau rant on wednesday evening last. It proceeded from the King s Hall and was the accompaniment to the consumption of Haggis and other delectable dishes known to Scotchman by some 300 gentlemen who sat Down under the presidency of lord Glenesk to celebrate St. Andrew s Day and Toast that excellent and old established chant a association the scottish i corporation the object of which was Dis closed in the remark of the chairman that was their determination that not a single Scotchman in London should suffer if they could save or. Cockburn was one of the revellers and be was kept countenance by in Horace Tozer and or. Witt Noom. To him fell the duty of responding for the guests to which Toast also colonel Hill Martin c.8., eader of the 21st lancers in their Gallant charge at Omdurman was also Down to respond. Being called upon first the Agen general expressed. The opinion that civilians were Ali very Well in their Way but when they stood in the Way of heroes their duty was to get out of it As quickly As possible As it Ucley As the dervishes did at Omdurman. Tie thanked the corporation for the Honor done to South Australia in coupling his name with the Toast. He brought them Hearty greetings from Brethren Over the water. Scotchman in Australia were among the most patriotic of colonists but they did not forget Tihe land of their birth and in some cases they kept up the Trade i fans of the clan to which Bev Well remembered a meeting of a Cale donian society when a discussion arose on jacobite songs. A leading member was a Campbell who had married a Mcdonald and they got no sleep that night. The Feco Teh were undoubtedly Clannish but strength and efficiency sprang out of local traditions and limitations. He appealed to the Veteran Soldier sir John Mcevan who was Bis next door i neighbor to say whether our army did not i i 8 to the better because each Soldier loved Best the colors of Bis own regiment and the Union Jack in Bis opinion owed much of its invincible pm veer to the fact that the scots serving under it raised their eyes with Especial affection to the tru Blue color enshrining the saltire of St. An Drew. Or. Cockburn concluded by saying that in these Days of lath and plaster institutions it was a great Honor to be the guest of the venerable scottish Corpora Tion the foundation of which carried the mind Back to the period when a King of Feeo land added the English lose to his Posy of Blue Bells. Or. E. Curacy Young Bas been making enquiry among the shippers of Continental wines in London regarding the scud he Bas found in several parcels of wine shipped to the depot latterly. He finds that several of them Are quite familiar with it and with one Accord Trace it to ithe shipment of wines before they Are pro Perty matured. They state that it is most difficult to Clear the wine of it and on gentleman alleged that the Only Way to Settle the 6cud quickly and efficiently Wasto whack in Strong this course however is not open to or. Young who has the government certificate of purity to consider and he must therefore continue to combat the evil in the old patient Vray. Or. Young tells me that scud is to South australian wines for he has found it in the bottled stuff sold brother importers of australian wines. Talking of wine reminds me that or. T. K. Dow who left London by the Orizaba Bas taken acre at Deal of interest in the wine Trade whilst at Home he has come to the conclusion that victorian interests will be Best served if their government follows the Lead of or. Kingston s minis try in the establishment of a London depot. He however Recognises that the establish ment of another depot Wor i a solely in victorian interests might Lead to Competition of the Cut a at order and seems therefore inclined to favor the idea of a federation Between the South australian and victorian Vigneron and the establish ment of a joint depot under the manage ment of or. Young. The establishment charges of such a joint depot would of course compare very favourably with those of separate concerns. Probably the saving would approximate 25 to 30 per cent. The victorians might of course object to South australian As controller but it May be pointed out that in or. Young they would Bave a gentleman thoroughly versed in the ins and outs of the wine Industry at both making and Selling ends. Ido not however feel competent to enter into a disquisition upon the merits or demerits of or. Dow s notion. Criticism indeed cannot fairly be indulged in until Bis idea has been reduced to a proposition on paper. The Gulf of Siam with the first of ibis season s South australian Lamb on Board docked last monday and among the first to Board the Steamer was or. Young. Your commissioner tells me that the Lamb turned up in first rate order so far As condition went but whet he examined the shipment More closely in the cold store ashore he found the consignment rather uneven. A Good proportion of the car cases were Tiptop in All respects but Many of the lambs were rather Large and some carcases were not so plump and showy As could be desired. On the whole How Ever the shipment did the Colony credit and with Ordinary Luck should yield very i satisfactory returns to the shippers. The nominal Price of new zealand Lamb at the time of writing is from 3s. To 3s. 4d. Per Stone of 8 lb., and of australian 2s. Cd. To 3s. Trade terms Are ofttimes very mis leading. Or. Young has recently been making some enquiries into the Trade Here in what is known As Apricot a reference to the dictionary discovers pulp to be a soft moist slightly covering mass of Undis solved animal or vegetable matter and the Ordinary person would imagine Apricot pulp to be the fruit deprived of its Stone and mashed up. The Trade however have a very different idea. When they buy Apricot pulp they expect to find each half of the stoned fruit whole and they j would it look at a soft a mass of in dissolved vegetable at the pre i sent moment first class Apricot pulp is very scarce and the Price very High the Best Quality being Worth 30s. Per cwt. The Normal Price however is about 20s. J or. Tarold j. Bullock who arrived in England a few Days ago intent on study ing electrical engineering has been elec ted an honorary member of the australasian club. Before deciding what institution be will make Bis Alma mater. Or. Bullock intends to consult professor Hudson Beare of the London University whose advice is always at the service of colonials desiring to study this Branch of applied mechanics. Or. Cockburn Lias also Given him a letter to or. W. Clarke the Angas scholar who has recently made himself familiar with All the information bearing on the Educa Tion of electrical engineers. Lord Loch who seems in much better health than be was at the beginning of the year will preside at the colonial Institute meeting on tuesday. Lady Loch is in mourning for Ber relative lord Labom at whose funeral despite the heavy Snow storm both lords Carrington and Kintore were present. Lord Hopetoun is mentioned As a Likely successor to lord Labom As lord Chamberlain. Or. H. W. James Bas so completely re covered his health under the treatment of sir w. Owers that it will not be Neces sary for Bim to remain in England another year As be anticipated and he and mrs. Ames and their child leave London for Adelaide by the Victoria on january 29 next. The intervening weeks Are to be spent on the _outb.,-Oast, probably at Bournemouth. Or. Fames is naturally profoundly grateful to his wife and to those friends who urged him to come Home and consult a great nervous specialist Lieford accepting the dictum of the Adelaide faculty that his Case was Ropele i hear that my paragraph announcing the Success of sir. Gowers s treatment of or. James excited some talk amongst Ade Laide Medicos. One " doubting Thomas who bad not Boon consulted by the in valid even wrote to sir Wiliam to know if the facts were ass rated. Sir William re bed that they were though lie should have preferred the writer of the Para graph saying that be sir William considered it unnecessary to review the prescriptions of the Adelaide doctors in Stead of that he declined to look at them. The Book of Bismarck. Disappointing work. Copious extracts. From our special correspondent London december 2, 1898. The Bismarck autobiography will never for All its surpassing interest be a popu Lar Book. Like or. Busch s voluminous Boswell an diaries it is intolerably stodgy and overloaded with detail. Everyone who wishes to estimate the Iron Chancellor aright and More especially to Correct Liis Secretary s portrait of Bim. Must tackle the tvo ponderous tomes but the average Reader will nevertheless grumble Over the labor of it. Someday tis to be loped in the not too Distant future a literary eng Lishu Iau possessed alike of gumption and narrative Power will take this work and or. Busch s annals and make of them a life of Bismarck As thrilling As Barry o Brien s life of the mate rials Are of there. All that is wanted is a discreet disembowel ler who can write with a grip. The daily papers Bave of course Given copious extracts from Bis Marck s memoirs a selection from which i attach. Bismarck and Wix Siam. I. Tie passages to which All will turn with most interest Are those that record Bis re lations to the emperor Wiliam l the Day after Bismarck s death Busch with exemplary bad taste published an article in which he contrasted the services to Germany and the characters of King and minister and attempted to add to Bis Marck s Fame by pairing stress on the weak Nesses of the Man whom Bismarck loved to Call his with what a Relief do we turn from this vulgar contrast to Bis Marck s own words when with a master hand he describes the character of this Royal gentleman he was one of those figures princely alike in soul and body whose qualities belong More to the heart than the under standing and explain the life and death Devotion of their servants. Monarch and parliament bad Learnt to know and re Spect one another by Long internal struggles the King s Noble dig Nib and quiet Confidence had at last won tie re Spect even of his opponents and the King himself was enabled justly to judge the two sides of the situation owing to Bis own High feeling of personal Honor. He was governed by the feeling of Justice not Only towards his friends and servants but also in the struggle against his opponents. He held fast to Honor and loyalty not Only towards princes but also towards his ser vants even Down to his Valet. To one would have dared to flatter him openly to his face. In his feeling of Roval dignity a would have thought if any one had the right of praising me to my face be would j also have the right of blaming me to my face he would not admit and yet Bismarck does not attempt to ignore or underestimate the struggles an difficulties which he had had with the King they were indeed even More serious than we knew before. The King could not always understand and follow Bismarck s plans he was strongly influenced by the prejudices he had inherited from fits father. To take a single instance he much disliked the title of emperor there seemed to Bim who was by birth King of Prussia something degrading in being elected emperor. To do not wish to be a fancy dress mayor he said then with great reluctance he bad consented he would have it that be should be " emperor of Germany not " German when Bismarck entered the great Nail at Versailles where the proclamation was to be made he did not even know whether the King had Given Way. The grand Duke of Baden who had to raise a cheer for the new emperor avoided the difficulty by speaking not of the emperor of Germany or of the German emperor but of the emperor William. So angry was the King that when after the great ceremony was Over he descended from the dais into the body of the Hall though Bismarck was standing immediately before him he passed him by without word or recognition and Many Days passed before the old cordiality was resumed. How Little did the German nation As they pictured the great scene were the Chancellor had at last realised their National dreams think of the slight which was thus put upon him at the culmination of his career. Two attempts to bet Ibe. How does Bismarck look Back on events such As this there is no anger but As be himself says Only the same kind of melancholy with which one thinks of differences one May have had with one s father after be is dead. In the year Iso there bad been a serious difference of opinion regarding a diplomatic appoint ment. Bismarck who was ill angry and dispirited bad threatened to resign and eventually won his Point. Referring to Tii she says now after More than Twenty years when i again read the papers upon the matter i am struck with regret that being then placed Between my conviction of the in Terest of the state and my personal affection for the King i followed and was compelled to follow the former. To Day i feel myself shamed by the amiability with a bib he bore my official How Well was his Devotion and service to Bis master repaid when in answer to his request to be allowed to retire the King Wroe How can you even think that i could yield to your views. My greatest Happi Ness is to live and be always on the Best understanding with you. How can Yon Jet yourself be so upset that my Only instance of disagreement leads you to the most extreme when in 1877 Bismarck again wished to retire the King demonstrating said do you wish me to make a fool of myself in my old age it is disloyal of you to de Sert me could we have a Franker or More genuine expression of his dependence on the minister this was the time when he wrote the celebrated never on the margin of Bismarck s request. The appearance of the paper showed that after Reading it he had rolled it up and thrown it into the Corner of the room not the Only occasion on which he treated a Dis agreeable state paper in this Way. And yet so great was the influence of the King s loyalty and his sense of Royal dig nity that Bismarck tells us they never lost the feeling that the one was master and the other servant for the King had no feeling of jealousy of the minister he bad the True kingly feeling not Only was the Possession of a powerful and respectful servant not disagreeable to him but the thought was an elevating one to him and for this reason never did All the homage that was paid to me exaggerated though it were affect my feeling though i was the servant of my master and was it \ is with the Empress Ai Gusta. The tone Bismarck adopts towards other members of the Imperial family is equally interesting. A Large jew ration of the Book is filled with accounts of the difficulties be experienced by the hostility of the Princess afterwards the Empress Augusta to him and his policy. We get a Clever picture of the lady who wan in opposition to every ministry it was a necessity for her to be in opposition to the attitude of the government whatever it might be. Her influence changed and in such a Way that to the very last years of her life it always fell into the scale against the ministers. If the policy of the government was con sub. Vat ivc then Liberal persons and Liberal j tendencies were marked out for distinction and Advance in her Domestic Circle when the government of the emperor in its task of strength eng the new Empire entered the paths of liberalism then her favor inclined to the Side of the conserva Tive element and especially to the Catho at breakfast she used to discuss matters of policy with the King until she had persuaded or enticed him into some Strong expression of opinion Adverse to what Bis Marck desired then she would Complete Ber Triumph by saying but you will not stick to your opinion against Bis of course the result was that the King considered himself bound in Honor to do so. We Bave a delightful picture of the two old men in later life discussing How they should so guide and word their policy As to spare the King s Domestic peace. Fever Kopf the King in later years used to Call Bis wife. All this is perhaps a Little indiscreet but the Story is told without malevolence and one feels that Bismarck in his Solitude and retirement looks Back with Jinet Bing of regard even to his old enemies. The peace of old age has begun to Settle upon him. He is equally open concerning his relations to the emperor Frederick and Lii a wife. There is a Long account of the differences arising specially out of the Dantzig episode but Bismarck contradicts the statement so often made that these differences lasted All his life. We see indeed a distinct Effort to make his relations to the father and Mother of the present emperor appear better than they really were. As with regard to the Empress Augusta be narrates the events be analyses the nature of the differences traces them Back to their original cause and if we May use the expression excuses them. They differed from Bis policy and opposed it the Crown Princess at heart disliked and distrusted Bim be thought that her English birth influenced Ber in 1 her judgment both of German and euro Pean politics. Til Empke n_f.ra_. J her natural innate sympathy for her Home had from the beginning Havu it self in the attempt to turn like weight or Prusso German influence in the groupings of european Power into the scale o her native land and she never ceased to re Gard England As her country. This Dif Ference of opinion which rested on Rise Dif Ference of nationality caused Many a Liis Cus Ion Between her Royal hi_�inc and me on if lie Eastern question including the Battenberg speaking of the difference of opinion on constitutional Points he explains it As lol Lois for a Quarter of a Century a. Whole school of political writers had extolled Williat without any thorough comp in Sion of it they called the eng constr ortion As a Model to be imitated by Continental nations. What wonder then that the Crown Princess and Ber Mother Over looked that Peculiar 3haracter of the Prus Sian state to renders its administration by Means of shifting parliamentary groups a sheer the difference arose not Only from questions of internal policy. Bismarck feared that the close connection Wita England might be detrimental to German interests. And be deals with this very delicate subject in a mcmoran Induni to the emperor of Uli Yieh another a firtion was quoted in the daily chronicle on Friday. The passage is very remarkable and deserves to Ibe read the question of discretion is that who presents most difficulty especially in re Gard to our foreign relations and must continue to do so until his Royal High Ness and Ber Boyal highness die Crown Princess Bave fully realised to Fiat in ruling houses the nearest of Kin May yet be aliens and of necessity and As in duty bound represent other interests than Prus Sian. It is Bard that a Frontier Lino should also be the line of demarcation Between the interests of Mother and daughter or brother and sister but to forger the act is always perilous to the Sti Bismarck and Fritz. There is a curious Aco Iuit. of Bis Marck s first meeting with uie Queen at Paris in 1855 at the _11 at yers Eills Queen Victoria so be to me in German. She gave me the impression of beholding in me a note worthy bit unsympathetic personality but still her tone of voice was without Liat touch of ironical superiority that i thought 1 detect d in Prince Albert s. She continued to be amiable and courteous like one un..ung to treat an eccentric fellow in an unfriendly throughout the Book he Speaks More highly of the qualities and character of the emperor Frederick than we should expect him to speak. The ill feeling left by the ban Zig episode was partially appeased by the support which the Crown Prince gave to Bismarck during the negotiations of 1866. As the Story Bas ii Ergo been Only incorrectly narrated we. Give it in Bismarck s own words. Tiie scene was at Nikol Burg. Bismarck for political reason believed that it was absolutely is sett to make peace at once with aus Tria. The King however who was Ninet influenced by Lus military advisers refused to accept the terms of peace which aus Tria offered. Bismarck who was already nearly worn out returned to Bis quarters dispirited. It was on the Day before Liat he bad been outvoted in the coun cil where the was the Only civilian present and the King bad supported the military majority my nerves coif id not stand he Strain i got up in silence walked into my adjoin ing Bench Mcrand was to Bare overcome by a violent paroxysm of tears. Mean while i heard the Council dispersing in tha next a disk pc of peace. He bad gone once More to the King and made one More attempt to win him Over but again bad failed under the impression that my opinion was rejected i left the room with the idea of begging the King to allow me in my capacity of officer to join my regiment. On returning to my room i was in the mood and the thought occurred to me whether it would not be better to fall out of the open window which was four stories High and i did not look round when i Beard the door open although i suspected that the person entering was the Crown Prince whose room in the same corridor i bad just passed. I Felt his hand on my shoulder while he said you know that i was against this War. You considered it necessary and the responsibility for it lies on you. If you Are now persuaded that our end is attained and Peu a must now be concluded 1 am ready to support you and defend your opinion with my father he then repaired to the King and came Back after a Short half hour in the earn Calm Friendly mood with the words it has been a very difficult Busi Ness but my father has consented " the note in which the King gave his consent is too characteristic to be omit ted inasmuch asm minister president Bas left me in the lurch in the face of the enemy and Here i am not in a position to Supply his place i have discussed the question with my son and As be Bas associated himself with my minister presi Dent opinion i find myself reluctantly compelled after such Brilliant victories on the part of the army to bite this sour Apptt and accept so disgraceful a the disgraceful peace was the one or hic added four million subjects to the Crown of Prussia. But then the King wished to enter Vienna at the head of the army and Bismarck was opposed to the useless blood shed which this would cause and feared complications from the interference of France and Russia. A is Al . Throughout the memoirs much stress is Laid on the opposition Bismarck encountered from the military entourage of the King and from the higher officers of the army. He labors to prove that he was no enemy of the army and complains of the attempts on the part of the general staff to exclude Bim from discussions and de Prive Bim of information wifi Rich was not Only of military but also of political importance. During the siege of Paris mat ters came to Mucsi a state that he often had to extract intelligence on the views and occurrences at Headquarters from the correspondent of the times to was usually better informed than Boon s biography had already revealed the fact that Tihe relations Between Bismarck. And Moltke were often of a most us Friendly nature and we can easily be Lieve that the officers often resented Bis Marck s interference with their military arrangements. On the other band Jit is. Clear that iii masterful temperament could not endure that there should lie any department of the state excluded from Bis control. On the main question he was of course Rig Dit it is impossible to allow in a modern constitutional state that the army should be Independent of or co Ordi rated to Tihe civil authorities. A critical Case was the danger of War in France in 1875 and Bismarck again repeats with great a in is Antlitz spite of contrary evidence the assure ofe that uie danger of an unprovoked attack on France was a fiction of Gort Diakoff so far was i from entertaining any such idea at the. Time or afterwards that i would rather have resigned than Lent a hand in picking a quarrel which could have had no other motive than preventing France from recovering her Bra Tali and her he was convinced that his episode added to the jealousy of his influence Felt in the rest military circles that at the time of the to in Roques Tion during the crisis of 1575, invented by Gort Bakon and France and even Down to be most recent times the staff and irs leaders Bave allowed themselves to be led astray and to endanger peace lies in the very spirit of the institution which i would not forego. It Only becomes dangerous under a Monarch whose policy lacks sense of proportion and Power to resist one sided and constitutionally unjustifiable Bismarck s tragedy. It is the great tragedy of Bismarck s life that when he died he bad no friends. Soli tude the curse of greatness had fallen upon him. He had to take As his companions and confidants men infinitely unworthy of Liim. He bitterly notes that when be fell there were few of his col leagues even the Best who did not experience a feeling of Relief. He had hoped be tells us. To raise up successors to himself but he had not succeeded in doing so. Why was this from others we learn his in tolerance of opposition and Bis vindictive Ness he dwells on the cruel necessity of his policy which compelled him to sacrifice to it his earliest friendships it is a hard trial for the nerves of a Man of mature age when he is compelled to break off his former Intercourse with All or almost All Bis friends and acquaint he writes after narrating his rupture with the conservatives. In an interesting letter to Gotz he explains that a difference in politics May Lead to a Severance of their Friendship in Case of a conflict Between patriotism and Friendship the former must decide. But i can assure you that my patriotism is of so pure and Strong a nature that a Friendship which has to give Way to it May nevertheless be very cordial. This Severance of old Friendship helped to break Down his strength. He was a Strong Man but the responsibility a bib Lay upon him had shattered his nerves already weakened by hard work illness and careless living. If we want to find the True character of the Man we must go Buck to the time at Frankfort when lie was still in All the vigor of Bis youth. As be says " it is not work a bib is wearing but rather the doubts and no one Felt this More than be mid for he never deceived himself As to the extent of Bis knowledge for a minister we completely identifies his Honor with that of his count.-, the uncertainty of the result of Cadi political decision has a most harassing effect. It is just As impossible to foresee with Hajj certainty the political results at the time when a measure has to be carried t As it. Would be in our climate to predict the weather of the next few Days. Yet we have to make our decisions As though we could do and then he adds tie Intercourse with others whom we regard As similarly situated helps us to overcome these crises if this suddenly ceases and if the responsible minister suddenly finds himself boycotted by All Liis former friends treated As an enemy and then left alone with himself and Liis deliberations this must increase the ill effect of All his official anxieties upon his nerves and surrounded by every external Honor with wealth Fame and Success he was deprived of that which is the chief plea sure in Active life the cordial co operation and Friendly assistance of those in whom one has Complete Confidence and with whom one has grown old to whom one is joined by years of common activity. It May truly be said that in his old age the emperor was his Only Friend arid after Sibb be was alone. A bitter of ssh. One Man there is of whom we Bear Noth ing. The present emperor of Germany is completely ignored. We cannot be sure that this was Bismarck s original intention tie memoirs Are obviously income there Are Large gaps and they end abruptly. We do not even know whether "1 that be wrote has been published. However that May be the effect is far More bitter than anything which be could have said. The memoirs were chiefly written in 1691, before even tha appear Ance of reconciliation Between Bismarck and the emperor had been effected. Read ing carefully Between Tihe lines one feels that though other enemies Bave been for Given there is one who is not and All the Subtle character drawing is intensified in effect by the Contra. Betw2en his old master and the new master a contrast which is All the More effective that it is unspoken. He is careful to explain that his loyalty to his old master was far beyond what Law or principle required. It had the nature of a personal feeling it could not be transferred it must is earned. Relations like these in which i stood to die emperor William Are not exclusively of a political or Feudal nature they Are personal and they must be won toy the master As Well As by the servant. They Are easily transferred to one generation rather personally than logically but can not be made Why this careful insistence on one Gene ration except to make Clear that they could not be transferred to a third Mon Ards and that a bad not been won if that Mutual loyalty which be demands what satire is there in the words with which he dwells on the fact that on the Celebration of his Seventieth birthday the old pm Eror " did not order and arrange the celebrations but allowed them and shared an it was not commanded by him but be permitted and cheerfully assisted at Are we not meant to think of other honors and celebrations which were ordered and commanded and thrust by the authority of the Sovereign upon an unwilling subject. Sometimes be is More outspoken former rulers looked More to Tae capacity to an the obedience of their advisers if obedience alone is the criterion in demands will be made on the general ability of the Monarch which even Frederick the great himself would not satisfy although in la tune optics both in War and peace were less difficult Tutaan they Are to Day. Many chapters of the books Are occupied with discussions on the internal policy of Germany and constitutional questions. These Are perhaps the most Valu Able because it is in them that the foun Der of the modern Germany discusses the working of the Constitution which lie bad framed. In his political principles be displays himself As a monarchist in deed but a monarchist of a critical Kird. He repeatedly assures us. A never wished entirely to do away with parliamentary institutions. The Ideal government was Index an absolute Monarch but that would require a. Perfect Monarch. Neither Kings nor min Are perfect least of All was the prussian bureaucracy they Are led away by favo rites male and female they Are misguided by their own vanity the vanity of King sis a thought which never ceases to be in Bis mind they require criticism and criticism of the government is in his View the duty of parliamentary As semlies. What be complained of is that the German parliament do not Flo this work Well. They attempt to govern and fail to criticise. Bis abcs s he is singularly candid As to what May be called the Liberal period of Bis career be makes no attempt to disguise the fact that be was influenced simply by , that he . No Alliance with the Liberal party not because his principles coincided with theirs but in order that he might create the appearance of internal Unity in order to impress foreign nations. He even goes so far As to use the expression the Liberal measures be supported were a kind of blackmail paid to the Liberal party in order to procure their temporary support. As to the socialist question he remains As before determined that a pure Pouey of repression is essential. We have a letter in which be explains that his real object went far further even than the orig Mil Law which the Reich Stag rejected he wished the principle to be Laid Down that every Man who had been convicted of holding socialistic opinions should be Ren dered incapable of sitting in parliament. What an ignorance of the True objects of representative institutions does this Jis Plav even with him we were to agree that the duty of parliament in Ger Many was not to govern but to criticise on Flint Pri Ciple can be accept the vex Clurion of men whose Only crime is that their opinions differ from those who go vern them in a letter written at the time we find the following passage a my opinion the Law requires an addendum dealing with officials no the effect that participation in socialist poetics will bring upon them dismissal wet out a pen Sion. Ilse majority of he ill paid subordinate officials in Berlin As Well As the rail Way guards Points men and other similar classes Are socialists a fact of dangerous tendency As would be obvious in the Case of insurrections and transport of anyone who has been much in Germany knows How True this is and yet he has no remedy except that policy of repression which has once brought about a revolution in Germany and May Well do so again and an increase of that domination of Alie government in All departments of life to which More than anything else the be Cobar characteristics of German socialism Are due. His policy in this matter is the More extraordinary because he really hated the prussian bureaucracy and the prussian i ice As much As anyone and Many of his own criticisms of them Are almost equal in bitterness to anything that proceeds from the socialists. And yet in an hitherto unpublished letter to the King of Bavaria referring to the socialists he Speaks of the menacing band of robbers with whom we Iare our larger towns As Ove a a it without pm sop is. The truth seems to be that in this As in Many other Points Bismarck never was at Home in Domestic legislation be i Proa Ched internal questions with something of Flie attitude of mind with which be dealt with foreign affairs. There he bad come to the conclusion that principles bad no part in government the relations Between european states must be decided by their relative strength and by their interests it mattered not that one was Republican another monarchical one Catholic and an other protestant they must be looked up on simply As pieces in be european is boar and the if importance weighed by the Power of the government the state of the finances and the numbers of the army. All european statecraft was a shifting scene of temporary treaties and Ever Alliance must be made with tone Cony Mon consciousness that it would be Given up so soon As the interests of either party required it. This habit of thought be transferred to internal matters be would support or ask support from conservatives or liberals catholics or even progressives As the needs of the moment required and then throw them aside careless of the fact that the Alliance of the government with a party could never be a Barren Union and As in the Kultur kampf for the Sake of purely political ends would go so far. To create a permanent divorce Between religious feeling and state allegiance. The Book shows no Ign of failing Intel Lect except perhaps that the style is no longer quite so Lively and direct As in Bis Marck s earlier writings and speeches especially in the second volume cd in the passages where toe is discussing questions of policy we come across ? Many Ponderosa and voluminous sentences on Page 336 we have a paragraph of 1c lines consisting of one portentous sentence sometimes we seem to see evidence off rhe fact if Nat it Bas been dictated with a certain uncertainty of expression As the result. On the other hand in the narrative portions and the numerous and characteristic anecdote of which the volumes contain there is much of the old verve and originality of thought and expression. Or. Butler has been very successful in the difficult task of editing the Woric of various bands. There Are two admirable portraits of by a a resting to the shareholders and amusing to outsiders. As i advised you last week. The shareholders committee lodged with. The company a requisition signed by 900 shareholder. But instead of convening -. The extraordinary general meeting deman ded by the eau Vanist the directors have adopted the curious course of Cri Jig out a circular to the signatories to requisition asking them to withdraw their names which the Board with charming simplicity suggest were attached " in the belief that the circular which accompanied the form of requisition emanated from the company s considering thai the circular referred to was dated from Broad Street the recognised offices of the provisional committee that it con a used a grave indictment of the directors and contained a Strong hint that it would be expedient to remove the five directors responsible for the milling contract from of fice the suggestion that shareholders May. Have mistaken it for an official concoction is altogether too funny. The committee however term it an inst to share holders in their circular asking shareholders to withdraw their names from the requisition the directors assert once again that Tho Konneman Hartley process is Likely to " prove a Success. To this the committee re ply that a greater misfortune could. Not befall the shareholders since in the event of failure the company would Only loss the few thousands expended on the con struck Dou of the works whereas in the event of Success they stand to lose not Only 3 dwt. Of refined Gold per ton it also 40 per cent of the Gold recovered. To the directors attempt to discredit the. Nominees of the shareholders committee by the invidious Contention that their stake in the company is Small As com pared with that of the directors the com Mittee answer that the aforesaid nominee hold Between them 1400 Sharps a bib. Have cil has gone on strike. I Don t object much to some strikes. If a worker chooses to go on strike he Seldom hurts anybody but himself and if be even tries to the police soon run Bim in. If he Nan with Bis bread and butter it s Bis own look out. The Pinch of poverty Coon brings him to his senses. But the tory Mode of introducing the strike into Politi Cal warfare in its Freedom from Obeso wholesome restraints is a trifle disgusting. First we had the medical strike designed. To Compass the destruction of the Ade. Laide Hospital Board and the Kingston. Government. The honorary sinkers struck through the sick Ikka and with this advantage that they them. Selves so different from Ordinary strikers lost no Penny of wages As they had Wane to lose. They have been routed and serve them right. But How much worse is the strike of no. 1 room of the legislative Council they Are not an honorary state but paid Public servants. Eadi Man receives Bis �200 a year a tidy sum in these Dull times. They arc paid to do the work of the country which includes the passing of Bills for paying other Public servants. Yet these Gentry go on take throw Down their tools shut up the legislative and All the tone greedily draw Fruita their masters pockets. �4 per week and the use of a free railway pass that is. Full wages for strike pay. This too whilst the Job they defiantly neglect and which requires chief attraction is the usual provision for maintenance of the Public credit by. The payment of thousands of faithful employees of a Colony and the discharge of South ans Thalia s other numerous obligations. Z Don t think that in our history anything so wicked was Ever previously attempted. May the confusion of the Hospital strike confound this test and every other attempt to introduce the strike into poli. Tics legislative Council franchise. To the editor. I am &c., elector. Sir when speaking in the Assembly of the 22nd ult. Or. Foster is reported to. Have made the statement that if the pre sent act was strictly carried out three fourths of the Northern Farmers would to. Disfranchised which is very misleading. True if rested on the in improved value of Crown not be entitled to vote for the Council because very few lessees of the Crown pay. �25 per annul to the government As rent. But As the rent actually paid to the Crown is on the unimproved value of the holding it Bas very Little to do with the qualification As such qualification in All cases rests on the improved value May few Farmers Are disqualified.
