Blaine the Centre intrigues which worry president facts notes rumours and current gossip. Pokr r. I., aug. Little shingled cottage the level space in front the Casino a typical creation is occupied by the Senate sub committee the working the Tariff system. During the Yast three weeks a vast amount work has been done there by senators Aldrich. Harris Allison and Carlisle. In discussing the political situation today senator Carlisle said Quot the Farmers Alliance is a gradual atrophy a Maras us which indicates that the organization will not in All probability be a serious Factor in the election next year. Quot the Alliance vote in Kentucky last week was less than 20,000. I can see no danger to democratic Success from the Alliance. Quot the Only states which it can by any probable Chance carry Are Kansas and perhaps Nebraska and Colorado. The democracy will lose nothing. Quot the movement in the South is substantially a unit in course already. This is a spectre which confronts the White Man in the Southern states a Shadow negro supremacy. Quot rather than have negro domination the Whites will Bury political differences and unite at the polls in order to prevent that which they regard As a greater evil. Quot i do not quite understand the Alliance movement in Ohio. Quot the democratic candidate May not be helped by the third ticket but Between now and election Day difficulties May be smoothed Over. A i regard the presence a third party ticket in the held in �?T92 As contingent. Suppose the republicans nominate Harrison pronounce Day anti Silver in his belief and Tho democrats place Cleveland at the head their ticket. Or. Cleveland has placed himself record against free coinage. Quot the third party people would then be Between the horns a dilemma. Probably they would have a ticket their own. The losses would generally be greater to Tho republicans than to the democrats. Quot in some states the democrats would lose but there is no democratic state that would be turned Over to its enemies. Quot the other hand a third ticket would endanger one More Republican states and perhaps throw the presidential election into the House representatives which will be democratic. Quot if either one the great parties were to nominate a Man who is disposed to Coquet with the free Silver people he would attract the Alliance vote As much it As speaking the probable candidates for the presidency in �?T92 . Carlisle said a the republicans will nominate president Harrison if . Blaine will not consent to stand. A the influence the ladies his family May deter . Blaine but there is a tremendous pressure upon him from his old party friends to run. Quot he would sweep Tho convention. I think. No Republican is As Strong As Blaine. I do not think that he will consent to run. Quot . Cleveland in my judgment is still the strongest democratic candidate. He May have offended the extreme pro Silver men by his remarks against free coinage but he enjoys a wonderful reputation among the people. A the Plain every Day folks in the West and South swear by him. I know no Democrat who enjoys the Confidence the people As does . Cleveland eur governor. One member new York s democracy who Don t favor the idea. New York aug. 15.�?the suggestion made to nominate sex president Cleveland for governor excites a wider interest and causes More talk As Tho politicians get time to think about it. Or. Clinton Beckworth the Delegate to the democratic state convention from the Twenty third District said a i am not in favor the proposition but i am certain that my colleagues the state committee do not All agree with me. A i know that j. W. Mcmahon the Delegate irom the 34th District which is away in the West end the state has been talking about Tho suggestion these two Days and he is in favor the idea. Quot i done to know How Many others Are. There is no secrecy about my position the question and nothing will change it. A any Good Democrat could carry the state this year with a whoop. I think even Cleveland could be elected but he would have an awfully hard tight. Quot his chances for the presidential nomination would not be improved one Iota by his nomination for governor even if he should be elected unless he carried the state by a great majority and that a what he can to do. Next year he could not carry it at Flower for governor. Democrats meet sept. 15 at americans spa. New York aug. 12.�?Saratoga Springs is the place and sept. 15 the Date fixed upon for holding the democratic Stato convention by the state committee this morning. The meeting was held in the Parlours the Hoffman House. It did not occupy More than to minutes. Saratoga for the convention and Flower for governor seems to be the favourites. Iii the language the song Rochester was Quot not in it Quot when the vote was taken. The state committee decided to meet again the evening sept 14 at Saratoga. Thirty one out the 34 members the committee were present represented by proxies. The sentiment among the delegates was for Flower for governor Aud Sheehan for lieutenant governor. The renomination Secretary state Rice and state treasurer Danforth is conceded. For comptroller John b. Riley Pittsburg and Frank Campbell Steuben Are Tho favourites. Simon w.

Springfield mass., aug. 15.�?acting gov. Morgan g. Bulkeley Connecticut and his wife Are a Carriage drive through the country. The governor stopped at the Haynes House last night where he is detained today by the humid weather. The Globe representative called upon him and asked him if he had anything to Tell the people about the existing state affairs in Connecticut. Quot Well a he replied Quot i have been driving through the country for two weeks and am not very Well posted about affairs in the Nutmeg How about the statement made by . Sanger the democratic candidate for state treasurer who alleges that he will be seated soon ? Quot i guess be will have to wait awhile. That a my opinion till the legislature meets next november anyway a he added. Quot shall you hold your office until the legislature decides who is elected Quot Quot Well i Shane to run away Aud leave the office vacant. That would not do. All i am doing is sitting Down and waiting for tie proper authorities to Tell me who is elected. A that is what i swore to do when i took the oath office. Quot As soon As the proper authorities decide who my successor is i shall be Happy to turn the office Over to him very Happy indeed. A i recognize the legislature As the proper authority in the Case notwithstanding what Lias been said to the contrary. A there has Beon butene Way in 250 years telling who was governor Connecticut. And that has been by the general Assembly Ever since we have elected governors and we have elected governors longer than any Othet state in the Union. What have you to say gov. Hill and his refusal to give requisition papers a i done to care a pin for gov. Hill a replied the acting governor. A a if he wants Connecticut a criminals he is Welcome to them but we Are willing to take them off his hands. We will Send him Back All he asks for As we always have done. Quot Down in Connecticut we recognize the courtesies that exist Between the executives the different states. They done to in new the governor said that he will soon finish his vacation and return to Hartford. Next week be will visit the state militia Encampment at the presidents plan to make himself popular in the new England states. Washington aug. 16.�?friends the administration say that president Harrison a visit to Bennington at the unveiling the Stark Monument Means More than a desire to lend eclat to the occasion. It is to be a repetition a smaller scaled his recent Southern and Western trip. He is going to try and see if to can to make some popularity for himself in new England and from personal observation learn just exactly How Strong the Blaine sentiment is in the East. It is Learned from a very reliable Quarter that the president is greatly worried Over the attitude the Blaine Boomers. The latter Are using every Means in their Power to secure the nomination for . Blaine and the president so far is in the dark regarding the exact intentions his Secretary state . Blaine has not yet authoritatively announced that to will not be a candidate neither has he announced that he will be. He is. Apparently in Tho position a whist player with a Strong hand Trumps and a Short suit with the Lead in his opponents hand. It is for his antagonist to make the play and Tor him to decide whether he will Force the fighting at once play a waiting game Blaine is Drifting with the. Tide. And the tide seems to run All in the direction the Man from Maine. It is undoubtedly True that at the present time . Blaine is not lifting a linger to secure the nomination his henchmen Are doing All the work. This leaves . Blaine in the most and admirable position because if the nomination comes to him without any Effort his part and seemingly As the spontaneous outburst the country . Blaine cannot refuse to accept it. Can he then be charged with disloyalty to Harrison while a member the Cabinet. The president knows the game that . Blaine is playing and it is believed from certain words dropped by a Man very close to the president and to whom i put a few pointed questions that if it comes to a contest Between Blaine and the president to secure Tho nomination the former can easily walk off with the prize. In the meantime there is Only one thing left for the president to do and that is to try and increase his popularity in every possible direction. It is for that reason that he is going to he a guest Secretary Proctor for a few Days and afford the yeomanry the Green Mountain state a Chance to see a real live president something which a very few Thorn have Ever had an Opportunity gazing before. In everything that Harrison does one Eye is kept open so As to be Able to watch . Blaine. A despite the efforts made by the administration organs to Foster the belief that Blaine Ana Harrison Are in perfect Accord. We in Washington know Only too Well that there has never been any genuine affection and hardly Friendship Between the two men. Harrison put Blaine in the Cabinet simply because As he once told a Friend it was easier to watch him there than it was the outside and from almost the very first hour that . Blaine was invited by the president to become Secretary state . Blaine knew the feelings which Harrison entertained for him. For Over two years now . Harrison has Boen tormented by tile belief that . Blaine wanted to secure the nomination next year and the president has regarded everything that the Secretary state has done As being simply a Means to that end. It is said Here that if the president should find out that Blaine is determined to be a candidate he will withdraw rather than risk the humiliation being Defeated but he Hopes through so called Mutual friends to try and induce . Blaino to believe that he Blaine does not want to go through the excitement another presidential Campaign. Or. Blaino however and especially . Blaines friends look askance the greeks bearing gifts in the shape suggestions about what . Blaine ought ought not to do when coining from adherents the president. It was stated in this correspondence some weeks ago. And i see no reason to change the opinion then expressed that . Blaines candidacy depends greatly upon the result in Ohio this tall. Should maj. Mckinley be elected governor by a substantial majority it is More than probable that . Blaino would not consent to be a candidate because he would regard the Ohio election As significant the strength Protection in Trie Middle Western states and then Mckinley a Success w Ould make him a formidable and most dangerous competitor in the convention. On the other hand. If Mckinley is Defeated . Blaino w Ould then feel that his judgment regarding the Mckinley Bill when that measure was under consideration in the last Congress was triumphantly vindicated by the people and to would consider Tho time Ripe for making a Campaign reciprocity. Still one other Factor enters into . Blaines calculations. It is believed that if . Cleveland is Tho democratic nominee . Blaine would hesitate very seriously before to consented to become a candidate. Or. Blaine was knocked out before by . Cleveland and he dreads standing up before him again he would not mind meeting any other candidate but in . Blaines composition there is a vein superstition and he is just superstitious enough to believe that it would be a highly dangerous Experiment for him to make a second attempt to defeat Grover Cleveland. A. Maurice Low after the votes. Alliance is hed hot after the Scalp locks Sherman and Gorman. Washington. Aug. 15.�?editor Dunning the National economist the Organ the Farmers Alliance has just returned from the convention that body in Baltimore. Speaking the Baltimore convention . Dunning said that while it had not been definitely determined whether they would put out a state ticket in Maryland he w As inclined to believe they would and he was sanguine enough to believe that with a Little work the Alliance might be Able to defeat senator Gorman. Speaking the fight in Ohio . Dunning said Quot we will defeat John Sherman As sure As Fate. We have already 15 speakers at work in Ohio and during october there will to Between 300 and 400. Quot you cannot find an Alliance speaker who can be kept out Ohio in october unless he is detained by sickness death. Quot the plan Campaign will be the same As we pursued so successfully in Kansas. Quot there will be speeches at Camp meetings and at gatherings Farmers. We will get right Down to the people. Quot already we Are sending great quantities literature into the state and there is More to . Dunning was asked whether the Peoples will meet Here the 22d next february will nominate a third party presidential ticket. Quot it will not meet for that to said Quot but i think that will be the logical conclusion the gathering. Quot the advisability making a nomination will be discussed and if it is determined upon As i think it will to. A Call will be issued for a convention to which delegates will be chosen in regular form. Quot personally i should like to see col. Polk nominated and i assure you that he would not be tile second Man in the race a col. Polk believes and there Are Many others who agree with him that the very fact that he is from North Carolina bars him from the nomination. Quot i look at it differently. If the War is Over and sectional ism dead As both the old parties profess to teach but never practice it makes no difference whether a Man comes from the North the South. Quot the number votes which would be cast for col. Polk in the North would Surprise you. Quot i want to say also that the Alliance is not a political organization and that if either the parties would unite upon an 1 endorsement our demands it would have our support. Quot this does not however seem possible 1 and As no Reform can be secured in this country without votes we Are after the ballots in order that the Relief which we so sorely need May to Mills Back in Washington. He has nothing to say about the speaker ship contest. Washington aug. 15.�?representative Mills Texas who has been making democratic speeches in Iowa has come Back to Washington for a Short stay. While he will not talk about the speaker ship contest the presidential Outlook he is Frank enough in discussing political affairs in the West. Or. Mills is confident democratic Success in Iowa. A believes that not Only will gov. Bolos to re elected but he is equally certain that the democrats will carry the Stato ticket and the legislature. The election the latter would not. However affect the complexion the United states Senate As Tho i legislature to be chosen next fall does not name a senator. The democrats will to aided simply in having some Holdover state senators As a nucleus for Tho next legislature. Or. Mills found a great Deal enthusiasm among the Iowa democrats and his speeches were listened to by Large crowds. Having returned to no Ashington. Or. Mills will resume work upon his Tariff Book. He will continue this labor with slight intermissions until october when he will go out to Ohio and make a number speeches in advocacy gov. Campbell. He thinks that the latter will be elected. Stephen w. Dorsey a forecast sees Golden Opportunity for republicans to sweep the country with Blaine at head ticket in �?T92. Kansas City mo., aug. Stephen w. Dorsey who has been living in new Mexico since his retirement from Public life is in the City business. In answer to the question Quot what is your opinion the political situation As regards the Republican party especially As to its Success at the next election a . Dorsey said Quot the Success the Republican party at the next election will depend almost entirely upon the Republican convention itself. If the convention pursues the Ordinary course and puts up a candidate because he is Little and Dodges issues because they might Hurt somebody it will be Defeated and ought to be. Quot the Republican party Hasni to with a single exception nominated a Man recognized ability a fearless and aggressive Man the Choice Tho people the Choice the rank and Hie the party. Iii 18 years. With a straight out hard talk the Tariff Clear and undoubted declarations upon Silver and a candidate that not Only this country but the world recognizes like . Blaine the re publicans will have an old time majority Iii every state that Ever went Quot supposing that the demagogue control the next Republican convention Quot a in that Case a said . Dorsey enthusiastically a James g. Blaine will be nominated for president if his physical condition will permit and no one will be named As against him. In the event his health not permitting and maj. Mckinley being elected governor Ohio the major is More Likely to be nominated than any other Man in the county and a magnificent president he would bold Matt Quay. His future plans a in his own state to retrieve his Honor. Washington. Aug. 13.�?if any one supposes that Matthew Stanley Quay has retired even temporarily from politics he is badly mistaken. A Friend the sex National chairman outlined yesterday what the latter a plans for the future Are Likely to be. In boldness and daring they eclipse even the noted attempts the past. There was a time when the senator contemplated retiring from political life. His position in the Senate was not congenial to him. The thought Retreat however was repulsive to him and his resolve after due consideration was made. He would not give his enemies the most bitter whom Are within his own party the satisfaction pointing the Finger ridicule at him and crying. Quot . What a wreck Quot he determined to fight it out and is now carrying out the plans that were matured while fishing for Tarpon along Tho Florida coast. He most positively will not resign from the Senate. Al his seat there is certain until 1893, and a second term is now the goal his ambition. He has transferred his base political operations from nation to state lines and it is in Pennsylvania whence issued the malodorous charges against his integrity that he will make his Battle and attempt to retrieve his position. For obvious reasons Quay will take the reins himself if not As the state chairman then so close to that official that the latter will be the puppet to repeat the masters orders. The rank and file the party the Ward workers the township hustlers and others have set up a cry for Quay. A the methods which have always proved successful under quays manipulation Are again being put in use. The Quot fat frying has begun and . John Wanamaker As usual has Boen detailed to watch the pot and see that every drop grease possible is extracted. A Little preliminary Quot frying Quot is now going in Philadelphia where the first fruits the season arc to be gathered and shipped to William Mckinley Ohio. This is quays plan. To restore Pennsylvania to her place in the ranks Republic each states to carry the state delegation to the next National convention As a Quay unit to be voted As he shall elect and then to elect a legislature that will Send him Back to the United states Senate.

Chicago aug. 15.-this was one the wildest Days record the Chicago Board Trade. December wheat was Quot out it touched 81.08 and paralysed the bears. Those gentlemen rather expected and were partially prepared for the great Boom yesterday but when the bulls took hold this morning Aud sent prices whirling skyward the Quot Short Quot element was dumbfounded. V such jumps in figures As were witnessed today had not Boon seen since Quot old hutches Quot famous september Corner in 1888. It was Only for a Short time that the Price maintained itself at #1.08. The bears soon rallied Aud with a mighty onslaught bore Down the Price again and when the tug clock in Tho Tower struck 12 clock and trading had ceased for the Day the figures stood at Al ova. Before the Board opened in Tho morning there was a great Deal suppressed excitement. On Tho curb at 9 clock $1.024 was freely offered the Cable bringing the information that the Price had advanced two cents at Liverpool owing to speculation. The reports Short european crops and prospective famine in Russia and the general idea that wheat was bound to go higher today affected the curb dealers while the open Hoard the Price was 81.02vs before business began the big Board. As 9.30 clock Tho hour when trading begins Drew near Tho opinion was freely expressed by the shrewdest brokers that would Over. 81.05 be reached before the Day was the wheat pit was crowded before business began and it was an excited crowd. For a few minutes before the Oolite mounded there was a Rush inf when Tho sonorous notice to begin rang out a mighty yell went up. It was impossible to Tell for some time what the Price wheat really was. For there were half a dozen prices yelled out in different portions the pit they ranged from 81 a1 to 11.03 by. After a time the excitement settled Down and the traders Begarif to realize where they stood and that the real Price was about ll.02, which was the figure at the end the first half hour. Then came the wildest Market seen in years. Wheat went up and Down in big leaps going to $1.03mn and from that Point to $1.05, almost in Ono hound. At $1.03mn Pardridge who had Given out that he would speculate no More came into the pit As a big buyer but he could find no Sellers. Nobody wanted to sell then and the Price went at once to si.05, and within 30 minutes to , 81.07 and. Finally. 81.08. The Market had simply gone wild. Every time Thoro was an Advance the boys got. Frightened and exerted every Effort to Railroad at the top Price for fear there would he a drop As sudden As the Rise. Then five minutes later when Tho Market had again advanced the who had sold were clamouring to buy Back their wheat and were willing to pay from one to three cents More than they had previously a old for. Over and Over again this was repeated and Sellers lost enormous amounts which they partly recovered by buying again. One remarkable thing noted by All was that there wore no failures. Everybody got through the Clearinghouse All right the previous Days business but it is not unlikely that it will be found that As a result today s work Nome healers will a go broken monday. Still there was not even a Rumor the Board at the close the trading a prospective failure the part any individual firm. A the scenes excitement a Ere witnessed by a big crowd in the visitors gallery and from that Point the wheat pit looked worse than a Lunatic Asylum broken Loose. There was scarcely any Lull in the excitement from the time when it became apparent that the tendency was upward and that nobody could Stop it until 12 clock struck. During the last 20 minutes the Market stood at about $1.06, fluctuating a Little while the bears were exerting themselves to beat it Down. The men in the nits crowded together in a big discarded Coats and hats and clawed each other like wild animals while a constant and deafening Roar Rose to the lofty ceiling. After the Market closed thee were a Good Many traders who were frightened at the idea holding wheat at $1.06bs. What will happen monday they asked themselves. Unless the excitement cools Down Over sunday it is Likely that the scenes today will be repeated a still larger scale. In the midst All the turmoil today Ono idea was prominent in the minds Many brokers that was Jim Keene new York is responsible. It was said he is taking revenge for that Little experience his in 1878, when his flyer the Chicago Board Trade Cost him some $2,000,000. Keener a alleged connection with the flurry however cannot to proven by any fart it would have been an exciting Day for speculators in Grain if even wheat had remained stationary. Corn was Only secondary interest because As a Rule the crowd trading in it is smaller than that in wheat. The fluctuations were frequent and sufficient severity to to called sensational and As in wheat the trend prices was strongly upward. September which at one time sold As Low As 59b/i cents Only reached its Pinnacle when it touched 65vi� cents and it stood at 62va cents at the close the session 2/i cents above the Point it stopped at yesterday. The Advance was duo for the most part to the excitement in the wheat Market and that was taken advantage by those who Are working the Bull Side the Deal. B. P. Hutchinson from his Point observation in new York was helping the advancing impetus Here boing it is said personally interested in its going that Way to the extent Over i too too bushels. It is stated Here positively that the famous Quot hold your wheat circular was sent oat and paid for by Minnesota Millers who seek to unload 6.000,000 bushels old wheat at an Advance 20 cents before the inevitable drop comes.

They desire a full blooded chinaman for their ruler and have chosen Lue Yoe who has been a sort a hero with the Middle classes for Over half a Century. Lue Yoe is now 85 years old. But is Hale and Hearty and a Man powerful intellect and Strong individuality. Quot i have heard rumours this kind before Quot said Shen Woon the chinese Consul in this City last evening Quot but i attack very Little importance to them in the main i consider the rumours a general rebellion As highly coloured and built a very slender foundation. My last advices from the court i zing Quoit received about two weeks ago Are entirely at variance with the in formation imparted by Gin Quot have you seen the published statement that you Are suspected being in league with the insurgent Clement Quot the Consul was asked. Shen Woon shrugged his shoulders and laughed. Quot yes . Loo the attache Tho consulate.

So hereafter done to mention the word san Joaquin to to in a weary it Quot Tho next morning Searles got up very Early and sought Tho car the coloured Porter. Said he a get these people out As Early As you can. And then remove those abominable curtains. Done to let them offend Tho Eye any longer than necessary for there is nothing Ais thetic about them Quot the general opinion those who went this trip was that Searles Boro a Strong resemblance to Oscar Wilde. Big belts made paper. They Are better than leather except where they must run in water. New York Sun one the largest establishments in this country has for some time been turning out paper bolts that have the reputation being Superior Iii Many respects to those leather that these belts Are Mado from pure Linen Stock Aud Are any desired thickness Width length having also a driving Power equal to any other from an equal surface and while it is not claimed for them that they Are adapted to All kinds work they Are found to serve Well As straight driving belts not less than five inches in Width. Where they have been tested Side by Side with leather belts for strength and durability they Are alleged to have proved equally satisfactory adhering very closely to the Pulley generating no electricity while run Ning being also flexible and unaffected by temperature within Ordinary limits though there is one place in which they cannot do used and that is where they have to run in water fir where they would to constantly subjected to moisture. A suspicious character. A Quot done to meet men this stamp often in Missouri. Til nov Herald Over in Missouri there is a certain Plank Road Ami a certain toll Gate. Besides Tho toll Gate there is a farm House the Cool and comfortable porch whereof the worthy Farmer usually sits waiting to collect toll Liilo his boy Bill ploughs the Corn in the Field away boy oud. On a certain recent occasion however this worthy Farmer happened to to Over in the Field helping his boy Bill when a Nious looking stranger drove up to the toll Gate. There was no one in the farm House no one nearer than the Farmer and lits boy Bill half a mile away in Tho Field. Tho toll Gato was unlocked open in fact but this pious stranger was temptation proof. He hitched his horse to a tree and proudly floundered out to where the Farmer and his boy Bill were at work. Quot my Good said he Quot Are you the keeper this toll Gate top a said the worthy Farmer. Quot what is the toll my Good Man a Quot five a Well i wish to drive through my Good Man and Here is your five the worthy Fanner scratched his head anxiously for a Brief period. Quot did you come out hero just to give me that Nickel Quot lie asked presently. Quot for no other purpose my Good sir Quot and the pious appear Reg Man ambled soulfully away. Quot by la said the Farmer to his boy. In an agitated undertone Quot get the old Gray Mare and watch that stranger till to gets to town. Little they respected death. The other Day mrs. Mackintosh entered her parlor where her four daughters were waiting for the Carriage to take them to bigwigs Ball and said Quot my dear girls i have just received a letter in a Black bordered envelope from London whore you know your Uncle William has been seriously ill for a Quot great heavens Quot exclaimed the Young ladies beginning to weep. Quot course there is every reason to suppose done to make your noses red for gracious Sake to suppose that it contains sad news but Quot Quot but a Quot shrieked the tearful quartet a look at All our new gowns and and Quot exactly so Quot exclaimed the modern Cornelia a i was going to say that while the worst is to be feared we really know nothing definite As yet. Considering All circumstances i have concluded not to open the letter till re powdering their noses with grateful smiles the girls rustled beam ugly out. Homage made a Little Crown Prince weary. It is said that the Little German Crown Prince while out driving with his governess one Day was cheered As usual by some germans who also lifted their hats to him. At last the boy became bored with having continually to acknowledge the salutes the populace. Flinging himself Back in his Carriage he said to his governess Quot i am tired now and will not lift my Bonnet any More to them. No matter How much they Quot you Are a naughty boy Quot replied the governess a Maud unless you acknowledge the salutes the people i shall not continue to drive with you. A the Little Crown Prince sat up immediately. said he a Stop the Carriage this lady will get oat a he added with a lordly wave Hie land toward his to Gladston Esir Charles Dilke has most personal will win in next election but accomplish believes in a sort Bellamy municipality. London aug. up again in British politics is a Man who seems Likely to become a formidable competitor for leadership Tho new democracy with lord Rosebery with . Chamberlain should he change his policy in that direction with any one else who yet appears to be a possible candidate for that position. That Man is sir Charles w. Dilke Bart. Coming from a line scholars he served in Long and close apprenticeship among books and is especially Well read in matters legislation. To this he has added much by travel so that perhaps not another Man hts activity and ability bae so wide and accurate a knowledge the ideas and conditions prevailing in All tire states scattered Over the world springing from the English Stock arid speaking the English Tongue. A itis not alone great Britain out greater Britain As Well including the United states that engages his thoughts. Holding one after another High and responsible stations in the Imperial government and giving Many instances unquestionable ability his future half a dozen years ago seemed full wonderful Promise. Suddenly came the terrible scandal which blasted that Promise and forced him from Tolice and out the Active political Field. I am informed by a Liberal parliamentary candidate who would resign his Candida turf rather than have Dilke speak from his platform that Dilke despite the odium cast upon him and the acrimonious opposition to him has now a stronger personal following than any other Man in the kingdom save Gladstone. Iii order to get from him something his views i visited sir Charles Dilke at his newly built Villa a few Miles up the thames not far from Shepperton and at a place locally known As Beckett Eddy. The House setting Low and from a distance showing through a partial opening in the Trees an expansive tiled roof is an Island 15 acres in extent at a Point where the River shallows arid Only Small boats can pass. The House is reached by boat which draws up to a Stone Landing. On the Large veranda in front the House i found sir Charles Dilke. Lady Dilke Aud Hor private Secretary miss Abram. The gentleman was attired in spotless White Tennis boating costume a close fitting. Dark cloth Cap and As the morning was Chilly lie wore also a dark cloth jacket lined with White fleece. He is a Broad shouldered Square built Man with Clear Gray eyes and a full grizzled Beard. His manner is serious and dignified and direct almost to abruptness. To altogether lacks Tho suave Grace . Cli Amber lain. I asked Hir Charles Dilke when to thought the general election would come. Quot it. Will come next year Quot to answered substantially. Quot some think the time set will he july others think earlier but i am opinion that it will not tie until toward november unless something unforeseen should Oci Tir that would make an earlier contest advantageous to the conservatives. As to the result there is but one opinion among those who profess to have any knowledge conditions w Hether they to liberals conservatives there will be a Gladstone majority. As to How Large a majority there Are wide differences opinion. The likelihood is that it will be Quot now that the Irish question seems to to for a time at least Sot aside Quot i a Aid Quot English questions and especially social , will come to the front in the next parliament for consideration will they not Quot lie answered. Quot the Irish question is not out the Way. It is bound to come up before the next parliament. The Mccarthy party is forced to press for consideration offer the alternative bolting to tile conservatives and forcing the government to go to the country for a new election. Quot if Tho Mccarthy party does not do this but permits Tho Irish question to be Laid aside then Farriell will make capital in Ireland Aud lie will gain Aud . Mccarthy will lose ground. La Tho liberals should Haven majority without the Irish votes then Tho Irish question could be ignored. But this seems a then the Irish question will to before Tho next parliament a Quot yes. It will Continuo to absorb attention and the liberals will not be Able to consider English measures and carry out their promises to their English constituents. The government will quickly discover its difficulties and will dissolve and go to the country. And Thoro it will got beaten. The agricultural vote will be thrown for the a it is now quite certain that at next years election the agricultural vote will Send in a Large Radical majority. But the singular thing is that this vote Seldom goes the same Way twice together it is scattered and Dis organized and quickly becomes discouraged. It is different with Tim vote the trades Iii the towns and cities. Quot take Hie railway servants miners any other organized body. It will get mad if promises Are broken but discussion arises Aud the members draw closer together and the vote at the next election is cast for the same party. This makes the City vote certain while the agricultural vote is a what Are your views As to social improvements a Quot i believe Power should to granted by the Imperial authorities for the exercise municipal socialism. I do not believe in state socialism but i would give to the municipality Power to do whatever it pleased whether by taxation the establishment workshops anything else. It could have As much As Little socialism As it pleased a Quot this would leave each municipality to go it own Way. Nothing should be fixed by Tim state because what might suit one place would perhaps not suit another and it is my opinion that with each working independently there would be a Large variety experiments tried. We Are much less afraid socialism than you Are in the United states. A a Youav that the next government which will be glads tonian will not be Able to do anything importance and will have Togo out office do you think the conservative government which follows will Grant such extreme municipal Powers As you speak a Quot this is looking Forward a Long Way. And no one can say what Accident May happen. But it is not impossible that a conservative government May do so. It might Grant a Large part such Power with Appeal to the Imperial department with a View furnishing a Check As the present government has done in the Case Tho county councils. Sia Charles Dilke advocates in his programme.
