Potier representative says there is no truth in tie report \ that he had been in consultation with i Tilden in Kew York about thei vesti 1 gating presidential frauds he had seen Tilden professionally not politically and had not been asked to introduce a Resolution looking to an investigation. One of the great and perplexing it questions of the times is As to whether or not senator Don Cameron a grown daughter approved of his marriage to a girl two years younger than lie self. Re some newspaper authorities say she .1 did and others declare that she did of not. The Telegraph reports fail to i mention her presence at the wedding. In View of the decision of the German emperor to exclude from the German. A Fine Art Section of the Paris exhibition i any picture recalling the War of 1870, i the French government has resolved to exclude French pictures commemorating that War. It would seem As though i the French government would hardly live needed the example of Germany to induce it to adopt the excluding policy As regards pictures of the War of �?T.\i870. For what purpose would it Dis a May pictures of that struggle the americans Are figuring on the amount that will float into the coffers of this country should a european War break out. But the War is an uncertainty while the exhibition has in reality broken out and will no doubt be a Drain on the currency of this country. It is estimated Liat at least 15,000 Rich americans will Cross tie Ocean and spend at least 81,000 Eracli and Liis alone will about make the amount that the United states received from the Alabama award while quite a Large sum will be paid by those who cannot afford 81,000 each. Since Edison invented the Telephone and phonograph lie Lias More orders for new inventions than he can attend to. One party wants him to invent a Boneless Shad another asks him to turn his attention to a Gas meter that wont always lie in of tie company a to Laird desires a pocket Book Liat will always contain a Dollar or two and while lie is about it he might As Well infuse some of his inventive Genius into a flight of stairs that wont creak like All possessed when a Man sneaks into at night. The Prince of Vales thinks that he would go to India to shoot tigers Tolian to fight tie russians. The trouble wit i tie russians is Liat if tie Prince should slut lii self up in a Tower nine stories Leigh and wait for the sepoy to go out and drive up a russian for Liim to Sloot at it would be just like the russian to shoot the sepoy and then come up in Liis own Way and Knock the stuff tug out of the Tower.

Tilden a friends Are said to be at once disappointed grieved and enraged at speaker Randall for holding that resolutions for an inquiry into tie Florida frauds Are not matters of privilege and Tylius proper to be introduced at any time like Rich men to modern society. Such resolutions Are certainly matters of tie a highest privilege to or. Tilden and Bis friends. For is it not to Weir Chiefest privilege to Eliout frauds and to limit for them the bankrupt tax repeal will undoubtedly take effect next september. The attempt to postpone until january was made by those who hoped to Amend the existing Law instead of repealing it. But this was Defeated by the argument that before further legislation in that direction is bad the country had better try temporarily the Experiment of doing without any National bankrupt Law and see How it works. The statement was made some weeks ago that postmaster general key had declared that he worked for Tilden and believed him honestly elected and that Hayes was put into office by fraud. Or. Key notices these reports to say that he never made any such declarations that he did not work for Tilden and that he believes the electoral com Mission settled the question of the presidents title justly. Postmaster general Icey alluding to the much explained civil service order sensibly declares that after office hours he allows his clerks to do As they choose.

An article in a German Magazine on tie state of Japan declares that 1,800,000 children Are receiving instructions on the european principle in 22,000 schools. They Are also beginning to print newspapers in the vernacular in that coi try. There is considerable speculation in the papers As to the course of the United states in the event of a european War. But it is tolerably certain that the United states will observe equal Good Faith toward both sides and make Money impartially out of both sides. Our dispatches from some seventy five Points in Ohio and Indiana indicate that the ice and Frost of the last few nights have very materially injured vegetables and Early fruits. Peaches seem to have suffered most especially in the North. The wheat crop is also somewhat damaged. Speaker Randall lives in a cheap looking Little House upon Capitol Hill about tie same kind of a House occupied by a Philadelphia Mechanic. He has a Large family and his friends say that he is so poor that he is obliged to live in tie quietest Way in order to make both ends meet. Peace or War. Things said by exalted personages to be Given out to the world Are Apt to be More distinguished for some other peculiarity Tolian that of strict accuracy consequently the fact Liat the Empress of Russia said on sunday Liat a peace was assured does not put aside altogether the probability of War. It is not consistent with the spirit of russian diplomacy for officials to declare the result of great negotiations while Toliese Are actually on foot and that the negotiations with England has As yet reached no Point that can be called final is evident from the reticence in Landon. It is Lio Wever not easy to see what purpose there could be in giving out to the russian capital information Likely to encourage Hopes unless Liere was a Good basis of fact beneath it. We May regard these statements therefore As very encouraging made in they must have been in the full knowledge that some concessions or admissions Lead been reached on one Side or the other in View of which i a hostile attitude could not be maintained. If an understanding with England has been reached the Case for Russia will become very simple at the turkish capital and the russian army will leave the pashas of that now agitated City to fight out Between themselves that Battle for supremacy which Lias always been a characteristic of moslem states. Osman Pasha through the Prestage Liis name Lias with the army will become in that Case practically the dictator of the Padi Shalit a policy and will maintain the existing Sultan against All plots to dethrone him. When he was outside the limits of his department. General Kautz was instructed to Send this review of the Case and the action of the judge advocate general to the members of the court. In complying with these instructions general Kautz Atta Clied to tie document sent to him from the chief of the Bureau of military Justice Bis reply to the same. It was a Slarp caustic Well written reply and was tie very opposite of complimentary to the judge advocate general. This Case we Are informed is the first of tie kind Liat Lias Ever occurred in the army in which an official of general Kautzm a rank Lias been concerned. As a precedent Especial importance at tallies to it. The articles of War prohibit a a publications of Liis nature tier before Ucli depends upon the interpretation Given to that word and whether a line will be drawn Between a the act of offering a Book or writing to the Public by Sale or by Gratis toils distribution and the circulating of such a document As general Kautz prepared among army officers alone. The court martial Lias adjourned sine die and most of the members have taken their departure for their respective stations. The result of their deliberations ill the Case of general Kautz has been forwarded to a , where it will be made Public in the due course of events. Fashion notes.

Mantles made of strips of lace insertion and velvet and bordered with lace will be worn again this summer. They Are very stylish. Kautzm a Opp exec. What Makos tramps the army of tramps increases in number. Ashen a boy has been permitted to live in dissolute idleness until he is twelve or fourteen years old the idea of work has become a horrible punishment to him and if then it is insisted upon he leaves Home and becomes a tramp. The main cause of the curse we now suffer from is that fathers in the cities and towns have brought up their sons in idleness and there will be no Relief from it until the old family discipline is established and boys Are no longer permitted to run the streets. Does any one know of a family turning out a tramp where the children were trained to obedience and habits of Industry there is not such a Case on record. If any one wants to know where All the tramps come from it can be answered by saying they come from families of lax government Over indulgent parents who leave their children to grow up in idleness. If any one wishes to know what the cure is let them go Back to first principles in the government and training of children. If they Are taught lessons of Industry and honesty in their youth when they grow up they will not depart from them. Why he is tried by court martial a novel Case involving an important precedent. As the trial of general Kautz at Omaha has attracted much attention Bot i in military and civil circles we give our readers this morning a Brief of tie Case in the summer of 1877 a general court martial was convened in the department of Arizona of a Biclie general Kautz was then commander for the trial of Captain Campbell sixth cavalry for misappropriating government property and the sentence of the court was that Captain Campbell be dismissed the service. The proceedings and finding of the court were approved by general Kautz the department commander and were then forwarded to a Ashing ton. Judge advocate general Dunn reviewed the papers and recommended to the Secretary of avar and the president that the proceedings be set aside which was done. The review of the Case by the judge advocate general commented severely on general Kautz. The two principal Points we believe were irregularity in taking testimony and the fact that the proceedings and finding were approved in Cincinnati Ohio by general Kautz England a terms. England a terms Are apparently As follows first the restriction of tie russian programme for Bulgaria to Bulgaria i Ortli of the Balkans tie Bulgaria South of the Balkans As defined by the san Stefano treaty to be settled rather under the provisions suggested by the constantinople conference than under tie conquerors treaty. Second and third ii Asia Russia must Content lie self with Batum and As the larger slice of Armenia was a territorial compensation in lieu of a War indemnity that Turkey could not pay England will see that there is now a a definitive settlement of to lies War indemnity in Cash or its equivalent. Fourth As to the respective Rigits of the nations in the Dardanelles they shall remain without change. And fifth thessaly and Epirus shall be accorded the same rights of self government Given to the Christian subjects of the Sultan in the slavic provinces. In Liis scheme is presented formally what England desires to substitute for the settlement of the same Points proposed by the treaty of san Stefano. Liis is the plan she Lias incessantly desired to submit and in regard to which i she has been peculiarly reticent. It is therefore on the basis of this plan that the recent attempt to reconcile the opposing claims has been made which attempt is reported to have made promising Progress. A no More Welcome proposition could be made than to substitute an immediate settlement of the War indemnity for the future settlement of which Russia was to bold armenian territory As Security. As to the Dardanelles it May be said that the plan simply defers the solution and in fact the treaty itself left All tie details of their future to be determined Between the Czar and the Sultan. Instead of one Christian Semi Independent province the same territory will be made into three Semi Independent provinces and the grecian subjects of the Sultan Are put up to balance As emancipated christians the bulgarians Liose sympathies with Russia Are More Lively. But the treaty promised what Liis plan proposes to re form and there is no obvious inconsistency. Russia so far As appears May accept this plan without giving room for the charge Thot she has abandoned any great Point to English dictation save of course the important Point of tiie Dardanelles. She hoped to realize now her easy Access to the Mediterranean. By this plan that Hope is relegated to the future. But As against a great naval Power she May Well deem it unwise to insist upon Point that could in fact Only be successfully held by warfare on the seas. Sitting Bull the hostile chief is preparing or another season of War. The regular annual troubles wit i the indians Are being threatened.
