NEW YonK , Juno 14. Mr , Smallcy cables
to the Tribune from London saying : "Thoro
la evidence that the defeat of the government
on Monday was pre-arranged , but there is
abundant evidence that the efforts to avert It
were slight , and the satisfaction of the ministers - '
tors , when it was accomplished , was Intense.
Till near midnight on Monday the liberals ex
pected a small majority on the budget. Tory
whips had made extraordinary efforts to get
their men up but only when they discovered
the number of liberal absentees did the vic
tory seem possible.
"Two facts are decisive as to the attitude
of the ministry. They were warned at mid
night that defeat was probable and urged to
move an adjournment of the debate but refused
fused , though both Sir Charles Dllke and Mr.
Gladatouo declared the question to bo oue of
life or death. Once beaten , the ministers of
all sections of the cabinet mada no secret of
their delight at the defeat and the decision at
uesday's meeting that the cabinet should re
, i unanimous. Tha budget was hardly
more than a pretext for what happened. It
was an unpopular budget , but it could have
boon carried If tbo ministry or party had
been united on other questions.
"Nor , but for the otner troubles , would the
more necessity for re-ur > auglng tbe duties on
beer and spirits have caused the cullnpao.
Many liberals staid away from disgust at the
condition of affairs abroad , but the final reason
for the events of Monday night and the
resignation of the cabinet on Tuesday was
thu probability that the ministry would go to
pieces on the crimes act. Gladstone , In an
nouncing hid resignation to tha queen , based
it on the budget. The queen , not deeming
the accession of her friends , the toriej ,
now opportune in their interest
telegraphed him urging his withdrawal of the
resignation , Mr. Gladstone replied that it
would , ba useless to witndratv it as nothing
would induce some nf lip colleagues to resume
office. It would bo Impossible to form a rain
iatry without them capable of commanding a

His friends say he is reluctant

NEW YORK , Juno 13. The Sun'a specla
cablegram from London , says :
The scenes in tha house of commons las' '
night when Mr. Gladstone announced the ra
tlremont of his ministry were tha most extra
ordinary that have been witnessed in St
Stephens Hall for many years , The attendance
anco and excitement nave not been equalloi
for generations. Every foot of sitting anc
standing room waa crowded and some of the
inembars suddenly developed arboreal traits
that would have delighted Darwin , climbing
Into high fplacas , like boys , swarming upon
lamp posts to witness the street shows. The
crowds in the house overflowed into the
palaca yard and the whole of the Westmins
ter district was filled with excited groups ol
men of all parties , whu cheered or hooted
every notable member according to his poli
tics , Cheering reached the climax when
Gladstone made hla appearance in the house.
Not n few nf the conservative members joined
in the applause , being apparently carried away
by tha infectious enthusiasm of the moment ,
and the visitors seemed to be Gladstonlan tea
a man. The applause seemed very grateful
to the retiring premier and ho deliberately
nuruued it by standing in his place and bowIng -
Ing to right and left , as tbe greater volume of
sounds seemed to come from this or that di
rection. When ho spoke at last it was to
make the announcement plainly and unequiv
ocally that the queen had telegraphed her
acceptance of his resignation and
of those of his colleagues in the
cabinet. Tha premier was _ palo
and hoarse , but ha spoke firmly and with a
more cheerful air than ho has had at nny time
uince Monday , His friends Bay that ho is
feeling remarkably well ; that the ending ol
the suspense by the queen's acceptance of his
resignation has bad a wonderfully salutary
i. fleet , and that aftora short rest at Hawnrden
rastla ho will rejoin his wonderful ability us a
leader of tbo opposition.

the Gladttono ministry resigned , Marquis
Salisbury bet-inn ) n supplicant for public help
and vowed ha would not take power unles the
liberals "gave hisgovernmena a show , " Glad
stone never asked a "ahow" from anybody ,
VICTOHIA HAPl't IN TUB DOWNFALL.
The queen cjuld not conceal her satisfaction
over thu clianga of politics , She never
liked Gladstone. Ho wan too
superior to her. Etiquette could not flatter
him and ho waa Impatient as a state servant
of the throne Her majesty wuj so eluted ovei
the prospect of again having a tory and
aristocrat nt tbe bead of affairs that she tele
graphed her iiceeptaccu of Gladstone'd re elg-
nation nud by wire summoned the Marquis
of Salisbury tu Balmoral to aseumo tha trust
of forming a new government.
SALISBUUX'H rusa AND OITOKTUNITIIS ,
It is understood the Mirquis of Salisbury
will rcfraldfrom tbe work of forming a now
cabinet until ho h held a conference with
all conservative It-adore. Singular as it may
Appear to foreigners , tha chief political interest
of England juac now does not eeem to be in
( he oon&titution of the now ministry tut
principally in Ihe fcreigu policy , and secondly
in tha IiUn policy of tha conservative govern
Piunell innit certainly have the measure of
. .is ambition nearly filled , lie lui succeeded
n making tha affairs of Ireland the most Im-
> ort.int subject for British interest after Kng-
ish foreign affairs , When the Irish members
n Monday night throw their votes with the
.orios . oud wroutrht the ruin of the ministry ,
hat gave to Ireland duestablianment and the
and act , they jumped upon their teats
mrrahed. They were then certain ttiat the'
aria * , lifted Into power by Itiih help , would
at once " 1'nrnollizs" the government , but the
toilos having recovered from their first * xcito-
ment , appear to attribute Gladstone' * defeat
not to bis harshness toward Ireland , but , to
, ho loss of the liberal votes drawn from him
lydlftgustat his nubmlsiion to "Irish bull-
dorlng. " Now "this difgusted liberal vote"
i far larger than the homei rule vote , The
; iiioa know that thtiy are wise in their duty
nd generation. They nro pUtlug for tlio
argor vote and the Irlih arc going to got loft.
The conservative p ty is largely con-
in lied by the prevalent opinion of tory clubs.
The Carfeton and other leading tory clubs
ill favor tha opinion advocated by Karl
Spencer , Irish viceroy ; that there Is an ab
solute necessity for n continuance of the co-
crciou policy in Ireland. On this point the
torles and a majority of the liberals will agree ,
and on it they may combine against the rad
icals and Parnellitoa , If they do the homo
rulers will ba in such a pltable minority that
their voice will count for nothing in parlia
ment , and n long lease of life will be secured
For the present mode of English rule In Ire-
BALSBOHY'S inisii rower.
It is not believed that the marquis of Sails
DUry will seek aisistanco from any of Glad-
itone's ministers. In forming his policy
-pward Ireland hit plan will bo to split the
iberal party completely by proposing a meas
ure of coercion , based on Earl Spencer's ro
[ > orts a measure the same as the Marquis of
UartmgtoD , Gladstone's war minister , and a
majority of Gladstone cabinetinsitted oncon
Linuing in suite of the opposition of Dilko ,
C/hamberlain , and Trevelyn. Such a line of
Irish policy wonld bo most certain to load teat
at least a temporary coalition between the
moderate liberals and the tories against the
radicals nnd I'aruelllto ? , and give tha new
; overnmont a tremendous majority. "
WHAT CAN niEtAND ATrEMPTt
It would be Imd to guess what would become
of the Irish homo rule under a government
whoso very start was based on a determina
tion to maintain coercion in Ireland.
NonrncoTE IIKGINS TO SCHEME.
Sir Stafford Nortcoto , the tory leader in
commons , has already been in consultation
with the Irish executive officials concerning
tha real status of affairs in Ireland , and it Is
understood that nearly every ono of these
gentlemen has ttated that no English govern
ment could afford to bo responsible for the
government of Ireland during tha coming
winter without a continuance of tha Irish
crimes act. Sir Htafforil can easily acquire
testimony that will boUter up his intentions
toward Ireland ,
CHDRCUH.L , IRELAND'S ONLY HELP.
Lord Randolph Churchill , it may bo safely
stated , is the only oue of the men likely to
form the conservative cabinet who is at _ nil
likely to advocate the abolition of coercion ,
His influence will ba far less with his party
when it is in power than it appeared to be
when ho was an opposition leader in commons ,
AS VIEWS n AT DALMOIUI- .
Telegrams from Balmoral indicate in con
ferocces which have taken place between the
queen and the marquis of Salisbury that her
majesty has shown tbatebe is concerned most
about the foreign policy of her government.
Iu court circles there is no longer any conceal
ment of rejoicing over the fall of tne liberal
government. Gladstone ) court officials now
admit ho was never in Iiarmonv with tin
queen on any subject , and her majesty anc
premier disagreed bitterly in all their dis
courses about England's foreign affairs , Glad'
stone , it is Eaid , rarely consulted the queen or
informed her of the designs of his government.
WHAT VICTOBIA VAVOBS ,
In well informed court circles it fs thoughl
thu queen strongly favors the renewal of tbe
Soudan campaign , the retention of Egypt , the
settlement of the Anglo-Russian disputes on
the basis of the Granville-Griers agreement
a renewal of the alliance witU Germany ; an
entente with Turkey and no special culliya
tion of an entente with France , A policy
embracing all thote principles has all alonf
been approved by all the parliament officials
in the British foreign office , amongst whom
the Gladstone regime had become intensely
GLADSTONE'S HETIREMENT FROM PUBLIC.
Gladstone's Intimation of a determination
to retire from public life has for the present
utterly disorganized the liberal nrrangemeuts
for the coming electoral struggle. A deaper-
ate effort bos been made to secure from him a
number of engagements to make campaign
speeches dnrlng the ensuing election , The
only engagement admitted by Gladstone it
one for Midlothian , In a recent letter de
clining a request for a speech the premier
states that ho has given a verbal promite to
bis political agents iu Midlothian that ho
will not retire without addressing that ( his
present ) constituency.
THE LII1EIIAL3 IN TROUBLE.
Liberal election o gents generally re
port great difficulty in ( obtaining cin
didates to contest Beats in all precinct * on the
liberal platform. Radical candidate * are ,
however , reported to bo plenty. The Birm
ingham liberal caucus has adopted In its pro
gramme for the campaign the proposals by the
recent miners parliamentary conference , Tne
proposals call for reformation of the house of
lords by the exclusion of bichops from seats ,
and by a specific limit to the power of peere
to delay or pruvent necessary legislation.
HIGHNESS OF CAPE COLONV.
Earl Derby , colonial minister in the cabinet
of Gladstone , in an official communication tc
tbo government of Cape Colony , has Intimated
his approval of the action of Gen , Sir Charles
Warren in the annexation of liecbuanas. The
expansion of the CAVO Colony incites Interest
in England , and la subordinate only to the
resignation of the Gladstone cabinet , and this
Interest Is made even greater by the glowing
description being publinhed of the capacities
and possibilities of the new territory. The
London Times , In an article describing 13e-
chuanoa , cays : "In territorial extent it
Is much greater than Spain , It is well
proportioned with wood , contains tha
best pasture land in South Africa , and
will grow everything , " says enthusiastic
writers , from wheat to oranges and the finest
grape : , it will furnish besides many thousands
of forma for settlers.
Tbo Spectator U alarmed apparently at the
possible outcome of this annexation ot terri
tory aud comments at some length upon the
tmbjoct says : "In same week England us-
eunib.i a protectorate over the lower Niger and
annexed tto vait province of Bechuanas , Can
anything be said now about the rapacity of
Germany in wanting the territory of tha
sultau ct Nltu , or of France in claiming tha
Congo country. Tha government of ( the
Transvaal republic Is Incensed a ) tha annexa
tion of Bechnanas to Capo Colony and will
seek an alliance with the tribes In Alaicbuana ,

INCIDENTS OF HIS BEDSIDE.
Special Telegram to The BEE.
NEW YonK , June 14.--Throughout his ill
ness Gen. Grant ha ? exhibited those traits of
character for which he has been noted. Ho
lias been patient , plucky , strong In pain , and
even true to his many incidents. Dr. Doug
las , who has been very faithful to the penoral
to great dotttmont of his practice , has slept
every night in the house , and docs so even
now , although there Is uo sign of immediate
danger to his patient. This case , however , is
one of those on which n change for the worse ,
and oven death , might come without warning
and it Is important for htm to have some one
at hand who has experience and abil
ity. The general has perfect confi
dence in his physicians and Is _ as
passive In their hands as a child
lie takes great interest in the pathology of
his disease nnd discusses it freely. Dr. Doug
las , tta active physician in charge , is at the
huuso every day. Ills attention is not solely
of a professional kind , for ho has formed a
reil ejection for his patient which Is entirely
reciprocated , Ho treatH the general with dis
tinguished consideration ana Is extremely
careful of his feelings. Notwithstanding this ,
the general is convinced that he will nqver
got well , Col , Grant knows it likewise ,
aince the late favorable change in her hus
band' * condition Mrs , Grant entertains hope
of his full restoration to health , The general
himself sauJ , on the night of his great trial ,
"let me die , " but since he has grown stronger
ho longs for his health , although wearily shak-
tig his head whoa asked about his recovery.
It Is recounted that once during his illness
the general imagined himself in command of
his old army again. He arose , stood up and
looked back as if his men were behind him.
He raised his hand as if it bore a eword ;
"Come , now , forward march. Steady ! " At
that moment ho sank back upon his bed as if
in great pain , put his hand quickly to his
face and exclaimed , "I have been struck on
on the cheek by a shell. "
When the press was charging the physicians
with having made a wrong diagnosis the gen
eral never wavered in his confidence in their
skill. He said , "the greatest battle I ever
won I was placed under arrest for. It was at
Fort Donalson , "
When the celebrated eastern bulletin was
received in which the general eaid. "I wish to
be at peace with ovary man , " a scene occurred
which ehows how llttla he cares for adulation ,
The general dictated the bulletin and every
word was his own. Gen , Badoau was preent
and when the last word was written he
reached forward , threw his arms around the
old hero ana exclaimed , "Dear , dear , gen
eral , " and kissed him twice. Throughout the
general remained unmoved. He looked
neither to the tight nor to the loft and
uttered not h word. Previous to this Gen ,
Badean was sitting on the stairs with his face
in his hands and crying bitterly. "Why ,
what's the irattor , general ! " asked one who
passed him , Babeau burst out crylnp and
between bis eobs said : "O don't call me gen
eral. There is but one general and he is
Thera are two stsries current in regard to
the heavy medical bills which are being in
curred by General Grant. Four very costly
physicians have been employed almost con-
tiLuously during tha last six months , A care
ful estimate of the aggregate of the lour nc <
counts gives § 40,000 as the sum ,
which judging by the quality
and the quantity oftho work done
by the four doctors must have been demanded
at the beginning of the present month Dr.
Douglas now lives in the house , neglecting
his other practice altogether , and Bra. Sands ,
Shrady and Barker j havu averaged a call per
day , counting in the days which they have
devoted entirely to this case. All are specialists -
ists , accustomed to large fees. Uba suggestion
that they are content to accept the incidental
advertising in lieu of cash remuneration is
not tenable because the job baa not
on the whole made a good reputation for the
two whosestatus could not be raised by connec
tion with a celebrated person. One story is
that George W. Childs has paid the bills ,
Ho was here about the 1st of Juno and was a
visitor at the Grant house. His Intimacy
with the general is well-known and bis liber
ality is proverbial. Childs has since declined
to'stata whether ho met any or all of the
The second explanation is that the phyei
cians have taken in payment orders on Web
ster and company , tha firm which is to pub
lish Grant's book. The income from that
source is bound to bo large. Mark
Twain , a member of Webster & Co. , says
that he does not personally know of any such
arrangement. But that bis assent or that of
his partner would not bo essential. It is cer
tain that the general's present resources yield
only $27,000 _ a year , which would barely cover
the ordinary expenses of bis houeehold. leav
ing nothing for Mich Immense doctor bills as
must have been now rendered.
The reason why Dr. Douglass is kept on
guard night and day is the patient's expecta
tion that ha will eventually choke to death and
he wishes to have expert help st band. While
he sleeps sitting In a chair , unable to lie down
for an hour , Dr , Douglas occupies a bed in an
adjoining room with a bell eo bung that a pull
by n cord at Grunt's hand will awaken him.
This precaution la in addition to the watching
of an attendant.
NEW YOBK , June 13 After Doctors Doug *
las , Shrady and Sands had held their usual
Sunday consultation at General Grant's house
to-day Dr. Douglas nald that the general had
suffered eomo little disturbance durlcg last
night , the cause of which was attributed to
easing some usparagus but that ho slept
with little break from 1 a. in. to
5 a , m , and was not suilerinp
to-day , though feeling the heat. Dr , Shrady
caid that the swelling on the outside of trie
throat had increased , and had affected the p -
tlout'n voice. Col. Fred Grant , after the con
sultation , eald that hla father had a bad night ,
that the general was growing weaker , and
that his condition now seems to bo one of In
creasing Indebllity without pain , The colonel
nel added that If possible the general would
be removed from the city on Tuesday next ,
one week earner than before intended.

Marshall ] on the Brink ol Poverty.
Special Telegram to The BEE.
WASHINGTON , June 14. It is well
known that the fund for the payment of
United States marshals is very low.
There will be none until July 1st , the .begin
ning of the fiscal year , when the legislative
executive and judicial appropriations become
operative , The marshals who have been re
cently appointed have shown no eager desire
to enter their offices. They would rather
wait until they can get some money. There
fore they haye in a number o ! instances ,
failed to take the oath of office. One of the
most prominent of the appointees did not
know what he wts bringing upon himself.
Not taking the oath the republican whom he
will supercede , sent to the department of
justice a requision for a small sum of money.
Attorney-General Garland upon seeing the
requisition telegraphed to the new man who
had not assumed his duties : "I wont your
oath of office , " In about four hours he re
ceived the following reply : "I have just
mailed my oath of office and will enter upon

NEW YotiK , June It In eplto of the moat
gloomy crop reports , wheat at Now York has
declined lo on the week. The difficulties
against which the bulls content ] ata Imma-
dlato , aid the near by thing usually makes
the prices , The London correspondent of
Bradatreot's writes as follows under data ef
May 28 :
& "It is useless to refer in detail to the grain
trade , for there is none worth mentioning.
Business has been pretty well prostrated since
the prospect of peace seemed to bo assured.
Heavy losses have been suffered by those who
speculated in whont and oats , especially
in the latter grain , of which
some merchants bought very extensively
when war _ tuoiora were flying about , The re
ported injury to crops in Europe generally
and the unfavorable prospects of the Ameri
can wheat harvest fall to produce any ap-
preclablo effect , Buyers look at the enormous
quantity of wheat afloat or shipping and
ignore- the crop reports , "
Under the present conditions ths probabili
ties as to the Indian corn crop must bo regarded -
gardod as a very important factor in deter
mining tha near future of wheat. If wo are
to htvvo a big corn crop it will go far to keep
down wheat , The effect of an increase of
500e 00 bushels in tha visible supply of wheat
last week was ro-onforced o-day by confident
predictions of n further increase this woek.
It has been pointed out how the country is
threatened with low puces for wheat and n
small crop. Ad\ ices trcnn St. Paul BIO favor
able as regards spring wheat , and San Fran
cisco telegraphs that light rains have benefit
ed late wheat and a batter yield is promised.
The last number of the London Miller at
hand hand has the following :
"To a certain extent 1885 is the first year
when harvest probabilities do not exceed the
requirements. It is , in fuct , the first chock
to the advance of area In America while low
prices are in themselves a check to produc
tion throughout the country , Even India
cannot grow and sell wheat in London at the
terms forced upon the trade in 1884-85. AH
in the United Kingdom 4Do to 45o is the
range below which wheat cultivation Is not
recognized as profitable ; so in America and
The condition of the rye crop in Central Eu
rope is attracting much attention , as it forms
the staple food there. The plant has been
touched by frost In north Germany and is yel
low. Some damage is also feared to ths grain
in Austria , where the weather has been unfa
vorable. The best information in London re
garding wheat growing in exceptionally favor
able circumstances Is that India cannot compete - ,
pete with America in the wheat export trade.
It appears that the government rail way sys
tem is an annual burden on the people of In
dia of 47,000,000. A cry of "India for the
Indians" is promised in the noor fnturo.
The situation on the New York stock exchange - ,

week both at Chicago and St. Louis.
Transactions in wool ire light , manufactur
ers being inclined to await aevelopmunts be
fore buying. Stocks are light and prices arc
quite low , bat fail to stimulate purchasers.
The arrival of new wool from the southwest
has been slow but ! s DOW picking up , In
Ohio shearing Is under way , opening late in
the north. It is held by the dealers at prices
which have prevailed in Texas since the be
ginning of the season. The cost cannot bo
realized In the eastern markets
and yet speculators and dealers
have bought qulto freely nnd prices appear to
bo still well surtained. This side of the Mis
eisslppl the quality and quantity of the 'crop
nro cot yet determined so that the probable
values are not well indicated.
The American pig iron market generally
has been more stagnant than previously. No
direct cuts have been announced in prices
but it is an open secret that
continual shading for customers who
take round lota has resulted in from EOc to
31.00 decline on the average in regularly
quoted prices , Steel rails are dull and but
few orders are offered. There is little likoli-
hook of any advance in quotations at present ,
Iron mills have changed but little , and those
changes which have taken placa have been in
favor of the striker * , two additional mills

MATOn BOYD GOES TO WASHINGTON TO IN-
LIGHTKN GROVEK A CHICAGO INTERVIEW.
Special Telegram to the BEE ,
CHICAGO , Juno 13. By the early part of
the coming week Nebraska offices may bo
expected to begin to drop , James E. Boyd ,
of Omaha , having been Invited to Washington
by the administration to meet with Dr.
Miller , has arrived hero on Ms way to that
city. "Tho president is without the usual ad
vices from Nebraska , " Boyd said to-day to
the BBS reporter , ' the state being without a
democratic congressman or senator , and it is
perhaps owing to this embarrassment that no
appointments have been made with us , There
are now in the state ninety postoflices
which are vacant from expiration cf
terms or from resignation and I suppose
these will bo considered , I do not expect
changci where the terms have not expired will
be rapid and in many cases the republicans
will continue through their terms , but I be-
Ilovo before the four years are over that every
poatoflico will be filled by democrats , In
Omaha the incumbent has two years more to
serve , which I believe ho will serve , although
charges of partisanship could bo sustained
mainet ? him , but the ouica has been well con
ducted , In railway postal service I
have been asked to name several
for positions , an ! have done ea. I expect
that astho men fall to pass their monthly ex
aminations or trials they will bo displaced by
democrats , but the republicans who pass all
right will ba retained. "
"In recommendations for postmasters will
you give editors tte preference ? "
"Yee ; all through the state the country
democratic pauerH have never had any pat
ronage , and it Is right they should have what
cau ba given them now , By this means wo
CUD build up a good country press , which will
be of tervico to the party In the
future , Newspapers are being started in
anticipation of the policy and only to-day a
mun came to K9R me ab ut starting one , "
"How about tbu matihaUhlp ? "
' I in in it peculiar position on the marshal-
thip. Ellis L. liltrbower , the republican in
cumbent , married my daughter last Wednes
day and they are now over at the Palmer.
Ills term runs nearly four yeara longer. "
"He ii a good man , Is he not ! "
"Of course he is , or ho would not have
married my daughter , "
"Are you going to be a father-in-law ! "
"No ; when the time cornea to ask for her
his resignation I shall assent , but Garlnnd
hai said It would not occur for n year yet. "
lloyd Deemed to rather enjoy the complica
tions into which the marriage had led him ,
and Intimated ho might send the couple oft
to Kuropo to even up matters.
Mr. lioyd will remain in town over to-day
