Cable bpcclal to the Hi.r.TlioiiKh ] the
electoral h.ittlo has ended In the defeat of
Gladstone It has bestowed no substantial
victory on Ids opponents Iwcauso tlie appeal
to the people has produced no party capable
of forming a strong government ccitaln to
last six months. The only hope of Keeping
Gladstone out of powci , lies In the formation
of a coalition between the unionists and
lories , but coalitions in nnghnd are puncr-
blally short lived. Thcio is , ho\\e\ei , no
other means of safety if Gladstone Is to bo
ousted. This is the single point on which a
thorough iigiecment exists In the unionist's
I am theicfoto convinced that Hnrtlngton
and his lolloweis will swallow any amount of
principle In order to lemovo their fotmer
chief. What Chambcilaln will do is not so
ccitatn. Ho can scarcely afford to go Into the
toiy camp without deciding to pail com
pany delinitely with the Icadcishlp of tlie
radical paity , whlcli ho still hopes to recover.
.Much as the IMimlngham caucus chief Is dis
liked , his appearance In a coalition move
ment would render him absolutely hateful to
tlio largo masses of radical \otcrs who still
expect ills leturn to the fold. As he is a cun
ning , ambltiotLs man hols not likely to wicck
his piospccts absolutely to make Sallsbuiy's
position secure.
with piomisln , ? outside suppoit by atoiy or
coalition gov eminent against tlio Gladston-
iansand I'arncllites , because , alter hatred for
Gladstone , the strongest tie between the
so-called unionists is the tear of a new appeal
to the country. Should a coalition govern
ment be overthrown parliament would have
to bo dissolved , and as the tories , wained and
encouraged by the election , would be certain
to tluow over the llbcial-unionlsts , the allies
ot Chamberlain and his whig and radical
lump would cnevltably bo

Then the small fry llboial secedeis would
certainly follow Goschen and Tievclyan Into
retirement , and the victoiy attliepolls would
rest decisively either with the homo uilcis or
thn toilcs. Chambcilain , Haitington and
their followers know this well. Thcioforo
they will go to considciaule lengths to main
tain nn auti-Gladbtonan ! administration in
"Will their followers leiuain tine to them is
by no means ccitain. A heady I have pri
vate information that seveial liberal-
unionists liavo made their peace with Glad
stone ,
Frankly , thoelectlons just concluded have
removed many illusions on botli sides. Be-
foio tlio event party prophets vveie convinced
citiici thai the magic of Gladstone's name
would sweep ovoiythlnit before It , or that the
cry " ( he union Is In danger" would arouoo
the fanaticism of the Biillsh woikingmcu to
such a height that all party consldciations
would disappear and tlio torlcs bo
tiiumphantly letumed in three constituencies
out of tour to save the Intogiity of the em
pire. Nothing of this ins happened.
Tin : woinuNo CLASSES ,
as a whole , have supported home rule , and
desertions are more duo to i elisions fanatic
ism than enthusiasm lor tlio safety of the
empire. It is woithy of lumark that the de-
soi lions were almost wholly confined to shop
kecpeis and members of the wealthy classes.
This Is shown cleaily by an examination of
THE ropuiAi : VOTE.
Ono million , live hundred thousand citizens
recoided their votes for the toilos and libcial-
unionists , while 1,40 , ODO voted for homo
rule. These figures arc round numbers.
' " " ) unionist majority , thmoforc , Is com-
IF jsed of one vole in cveiy twenty-nine not
much of a majority to boast about and oven
tills majoiity Is almost wholly duo to the
state of absolute dlsoiganUallon In which
the Hbcial paity was thrown by the do-
fee tlon of the vvhigs and Chambcilainito
radicals. No one not accustomed to have
actual cxpuilenco in election woik can form
nn adequate Idea of
In which the liberal paity wont to the polls.
Now , what will bo the outcome ? In my
opinion , a coalition government of some sort
orother Is Inevitable. If llartlngton accepts
the prmnitMshlp , with Salisbury as foiei.rn
bccretiuy , the coalition may iouiafn In power
foi a considerable petlod. In that case thcro

Special to the BKK.J The 1'ails season is
at Its last gasp , The Ballon of the Tiench
chamber has como to a cloic. The princes
have been expelled and the greet fete nation-
aid of the Hlh of July U over. A moment of
lolsuio has aulvcd and people aio beginning
quietly to take stock , as It weio , In the
political hltuatlon , dUiegardlng at present
the consideration of the mazes ami entaulo-
menls of possible IntcnmUonal complica
tions and consldciiinr chiefly home politics.
The ono question of predominant Intoicst
which arises Is , "Have the chances for the
stability of the Fiencb , republ'c been dimin
ished or streucthcnoa , or In any way affected
by recent events ? "
It was tlio subject of universal remark that
the enthusiasm manifested at the fete lost

the unfortunate clrcumstauro tUut a dtunch-
Ingrain did not cease to pour dovvu during

the ardent spirits of Intending merrymakers.
Duo of the principal republican papers iu-

apparently flagging enthusiasm this ycat
from analogies In man led life.
Just as the wild ecstacy of the jo'ing ' lover ,
who has for the llrsf time been bidden by his
sweetheart to hope , gives way to n feeling ot
calm content when lie Knows himself certain
of the actual possession of his mlsticss , so In
llko manner the people feel they have the re

losing it , and ( hey arc satisfied. However
that may be , It Is Impossible for an nnpioju-

On the other hand , by the 111 judged publi
cation of the manifesto of the Comto do
Paris and the cuit , almost Insolent touo of
the Due d'Aumalc's letter the present 1 nten-
tlous and desires of the Orleans piinccs have
been unmasked and the nation has been foic-
vvaincd. Any danger , however , ota sctions
attempt ever being made to put the Comto do
1'ails on iho tlnono of Franco Is so impiob-
able that it hardly need bo considered. The
Comtude Pails has , after all , on o\tremely
small following. The nation Is at heart re
publican. A fuw old ailstorratlc families
will , It is true , still continue to sulk but their
total mmibcis when added up make but an
InfinHcbSiiiul fiaction of the whole people.
Tho3,500,000 , votes , which were thrown last
Octobei foi the reactionary party and which
the monarchists have always peislstcd 111
claiming as uav ing boon cast In favor of the
re-establishment of the monarchy , wcio in
icallty intended clilelly as n protest against
thoTonqiiln expedition , the ve.xnllous , petty
prosecutions of the clergy and the general
tendency of the population In laigo cities to
diift toward ladicalism.
Tlio great ino\pung.\blo stiength ot the re
public lies In the fact , that bjsldus lacking a
sufllclunt numerical support , the Comtc do
1'ails has not the spirit , or , rather , is too hon
orable to desiio to mount the throne at the
cost of civil war , whereas the rcpublicins , foi
their part , are fhmly resolved to make It a
question of civil war if needs be , and to resist
to the bitter end any attempt at mouaichical
The Comto de Paris said in Ids manifesto :
"At the decisive hour I shall ba ready. " A
week latci , however , In his formal icply to
Lambert do Saint Oroiv , at Tunbridgo Wells ,
nc slightly modified that phraso. "I wait , "
he said , "till Fiance ib icady. " Exactly , but
Franco is not icady , 1101 likely ever to boand
there's the nib. All this is so thoroughly well
understood hoio that the manifesto Itself , al
though an important political act , by which
the Comte do Paris deliberately took up his
stand as a piptonder , has attracted loss atten
tion and called foi th less comment fiom the
Paiis papers than what is called "I/incident
d'Aumale. "
That little rplso-to , It must bo confessed ,
Isanytliliijbut cicdltablo to any of the par
ties concerned. The conduct of the govern
ment in striking the name ot thoDucd'Au-
male fiom the lollsof tlio Fionch army , three
years after having been domivod of com
mand , was indeed a most needle- , * and gratu
itous affront. Thegoveinmentmeicly wished
to liavo an excuse for driving him out of
Franco , but the methods they atlopto.1 was
mean and shabby to the last degree.
Moreover , thoglbes levelled In the chamber
at the dnko by General Boiilanger were ut
terly uncalled for , and only added insult to
injury. Tlio gencial twitted a man , who had
proved himself n billllant and capable soldlci
almost befoio the minister of warwashorn ,
witii having owed his promotion to being the
son o his father. Of course nobody ever
thought of denylnz that the Due d'Annnlo
was pushed to the front and given the oppor
tunity to distinguish himself at an early age.
Ho took advantage of that opportunity ,
however , and made a name for himself at the
ago of twenty-ono by the capture of Abd-el-
Kadcr , together with 3,000 prisoners , an Im
mense tieasuro and tlio entire correspondence
of that redoubtable warrior. Moreover , the
Due d' Anmale has slnco held several of the
hlshest commands and , whether as governor
general of Algeila , or commander of tlio Sev
enth army corps and leorganl cr of the east
ern line of defenses , or as piestdont of tlio
court uiaithil whicli tried Maishal Bazainc ,
ho has invariably shown himself possessed
of the very highest military capacity.
PilncodeCondoowcd his early pomotlon
to the accident of blilh and the favor of
Hlchclleu , but that did not piovcnt him from
winning Iho battle of Itocrol at tlio ago of
twcntj-two and going down to posterity as
Lo Grande Condo. Two wrongs , however ,
don't make a right and the Due d' Aumalo
has thrown away much of the sympathy that
would othciwlso have been felt for him by his
rude loply addiessed to that quiet , unoflend-
Ing , good-natuicdold gentleman , who has the

enleied in the company.of Sir Ilonry James ,

being gone.
About a score ot ladies were ready In the
gallciy tannini : Ihcmsclves nnd the fans
waved dofiautly at Dilkeas ho resumed his
place in Iho vvitncbs box. The fair dolend-
ant gave him -a look as if internally singing
thu second line of th < } first verso of the famil
iar old Biltish ballad , , "Oh ! Would That We
Had Never Mel. " bt far away his loidship
and Iho witnesses exchanged salutes , i\s \
Mathuws arose to conclude the cioss-cxaml-
niitlon. IIis questions had evidently been
pieparru. They were calculated and , pethaps ,
with the purpose to put Dilke on a well
tilled pincushion.
"Yon said yesterday , Sii Cliarlcs , lliat on
IhoGthofMay , 1B33 , you met your pies cut
wlfo at Mr. rarl's. "
"Was she man led then ? "
"Yes. Her husband died in July , 1884. "
"You staled yesterday thai you had never
coinmlttuu adultery with Mrs. Crawford. "
" 1 . vo nevei done so. "
"Did you ov6r kiss hei ? "
"Never. Ineverliavo been guilty of any
undue familiarity with her. "
"Uad you ever given her any cause of of
fense ? "
"I think not. "
"So that Ihero was no moro reason for
selecting jon to accuse as the person who had
seduced her than thcie was for selecting any
oilier person in Iho world. "
" 1 think , as far as she wasconcerncd.theie
was not. "
In this last question was clearly exercised
the ait of bharp summing up interlocutory
wise lo the jury , nnd tlio court-room buzzes
showed what an effective argument it was
against Dllko's conspiracy suggestion.
The next question was perhaps Intended to
sliov.'tlijt Dilko as a witness came to protect
himself and not the woman.
"You made a speech at Chelsea in which
yon cave jour reafons for addressing the
queen's proctor. Did you bay you wefc lied
to fid dross him by tlic pel sedition nnd Intolerable
erable lorturc of the newspaper comment ? "
"It was n long speech , and 1 cannot say
absolutely what wcio the words I used , but
substantially what you suggest Is coneol. "
Then the queen's counsel vlvlscctor , raised
Ills scalpel thus : *
"Did you ever tell Mis. Crawford she was
llkohei motliciV"
"Ko. At any ralo not under any such clr-
cumstanees as she describes. It is Impossi
ble for mo lo recoiled whether I ever made
such an observation. "
A deep scarlet flush touched tlio check
bones of the witness as he listened to the
next question whilu thQ gallery was paused
and a hush In the atmosphere touched even
tbo stenographic pens as Dilke turned icst-
lessly to answer It. '

"Were yon upon intlmalo terms with Mr ,
Eustaco Smlili , Mrs , Crawford's father ? "
"Yes for " .
, some years.
"Did you travel with thorn In 1875 ? "
"Yes. "
"And received Mr. Smith's hospitality ? "
"I was frequently in their house. "
Not until Mrs. Crawford may clvo some
testimony , perhaps on Tuesday , as a self-im
molating witness of her huaband , w 111 the eig-
nliicance of these questions and the craft of
Dllko's last answer appear.
"Did jou spend a good deal of your time
In Fiance from 1574 to lb&0 ? "
"lalway spent about two months and a
half there.1
' Wcio you familiar with French habits
audwajfl ? "
"Not In any particular sense. The part I
Inhabited was In the extreme south , nnd they
are there n simple , primitive people' "
A short re examination by the queen's
proctor followed In an endeavor to round
smoothly off the bristling points which the
husband's counsel had rqiscd against D ke ,
when the latter icsum6d his siat In the b6dy
of thu court.
George Lewis loft the court slicking hands
with his fair client. At thr same time others
who had been scaled between the IJusbatul
and wlfo also loft. This put th6tn near each
other , llo looked dlscoucoincd. She seemed
amused and then moio so when , bv the cxl-
ccnclcs of the crowded room , Dllko
was obliged to sit next but ono to Crawford.
SaiahGroy Dilke and her housekeeper , thc.u
his solicitor ? , then Mi. and Mrs. llufljo , with
whom "Fanny" had been In hiding ; then the
foolman , Shanks ( the appropriateness of this
name raising nn audlblo laughter ) , Goodu
and Woods wcrosucccaslvoly called.
The proctor's object In the testimony of nil
these was to contradict Mrs. Crawford's de
tail of the dates nnd frequency of visits and
her secrecy with Dilko In his house. Such
object was accomplished so far as negative
testimony llko "did not sco" can have any
value. The husband's counsel , In cross-cx-
nminatlon , however , laid the foundation for
questions to Mrs. Crawfoid hereafter. Tills
cross-CMinilnation elicited fiom the solicitor
oi' the witness that his client , Sir Charles ,
paid "Fanny's. " wages while housemaid to
the Kulllcs , and from the latter that they did
not need or afford to keep a housemaid. It
was also elicited that "Fanny , " although n
servant , was "free to go and come ns she
pleased. "
During this evidence Mrs. Crawford , evi
dently not fearing a chance of collusion ,
was iimkiiiK suggestions to Indurvvlck , Ifcr
husband's counsel , while ho was taking
notes , each familiarly smiling. In the cross-
examination from ono of thu "Jcemes yellow
plushes , " Ihero was elicited Iho reply s
"That the one lady ho only once admltlcd
was Mrs. Crawlord. "
Being asked If ho was told her name ho
admitted that ho was not and bungled In an
attempt lo explain how ho knew that particu
lar one lady owned that name.
The impression produced by the three
"Jeomcs" secfued to bo that they were
schooled witnesses. For instance , all wore
certain thatltfrs. Crawford and Mrs. Ash ton
Dllko vvciolho only ladles whoever called lo
sco Dllko. These foOJtmeu in looks , demeanor
meaner and pronunciation proved tliat
Thackeiay'a portialtuies of their class were
not exaggerations. When the court ad
journed until Monday doubtless nearly cvciy
audilor felt that whatever may bo Iho verdict ,
whetjioriu favor of Sir Chailes or Mis.
Crawford , the effect of the former's evidence
'has ' made him n social exile. Ho has refused
to clear a mother's name and had needlessly
smiichcd that of her daughter , besides ad
mitting circumstances which tended to
strengthen and weaken hisstoiy.
