LONDON , Nov. C. [ Now Yoik Herald
Cable Special to the 15in. ] The descend-
unts ot two lord chancellors of Knghind have
this weuk shown that not even the loul chan
cellor himself can entail his estate so as to
prevent its sale by spendthiltt heirs. On
Wednesday Hoddison , of Clianceiy Lane ,
auctioned off the rcmants of Lord Cairn's
splendid law llbraiy for S2.2flO. llio great
Lord Cairns , of Foitescuc ( ! rant fame , was
not present , but a number of eminent deal
cis attended on the chance oC picking up a
few valuable volumes which bad survived the
cullinc piocess through which thu Ilbiary has
passed since its piivato sale --omo months
ago. During the whole of thi1veek ; Lamloy
also has been engaged in auc
tioning of tbo household ellccts
of another recent lord chancellor
Lord St. Leonaid. The ynction sale was held
at I3oylo farm , a pretty sidu place winch was
built by the old Boylu family one hundred or
more years ago and sold by them to pay tbo
debt of the ( unions gambling Lord Dcros. It
was now resold by ordur ot the court of
cbanceiy on account of the debts and other
troubles of thu piesont notorious Lord St
Leonard. Boyle Farm Is just below Hamp
ton Couit and has a wide and beautiful river
frontage now soon to be cut up into build
Ing lots the house of the Georgian times
flat-fronted and ugly , even the big entrance
hall spoiled by the low ceiling. The grounds ,
although neglected , are pretty enoiiirh to
make up for tlio deficiencies of tlio House ,
lioth are rather famous among the country
neighbors for the wild pranks committee
hero by the present lord.
To this came the undurtakois , snnimonci
by the great lord chancellor's giandson am
heir , to lay out his still living giandfathcr.
The oht.Iawyer politely showed the under
takers to tlio door , and then immediately
drew an entail so btilct that his grandson is
now toreed to live In Australia on Sr < 00
a year allowed him by the tiustucs , while his
plctmcs , furnltine , etc. , bilng 80,000,000 In a
single week's salo. On these grounds
the piesunt lord held some of Ins
wildest sprees , fiom ono of which
ho went to commit the assault on
a tavern chambermaid which sent him to jail
tor six months. This felony enabled his
wile , a great heliess In her own light , to pro
cure a divorce. In Austialla his loidsblp has
recently been In jail for the theft ot a coat ,
\vhllehlswlfuuvciib no the family reputa
tion by devoting hoiself to charity and the
opening of charity bazaars. The utmost that
Is now hoped from Lord St. Leonards
Is that ho will not retinn fiom
his Ansliallan jail to resume his plaeo
in thu house of lords.
The sale was held In the huge bay windowed
dewed dining room , looking out upon the
Thames. Tables , some of mahogany janil
eoino of pine , were auanccd to give the auc
tioneer an elevated seat. The audience was
graded down liom the country gentry , thu celebrated are dealeis , to'Solo

ST. Pin-nnsnuno , Nov. 0. [ New Yoik
Herald Cable Special to the Uci.J : The
feeling in diplomatic circles beio Is that in
spite of the noisy , bombastic bind and swag
ger ot England , and of tlio more dignified
but sullen growls of Austiia , no power in
Kuropo vv onld move a single soldier or sailor
to icstiain Russia from acting as she pleases
in Bulgaria. A Russian statesman , who
was a member of tlio cabinet under tbo late
emperor , said tome to-day : "It was solely
due to Russian blood and Russian money
that Bulgaiia ever obtained her existence as
a nation. Thu Bulgarians are like iininly
schoolboys. If they mutiny against Russia
they must be flocgcd , that's all , and nobody
in Kuiope would prevent their chastisement.
Hcsiilcs , Bulgaria Is now on the verge of an
archy , and affords no sccmlty or protection
to Russian subjects and Russ Ian prop
erty. Kngland under similar circum
stances bomliaidcd Alexandiia and
occupied Kgypt , thus alfoullng a
valuablu pieccdentjfor our acllon In Bul

moro liberal and morn lorbeailng than Kng

would bo a very small affair compared with
England's wanton dcstinotion ot tlie second

of the 10 per cent ndvaloiem duty on Spanish
West Indian Imports. Scnor Moret and

virtually agreed that If the treaty were not
neeotlated i before January 1 , 187 , a d"forcn-
tlal I treatment of imports would bo lencwcd
on both sides , bad grave ro.isons for so dolnsr.
The prcssuie brought to bear on the Madild

Cm rlo that he was ready to begin negotia
tion. Though both Moret and Cunle show
great reserve , It Is considered almost cer
tain that they will negotiate n convention
similar to that ot General Foster in issi.
The only stumbling block and great difficulty
will a aln bo the exclusion of other count ! lea
fiom the concessions which Spiln may make
lo the United Stites In Cuba and Porlo Uico.
American diplomacy Insists that a icclpioclty
tieaty Is a special bargain in consideration
for ceilaln special advantages cionted by ono
party to the other which creates special re
ciprocal advantages that nations which have

enlly Ihltlsh Minister Sir Claie-Foid has
