All the noiHi of Kuglnnd Is up In nrins
agntnst tlio coercion bill. Kvcry newspaper
on either bldo hi Durham , Yorkshire , Lanca
shire , or tlio border counties , prints accounts
of the excitement ovci the question In tlio
United Slates. That veteran , Joseph Cowan ,
who refused to enter parliament at the tlmo
of tlmlastelections , has been much .sought
after hero to-day for an expression of his
views , remarked that nil the evidence goes to
show that the geminent ] mean to persist
In their headlong course ; that they mean to
face tlio consequence of their cross
policy. They will illller from other
governments that have plajcd at
the name gnmo If they have not to repent ,
lie also added that the government , by aid
of cloture , will no doubt pet their repressive
measure , but It will fnll , ns all similar
measures have failed. It would appear that
every Kngllsh party bccomcsdemonted when
they coma to deal with Ireland , notwith
standing the bitter , humiliating axpetienco
of n generation. They will rccognl/o the
truth of the axiom , endorsed by all history ,
that It'S ' Impossible to extinguish a national
idea by lon'al enactment. The Irisli people
arc resolved to llvo their own life ,
to manage their affairs In their own wny ,
anil there Is no power in Englnnd to prevent
them. The sooner this conclusion Is accepted
and acted upon the bettor It will be , botli for
England and lor licland.

nud was recently suspected of union views ,
but the above piovcs ho Is the same indepen

The force of American opinion Is strongly

At a meeting In Chelsea to-night a letter
was read from Gladstone In which ho said :
"Our adversaries have availed themselves ol
tlio fact that 1 have taken a largo share In
placing tlio Iilsh problem as a question ol
practical politics before the country to pleail
that it Is a personal aifnir , that It Is not n
tuie conviction , and that the ueople are nol
in eenulno sympathy with the Justice of the
Irish demand. A little reserve on my parl
will help them to bo sooner undeceived anil
to profit more eilcctlvoly by tlio teaching
they are already beginning to receive the

WASHINOTO.V , April0. ISpccial Telegram
to the Br.K.j A bitter contention has ex
isted foi some tiino between Second Comp
troller , Maynard , now assistant secretary of
the treasury , and Secretary of War Kndlcott.
Secretary Kndlcott has demanded that tlio
accounts of Surgeon Billing.- ; , Lieutenant
Uay and Captain Wheeler for mileage while
traveling abroad , which wore disallowed , be
referred to the court of claims. This the
second comptroller refused to do , leplying
that tlio claims weie definitely determined ,
that they were disallowed and the papers
tuincdo\er to the second auditor , and theio
the matter ended. Secretary Endicott then
stated that it the second comptroller would
not refer the claims to the court of claims for
ho himself would do it , to
' Jlr. Maynard replied just before
iavlng the comptroller's ofllco to go
ito that of the assistant secretary
t the treasury , and ho closes his
Htcr thus : "If the secretary ot war
as any doubt with refeicnco to tlio cor-
ectness of his own views upon any or all of
he abstract questions of the law propounded
ii his letter , the opinion of the court of claims
hercon might bo of value to him , but as this
ftlco has no doubt and so far as it can bo
earned this department has none with refer-

'eferenco ol these cases by another depart-

lartmcnt thereon. " The controveisy has

, vHo had never seen Mr. Cleveland before.

"The newspapers have published many
ridiculous stories about the state ot my
icalth , " replied Mr. Cleveland , "and they
lave biouglit to me a Hood ot letters and ail-
, 'Ico relating to sanitary matteis. You ought
.0 see the room lull of machines nnd health
appliances which have been sent to me. All
kinds ot suggestions about oxcrzlso and es
pecially reducing my llesh have been re
ceived , together with every conceivable ath

" 1 guess jou are able to cope with most
any kind ot a machine , " said Ilavorly , icfer-
rlng to political machines. " 1 hope you are ,
for I want to help you If you arc not. "
The president saw the point to the pun and
rctoited : "I presume 1 can handle them If I
want to. That's a question : Do 1 want to ? "
"I'm thinking ot buying n little homo
icre. " remarked llaverly , and am glad to
Jeain that you have done so much to help the
boom In real estate in Washington by your
purchase and support. "
The president made no reply and blushed ,
and Mr. Haverly was puzzled thereat. When
he related that part of the conversation with
the president and was told the president con
sidered his support of tlio re.il estate boom a
very delicate subject , owing to the Massachu
setts avenue scandal , the minstrel blushed
and expressed regret at his observation.
When asked if tin invited tlio picsldent to at
tend his show to-night , llaverly said , "No ; 1
Intended to when 1 went to see tlio piesldent ,
but after talking to him a little while J con
cluded it would bo in bad taste , as tills is

scruple about attending shows now. "

It is reported that the piesldent has been
persuaded to take Into .serious consideration
the advisability of appointing ex-Congress
man Bucknt'r , of Missouil , a successor to
United States Treasurer Jordan. It Is under
stood that such an appointment woul
tend to remove certain disagreeable -
able complications in democratic
politics in Missouri , and It is rcpicsented
it might at tlio same tlmo help
the piesident's prospects in that state. It is
represented that Uuckner is in hearty accord
with the administration In regard ta the sil
ver and currency questions. It Is probable
also that ho has modified his opinions some
what in regard to the oatsonal banking sys
tem , but his appointment as treasurer would
hardly bo regarded with favor by the friends
ot that spstem ,
