LONDON , May 14. [ New York Her
ald Cable-Special to the Hni.l : In consid
ering the present position of affairs ono ele
ment of a personal nature concerning mem
bers cannot bo omitted. It Is the air of gen
eral weariness and fatigue over the entue
house owing to the Incessant strain placed
upon all sections and parties since the open
ing of the session. Twice this week mem
bers bavegone homo by daylight after sitting
from twelve to fourteen hours. The result is
that everything Is jaded In mind and body.
In ordinary sessions members get occasional
nights ntf without difficulty , but this jcat
calls arc Issued dally detailing constant at
tendance even during the dinner hour no
rest , no hohdaj.s for anybody. The Irish
members generally have no other
business requiring attention and thus are
able to devote their whole time to parlia
mentary work , lint a largo proportion of
the house consists of mercantile men or
lawjers , who are llttlo lilted for their dally
duties by sitting up till 2 or 3 every morning.
The consequences begin to bo been In the In
creasing difficulty of the whips on both
sides to hav Ing men down to the house. The
Uladstonlans attend in smaller numbers
every week and the liberal-unionists are also
dropping off. The ministerialists manage to
keep a majority , Thursday night they sunk
twcntj-twoln ono division , the lowest jet
recorded this session. No such unremitting
work was over exacted from parliament be
fore over so long a period , with no prospect
of relief , for as fast as the amendments to
the crimes bill are wiped off at ono end
anothei series are tacked on at the other.
TIIK ONLY SUItB ItKUBF.
It Is therefore difficult for any man to see
when or how the bill can bo carried unless
by a resort to contrivances not usual In
Kngllsh 'legislation. The eloturo does not
answer the expectations ot Its chief pro
moters. The. only way of evading It Is by
multlpl ) Ing the amendorente , each rerjulr-
Ine , in common decency , reasonable ) time
for discussion. Unless recourse can bo had
to an expedient sometimes adopted In con
gress naming a given day for reporting the
bill and demanding Its third reading all
summer must piss without materially ad
vancing It. A proposition to this effect , it
Is said , has been under consideration by the
government , but nothing has yet been posi
tively decided to any exceptional coup.
There will bo a strenuous opposition , led by
Gladstone , who Is keeping watch over the
general tactics of the opposition.
TIIK aOVEHNMKST 11 VNKS UViinOKKV.
It cannot , however , bo denied that
the ministerial majority remains un
broken , Bright goliu Into the lobby
with them early every night. There
nro no signs ot a split among the
liberal unionists In any ( [ muter. The bill
will undoubtedly be passed. The only ques
tion U when and by what means.
VVOIIK OK TIIK IIUSII MKMIIKRS.
The mal'i brunt of the opposition thus far
has fallen on Sim lloaly , who sits hour after
hour , undaunted by continual defeats , every
ready with a fresh ciop of amendmentsand ,
objections , making twenty or thirty speeches
every night , as If It all weio
child's play. The other Irish leaders
are In the back ground during the discussion ,
calling chlclly for subtlllty. 1'arnoll has not
once appeared. Dillon is also absent Dexton
and McCarthy are here , but rarely Interfere.
The committee work Is Imiassing and tedi
ous to the last decree , but Healy sticks to it
without flinching. The rank and lilo cf the
1'ainellites can dollttlo muro than vote when

Meanwhile the public outside regards with
Impatiencetlioso prgtracted pioceedlugs , ,
and another session Is slipping and no legis
lation affecting the Inteiests ot the general
community Is oven attempted. This cannot
but cause great disappointment , and must
end ultimately to the Injury of the conserva
tive party , although the ministers are power
less , under thu present circumstances , to help
themselves. The country has been promised
ceitaln dellulto things. If It docs not get
them there wll ! bo bitter complaints.
.Still , the belief that Iieland is
In a dangerous state leads the people
ple generally to acquiesce In the suspen
sion of ordinary legislative business and
prevents according to my belief , any
substantial growth of Gladstone's Mrongth.
From my own experience In v artous parts of
the country 1 judge that the determination
not to content to anything resembling Glad
stone's scheme increasesiatherthaiideclines.
This , 1 am aware.Is not Gladstone's own
view , but last year he fully believed the coun
try ready to support lilm. The bulk of the
worklngmen take the stand on the maln-
talncnce of the union and will not
budge an Inch from that. This
determination must bo recognized or
any future fclunie for giving lioland
homo rule will Inevitably bo fchlpvvrcaked.
Kvcn In Scotland , good authorities declare
that the unionist feeling Is making great
headway. Chamberlain's speediest produced -
duced considerable eltect and ho has returned
with renewed confidence In his cause. Ev

A MATTKH OK UNC-KIIT UNTV.
All this milter Is of some uncertainty till
the next election , which cannot bo brouaht
about for some time. The unionists will not
consent to plunge the country In the excite
ment and expense of another dissolution. 1
do not HO how the Government can be beaten
on any material question. Churchill , though
piwscd on the retrenchment principle , has
lonllally supported It when threatened by

o'clock in the afternoon the tramp of in

constantly In one's cars. On busy Frlederlck
strasso are found companies of Infantry fol

TIIK KAISKU'S MILITARY lIllhAhKAST.
Nearly every day of the week the young
emperor spent the moinlng reviewing the
troops , either heie or In Potsdam. Last
week ho began the service by breakfasting
at Potsdam with the officers of his regiment
as guests with true German sjmpathy. A
big cake , covered with ninety small lighted
candles , was brought on after breakfast to
commemorate the age of the emperor ,
who personally commands this regi
ment. This pleased the emperor so
that ho said the officers must also
have some remembrance ot the dav , so
ho himself cut the cake and gave each officer ,
with his on hand , a piece of the cake and a
lighted candle. Then , that all might smoke ,
the kaiser lighted a cigarette and a smoking
parliament began Us session.
Some what later the llttlo five-year-old
future emperor , the son of the crown prince's
son , In the palace opposite , also had his
birthday cake with fine candles upon it and
got with it his first suit of .unlfoim , thus
beating his great grandfather by ono > ear in
beglutng his army service.
AT THE I'AIIAUK OI1OU.ND9.
All through the week crowds regularly
waited to theer the emrmror as ho passed on
his way to the parade giound. Wednesday ,
In splto of the raw day , Ids simple low horse
carriage passed as usual , followed by several
gorgeous court four-in-hand equipages.
Once on the parade giound , the emperor
cries "Good morning" to the retrl-
ments , which answer with n co
lossal "Good morning , your ma
jesty. " Then , by skiltul dilving , the em
pcror keeps a position to see the whole H

watching the terribly rapid Hi o of the nov

this feeling is shown In a letter beginning
"Dear Mi. Kmpcror , " which the mall re

plained that the father of an old soldio
lamed in the Austrian war was now helpless
so that he , w 1th four sisters and brothers

OONK INTO SUVIMKIt ( JUAIITKItS.
Spring weather , though not too warm yet ,
has already had Its ellect , and noted people
have begun to go into summer residences.
The Kaiser stilt stays here , but later goes to
Kins. Gastlen U said this > ear to be forbid

alrcad ) In his uiu.il summer quarters at Hots-
dam , and Count You Moltko went Tuesday
to his Kolstn estate. Count IHsmark goes to
Ireland to see Lord Lonponderry.
Prince Hlsunrck also soon leaves Berlin for
his estates. The lattei , by the way , has boon

craphcd as a preparation for a raid on
GO Y MUWSPArEH STOIHKS.
Socoudly , the spring weather has broiisht
an Increase of heated comments by the Ger
man papers on their French rivals. Almost
every issue tb.il week Uie Berlin papers con
tained some story of French or Uusslan at
tack on Germans ; from Paris Is given a
thrilling account of Germans attacked on
the streets : from Uelport colno stories of
Germans arrested as spies , or attacked by
crowds of angry Frenchmen ; Irom the
Moscow Garotte is clipped a funny
article describing b-xttallons of carrier
pigeons anil regiments of dogs which
Germany Is training for a inarch
on Paris. Even , according to this comic
Muscovite , Germany proposes to establish a
regular canine school that every do * In Gei
many may bo trained to snarl for the father
land. All of which serves to slowly Irritate
Germans , more especially those who notice
thecontlnuil cry of the Prussians , which Is
used In Fiance as a term of reproach Instead
of the desired names ot the Germ-in. As yet
these articles lead to no threats from German
papers , though ono lntlttentl.il paper suggests ,
with a malicious chuckle , that Franca had
better stop squinting toward Alsace-Lorraine
and watch Its own border very closely.
As a natuia ! result of tha hrltatlon against
Franco comes the nowsot a more stronger
enforcement of the laws In Uclchsland , the
civII officers being replaced by those of tried
fidelity. Persons w ho sneak French , or edu
cate their children In Fiance , manufacturers
or ilch land owners with houses In pans , all
are under suspicion and subject to Instant
expulsion , It caught In any suspicious act.
Quite a sensation was created momentarily
by a statement In the Alsace journal that sev
eral great factories owned by French
men have their work people trained and al
lotted Into companies so as to go over bodily
to the Invading French army. Although
probably a He , the story seems to show still
some of the heated feelingalong the frontier.

with Germany , and that the entente cordlalo
with Piluce Ulsmarck , has renewed despite

regarding the occupation of liosuia. This
statementconllicls with the- feeling In Uei-
lln official circles , and Is interpreted as in
dicating a dread of further revelations of
now Intrigue on the part of Russia , who , It
Is alleged , Is trying to Induce Austria to
abandon a German alliance. The origin ot
the recent disclosure Is now known to be the
discovery by Prince Uismuck that Uussla
was making approaches toi another seciet
treaty with Austria , with thu object of de
taching her from German ) . The iilsclosmes
have cUccted its purpose of frustrating the

Two Railroad Companies Secure a

aging piece of now that has been given the
public In this city for a long time Is the posi
tive announcement today that the Chicago it
Northwestern HIK ! Chlcairo , St , Paul , Minne
apolis A ; Omaha railroad companies had en
tered Into an agreement with our local bridge
compaiivto take the charter held by it and
commence the building of a bridge across the
Missouri river at once. Prcnaratlons had al
ready been made for v oting 8300,000 tax by the
city to assist an eastern corporation In erect
ing the bridge , but the present arrangement Is
eminently more satisfactory all around. As
a result the day has boon a most exciting and
active ono In real estate and business circles.
Much property has changed hands and It Is
nonlidentlv believed that the greatest boom
it the noithwest will begin next week. The
railway companies now agree to accept the
charter of the Sioux City Bridge company ,
refund all money expended in preliminary
suiveys , adopt the line and profiles of the
bridge company and use the bridge com
ma's engineer , Mi , Morrison , in the con
structions ot the btidgo under the name of
the .Sioux City Bridge company ; that
lie bildgo shall bo open to the
isc of all companies upon reasonable
compensation : that the work shall
login as soon as thu secretary of war shall
apnrovo the plan and as soon as the old
iridgo company can turn over the stock and
franchise , which they ngreo on their part to
lo. It is now certain that the union depot

'ho absolutely unanswerable strength of our

oughly secured that the Canadian people re-
eognUo that a case has been in.ulo which
nnst be answered. Not a single ono of
Lord Lansdowne's champions In the press

plied them with his version of the transac-

neither of which will bear the light of robusi
uibllc criticism for a moment. The tact la
that as governor general Lord Lnnsdowne It
sublimated above all cilticlsm from peopla
hvhom ho rules and who pay him. This Iti a
Joctrino so antipathetic to Uritish constitu
tional law that 1 can scarcely imagine how
any person instructed In the rudiments of
English constitutional history can for a mo
ment uroponnil It. Lansdowne'n other plea
is a still more vvasliv one , namely , that his
mouth Is closed aealnst defense , His own
action and that of his agent utterly confute

"Well , I shall certainly exercise my legal
