LONDON" , May 21. [ Xevv York Herald
Cable Special to Iho DKK. ] Although
Ihls is Iho queen's birthday and the com
mons Is at fever heat againand the names of
the sovereign and many statesmen are In all
mouths , Dulfnlo Dill remains the most talked
nbout mnn of the hour. Si. Stephen's Ito
view presents n cnrloon paraphrasing his
dhow. Salisbury Is driving an attacked
coach , Inside of which Is Cross Manning ,
Bersford on top , and Smltn and Dalfour all
presenllng revolvers. Gladstone , as lied
bhlrt. with Harcourt and a Inrgo numherof
liberals whose faces nro easily dlstlngulshn-
blo through the paint and feathers ,
are of the pnrty of attacking
bravo * , whllo Harcourt n the captain
of the cowboys , Is Icadltu lovvard Iho rescue
of his follows in hunllng shirts composed of
unionists , in the van of whom Is Joe Cham
berlain. Moonshine nlso piosents n cartoo
Ills In eleven sketches of Dutfalo Dill , clth ( =
In his tent , or plaiillng Ihu stars nnd stripes
on Iho lop of St. Paul's , or dining nt Marlboro
bore house , or In the gallery of the commons ,
etc. All Ihe city and piovincial newspapers
dally teem with stories about him and inter
views ,
( It Is roservcd for your correspondent to
question him on nn omitted topic his ideas
about England nnd the English. Ho repudl-
nttd the ttllo now nllllerallvely given Iho
American exhibition as Dutfalo Dill's Ba/aar
when I found him to-day in Iho ccnler of the
Indian camp within Ihe Imposing square-
built tent , with a lingo bulfnlo head over the
canvas , whose Internal fillings and comforts
can not huit prldo * by comparison to many u
drawing-room or boudoir.
"Yes , I like London and the English.
Why not ? I have been splendidly treated
here , nnd not ns n showman , but ns n gentle
man and soldier. I went about everywhere
before wo opened hero from the house of
lords downwards , nnd spent several hours
during Iho debalo In Iho commons. I think
the taller very like our congress. It seems tome
mo to have the same little wrangcls
and alspulcs. I was greally im
pressed with the eloquence of Gladstone ,
Churchill and Sexton , who nro grand
debaters. I spout some tlmo visiting llio
theatres , nnd must confess they are far ahead
of American theatres in the details of stage
managements. In America things nro done
qtiickly , tlmo not being tnken to smooth
everything and put thotn in mossalc , as It
were , as In England. English audiences
seem very appreciative nna kind. I would
like to say , ihough , that no man , not even a
brother , could have donu'moro for strangers
nnd his business than that greatest of great
actors , Henry Irving , has done for me.
"What do I think of Ihe queen ? What
could 1 think ? She was so lovely to us , just
llkoagood natured mother , not fonnal In
any way. She asked us many questions
about our early frontier life. In which she
teemed girlishly Interested. She expressed
warm pleasure to mo and promised to pay ns
another visit"
"You have scon the adverse criticisms of
Rome newspapers nbout j our show. What do
you think of these ? "
"Well , In Iho first place , this Is not a show ,
but an American exhibition of frontier life ,
which Is the reason why so many educated
English come. As to the so-called trained
bucking horse which some papers talk
nbout , I am qulto willing for nny one ,
even hu//ars or dragoons , to come at
nny time and Iry llio animals. A few days
agon parly of hard-riding ind across country
frehtlemcn came and expressed n desire lo Iry
those horses. I offered to nllow them to ride
during our exhibition , but they preferred ex
perimenting privately , lo which I consented.
It wns rare fun , for they were not on the
horses' backs for n second and came to a
different conclusion nbout the horses being
trained , A number ot the aristocracy have
ridden In the Deadwood coach during the
Indian attack. The first lady to venture was ,
; however.Miss 1'aset , of Charles Wlndham'a
i- companj. "
"Do you receive many Invitations to
luncheons , dinners nnd receptions ? "
"Innumerable. In fact" putting his
hand in his pocket " ! am obliged to keep
this diary to refresh my memory. " He then
read mo a long list fiom the diary that would
make ninny would-bo fashionables wild with
delight. 1 saw his Sunday engagements In
cluded luncheon with Madame Nevada , dln-
nei with Lady Mnndovtile , and supper with
n party of gentlemen friends and a few
M. IVs.
"My list , jou see , " said Mr. Cody , smiling
as ho eloped his book , "Includes grand balls ,
receptions , parties and dinners. Indeed , a
number of ft lend * are talking .of starling a
DulTnlo Dill's cloven o'clock simper , so my
tune has been , with business and pleasure ,
fully occupied from morning to nl ht. "
"What difference , Kan } , do jou find be
tween j our audiences nt Madison Square and
with the Enzllsh ? "
' They nro nhout the samo. Thny appreci
ate and applaud almost the same points , ex
cept , perhnps the English , who nil have great
lo\o for athletics , take more kindly to our
horse racing and shooting. Dy the way , as
nn Instance ot Englishmen's IQYO for horse
racing , there Is hardly a night but some at-
| , t tcndant reporls lo me bavin * overheard gen-
* l tlemen nuking bets , sometimes heavy ones ,
V * on their fanc > horse 01 ndur , when our races
' * commence. "
"Aro jou going to sco the English Derby
f next \Vedncsdaj ? "
, "I would very much like to , but business
, must bo attended to. Desldes , that day Is
, - ' our fashionable , full prlco day. Of course ,
\ t my Impressions nbout the Kiullsh people are
jet slight and not of a largo variety. "
As I left him there awaited outside a score
ot favored gentlemen and ladles expecting
Introductions.Vhtther \ the American exhi
bition accomplishes an Inculcation In the
EmlIsliXf ; ) respect for lr.ins-Atlanilc Inven
tion , art , science * fabrics , etc. , or the oppo

The addiess closes by su gc-stlnij that every

of a bureau of record where any and all
workmen may put themselves on record as
assenting to the Chlcaeo oxcngc's principles of
Individual liberty , and by andthrough which
such men be Kept at work and protected.
After a certain time stops should bo taken to

O. W. Mink. His testimony wns wholly to
the system of bookkeeping In use by the cor-
poinlion nnd Ihe methods 'of keeping the
vnrious accounts. The question of allow
ances In determining the net earnings under
the Thurman act for mileage was gone into
horoughly , and President Adams , in behalf
of Mink , detailed the policy of the company
n relation lo Iho samo. The amount re
ceived from the branch lines at Omaha
iinder the constructive mllengo rule could
not be accurately ascertained , but Mink
bought It was n large sum. In response tea
a query fiom Littler , crowing out ot a sug
gestion by Adams the latci stated that the
company would willingly pay 8500,000 per
annum more to the government than it Is
pajlngnovv.llf It could bo relieved of the

had been actively connected with railroads
tor twenty years , and had not seen n
day when thai wns not recognized

say thai Iho road which picked nn business

have an allowance made to It a constructive
allowance and ho deemed It to bo light. The
