LONIION , Juno IS. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the IKI.J : I am enabled
to send you an rintlioil/.ed olllclal co | y if thu
crimes bill as it passed the committee. It
will undoubtedly pass the house as It now
reads , and of course the lords also soon
afterwards. Your readers must first bear in
mind that the llrst six sections , called hero
clauses , have alone been considered In com
mittee. The whole remaining sections have
been repotted by the operation of cloture to
the house for consideration on third read
ing without opportunity to amend In com
mittee of the whole. Of course certain
amendments may be now named , but with
the party In power there Is
less proclaimed , 'Iho district attorney gen
eral of Iteland may , if ho thinks lit , by an
order In writing , under his direct resident
magistrate , of whoso legal knowledge and
experience the lord chancellor shall be satis-
lied , hold Inquiry under this section , and
thereupon such resident magistrate may. If
ho so thinks fit. although no person may bo
charged before him with the commission of
such crime , sit at police court , when the
offense has been committed , in Dublin , or in
the place where the petty sessions for the
petty sessional district In which said offense
has been commuted are usually held , and ex
amine ono or the other concerning such
offense any person whom he has reason to
believe to bo a scope for them. The proba
bilities , thcief ore , are that all the now nn-
consldcred sections 7 to 20 will pass as
they now read that Is to say , In torty-ono
sittings , Ono hundred and tifty-thrce lines
have been passed by commons and 293 lines
! more have to be swallowed under cloturr , or ,
i as Americans term it , tlio previous question.

[ CopvrtoM ISSJby Jamu Qonlnn 7midt. ;
BHU.IN , Juno 18. [ New' York Horali
Cable Special to ttie BKK. ] No man couli
desire a greater tribute to his scientific repu
tatlon that Prof. Vlrchow recently obtained
not only in Germany , but in England am
America as well. Several very eminent mcd
leal authorities were of the opinion that enl ;
a very dangerous operation could save th
crown prince trom UeaOi by cancer. Uefor
using this operation the different specialist
agreed to submit the case to Vlrchow's decis
ion. Accordingly three small pieces wcr
cut from the diseased portions of the throat
each piece In a section not bigger than a pen
It may fairly bo said that Germany held it
breath while toe scientist looked through hi
microscope at the minute portions of royaltj
Fortho physiciansVirchovv wrote out tw
pases of reasons why the grow th In th
prince's throat was. harmless and not cancel
ous In its nature. Do far as 1 know thes
reasons are equally convincing to both th
cancerlte and antlcanccrlto physicians. J3i
the mass of Germans did not want to rea
the report of the great authority on cancer )
They simply related , "Virthow says It I
not a cancer , " than ran to cheer the crown
prince , perfectly convinced of security.
WHAT vtuciiovr JA\S.
1 said to 1'rof. Vlrchow that many Ger
man's In America would like to be assured
directly from him ot the prince's safety. Ho
permits me therefore to say to ) our German
readers that ho examined three pieces show-
lug a section of diseased portion of the
prince's throat. It proved to be a harmless
vvartllku growth , with nothing cancerous
about It and no suspicion of cancerous
growth near It. Cancer could not result
from such a growth nor was cancer
specially likely to occur near It. 1'achy-
( tcimla Vcrrulas , ho thought , a good
name for tlio growth. It grew as a
waity mass just where the voice formed. If
neglected It might Increase. Its llrst effect
was on the voice , but It Imn no effect on the
general health. Ho said ho hoped thu trouble
had been entirely cured without dostioylng
the voice forming muscles of thethioat , just
as a similar growth was removed from Pastor
Stoeckcr's the antl-semctie le.adci throat
without harming his voice. Such a growth ,
Vlrchow said , could not lead to strangulation ,
and so far as the larjnx was concerned the
crown prlnco might live 1,000 jears. Pri
vately Vlrchow told mo a large number of
persons suffer In the same way as the prince ,
many much more serious cabcs being known.

HKIIMN , Juno 18. The relchstag to-day
av ing disposed of all tlio business remain-
ng on the notice paper , Heir Van lloettlcher
ead an Imperial message closing the session.
The message expressed the irratef id apprc-
latlon with which the emperor nxaided
.ho labors and decisions of the relchstag ,
> vhereby the defense ot the umpire and Its
inanclhl position acquired that strength and
olldlty which were the primary conditions of
_ oace , as they were also ot the empire's
general development. When the reading
iv as concluded the members separated with
hreo cheers for ( lie emperor. A general re-
lew of the legislation effected and the posl-
Ion of the parties show the sticngth of the
government , reposing on the support of the
hreo leading groups In the relchstag , is
greater than ever. It has been proved dur-
nc the debates that the revenues arising
rom the spirit and sugar duties will more
han cover Increased army expenditures , the
pirit tax alone Increasing the treasury re
ceipts 1W,000,000 marks.
In sentencing the Iittlpslcprisoncis to-day ,
ho president of the court referred to the ob-
.ect of the patilotlc league as being plainly a
rcconquest of AIsac-Lorralne by an armed
orce. Involving a war of revenge ; therefore ,
persons becoming members shared tlio de
signs of the league , and if German subjects ,
were guilty of hi h treason. In taking a
nllder v low of the position of the accused ,
tlio prosecution desired to believe they wcro
inawareof the significance of their acts.
The mildness ot the sentences corresponded
with the tone ot the imperial procurator
throughout the trial.
The Helchsanzelger says the progress of
the emperor toward recovery Is slow but
noticeable. The language ot the announce
ment , though guarded , suggests that the time
has come when the emperor must pass away
forever from wtlyo public dutle * . llUnhy-
.c foi bid another Indiscretion llkn his
Kiel journey , and order that the emperer
henceforward undertake no duty that will
Involve any strain upon him or chance of ex
posure. _
Remarkable Speed.

The universities meet this demand by a

conduct a class each week for review or dis
cussion of the picvlous lectuie , and to correct
voluntary exercises written at the student's

private reading. This Involves laborious ,
painstaking work on the part ot both lecturer
and student. The university aupolutb an
