Special to the HKK.J A sensation was
caused In the lobbies of the Palais Bourbon
this afternoon by the rei > ort that Grovy dis
putes the accuracy ol an article In to day's

abroad which might result In his resignation ,
declared that ho was resolved to resign. I

"Absolutely , " was the leply.
"There's no possibility of your having mis
understood anything ! "
"None whatever. "
"Eh bii'ii ulors , It's clear some one Is lying.
I bog you to believe It is not I , What interest
nhoitld I have in doing so I" added Maret
after a pause. "I am not the president's
enemy. "
For the first time since the beginning ol
the crisis I noticed a number of suspicious
loafers prowling around the Quid do Orsn

had thu hang-dog mischievous look of pro

HiiiuiiTON , Nov. 31. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the HKI.1 : Don Juun do
Hourbon , father of Don Carlos , died hero
Friday last and the latter arrived Tuesday at
midnight in consequence , stopping at the
Clarendon Hotel with all his attendants and
suite. His personal friend and representa
tive In England , Earl Ashburncham , who Is
nlso nt the hotel , Is in charge of the papers
and effects of the dead father. Concurrently
with Don Carlos ui rival , statements are
made In some of the continental
and English newspapers that Don
Carlos through succeeding to his
father's claim to bo the rightful king of
'ranee would not impress himself and the
lourbon claim upon the existing crisis. Al-
hough in a period of mourning and grief ho
onsented for a few moments to see a Herald
oporter in the presence of Earl Ashburne-
am. Don Carlos gave a strong assurance
hat the rumor is perfectly grounded.
"Perhaps I can better explain his condition
11 relation to the subject , especially
vhilo the prince is so sad , "
uterposed the earl. "Hy the death
if the Ccinto do Cliambord Don .Tuun do
lourboti , that is Don Curios' father , became
he of the house of iJourbon and ,
.here-fore , by the Salic law the king Ac Jure
f France. Don Juim never , however , made
ny claim to this title , being a man of pecu-
iarly simple and retiring habits. Many years
ircviously ho had also abdicated his claim to
he throne of Spain in favor of his son , Don
'nrlos. ' Now Don Carlos considers himself ,
ibovo all things , a Spaniard in virtue , not
jnly of the Spanish blood which runs
n his own veins , but also ol
ill the Sp.inish blood whiohwas | shed for him
by his faithful subjects during the warol
s72. Ho has consequently , although of
ourso cognisant of his legitimate rights ,
irotmhly no intention of advancing unj
claim to the throne of Franco. "
Hut , " I said , "should bo refrain Trom
'nuking ' such claim will not the fact of his
.bus holding his hand , so to speak , tell uiV
tersely on any claim bis heirs may think
necessary to prefer ! "
'Don ' Carlos does not think so. Such is
iissuredly not his desire. Perhaps later t
categorical declaration will bo made on this
subject by Don Carlos , since ho has now
> ecomo , by the death of his father , the heail
of the house of Hourbon , as well as the legiti
nalo king of Spain , which ho was already bj
ils father's abdication. Hut the fact of hi ;
lot seeking to press his claim to the ciown o
France will not in any way prejudice uni
claim his heirs or successors may feel callei
ipon to make in this direction. "
To all of this Don C.irlos thoroughly as
Considering the painful circumstances eDen
Don Carlos' presence nt Brighton I did no
feel it necessary to further question him , bu
n private I asked Earl Ashburncham
' 'What Don Carlos'
are prospective move
incuts ! " '
"That is a diftlciilt question to answer , '
said Lord Ashburneham with a smile , "Hi
has just returned from a protracted sojoun
in South America. Ho came to Hriglitoi
from Venice yesterday. It is uncertain hov
loner bo will stay here. "
The conversation led to the father's death
"Ho died of heart disease , very suddenly , '
said Ashburncham. "Ho was sixty-thrc
years of age. Ho was a singu
Iarly retiring , unostentatious man
For all kinds of pomp no showed ho had i
natural dislike and was entirely devoid of an ;
political ambition. The funeral , which take
place to-morrow morning at the Church o
the Sacred Heart , will bo of an cntirel
private character and no invitations at
issued. The body is to bo kept in Urightor
but will in all probability bo removed t
Trieste , the burial place of the Spanis
branch of the Hourbou family ever sine
they were driven Into exile. "
Then , speaking for himself , Lord Ashburm
ham remarked that there appeared to n get
oral impression in Europe and America the
there were no other claimants to the thron
of France exceut Don Carlos and the Comt
do Paris , whereas , as a matter of fuel , tli
Alfonist branch of the house of Spain and tli
prince of the aranehof Naples and Palmn at
all nearer in the Icgimuto succession than tli
Orleans branch , the latter descending froi
Louis XIII wile the former descend froi
Louis XIV. "
In the invited Lord Ashbiirneham to giv
me for publication the opinions of Don Carle
in reference to the critical position of affah
in Paris.
"Thero is so littl" to say on this point ,
ho replied. "Since the death of the Coml
do Cliambord Don Carlos bus fo
quite disinterested. Ho has ceased I
take any special interest in Krone
politics. He , however , wishes well to th
country for which ho has a.sincere affection.
After this it was , jx-rhaps , hardly roasonab'
to expect an answer to the question , "Doi
he think the republic is drifting into serioi
peril ! " and indeed no further answer wr
"My own opinion , " said Lord Ashburn
ham , "is that Don Carlos is by no means an
mated by any sentiments of hostility to tl
French republic. "

Francis Connelly , aged twenty-seven ycai
was on summary trial. "Charge Using sedi

constables , who were In plain clothes there
pave testimony that the prisoner's words
were these : "I intend to go down to the

The counsel for the accused admitted the
language but pleaded to have the case sent tea
a jury nntf not summarily disposed
of , so that the legal question might bo
raised. "Are such words , unaccompanied by

Smith has resigned the presidency of tin
Oregon Trancontinental company and Sid
ney Dillon has been chosen as his succes
sor. It has been known for some time thai
radical changes in the management of tht
Oregon companies were about to bo made
and the return of Henry Villurd to contra
of the Northern Pacific at the recent electioi
was merely a prelude to his further rcstoru
tion. H has been supposed that Mr. Villarr
would take the presidency of the Oregon A
Transcontinental , us ho might have taker
that of the Northern Pacific. His agreement
with his/.ulin friends was modified so that lu
could oecomo a director of the Northern Pa
cilic and possibly it might have beer
stretched to enable him to bo ii
nnnio as well ns in fact n controllint
power. The fact that Dillon and not Villari :
succeeds Elijah Smith in the presidency ol
the principal Oregon company will bo a snr
prise to Wall street. The change will nol
take place until December 1 , but it was agrcei

ho knew that the change had been made
"There cannot be two presidents of ono com

Parsons , who remembered the diftlcul

pressed the opinion that Dillon had beet
made president of the Oregon Trans

intimuto friend of Mr. Carlisle , from whom
the following Information was received , says
the object of the conference will bo to secure
an expression of Mr. Handall's views
upon the subject of tariff reduction in the
Fiftieth congress. The conference will bo
strictly private. There will bo no one pres
ent but thu two gentlemen in question. If
Mr. Handull will meet the low tariff demo
crats half-way some compromise measure maybe
bo agreed upon and passed this winter.
Should ho refuse and manifest u dlsK ] > sition
to pursue his past obstruction policy then Mr.
Carlisle's friends say Mr. Uandall must look
out for himself.
When the Hr.u representative Inquired
what was meant by this declaration ho was
told that it meant that Mr. Handall would bo
regarded by the tariff reformers precisely as
a republican protectionist would be. with all
that the term Implies. When asked If it
meant the removal of Mr. Hundall from the
chairmanship of the appropriation committee ,
the reply was that that mutter would bo
further considered after Mr. Kandall had
stated his iiltimation. Hy inference , however ,
the UKI : correspondent was led to beliovetbat
anything short of a liberal spirit of dealing
with the tariff question would result in Mr.
Handall's removal from his present position ,
and his assignment to one of much less dig
nity and power.
Morrison Has the Mopes.
WASHINGTON' , Nov. 24. [ Special Telegram
to the Bun. ] One of the saddest men In the
city to-day is Inter-State Commerce Commis
sioner Morrison. Ho seems to wander
around his hotel us if lost und unxious for a
time to make a spurt and pass over a year or
two. One of t'no things that makes him par
ticularly snd is the increasing talk of some
tariff reform bill passing congress this ses
sion. It is a well known fact that Morrison
is not satisfied with his position on the com
mission anil hutcs to think of himself us
being shelved when congress is ubout to
enter upon a most lively time. It is aggra
vating , to say the least , for him to think ,
after all his troubles and worry over a tariff
bill , to flnd just at this time that ho is out in
the cold ; that some reduction is likely to bo
made , or , at least , democrats so think.
Hut Morrison for the last few weeks
has been busying himself ubout tlio depart
ments. Ho has been at the postofllco depart
ments as of old , looking after appointments
and seeing that things are being kept straight
under a view of helping himself when the
time comes. Although his friends deny that
ho thinks of resigning his present position ,
yet there arc many who state positively that
Morrison at the next congressional election
Will run for congress from his old district.
Everything is being worked to that end. His
fences are being repaired , and ho expects to
enter the battle with renewed vigor. There
arc many hero who pity Morrison in his pres
ent position , and as ho sniffs the coming bat
tle from afar he cannot but feel restless rtnd
anxious. It will be still harder for him to go
to the capital this winter and hear the fiery
debates on the floor of the house und not be
able to rush down the aisle und gain the eye
of the speaker and take once more his posi
tion ns leader of one of the democratic rings ,
Therefore it is no wonder that Morrison
wants time to hurry up.
