Cubic-Special to tlio Hii : : . ] The iiutloual
congress held to-day In the palace at Vcr-
rallh > s proves Unit Franco is herself again
nnil following In tlio footsteps of the Ameri
can republic. It also proves tlmt the French
republic Is no longer hi swaddling clothes ,
but has attained her majority. The elec
tion of Sadl Cut not Is the outcome of the
sound common sense anil patriotism of French
republicans and not the victory of any
faction of parliament or any particular politi
cal faction. It la a Jinn and deliberate resolve -
solve to maintain and accentuate the dig
nity and strength of the llrst magistrate of
the nation. The scene lit the famous Hotel
dcs Reservoir was highly picturesque at
nboutnoon , the dining room being tilled with
over a hundred of the most distinguished
public men of Fancc. Tlio waiters wcro un-
nblo to servo them , and senators , deputies
nnd journalists nil rushed about In the
utmost confusion , ovcrbody helping
himself. Leroycr , president of the
KCimtc , was been drawing the cork of
a bottle of Burgundy , Clomenccau vainly
seeking for forks and spoons and Jules Perry
grasping fr.intlcnlly at a dish of lobster
salad. Frcycinet was breakfasting in a cor
ner with Goblet and Douville. Muillefeu ,
the comic radical deputy nnd dagucrre , the
fierce young radical , came in during break
fast. Frcycinet , who had been eating
scrambled eggs and mushrooms , looked up
nnd said : "This is what wo have got to do.
\Vo must vote for anybody but Furry , for
Ferry means civil war. Ferry
will retire and uiuli tliia more easy for him.
I nm willing to retire from the candidature.
Also , let us all unite and vote for Sadl-Car
not. "
"No , don't retire , " exclaimed the young
radical , "wo can all unitoon yourself. "
Freyclnet's face , whiter than his hair ,
Blightly increased with a knowing flush.
In another corner was Sndl-C'arnot helping
himself to bunches of grapes and duchcsso
pears. Gallic and Parisian gaiety ( lowed
unceasingly in spite of the cold ,
boggy weather , that would have
clone Justice to the city of London.
Hut towards 2 o'clock all this apparent levity
ceabcd and everybody walked slowly toward
the congress hall , passing through the gate
into tlio magnificent square dedicated to all
the glories of France , walking beneath the
broiuo equestrian statue of Louis Quatorz.
The statue and streets were lined with de
tachments of infantry of the Eleventh anil
Twelfth raglmcnts , artillery , and the First
regiment of engineers. At 'J o'clock the vast
hall in the palaeo was tilled to overflowing ,
It is an oblong square , decorated with aubus
son tnucstry and a largo picture of the first
assembly of the states.
In nn adjoining logo sat , calm and sphinx
like , Mr. Blaine , who watched all the pro
ceedings with lynx-eyed attention. At live
minutes past 2 M. lo Hoycr , president of th <
senate and ex-ofllclo president of the congress
gross , mounted slowly the steps of the im
posing presidential ill.ii , rang the bcl
nnd silence at once ensued ns i
by magic. Lo Iloycr read , ivUltcr in
distinctly , it verso of constitutiona
law concerning the way preseiibed to 1111 i
vacancy in the presidency and declared tin
national assembly duly constituted. This be
{ pin I glanced at Mr. Blulno and noticed tha
ho rose , took off his overcoat and settled hin
Belt down for a long session. . Then LeRoye
put his hand into a largo green urn tilled will
the names of senators and deputies ant
pulled out ten at random. These
wcro the vote revisions. By a singu
la1- irony of fate , the names of M
Albert Grcvy , tlmox-prr-sldcnt'sbrothor , am
M. Charles Ftrry , brother of Jules Ferr\
wcro pulled out. This incident caused con

voted was named Papinot , then the other
followed. This process lasted nn hour , cue !
voter stepping up to the tribune where i
' little uuirhlo was handed him from i
basket. Then the voter puts a card wit
the name of the person voted for on i !
into the largo green urn. Then , a few step
further , he drops a HUle marblu Into nnothc
large green urn labelled "control. " Thcs
marbles being counted afterward are a choc
on the voters. TJ.o Jlrst tour resulted In 30
for Sadl-Curnot , 213 for Ferry , 145 fo
Sausslcr , and nnalnslgnlflcnut scattering fc
Frcycinet , Appcit , Brlsson , Pasteur an
others. As no ono secure. . ! tha required m :
Jorlty a recess was taken 'till 3 o'clock , durin
which Ferry stood In the midst of the grou
nnd declared : "I am perfectly willing t
withdraw my candidature. It is on the who !
the best thing for Franco , for 1 never wls
to have it on iny conscience that I should i
uiylhlns likely to plunge France Into civ
trar or to cause bloodshed ! n Paris. 1 eat it ;
that all my political friends will not vote for
me , but transfer their votes to Sadl-Curnot.
Wo ought , till of us , to sink our petty jeal
ousies , and become simply Frenchmen. "
Freycinot then stepped up , and briefly
shook hands with Ferry. The result was
loud cheers and remarks. "Bravo , Ferry I
Brnro , Frcycinet 1" resounded on all sides.
Then It became certain that Sadl Carnet
would be elected president of the republic.
Congress then resumed Its session , and the
voting continued ns before , the result of the
second voting being Sadl Carnet 01(1 ( , General
Saus&lor IbS , Ferry 11 , Freyclnct 5 , Felix
Pyatt 10. The result was announced by
Croycr at ten minutes' before 7. Then , after
loud cheers , everybody went back to Paris.
Hlalnc , as ho watched this incident , seemed
to get excited. Ho moved about in. his chair
and it must have reminded him of an anal
ogous incident when ho was before the coun
try as Ferry was to-day , the country deciding
It best ho should be nominated and going be
fore the nominating body with a strength
that seemed to make it likely that his ambi
tions would bo gratified at the expense of the
good of his country. Bliilne saw too the French
causing trouble at home and complications
abroad , should the political scheme be car
ried through. Blaliio s.iw , too , Ferry retire
as Blnlne was forced to , and the unexpected
happen in the selection of a mnu whoso
btrength was apparently Inferior to his" . In
fact that the nation preferred Doace and him
In preference to the political favorite who
would Imperil the country. Although Bluino
did not go up to Ferry to congratulate him as
hundreds did , he might have gone nnd sym
pathized with him saying , "My dear boy , I
know how It Is myself. "

PA ins ( via Havre ) , Dec. 3. [ New York
Herald Cable Special to the Bin. : ] An
other great day for Franco and for the re
public. At the second tcour vote In congress
at Versailles , M. Lo Iloycr , speaker , an
nounced the result that Sadi-Curnot had
been elected president by 010 out of a total of
843 votes. At n quarter to 7 this evening all
the deputies of the extreme left , left and cen
ter all , In fact , except the reactionaries
stood up and greeted the announcement with
tremendous cheers and clapping of hands ,
do/ens deputies shouting , "Vivo la Carnet 1"
"Vivo laltcpubliijuc ! " two or three shout
ing , "Vivo In Victolrcl" alluding to Carnet
as the gandson of the gieat organizer of vic
tory. Among those who applauded the most
vigorously wcro Floquct and Frcycinet.
Sadl-Carnot , a tall , lithe , wiry-looking man ,
with a dark olive complexion , nnd , in spite of
near-sightedness , black , piercing eyes ,
had retired from the congress
half an hour before the votes were
counted. He got into a brougham drawn by
two flrey bay horses and with Ror.yier mid
General Ferron drove back to Paris , where
the Elysce was illuminated. The president
arrived at the presidential mansion at 10
o'clock in the evening , the soldiers presented
arms , and was received at the steps by Gen
eral Brugcro and the officers of the presi
dent's military household. Palis to-night is
perfectly quiet , everybody drawing breaths.
There is great satisfaction that the imme
diate danger of revolt , anarchy and civil war ,
for the moment at least , Is avoided.
STiiuuT scr.xcs.
People generally predicted trouble in the
streets during the day. Early in the after
noon an American gentleman driving on the
Champs Elyhco stopped to admire the Palais
do I1 Industrc. Ho noticed some ambulances
being wheeled in and caught sight of soldiers
"What docs it mean ! " ho asked a man in a
blouse. "I thought this was where they held
the Pat is salon and fairs and exhibitions. "
The man in the blouse grunted : "They
are filling the largo court with ambulances
for the wounded in case of n riot. "
This looked omlnou's. They were getting
ready to put the rioters into ambulances on
the boulevard. Thcro was that particular
hurry and activity and universal buof con
versation as of something exciting In the air.
It was a political electric current running
strong. Groups collected at every convenient
point , and if two men chanced to look hur
riedly down tlio street a hun
dred calhcrcd to see. what they
1 | wcro loo.Ing at. Men earnestly ami
f emphatically , sometimes angry , advocated on
street corners ono or the other of the candi
dates. Coachmen of public vehicles forget
to book fares in order to discuss the
situation , or drive down the boulevards slug'
Ing political ditties.
At tlio gnro St. Lozarc , when the trains
from Versailles arrived , largo crowds col
lected awaiting news or prominent arrival ? ,
Every street approaching the station was
guarded nt intervals by cordons ol
republican guards. A rope was
stretched across the street to prevent
Ingress to nil except those
il business. A Herald correspondent pressee
through the military lines found bodies o :
cuirassiers' horses picketed , icady foi
trompcnsc , reminding Americans of tin
sccno around Madison square In the carlj
part of the war during the exciting days o :
the riots. General Saussiere , governor o.
Paris , had done ills work well to in sun
peace. St. Luzaro was Impregnable. Al
the steps Inside the station wcro lined will
gcnd'arincs , nnd every person mounting tin
steps was scrutinized vigilantly. Ncverthe
less , n largo and much excited crowd wai
waiting hour after hour the return of thi
On the Boulevard des Vitllcn , as the elaj
wore away the excitement Increased visibly
The evening newspapers , with the latcs
news , wcro almost torn front the hands o
venders mid the kiosques wcro virtually In ;
state of siege. The woid Ferry was 01
every tongue , At the rumor that ho wa
elected or likely to be the blouses began i
Irok ugly. "A baa Ferry" was constant ) ,
HIIRO crowds waited outside the FJgarc
' , clamoring for bulletins. Kdltio
after edition was UsuoJ.
At 2 o'clock the name of Sadl-Cnrnol Vega
to circulate and the air was filled with th' '
loud roar of a thousand newsboys shouting ,
"Le president do lit Rcpubllque. "
At the Hotel do Vlllo crowds In the mean
time had assembled in expectation of a
disturbance. Louise Michel and Derouledc
were expected. It was said that Ferry had
been elected , but Cnrnot's election utterly
snuffed them out. The older nnd noisier
tones of the young New York rowdy
striplings who ste l barrels on election night
and run when cia ed by the police became
noisy young roughs in Paris , who arc aboard
and howling in all times of public excite
ment , for ugly rushes were made by them
near the St. La/arc to-night , resulting in
many lost canes and halsbut the gcnd'arincs
speedily put them to flight.
As dusk tict in the crowds rapidly dls- .
pcrscd. True Frenchmen love dinner even
In revolutionary times. Politics must give
way always to the attractions of n cordon
bleu lo president est inert vivo lo president
and the Parisian sat down to his meal to
"peace instead of riot,1' while the newsboys
outside intone "Sadl-Carnot cst president. "
General Sausslcr has proved himself n
splendid governor of Paris. Ho held 50,000
troops all in hand ready to sweep all
anarchists and rioters and yet not a police
man was visible to Irritate tiio Parisiiincrs
or interfere with the harmless amusements
and gaiety gatherings. Miltrcuscs and
twenty batteries of field artillery were
stationed at fortifications , in fact everything
that modern military science could do to
eopo with and crush In the bud any attempt
to proclaim commune was done and nil this
without irritating or exciting anybody.
AM. PAUIS ox mimic.
At 0 o'clock everyone has dined and a good
many wined , and all Paris is in the streets
under bright lights. Tlio great boulevards
arc sought and the great plazas arc generally
crammed with people. In front nnd around
the Grand opera house , where "Faust" is
Being sung , are 10,000 , people standing. Hun
dreds of electric lights nnd gas Jets shone.
The "Marseilles" and the revolutionary
"Carmagolo" now nnd then go up from a
chorus of nl least . " ,000 voices , while occasion
ally battallions of soldiers and troops of cav
alry go past the Herald oftlcc on the way back
to their barracks.
Paris to-night Is overflowing with delight
and republican enthusiasm. All feel con
vinced that the election of Bad ! Carnet means
peace. The new president , after n stay of
only a few minutes tit the Elysce , drove off to
his private residence in the Hue do Bassino ,
near the Arc Triomphc , Which he reached at
10 o'clock. Half an hour later a crowd of
some five hundred people marched up to the
house shouting , "Vive Carnot. " "Vivo la Re-
publiquc. "
i Carnet came out and expressed his thanks.
! Hc&uid : "I thank you my fellow citizens , for
this demonstration and for your acclamation.
Like yourselves , I am warmly grateful to the
republic. Now , show that you nro good citi
zens and go homo quietly. , ' '
The men waved tneir hats and frantically
applauded the first public speech made by the
new president. One of them presented him
with a bouquet , saying :
"It is in the name of France. "
Then they unfurled the tri-color flag nnd
marched off merrily towards the Champs
Elyse , singing the "Marseilles. "
While this demonstration was taking place
I was received most cordially by the presi
dent-elect , who , in reply to my congratula
tions , turned to me nnd said :
"I deeply appreciate the congratulations
that conic to me from the United States. I
feel almost sure that during my tenure of
office wo shall entertain the mos > t friendly
relations with all foreign countries. "

LONDON , Dee. 3. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the Bii : : . | Comments have
been made on Mr. Maples' election us though
ho wcro the first man in trade returned to
ho present house of commons. Such reprc-
icntativcs nro not so numerous on the con-
icrvativo as on the opposition side , but ex
amples may be found even among tlio old
rlstocracy party. I may mention Stephen ,
i maker and seller of ink , nnd General Dais -
, -is , a distiller of acid , n contract
rcry shaky on the letter "H. "
There are five or six brewers
nd several stock brokers. The
conservatives can also boast of Newncs , pro
prietor of a paper which would bo cast out
ivlth scorn from gilded saloons' The present
secretary of the treasury , like General Grant ,
ivas a tanner. The president of the local
government Ritchie is in the jute
.rnde. Is not the leader of the house a news-
render and what was Lord Salisbury for
many years but a journalist ) But perhaps
journalist docs not look upon
: iimself as in trade. There is
no great branch of business which has
not sent a conservative delegate to the house
of commons. On the oihcr side we can boast
among the Irish representatives of Blane , a
: uilor , ono of < the worbt dressed
ncn in the house of commons.
We have also Mat Harris , a bricklayer , now
described as n builder ; Gilhooly , a dry
gooels dealer ; Jordan , n cattle driver ; Lane ,
a salesman ; McDonald , n whisky distiller ;
Bernard Kcclcr , a grocer's assistant ; two
.public house keepers , a watch
maker and any number of unknown
Volirndllsts , besides some famous
ones , like McCarty , O'Kclly , and
; iinong the Gladstonians wo have n flower
seed elcalcr , two workingmen , much re
spected , n mason , a schoolmaster and a car
penter. Thcro arc several brewers and no
end of lawyers. Altogether wo have 135 law
yers in the house and sixty-two railroad di
rectors. The latter contingent take good
care thai the railroads shall never
suffer , no matter which party maybe
bo in power. You 'will see then
that Maples is not likely to bo boycotted be
cause ho sells goods , when the aristocrats
themselves are only too glad to find an open
ing in trade. The ordinary storekeeper holds
himself quite as good as they perhaps bet
ter , [ because he is in a position to pay his
I could scarcely reckon up the number of
swells who have gone into business near
Alexandria hotel , opposite Hyde park.
There is a ladies' dressmaker , with n
foreign name , over the door. It is really
kept by an ex-masher , Bertie Stopford , cousin
to General the Earl of Courton. Another of
the well-known ladies is Mmc. Isebells. Her
husband was an officer in ono of England's
crack regiments , the Fourteenth hassars. A
sister-in-law of the eleventh Marquis of
Huntley keeps a baby linen shop. A son of
the Duke of Rigg'o is in the wine trade and
another is a broker.
After all , most of these people are only re
turning to the level from which they sprung1.
Was not the ancestor of the Earl of Essex a
tailor , and of the proud Earl of Warwick a
wool stapler ? The Earl of Ducio also owes
his origin to a tailor. Lord Tankcrvillc
traces his blue blood to a Silk mercer , Lord
Dartmouth to a skinner , Lord Annally to n
money-lender. Not u single male descend
ant now remains in the British
aristocracy of any of the carls or barons
created by the Norman kings nor of any ot
the Runnimcade , and out of the sixty Eng
lish peerage surviving down to Elizabeth ,
forty-one are now extinct. It would never
do to inquire too curiously into the exact
causes for which existing peerages were
granted. Maples , the furniture man , may
well keep up a good countenance tliough he
finds himself associated with aristocracy.
Ho will doubtless ho elected to the Carlcton ,
Why not ! I think the people are there whc
have no better right to membership. Every
body in London would agree with this re
mark if I wcro only free to mention names
Maples may not bo so polished as his tablc <
but ho _ cannot bo a moro vulgar mar
or a greater bore than some of hi *
"party associates. Ho will now b (
introduced at court and go to the
queen's garden parties and balls. Ho will bt
uo moro out of place than many others whose
hands are not quite BO clean as Maples. " Lei
us hope ho will soon bo joined In parliament

BniiUK , Dec. 3. Official nnd diplomatic
circles in Berlin were absoibed in to-day's
developments in Paris but public interest
was not ut all strained. An unceasing btrcam
of telegrams ponied into the foreign office
and the details of voting at Versailles were ,
without delay , telegraphed to Friedrichruhc.
The election of Saidi-Carnot is better re
ceived in official circles than would have
been that of DC Frcycinet or Ferry. The
new president is considered to bo a
feeble man and ono who would bo
unwilling to consent to the complications
which might bring about European war. It
is also bellcveil he will be unable to make
alliances against Germany. His personal
preferences nro for a neutral Pacific policy ,
and he will try to govern through a ministry
with the same tendencies. Telegrams re
ccived hero from the German embassy at
Paris record the gratifying fact that , though
it was considered necessary to guard the approaches
preaches to the embassy , everything was
peaceful during the excitement. The utter
absence of any anti-German demonstration ,
the efforts of Deroulcde and others to provoke
voko a patriotic ebullition finding no responses
ponsos , is raising hoops of a prolonged as
suagement of the revanche sentiment.
On the sldo of Russia the situation still
continues grave. The c/nr has failed to gain
control of the anti-Teutonic party , nnd if ho
himself is convinced of the friendly inten
tions of the German government he has been
unable to pursuado the majority
in the imperial council that some
practical measures are necessary to restore
an entente. In the meantime the anti-Ger
man personnel in the ministry remains in
power and an order of Do Gicrs in
structing the press to cease attacking Germany -
many IB defied.
The severest contest during the session of
the relchstag will bo that over the bill mak
ing the legislative period five instead of tlirco
years. The bill la practically a government
affair. Tlio official organs support the pro
posal strongly on the ground that it will
relieve the people of the disturbing
influences of often recurring elections , while
giving greater moval independence to the
parliament.T'hcro will bo a flcrco and a
vcnomed fight before the measure passes , but
it will pass with u solid majority equalling
the scptcnnato vote. No combination can
defeat any bill having the support of the gov
ernment groups.
The project to organbo the landwchr and
landstrum Is still before the bundcsrath , but
some of Its provisions were made known
to-night. No official estimates have yet
been Issued as to what result the project will
have in strengthening the reserve , but it Is
reported that it will increase the defensive
force of the empire by100,000 men.

LONDON , Dec. 3 , [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the Bii.J : : Jake Kilrain
is training for his coming fight at a tranquil
seaside spot on the southeast coast of Engi
land , the exact locality being for vnrioui
reasons kept quiet. It was made ready by
his filends and by request the Herald cor
respondent visited it to-day. After two anej
a half hours of mountainous railway ride 1
arrived nt a small seaport town , where , iu q
respectable-looking cottage fronting thd
beach , I found Kilrain nnd Mitchell residing ,
and on inquiring for Kilrain or Mitchell and
presenting a Herald card , I was shown into
the billiard room of the residence. I
found Mitchell nnd Clttrley Rowcll over a
game , they talking freely while proceeding
with it , while Kilrain came in just before tha
finish and when the game was' over , to my
questions us to Kilraln's methods and habits
here , Mitchell gave this narrative : "Jako iv
rises about 0:80 : every morning and goes out
for a long walk with Rowcll along the scat
shore until 8:30 : , then back to breakfast ,
which consists of cither beefsteak , mutton
chops and fish or grilled fowl , as ho wishes ,
and which is varied dally. Ho then rests fo ?
an hour and goes out again nt 10 a. in. ,
wearing heavy sweaters , and docs from fif
teen to twenty miles running and walking in
company with Rowcll. This ho varies with
bouts with a twenty-pound air bag. When ho
comes back to tlio house ho 1ms a bath In sea
water , followed by ono hour's good rubbing
with Irish whisky for his body nnd liniment
for his legs. Then Jake takes light recreat
ing , such as billiards , until dinner , which is
at 1:30 : p. m. , consisting of roast beef
or mutton , a little greens nnd sale (
bread , but no potatoes nnd half a
pint of old nlo after dinner. Ho pickles hla
hands to toughen the skin. The ingredients'
arc vinegar , horse radish and rock salt. Then
follows Indian club exercise , dumb bolls and
punching the heavy bag for an hour. Ho is
next rubbed down with whisky all ovci * nnd
this performance takes till supper or tea time , '
which consists of anything light that ho fan
cies devoid of fat. He sometimes has a llttld
isinglass , then rests for about thrco-qutrtora
of an hour , when ho takes an easy stroll for
about an hour , comes home , writes his corre
spondence for tlio day and gees to bed tt 0:30 :
after a good rub down. i
Turning to Mitchell T asked him about hla
own coming light with Sullivan , when ha
said :
"I have plenty of time to get In fightingconx
dltion to meet him after Kllrain's light is
over , when I shall make similar training to
what Kilrain is doing now , bet I feel so welj
now that I am sure I can get myself fit to
fight Sullivan in three weeks. . I am very
much pleased that the match has been made
and especially for some time ahead , so that
Sullivan can get himself fit and ( hero cannot
bo any excuse for his being out of condition
when he meets me , when I hope and feel cer
tain of showing to the American , as well as *
the English people , that Sullivan is nothing
but a wind-bag. "
Jake Kilrain , who had been out of the
room for a few moments , came back now ,
attired In a dark-blue flannel sliiit , with
white swelter underneath , nnd fnne-y Turn
O'Shantcr cap. It was now I noticed bis
altered appearance since I described
his debut in St. .lames hall. Ho had hs !
moustueho shaved , or , as ho himself said ,
"My point of beauty has gone. " Ho looks
quite contradictory lo his pictures , which are
frocly sold here ) now , and said as regards
Smith : _
"I have only met him for a nvomcni , TThS-
I merely shook hands with him. 1 then ,
found him a plcanant fellow to talk to. Oh ,
yes , I feel confident that I shall win my fight
with Smith. Iflwmlshallgivoovcrflghtlnir
altogether. It is too much work to keep In
training while you and other people stay In
London seeing the sights , and I am almoVt
bui led allvo hero. lam about twenty-eight
pounds lighter than when I left America ,
and I feel all the better for it , only they
won't let mo cat and drink enough. "
"No " added Mitchell " ! ,
, , e wants to drink
too much tea. "
"Perhaps arc right Charley " said
you , , KlI-
raln , laughing , and added , "as for Sullivan ,
if ho means to light ho had several chances In
Anicrl'a of earning moro money than ever ho
did hat ! ha fought met , which 1 wanted him to
do and still v.isii. As regards Mitchell's
match with Sullivan , I think Mitchell is
twk'O as clever as Sullivan and live times as
unxious to fii'ht him , and I think in aknuckla
tight Mitchell will win and I hope ho will
win when , unlike Sullivan , 1 shall ncvci * *
c'.ewy .saying so. "
I now turned to Charley Rowcll , who bed
Just finished a game of billiards with WlUle
Mitchell , Charley's brother , when ho said :
"Kllraln could nut possibly bo bettor thaa
.ho Is at picscnt , and I know , , undoubtedly
fu'iu experience , ho can hit awfully nurd ,
and I think ho will beat Smith. " ,
