WASHINGTON HUIIBAU Tiir.O.MAiiA HUE , ) 513 FOURTEENTH STIIIIKT , > WASIIINHTGN. 1) . C. . April l 15. 1 There Is n report In circulation in Wash ington lo Iho effect that Chairman Harnum. of Connecticut , l very bitterly opposed to n rcnomtnnUon of Cleveland , nnd that If the present plans nio carried out at St. Louis , the "seven more mules" politician will Hnd It convenient to bo too bupy during the cam paign lo bo of any nsslslance. President Cleveland has overlooked Mr. Harnum , ns ho has about nil thu other active democrats , in the matter of giving out tlio spoils , nnd the Connecticut boss has not been consulted much about anything. Hut this Is not his reason for opposing n continuance of the present administration. Harnum is n pro tectionist. Hois Interested in manufactur ing and wanls the tariff maintained on im- pPrJ-i' ' Ho does not subscribe to Jnny feature of the vrcsldcnt's last message , and says II Will lose all Now England nnd probably Now York to the dcmocrnlie party. Ho , as chairman of the national com mittee In 1880 and 1884 , studiouslysuppressed tariff pnbllcalions and endeavored lo make the light on purely personal grounds. Con necticut is rampant in opposition to the Mills bill , nnd democrats in Washington arc won dering If they can do anything lo lead Mr , Harnum lo support Mr. Cleveland utter the St. Louis convention. It Is conceded that Heprcscntnlivo William L , Scoll , of Pennsylvania , will bo chairman of the democratic national committee. Scotl is a milhonaro nnd can raise more money foi campaign purposes than any man in UK parly. Ho is n member of Iho house commit tco on ways and means , is enthusiastically it : favor of Iho Mills bill , which it Is understood ho largely composed , and is held responsible for many o'f the extreme tariff reform utler nnccs of Iho president in his last message U congress. Scott has had an experience ol three campaigns. Ho was ono of Tildcn'f most trusted advisors , and ono of the few who , In 18TO , was ready lo inaugurate a dem ocratic president at all hazards. In 1SSO he jnvo liberally of his time and means lo the Hancock campaign , and in 1SS4 ho did the same for Cleveland. Ho is the head and front of the Pennsyl van In revenue reform wing of the party , am is making tlio light there for Cleveland thai ho made in 1880 for Tilden. In ISbO Harnuir nnd Randall were his allies ; now Uandall is his opponent. Ho seems to have gathered m ; experience which equips him bettor for ,1 Btato light. Scott is levying n determiner warfare on all democrats in his stuto who di not support the Mills Dili , and declares thai all the democratic members from Penn sylvania , except Uandall and Sowdon , will vote for it. Ho is preparing to make n des perate effort to defeat Sowdon , who was the only democrat who last week refused to be bound by the caucus action and vote to ad journ the house and defeat the direct tax bill. Scott's men say Sowdcn lias nn ulteriot purpose in acting independent in this in stance. liy tlio terms of the recent bill re- dihtncling HID stale of Pennsylvania , Sowdon's county Is thrown intc Hoprcscntativo Ermcntrout's district. The latter will bo nominated , anil SSowden , it is said , will run ns an Independ ent democrat nnd have the republicans make no nomination. Knncntrout voted against consideration of the Morrison bill in thu last congress and Is now for the Mills bill , behifj driven into line by Scott , and it remains tc be s''on whether his action will be ) endorscil by his cdnstitucnts , lIKl'i : IIMCAX CAI.CI'I , VTIONS. Among Iho oldcsl nnd most reliable demo cratic organs in Washington is the Sunday Humid. It has swallowed everything Presi dent Cleveland has given out and declared it was food , till the tarin"mes , ao went to con- Kress. Tills it held to bo destructive. Here is one of its observations to-day : "There if no blinking the fuel thai Iho republicans arc much moro hopeful than they wcro prior te : the president's tariff message. Heforo that they were in the dumps ; now they are hope ful and some of them even sanguine of sue cess , These hopes are based mainly upon the fact that thu so-called leaders of the demo cratic phalanx m Now Jersey and Connecticut nro not in sympathy with the administra tion's tariff policy and upon alleged disaf fection In New York. The republicans hope to utilize- the protective tariff feeling among the laboring element of thcso states , while they expect hike-warm work from the demo- cralio leaders in New Jersey nnd Connecticut nnd u democratic1 contingent from the disap pointed In Now York. Of Iho men who helped to carry New York , Manning , thu recognized slate leader , is dead ; Hubert O. Thompson , who wielded onei wing of the New York democrats , nnd John Kelly , who brought the Tammany contingcnl to the polls , are all gono.

[ New York Hcrnlil Cable Special to the HER. ] The now re volt In the Glndstoulan party lins thus fnr hnd the effect of stimulating the venerable leader to creator zeal. The Olmlstoninns In their back scats could stand their miserable position : io longer. Messages \vcro convoyed to Mr. Ghulstono conveying gentle hints and mild appeals. To thcso ho paid no heed. The party had settled down upon him as it did in 1874 after his great defeat. Once more his thoughts turned towards theology. Unfortunately most of his followers take no interest in theology. They don't oven coino to prayers , as Labby admitted the oilier night , except when they went to secure n scat. Therefore they tried to drug their lender down from the clouds and to niako him understand that Smith Is the man ho should bo after instead of confusing his mind with speculations on the fall of man. I believe the Parncllitcs took little part , In this grand remonstrance. In no way do they seek to bring a pressure upon Mr. Gladstone. Their respect for his opinions and anxiety to spare him inconvenience are touching to wit ness. Tlio English radicals arc not so con siderate , They felt tlio time had come to push their leader on. Mr. Ghulstono re ceived tlio message meekly , and instead of resigning ho is once more buckling on his armour. Five more liberal unionists have undoubtedly gene back to the old man , and it is believed six others have managed to scram ble to the top of the fence , preparatory to dropping down into the true fold. That be ing so the Glndstonlans do not. to-day talk quite so much of making up their differences with HnrUngton's followers. Once more they nro hopeful of winning back a sufllcicnt number of wanderers to Jeopardize the gov ernment. Let it bo plainly understood that n largo section of radicals , and all the Parncll- lies would adopt almost any course in prefer ence to making any compromise with Cham berlain , They look upon him us the primu cause of nil their misfortunes , and never ccaso to denounce him as a traitor. Hurting- ton is not peculiarly objectionable , and no body bears much animosity towards LJright , who , moreover , in this house is no longer n live combatant. Chamberlain is one man who can never bo forgiven. I am bound to add Unit lie shows not the slightest disposi tion to seek forgiveness. Tlio week then ends with moro life in it than any of us anticipated. There is clearly n good cliiinco for-a row and that is some thing. Wo arc getting tired of this peaceful monotony. No Dr. Tanner , who is on his honeymoon , no obstruction , no bad language , no all-night sittings , no cloture even. If this goes on much longer we shall begin to fancy we are once moro n respectable legislative body. The real sport will begin when the resolution is introduced demanding local government for Ireland. Most of us are pledged to concede that wo will , most of us , vote for it. That is a poser. Your duty on the government sldo is to vote always and often for the ministry. If on the other , vote with your leaders. The people who think and vote on strictly conscientious grounds nro few or what would become of party govern ment. Therefore when local reforms for Ire land are asked for many will say it is too soon and Hartiugton has already plainly given the cue for tlio cry. Tlio lories gcner- erally will do as they are told. A few union ists may bolt , but bolters never do much good for themselves in any country. Shut your eyes and lot tlio wire pullers guide you where they will. Such is the short road to oflicc , emoluments , honors perhaps to a peerage , and 1 expect to see many take it when Ire land presents herself once more at tlio bar of the house and again her melancholy question rings in our ears : "What are 5-011 going to do for mol" A Mr.Mimu or P.\UUAMI.XT. : Misrepresented IJy His LONDON- .

Tlint Now Golnn On Ilctwcnn Kinpnror Frederick and IIin Chancellor. [ Oipiyrfy/it / IhKSliuJitinrit ( Ittiilun Hewlett. ] HIIUN : : , April 15. [ New York Herald Cable Special to the Hii : : . ] Since the unity of Germany was proclaimed at Versailles eighteen years ago , the German people have not been 'confronted with such vital consequences quences as the lifo and death struggle going on between tlio emperor and Hininarek. Every German , from the feudal baron of Thnriiigin to the poorest woman in Berlin , Is fully alive to the enormous stakes being played for in the supreme struggle between the iron heel of autocracy and military des- pothm on the ono hand and constitu tional monarchy or government by tlio people and for the people , on thu other. The nation is aroused. This is in everyone's mind , ami this is what is talked about at every llrcsido and over every mug of beer in Germany. Kvcry German is now making up his mind under which banner to light , Just as in IbOO every American was making up his mind for tlio north or south , Just as the logical conclusion of our great htrugglo was tlio abolition of state sovereign- ity and slavery , BO the inevitable result of tlio great struggle now convulsing Germany will bo the abolition of military absolutism and autocracy. Bismarck , like Richelieu , like Woolsoy , Hko Cromwell , can exist only by absolute dictatorship. Bismarck has been accustomed to play boldly for high stakes. In Jbfif ) lie risked everything' , even the loss of his head , and ho is prepared to do so now in this last and huprcmo struggle. Slnco 1WO Bismarck has been paramount. ICuiser AVilhclm , with nn old man's fondness verging at times to weak ness , gave his chancellor carlo blanche. If any hitch occurred Bismarck would threaten to resign. Ho used to do that on an average unco a year and the old kaiser invariably yielded. The chancellor now appeals to fuedal Germany , to the descendants of the old robber barons of the llartzand the Uhino who are rallying about him. Ho adroitly I'ans the latent lire of German nationalism 'ami of German anglophobiit by sayiug that the supremacy of Emperor Fred erick means the placing of Germany under the royal family of England , and on this point the untimely visit of Queen Vic toria to Hcrlln will bo a trump card in Bis- marck's hand and cannot but bo regarded as a prnvc diplomatic blunder. It will certainly be utilized by the emperor's enemies ns fore showing an English , nnli-ltussltin keynote to Germany's foreign policy. Bismarck delights at times in playing to the gallery and Is nnx- loui to counteract the bad impression already created by having thrown overboard all the traditions of German loyalty and oven Gor man chivalry by wcnnlng away the heart of the emperor's eldest son and attacking fiercely his almost dying father. In this supreme premo contest Histnarck's ' potent allies are cancer and the crown prince. It is Bismarck nnd absolutism against con stitutional sovcrclgty and representative gov ernment. In this impossible vortex of terrible - riblo anxiety all Hcrlln has been plunged for the last forty-eight hours by conflicting ru mors from the imperial bedside. As 1 write this dispatch in the reading room of the Kalserhof hotel wild reports como Hying about like falling leaves in nn autumn gale. "The emperor is dying. " "Tho emperor is dead. " Then several minutes later "Mackenzie has again changed the tube and still hopes. " Then a well-known banker enters the hotel nnd whispers , "Tho emperor is dead. " Then later : "The emperor etlll lives. " Premier Flonuct. Spcnlcs. PAWN , April 15 , [ Special Cablegram to the Hni : . ] Figarro and other journals deny that Mackay has been supplying Houhmgcr with funds for his political campaign. Premier Floquct presided at the annual meeting of the commercial union In Tro- cader. Six thousand persons were present. Floquct , in n speech , declared that the solo guarantee for civil liberty was political lib erty. Republican Franco needed neither a protector in time of pcaco or n director In time of war , if the necessity of defending her honor forced her to take up arms. "Wo want no one , " ho contin ued , "because now in peace wo have republican institutions after seventeen years of exertion , strife and perseverance. In the event of war wo have skilled and valiant generals who will loyally obey the pubic powers , and aeitizen'snrmy , the ( lower of the nation , far which you nil feel solicitude and which enjoys such popularity among you. It is n republic of liberty which has decided to celebrate the ccntcnnary of ItSU by holding n universal exhibition. In order to make the festival complete let concord bo restored among us and let us remain a people master of its destinies. " The own speech was re ceived with great applause.

Last night was I bad ono for ex-Senator Colliding. Ho slept but little nnd was effected by a bad cough thai disturbed him every few minutes. 1I Is much proslratcd by It , nnd this morning was weak nnd nervous. Dr. Hakcr said this morning there were no symptoms for tha worse in the patient's condition , except some bronchitis developed during the night. Ills pulse was V'O ' and temperature USJtf.

A state of partial coma was the next development , and then ho lost the power to resist the doctor's efforts to feed him mid dress his wound. Shortly nftqr 10 : ! ! this afternoon ho sank Into asleep which was more a state of stujtor limn sleep. Not for n single moment was ho rational this afternoon , and his mind seemed tilled with recollections of the great law suits and politi cal campaigns in which ho luul been the leading llguro. From ! l o'clock until 8 many callers loffc their cards , but no word came from the sick room other than that Colliding was still sleeping nnd unconscious. About 8 o'clock Dr. Darker entered the house , and n few minutes Inter two burly porters from the Hoffman house ran up the steps and were ushered into Conkling's residence. Tills in cident caused sonio excitement among the watchers , who inferred that Conkling had become uncontrollable and thai the men had been summoned to hold him.
