Cleveland Can't Count on the
Wooden Nutmeg Politician.
ncinocr.itlo Or nn Declares Itself
lHpleiiNcil With Iho President's
1'Vcc Trndc Policy Sympathy
For Senator Ilnwlcy.
The ClmlriunnVI11 Fight Him.
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 ,
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. Who are competent to
take their places t and who can bo relied
upon In Connecticut and Now Jersey to do
the work with zeal and heart I Already tlic
icpuhlicans nro making their calculations
nion ) electing Iheilr president with tlio aid of
Ivow Jersey , Connecticut and Indiana , with
out the vote of Now York , although thcv
hope to carry thai stuto also. "
IIMM.KY AND Till ; A > IljllCAN : KM'IIAXOI ! .
Senator Hawloy's friends very much la-
mcnl his connection with the American ICx-
cliiingo in liuropo. Thu democrats generally
nro boasting thai il takes him out of the line
of presidential possibilities and will relegate
him to private life. His personal friends in
both parties , however , declare that it will
not injure ) him and u telegram has been re
ceived from an influential cltlmi of Hart
ford , Conn./ saying that although nearly
SlUO.OOfj of the s-loek is held there and wna
boughl because Senator Hawh\v was the
president of the American Kxchango , no ono

nnd sold none of the stork , although as pres

caveit as careful supervision and good ad-
vlco as hia time and position would admit
nnd although his enemies will try to muitu il
his dmvnfall , there is no likelihood that it
will so result.

she caused the death of an.eccentric and
wealthy business man named Lowcnbei-g ,
who had lived a retired life on Clinton place ,

miser among his neighbors , but showed a
great weakness for spiritualism. Mine. Diss
Do Har became acquainted with Mr. Lowen-
berg and managed to completely control him ,
nnd enthroned herself in his hotiso on thu
ground that it was n command of the spirits.
Lawyer Hummel says that the time of
Lowenberg's death is known to him and the
circumstances attending it. Ho said Lowen-
berg was dead two days in his own house before -
fore the fact bceuuio Known. Hummel
would not state ns to what name Diss Do Har
was known by when she lived in the miser's
house , but stated that after the man's body
had lain in the house for the tiuio stated the
medium informed the polleo and then de
camped. The polleo investigated and found
decomposition was about to sot in , and tlmt
the body lay enlirely uncared for.

erable wealth , did not make any will , nor
could any papers be found relating to the
disposition of his property. While not
directly stating thai Mine. Diss Do Har will
bo accused of murder , ho said thnt the charge

age over him was Koinewhat of a similar nature -
turo to Hint in Lawyer Marsh'H ease. She
was the only person who hnd anything at all
to do with Lowenben * , and although strong

LONDON , April 15. [ 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. :

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
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

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.

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. Thcru
still remains some twitching of the muscles.
The patient has taken considerable nourish *
As Iho day wore on Coiiklltnr's ' nervousness
nnd twitching of muscles became moro pro
nounced. 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.
Dr. Darker remained half an hour , nnd
when he emerged said to the reporter :
"Mr. Conkling is no worse but nslmde boiler :
than al this time last night. Ilo has not
boon in a stale of coma , or oven stupor , ns
was reported. Early this evening ho ex
pressed a desire for n mint julip nnd ho
seemed to enjoy the drink immensely. I
merely called Iho porters in to hold Mr. Conk-
ling down should lie become violent during
thu night , although there are no positive in
dications that ho will become excited. "
11 p. m. Opinions of the friends of Conk
ling and his physicians continue to differ.
Dr. Darker called at 8:15 : p , m. He said
Conkling luul lost nothing and them was no
change in his pulse or temperature since hie
last visit. Notwithstanding this hopeful
view , the following telegram was sentto-day :
Hon. J. P. Jones. Utica , N. Y. Mucli

At lUil : ; ) thcro was no change In Conk-

which reached the street. An hour before
this Edward Stokes said : "Conkling is full
