LONDON , Juno 10. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to Tun BKE. ] Universal spec
ulative talk on 'change and in the clubs nnd
social circles is regarding the effect on the
peace of Europe of the accession of the
young twenty-nlne-ycnr-old emperor , I vis
ited several officials , members of pn'rlinmcnt
nnd representative commercial men to get
their views , but found none would permit
their names used , nnd without this use their
opinions nro only blank cartridges. These
views from the Times nnd Post , the only
morning papers that touch the subject , seem
to volco the opinions i heard : '
"Tho Emperor William II. Inherits the
name of the great founder of the rcstorei
empire ns well as the robust traditions
of a long line of energetic and
far-seeing rulers. Ho is assured from
the outset of tno wurm interest of
nil .Englishmen , who well remember
the grandson of their queen. The good' un
derstandlng based on tics of national kin
ship ns well as on u community of interests
which exists between Germany nnd this
country mny bo moro'casily cemented undei
the reign of Emperor William II. Not mucl
nttentlon is to bo paid to the tempers which
npuear to bo excited In Paris and elsewhere
hy the accession of a sovereign who is repre
scntcd ns being loss dovotcd to pcnco than
his father. It is true the now emperor is
moro decidedly , a soldier by temperamen
nnd taste than was Frederick III , and whili
his grandfather mid father still lived his ac
'cession to the throne seemed distant. Ho
may have used language capable of miscon
struction. It was shown recently that he
lias an increased sense of the responsibility
by his prqtcst against the charge
or insinuation that ho was at
enemy of Greece. The Emperor AVilliau
was fully as'much n warrior prince as his
grandson , yet those who know anything o
European politics are aware that his inllu
cnco was steadily exerted to avert wur , I
Prince Bismarck obtains the ascendenc ;
whicn it is expected will full to him in tin
counsels of the new sovereign , it mny bo us
sumed ho will keep in view us heretofore tin
innintcnnnco of the status quo in Europe. Thl :
is the object of his policy nnd wo anticipate no
possibility of war as n means of restraining
subversive and revolutionary disturbances.
The Morning Post observes : "It will re
main with the young successor on the impcr
inl throne to commend himself to regard his
subjects and Germany's allies by coutinuin ; ,
the expressed plans of his illustrious father
The now emperor is understood to bo thor
oufihly in accord with the views o
the imperial chancellor , who become
moro than ever the mainstay of the Gemini
empire. With Bismarck und Von Moltko b ,
his side there should bo no fear of any break
in the definite policy which has always char
acterlzcd the empire since is unifaction
Nevertheless tl'o new sovereign has yet his
reputation to make.
M , DolowiU presents these views in th
circles where politics nro the chief topic
"Sonio think that Prince Bismarck , owing
to the almost passionate admiration pro
fc sod by him for the new emperor , will
nt least a mainstay for good with his uncon
trolled master. Others again who watcl
\\ltatlspassingln Eurouo with close nttcn
tion and who profess to know th
character of the now sovereign nro
convinced that in spite of his
admiration for Prince Bismarck , ho will not
long submit to bo entirely ruled by him.
They say wo must not nssumo that the em
peror and Germany's master-mind will fol
low In tha saino footsteps. According to
them , in a short time , the young emperor
will deslro to use his own wings , and his im-
po uosity will dcrnngo the plans of his prlino
minister. Others think In the present re-
hihtanco which ho will encounter , in spite of
his nrdcnt temperament , ho will bo promptly
intulo to feel ho must eonsidur Germnn pub
lic opinion nnd the views of German sover-
CIKHS who uro jealous of any interference
with the privileges that remain to thorn. Ho
will thus bo led by force of circumstances
to excrclso self constraint and con
form to the desires of his allies ,
Again it is hold that even if the new emperor
hod the desire to carry out a policy of his
own , yet ho would heed the udvlco of Prince
Bismarck , which he might question but
which ho would not reject , and feeling the
responsibility of his new l > ositioii , It will
make him for some time nt least nn emperor

tepipornmcnt and military ardor , "

TUo emperor's proclamation which ap
peared after the funeral was of the most pa-
cilie character. Special stress was laid on
foreign relations being continued in exactly
the same spirit as under William I. and
All the papers to-day publish full accounts
of the life of the new emperor. The ICrcuz

in a leader to-day : "A boundless future is
in store for our now kaiser , and all Germans

BEI'.UN , Juno 1(5. ( The first full declara
tion of the new emperor's policy is now
understood as taking the form of an address
to the Prussian people which is expected to
bo issued on Tuesday. The Reichstag will
bo summoned to meet June ! 25 to receive the
message and shortly afterwards the em
peror will formally take the oath of the con
stitution before the landtag. Officially
nothing is known of the charaetcr of
the emperor's address to the people.
Prince Bismark held n conference to-day
with the Prussian ministry and afterwards
obtained an audience with Emperor 'Will
iam II. The impression in ministerial
circles is the address will bo explicit upon
the emperor's desire to maintain peace , and
guarded upon the subject of the relations be
tween the crown and the people.
The remains of Emperor Frederick wcro
placed in the coflin to-night and carried to
the catafalque which had been erected in the
Jasper gallery. The funeral service was
'read in the Jasper gallery by Chnplaii
Kocgel. All the members of the imncria !
family were present at the service. The
transfer of-the remains to their iThal resting
place will take place on Monday morning.
Prince Bismarck has received a telegram
from Signer Crispi , the Italian minister , ex
pressing the deep sympathy of the Italian
people and transmitting from the king ex
pressions of his profound sorrow together
with his ardent wishes for the prosperity of
tUo new emperor's reign.
The appearance of to-day's message to the
army the first public act of the new cm
pero'r has quickened public perception of the
fact that Germany is entering upon a new
regime. All the best informed military anil
diplomatic authorities are aware that the
now emperor's desire is to hasten the final
outcome of the present political situation. As
ttio crown prince , he freely expressed hi
view that the condition of armed
suspense in Europe for ovci
two years ought to como to an
end. His deep .and open admiration for
Prince Bismarck is considered ns likely to
bind him for some time to the chancellor
policy , but witnin his own circle his charac
ter as a resolute , self-willed and ambitious
man , produces tbo belief that despite his
friendship for and devotion to Bismarck ho
will not wait long before seeming to give a
decided impetus to Germany's foreign policy.
The current ideas about the Emperor
William are that ho is a half-cultured dril
sergeant and as hating something not Ger
man. Those nearest declare that ho is ah
solutcly without national antipathies , but absolutely
solutoly fond of having his own way. Every
section concurs in hoping that his elevation
will ameliorate the defects in his character ,
or that the fb > cc of circumstances will oblige
him to follow the circumspect policy of his

WASHINGTON , Juno 10. Mr. Randall of

call it up for action at the earliest possible
moment. It appropriates $23,874,1250.
The house then went into committee of the
whole on the nrmy appropriation bill. On
motion of Mr. Howcll of Illinois an amend
ment was adopted appropriating $300,000 for
beginning the construction of a new military
post near Chicago.
Mr. Ford of Michigan moved nn nmend

of powdert to fire morning nnd evening guns

Mr. Trneey of New York , offered an
amendment appropriating 5120,000 for
the enlargement of the plant
nt Wutcrvlict arsenal , New York ,
and $400,000 for the manufacture of cannon
and carriages , projectiles for torpedo experi
ments anil the expenses of ordnance officers.
Messrs. Tracy and Spinola , of New York ,
set forth the public demand for adequate
coast defenses.
Mr. Uandall mailo a point of order against
the amendment. He said that science had sc
advanced that had the last fortification bill
become n law the money would have been
absolutely wasted. Chairman Springer sus
tained the point of order und the unendmcirl
was ruled out.
On motion of Mr. Laird , of Nebraska ,
provision was added to the paragraph relat
ing to post supplies , requiring them to bo
purchased where they can bo purchasct
cheapest , quality and cost of transportation

WASHINGTON. June 10. [ Special to THE
BEE. ] Sonio comment has been created
hero in political circles over the announcement
mont that-three men prominently identified
with the administration will not remain con
nccted with President Cleveland at the close
of the present term , even should they bo re
elected. Secretaries Fairchiid and Vilas
and Postmaster General Dickinson are al
most certain to bo retained. Secretary Whit
ney will , in all probability , , retire on his own
volition , as ho spent a great deal of monej
and time in good service for tlio party uni
the country. ' Attorney General Garlam
claims , it is said , that helms had enough o
official life , and that ho wants to retire to the
isolation of Hominy Hill. Whitney am'
Garland can bo dispensed with as the presl
dent will have little difficulty in finding two
men fit to fill the positions which they now
occupy , but there is one man who , it is said
will retire , whoso loss will be keenly felt by
the president in the event of his retention ii :
office for another term of four years.
Tliis is Daniel Lauiont , the ublc und 1iro
ficicnt private secretary. It is not known
that Colonel Lauiont has definitely deter
mined to retire from official connection will
tlio government , but some months ago it was
announced semi-oflicially that the president's
private secretary had had enough of glOry
and that ho had derided that it was timotlui
he should bo looking around for something
butter qualified to keep the wolf from the
door than tlm mere honor of his position
The salary of the pi e.sident's private secretary
tary is $ iDOO a year , and by the very nature
of his position ho is compelled to enter into
social engagements which require a grcu'
deal of outside expenditures.
Colonel Lauiont said , us long 'ago ns las'
summer , that he ho/1 about made up his mini
that it was time for him to be looking iirount
for something moro profitable in u Jinancia
way than political honors , and this doubtless
gave rise to the assertion recently so widely
disseminated , that ho proposed to rctlro fron
ofilco with the close of the present presidcn
tiiil term.
If the president loses Daniel Lumont ho
will huvo to look around for some moro Dan
iels. The original tlirco will have left him
Daniel N , Lockwood , who first brought him
into prominence by nqmlnatiim him for every
olllco which ho has yet lillcd , lias soured on
the president , and has not been near the
white house for moro than two years. Ho
holds a position under the department of
justice whk-h pays him a munificent salary
about i2dOO u year net and ho has n
private income estimated nt from ten to
twenty thousum ] , so that ho Is not dependent
upon official preferment. Ho will take no
part in the present campaign. Unniel Man
ning , who was the second of the trio , lias
gone where politics ceases to bother ; and
now , if Daniel Lament , the third and most
effective of the llireo , should leave the presi
dent ho would have to make other connec
tions if his luck is to remain with him.
Daniel Dougherty placed the president in
nomination at St. Louis , und who Is the Dan
iel to till the cabinet position , and which ono
of all the Dans in the country js to become
private secretary are conundrums which
will give the politicians u great deal of think
ing to do before they reach u satisfactory
