BIIIII.IN , Juno 30. [ New York Herald
pablc Special to T-JI : line. ] Doctor Mac-
[ Kcnzlo's parting shot In the Tagblatt Inter
did moro damage than over ho couli
{ tinvo hoped. The gorgcousncss of two great
ifourt ceremonials , the presence In Berlin ol
! ill the princes of the empire and the excite
Wilt caused by the political court changes
merely delayed Mackenzie's row without it
[ any waj ler.senlng Its bitterness by this
delay. "Was Frederick the third , then
kaiser not by the grace of God but the grnc ;
of Mackenzie ! " asksono paper , and it uses it :
the asking typo so full-faced that there fiavo
been n dozen Inquiries as to
whether it was cast especially for
the occasion to give n fina
touch of interest. Bismarck's persona
organ , the North German Gazette , came ou
with Us column of bitterness to prove that ir
' /pretending / to tell state secrets to the tagblat
Mackenzie took Ills choice of only two course
which Ilk-professional conduct had left open

t ' jwas n fool to adiblt ho was u knavo. No :
( , Sjlho Gazette seldom goes gunning for anyouo
i' ' grower than a minister of state , and the use of
heavy artillery on such a small fry
d endless gossip.
story most commonly told is
> hat Kaiser Frederick left behind
itn an autograph account of his Illness , of
jo regency negotiations at San Rcmo and of
latter political troubles during the
tenburg marriage crisis , etc. that to prevent
the scandal of such a publication Frieder-
ichskron was put under military law the in
stant the emperor died , after having been
previously watched too closely for the Im
portant document to bo smuggled out , but
on search it was discovered Queen Victoria ,
during her Berlin visit , had carried oil the
manuscript , nnd Mackenzie , according to
popular belief , was released from a six-hour
imprisonment , and a confidential prince , so
to speak , was sent off to wheedle the
the queen into giving back the document ,
not that it was feared she would
advertise herself by permitting its publica
tion , but that her confidence might bo abused
by thosj * having moro to gain. This wild
hints nt an amount of dirtv
orthy an unrovised Arabian Nights ,
to have been founded on the following
hut Frcdcrichskron was closed by troops
, _ fore the emperor's death is generally
'unown ' , and also that all its inmates for some
unknown reason were kept practically pris
oners for several hours , and also that some
important papers were left by the kaiser and
that on the day of his accession the pointed
omission of his name In the ministerial
communication to the Prussian legislature
caused a threat of a great popular demon
stration if a similar omission was made to
, ho German congress. Otherwise the whole
! tory , with its insinuations and threats , is
robably uicro gossip.
Ono bad result of the revival of the Mac-
[ ttcnzio controversy lies in the plainness with
which high class loyal papers have begun to
upcak out. Summed up briefly , their ques
tions nro about as follows : Was Kaiser
Frederick's lifo cut short by the determina
tion of two or three persons to prevent a
temporary regency , even if by so doing they
risked their muster's lifo by bringing him
in March from Sunny Italy to bleak
Berlin ! If his transfer to Berlin was
excusable was it mere petty splto
-M\o \ part of others which kept Frederick

Vh was certain and after imploring tolo-
ins hud been sent by the father to his son !
lils weakness did party Intrigue make him
, o head of a party instead of the head of tlio
iition , and Is his grave now to bo used 1
merely as the source of now attacks on his
eon nnd now advertisements for people ho
trusted !
This is nil us unfortunate us It would have
been had Colliding permitted himself
to bo taunted out of his silence -
lenco after Gnrlleld died. Tlio bit
terness with which the row is
carried on is admirably shown by the sneer ,
apropos of nothing in particular , of ono of
the crcnt Gcrniun journals , that under
Kaiser William thi'io can bu no camarilla ,
the tlmo 'vlion tbeio was loom fo. % that
unhealthy nppcrruuco being past.
As signs of the times coming , the an
nouncement that the cinpuror will livu in

merely a conscivntivo demonstration , but It
was undoubtedly a spontaneous demonstra
tion of popular thank's to the king for his
loyalty to Germany ; nnd , coming as It does
from those who would naturally dislike
Prussia most , It may have an Important
effect on n few princelings who would like to
bo Jealous.
The American church In Dresden
held memorial services for , the
latts kaiser last Sunday , Among the inusic\ \
was an anthem written for the occasion by
the American composer , Whitney Coombs.
There is great interest shown hero In the
report from New York ot n German count

fault of names , seems to bo that it Is a son-
in-law of the famous German financier , who ,
after breaking a Jewish wife's heart , eloped
to America with her maid soon after the
honeymoon was over.

It Is commonly said by German papers ,
among others by the Stnatsburqcr Zcitung
that tickets to the opening of the rcichstag
were regularly sold , not , of course , by the

the Austro-IIungarlan ministers , festl

other sources that the czar has a new scheme

In official circles her chances of
any such radical overthrow of the Hcrlin

Kalnoky is known to huvo u close under

to listen to no overtures from Russia unless
they are addressed at the same time to the
other signatory powers.
Much is whispered privately , though the
press does not venture to openly refer to it ,
as to an anarchist plot against the life of the
emperor. The official circle take the affair
seriously , and the extraordinary and in
creased precautions taken to guard the person
both of the emperor and Prince Bismarck
suggest that the report has a solid
basis. Hefcirlug to these measures of im

Cubit Special to TUB Bic. _ : ] Fate is very
kiml\o the Salisbury ministry. Whenever
n scries'of mistakes has landed it iu dlftleul-
ttcs And it begins to think seriously of mend
ing Its way , just enough good fortune befalls
it to make it harden- its heurt midge
go 6n in the old lines. The Ayr election
wa a. staggering blow , and It led to that ex
traordinary meeting at the foreign office ,
whore Lnril Salisbury so loudly lamented the
influence nnd power of the left wing. Had
Kent gone the same way as Ayr the family
party ' must have uacn broken up.
A demand would have arisen for
the reconstruction of a ministry whose
In1 mill weakness is now generally recog
nized , and the conservative party itself
might have been saved froln a great peril ,
but Kent remained faithful to the lories in
"P'toof tremendous efforts to cutlco her to
the other side.
Kent is one county which sends solid bodies
of conservatives 10 parliament , and tnu Glad-
stonian "poppicking" ranks have been disap
pointed. The majority gained by Leather
in about sixty less than at the election of
18S3 , and largely below the majority of
1SSO. The ministry will now conclude
that all previous reverses were mere
accidents , and that this election represents
the true opinions and wishes of the people.
Every seat is worth trying for , no doubt , but
the price that is now being paid is alarming ,
and unless "t&O homo rulers get help from
somewhere they will atbo _ _ able to fight
many moro battles on the same terrr-- .
Are they about to receive a blow in another
direction ? Reports are rife that the libel
suit of O'Doiinall ' against the Times , tobctrm
on Monday , will load to some startling reve
lations. This rumor has long been afloat ,
but I hear it confirmed from sources which
it is impossible to distrust. The
Times has been keeping back some sensa
tional icttcrs and evidence for this trial , and
its whole sticngthis to be expended in the
effort to prove its case and incidentally to
smash the Painollites.
There can bo no doubt thnt the leaders of
this party are wroth with O'Donncll for
bringing the action , altbough ho professes
he is anxious only to .servo them. His friend
ship appears to be of n very dubious kind.
Tno Times will uo represented by
one man at least who will
bo n thorn in the side of the
Parnellites. If Sir Henry James Lowe , the
most formidable cross-examiner at the English -
lish bar , should succeed in petting Mr. Par-
nell into the box there will bo
some sharp passages at arms ,
and even the recent jockey case
full of scaudall as it is , will bo thrown int- >
the shade. Sir Henry James is not likely to
spare the Irish lender from any magnani
mous motives. On the other
hand Parnell has generally shown
that tie knows how to take
care of himself. His Impassive manner , his
Blow , cautious utterances , his skill in parry
ing the thrusts of an adversary all will
stand him in good stead next wcolc. He has
been summoned , and I presume will attend
unless illness intervenes.
The other chief counsel for the Times is
Attorney General Webster. O'Donnell had
engaged Loekwood , but I learn that this
rjueen's counsel positively refused to touch
his brief until ho saw the fee , and down
to this morning that win
not forthcoming. It is htill Just possible that
when the case is called on next Monday ,
O'Dounell will permit judgmentto go against
him by default. In that case the Times will
have spent a vast sum of money In getting
up evidence , retaining counsel , etc. . to no
purpose. This is onoof the penalties to which
the present libel law subjects a newspaper in

body it wiU"booiV Co the' duty of parliament to
determine. Of course if the local govern
ment bill should pass the question would at
onoo bo settled , but dcubts grow stronger ev
ery day on that point.
The government is all behind with its
money votes , und it must have them before
the session ot parliament closes. Over
borne there will be a hard light. The
prospects of iinUhing nny ambitious
schemes already before parliament are dark.
It looks as if there would bo little to show at

brought into the state. The dofi-udannt had

twelve separate packages , each of
which had a bottle ot whisky

so acted upon the articles imported that they
became part of the mnss of property In the

in operation will continue working. Tliero is
no issue between tlio local societies of the
Amalgamated association and the proprie
tors , but as n part of the whole organisation
they must do as the others do and await the
outcome of the struggle ut tnu scat of war.
Tlio best of feeling exists between tbo Bay

The old scale of the Amalgamated associn

ment was reached tlio mills have all closed
Oliver Bros , .t Phillips , the largest firm In
the city , signed the scale to-night , and their
four mills will continue in operation. Tlio
firm employs over three thousand men. D.
B. Oliviu * , who nlllxcd his signature to the
scale , stated that they were forced to sign
the scale on account of the contracts that
had to bo filled. The action of tlio manufac
turers in the matter is awaited with interest ,
TTs it is probable the firm will bo expelled
from the association. , , , , , *

The Iowa rate matter has passed out of the

can bo done is to await the decision of the
court us to whether the temporary injunction

associations have to deal is the low freight

No decisive action can bo taken toward the

r.iNn , Juno ao. | Now York Herald Cable-
Special to Tun Bci.J : Here the great Cur-
ncgic-Blaino coaching trip has now ended
with the close leafy June. Before narrating
the Incidents of this I will give a resume of
some of the phases of the lust few 'days of
the wheeling.
On Wednesday last the coaching party
visited Loch Katrine. After rowing some
time they landed nnd finding a >
handy hlrlocko proceeded to lunch.
Presently , after removing the coach , an
American voice rang out "Jim Blaine of
Maine. " Mr. Blaine looked down nnd took
oil his hat to u party , evidently Americans ,
on a drag returning to their hotel.
"You ought to go home , " cumo another
voice. "
"Three cheers for Blaine , " said a third ,
and three hearty rounds were given ns the
coach drove off. er
Some idea of how the Curnegio coaching 38 $
party pass the day is instructive. They rise *
ut S : i)0 ) , breakfast , and at 8:30 : the couch is in-
tlio door. At 10 a cold lunch is taken in n 'cli
hamper , is cntcn under the shade of soma
tree or under tlio wall of any farm , where
horses arc halted. In these latter case Mr.
Carnegie invites the farmer to join
in and he and Mr. Blaine ply him with i-ues-
tions on agriculture and politics thus finding
out tlio feeling of the district. Atthcso
lunches the servants never wait and the
ladies do all the work nnd tlio gentlemen
open the bottles. From one to twox
hoursis * given to lunch " " "and
rest Srffne read. Mr. Damroseli ,
may be , sings a Scotch song or-pluys n solo &
on the coaching horn , then once again the
conch starts , and if possible the day's Jour
ney ends at about (1 o'clock. Mrs. Carnegie
has taken photographs of ulino't cvo'-i object
of interest ajong the road. At ono time a
ruined abbey , t n-.tuer a group of
highland polled cattle , n mare with
her foal , or a group of wild
icklng children. She has also reproduced
jn the most amusing attitudes and
she has cnough-S 1080 to fll1 fair sized
album. Mrs. Carne'jW"8 ! with her an in
stantaneous camera and alaTgST instrument
with sensitive plates. > .
The evenings ( to not hang at nil. j * lo
Mr. Waller Damrosch sits down nnd plajfi'a
Wagner , or sings. "But , " says the musician'
sadly , "the English pianos nio not equal to
our American ones ; " Often Mr. Bluino will' '
give u masterly dissertation on English
Scotch - American history or tHb" "
drama. Bed well , there Is no
fixed hour in these north
countreo twilight nights. The party often
stroll out , tempted by the beautiful weather.
Mr. Blaine drew my attention to the particular
V )
ular light nights , asserting that print could.nt ( ) oj
bo read out of doors at 10 o'clock in the ovcn-ysinca
' " ( ? . .or'
At ( ilK ; this evening the coaching party'd
came in sight. In the same moment two iry ol
cannons fired a salute of 'wcnty 'ji'tha '
rounds , while the hills around echoed /mud / ,
the reports to an extent , reminding ? eiut
ono of a battle , Next the team that had ' * - . il
driven 700 miles in twenty-four days cqino
bowling up the tree-embowered avenue from
the lodge gates where servants arid towns
men were assembled cheering. Mr. and
Mrs. Carnegie seemed tnueh affected at'tho
heartiness of the reception. Mr. Blaine im
mediately descended ,
"Just look at tliofio horses. Not n mark
upon them " said ho ,
"And how do you feel ! "
"Splendid. Never had an ache or pain the
whole time. "
Mr. Carnegie said : "I think it a great
triumph. "
Another of the party said : "Thjs will
show the English what Amcrler.ns con do. " " " " * "
Mrs. Carnegie clapped her hands with
delight when she got oft the coach. The
day's journey had been very cold , for there
is snow on the mountains from which drivu
cold winds at the threshold over which hung
the Scotch , English and American ( lugs , Tlio
party was met by the champion piper , Mal
colm Macpherson , arrayed in the full dress
of his chin , who played on his pipes , with
great animation the tune , "Highland Lad
die. " Dinner was served at half past 7 , The
feature of the table was the center piece , a
huge SwU'Ji.tnistlo , several feet high.
The Blaine family \rii ! leave Cluny about
the middle of July for tha statesman
yearns for work. Mr , arid Mrs. Phlpps ,
after a few days stay , will start on a trip
through Norway , and Dr. liatoi ) will uway
to the continent. Walter , however - * > .
ever , will pass the bummer at
Cluny and there have an op
portunity to further study music.
The whole party is in the best of hci.ltli and
send Uie message to their friends in America
that they have had u tplviidid
lovely trip. .
