I BimiK , July 7. [ Now York Herald
Cable-Special to Tun 15ir. : . ] Politics are
II still nt fever heat in Germany. Hcrr
Fourth's selection , or rather promotion , ns
TI' minister of the interior should not hnvo sur
prised any ono .In Prussi-n. It is the rule ,
rather thnn the exception , for ministers to bo
highly trained pleaders without paity
claims , but Uien In Prussia , and now in Gcr.-
many , ministers nro so seldom changed
that between thd changes precedents
nro forgotten. Herr Fourth's promotion ,
there-fore , came like ) i htnlng from clear
sky. The papers hnvo ever slnco bcdn full
Of theories nnd surmise1 * ns to why no got
the place. TJiQ general supposition nmong
IB outsiders is that His rtarck , in his usual pol
icy qf governing by division , feared that the
accession of the ypung conservative emperor
might milkc the conservative party strong
cuough to bo Independent of him , and that
therefore he was not unwilling to wit-
ricss p'uttkamer's firccd resignation. The
Jong delay in api , 'nting ' the new minis
ter is thought * to bo the result of a
struggle between Hinmnrck. wishing n na
tional liberal minister , nndtlio conservatives
intent only on Puttnmkoi' or some other wire
puller strong in the conservative faith ,
Which , by the way , has Mlsmnrck for its
kej S'.OIIQ , but discards Gaunt Herbert Bis-
inarck , The Krnz Xoiturtg and Other Innu-
r ' * ft cntial conservative papers lent themselves to
m this theory by printing such extraordinary
suggestions as that the letter from Freder *
ick III. , which caused Puttumkcr's ab-
lupl fall was a forged ono forged , nnd Hent
after- the kaiser had ceased to care for
politics. To outsiders the appointment wns
n neutral one , and came naturally as n proof
of the long deadlock between the conserva
tives and 'national liberals. Its influence
ended In Bismarcklan defeat. The conserva
tive papers , too , nt once hot up the cry that
Hcrr Fourth was merely keeping the place
warm for some one of the true faith. It is
cxticmcly doubtful whether this view "is
correct. It seems at lca t possible that the
young kaiser , in his first impoitant
appointment , has shown his grand
father's quick perception of character and
enriched Germany by uneai thing a steady ,
highly trained , non-paitisan minister brought
up In the department he now controls and
able to accomplish its scivico to the last
touch of clllcicncy.
Tlio dissolution of the Cai tcl election agree
ment has also caused endless gossip. The
agreement between the national liberals
nnd conservatives nmilo for the scptcnnato
relehstag elections gave the former
largo increases In numbers. The national
liberal secession , say the radicals , Is
merely n trick to save themselves
from heavy losses at the approaching landtag
elections. So much is certain that Iho con
BCI vativo nlltunco has cost them many Prus
t ' sian votes , and that iu Prussia , nt least , It
Bcoms that in ordinary elections there will bo
no room for the liberal paity which votes
with the conservatives. The secession Is not
likely to effect Bismarck's Caitcl iclclistug
The kaiser's proposed Russian trip , np
pointed by the bourse , U highly disapproved
by many of his subjects. The Yolks
Kcltuncr , for Instance , gives two columns to
tnii wni nlng that "Only Germany and its allies
can save the freedom of the old world Irom
thodevnstntiiiK horde of half Asiatic Slavs , "
r.nd that this may separate Gcriiiiiny from
her allies. The tenor of the comment made
hero on such ni tides Is that lho\ ignore that
widely known fact that wjiilo Franco re-
ninlnta a great poucr Russia will not advance
to Constantinople , but that Fiance out of the
way , Germany can , when needed , have all
Europe ns nn ally ngiilnst Russia. Other
papers preach because Count Luttichan , who
notlllcd the accession of Frcdcilck III. , saw
the c/ar for only llvo minute ; , nnd received
the nniicx otdcr of the second class , while
General Pnpc , who did n similar service tor
the present emperor , talked with the czar
for nn hour and received a high Russian or
der us a Itcopsako.

Sai all is to play Romeo to Mrs. James
Brown Potter's Juliet In Paris next year , so
the grande tragedienne says , and when she
resolves to do n thing she generally does it
unless , of course , she changes her mind.
Sarah was , when I called to sco her , in ex
cellent health nnd spirits , n couple of days
ngo nt her pretty little hotel on the Boule
vard Pcreicr. She was dicsscd in n
charming violet plush tea-gown.
"Yes , for four years longer , " replied Mine.
Bernhardt. Then , with n vivacious glance
at Mrs. Potter , who was sitting near her ,
Bho exclaimed , "Abbey has nil tlio good ar
tists , you know. "
"That reminds mo , I am thinking of play
ing Romeo hero to Mrs. Potter's Juliet dur
ing the exhibition yoar"rhapsodlcally added
the tragedienne. "Mrs. Potter is my ideal
Juliet. She has such n girlish face and llg-
urc well , exactly what I always looked for
in Juliet. I hear , too , she is
so good in tragedy. I feel sure
our Romeo mid Juliet will make a
hit , don't you ? Wo shall net in French
here , of course , but a little later when I hnvo
perfected myself In English wo shall play It
in America in the original. "
"For the next twelve months , " said Sarah
when her visitor had rallied from his sur
prise , "Mis. Potter will study to perfect her
French accent. I shall do the same with my
English. .Meanwhile I start for London on
Satuiday. My husband , M. Damala , will nc-
compuny me , but wo shall not act together
until October , when wo begin our European

A Straiij-o Mirror.
The old city of Rouen , in Franco , has a
pretty sight that is worth describing to your
crowd of young folks. The little men nnd

queer ono of which I shall now tell them.
Near the west door of the church of St.
Oucn , in the city of Rouen , is a marble basin
filled with water. It is so placed that the.
water acts us a mirror , and In the face of it
ono sees all the Insldo of tbo church. Look

and the ceiling , nmt tl o ntcturcR nud ttatu-

tion of tlio building , The stately basin
seems to take pride in holding Us beautiful
