What are the government doing ! In fact ,
where are the government ! Scattered over
the face of the earth , whllo in London law
and order , of which they are the avowed
guardians , seems to have disappeared.
"Where is Mr. Matthews , homo bccretary ! ho
might bo up in n baleen for aught ho knows
of what is going on. Every night the num
ber of burglaries increases , highway rob
beries are committed with impunity , pnd
whole neighborhoods plundered of every *
thing the thieves can reach. It is the
fashion in the popular region of South Ken
sington to nnix handsome brass plates and
other ornaments upon the street doors. The
last few nights gangs of robbers have gone
the rounds stripping off these decorations.
Even gas fittings have boon removed. Every
morning wo hear of sonio now butchery or
discovery of human remains.
What has como over London all nt once )
For ono thing , the criminal classes are
rapidly increasing. They drift here from
every quarter , knowing that umid this vast
wilderness of houses it is easy to find a hid
Ing place. The police do not increase in pro
portion. Hundreds of miles of street have
to bo protected every night. The present
force is not equal to the task. Some effect ,
too , has been produced by the furious and
systematic attacks made upon the police by
a section of the Gladstonian party. Their
attacks have rendered the police over
cautious , it not timid , and encouraged the
lawless desperadoes who abound In London
to believe that no one will dare Interfere
with them. Wo are apparently fast getting
towards the condition In which Paris was
plunged In 1T&9. There are many circum
stances , Indeed , In every direction around us
which recall with startling vividness the
events that preceded the great French rove
lutlon. Perhaps it is not the business of the
govcrntncct to take note of them
but they do not escape the observa
tion of other people. Then there Is
Homo Secretary Mathews , the bete noir
of the ministry. Virtually ho Is at the head
of the police , and there could scarcely bo
found a moro incompetent person for the po
sltion. Wrapped up in himself to an unheard
of degree , contemptuous of public opinion
ho blunders on from ono mistake to another ,
never doing the right thing at the right mo
mcnt , and but seldom doing it at all. After
such a series of horrible murdeis us in White
Chapel , Imagine his leaving to a private
member of parliament to offer a beggarly reward
ward of X'100 for the discovery of the assas
ins. Long ago there ought to have been a
government reward offered of at least five
times the amount. Matthews has it in his
power to name any amount. . . Ho docs noth
ing. Ho is composing a speech for Birming
ham and probably has no Idea of wh at is
going on in White Chapel. Thof.wholo po
lice force know that his head Is in the clouds.
The detective force cannot do anything but
catch n well known Irish member now and
then , and oven when so engaged it some
times pounces down on the wrong man. The
breed of detectives described by Dickens Is
extinct in England.
Matthews has brought nothing but 111 luck
to the ministry. Ho treated the Miss Cass
iilTuir with contempt , and brought defeat
upon the government. Ho narrowly escaped
n similar blunder In connection with the Sal
vation army. His vacillating was the main
causa of the Trafalgar square disturbance.
In the house of commons his bearing Is de
testable. The late Justice Maulo once said
to in Insolent barrister : "Sir , If you wore
ho Almighty addressing a black beadle ,
your manners would bo offensive. " That
precisely dcserlbo's the homo secretary's
manners. Every time ho speaks ho sets
somebody's back up against him. Lord
Randolph Churchill got him his appointment ,
not , perhaps , knowing much moro about him
than that he ran Sir Charles Dilkcs to earth
by his prosecution in the famous trial , but
Matthews took the earliest opportunity of
rewarding Lord Randolph by turning around
upon him and striving to do him all the
harm he possibly could. The cry is
raised that he ought to leave the
ministry , but the Jonah will not
go , and there is a strange re
luctance to "pitch him overboard. The
ministry , above all things , dreads changes.
It is a very comfortable little family party
now and why run any risk of Importing ele
ments of discord Into It ! The ministers may
have faults , but they are all obedient to the
the chief. They may not do their duty to the
country but they take good care not" to bo
wiser than their butters.
As for the murders in Whtto Chapel , after
all , what Is the good of malting a fuss about
them ! Something or other Is always going
wrens In Whtto Chapel , therefore unless
this brce/c grows into a storm Matthews wilt
CO muddling In the old way and tbo ministry
will suffer much damage. Social causes
will sometimes overthrow the strongest'
) vuty no less than a 'grave , political
mistake. Matthews can't bo expected to.
think of that , but , Lord Salisbury , if ho has
had tlmo to read about the White Chapel
murders , must see the danger ahead If the
homo secretary Is not changed and the pollco
greatly hampered up. Wo shall soon have
vigilance committees established In our
midst and It would not bo remarkable If
sOme of the persons who are now clamoring
for Judge Lynch should find themselves
among the first to stand trembling under a
lamp post.

A 1'fcAYWHIGIIT'S SUICIDE.
IIIH London Friends Cannot Assign n
Cause.

LONDON , Sept. 15. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to Tun Bets. ] The alleged
suicide In the Hoffman house , first made
known on this side In the Paris edition of the
Herald , seems from the stories of friends of
E. V. Secbohm hero to bo Involved lu great
mystery to them. They cannot understand
the motive of his registering under the name
of Lawrence Herbert , nor being without
money. His family reside some part of the
year in Sheffield where his father Is con
cerned in n largo steel manufactory and is
well-to-do , and n part of the year in London.
The firm is Scobohm & Dlcckstahl , with
largo offices ct 110 Cannon street , London
City. The young playwright could have had
all the money he wanted and his mother was
cry fond of him. None of the family were
it their suburban house yesterday or to-day
and only the servants were in charge who
md heard nothing of the subject. I saw
Sugcno C. Stafford , manager for Sophie
Eyre at the Gaiety , and who is a
brother of the well known sou
brette , Leonora Bradley. Ho was
an Intimate friend of Sccbohm. Ho said :
If the story be not n case of mistaken iden
tity I cannot understand the suicide nor the
, iso of an assumed name. I flaw him after
the court had prohibited his version of
'Fatintlcroy" and it did not seem to effect
lis spirits. I bade him good bye for America
and ho was in good spirits , saying he needed
a change of scene to recruit his health. "
Mr. Hamilton Stuart , secretary to Horace
Scdgcr , lessee of the Prince of Wales theater ,
where Sccbohm's version was played , de
scribed Secbohn ns a tall , slim , largo-feat
ured , clean-shaven and rather Prcnchy-look'
ing young man , mid somewhat melancholy
naturally. When his version was first started
it was a great success , but when ho was le
gally stopped ho kept away from the theater.
At the hearing of the case in court he
was absent. His father came hero to
the theater anxiously looking for him.
So did his solicitors , who thought
if they could have procured his pcisonal at
tendance it would have gained the case. Mr.
Stuart added : I should personally think him
likely to commit suicide. " When asked if
there was any financial trouble , Mr. Stuart
said , "Nothing serious. Ho owed Secgor r
balance , but not enough to make Secbohn
bankrupt , nor compel him to leave the
country. "
The fact Is that after ho loft Englaiu
nothing whatever is known on tills side of his
movements or plans , and as yet no circum
stances surrounding his death upon which to
found conjectures are known on this side.

HEHMN , Sept. 15. Invested with as much
of pomp and circumstance of war as can bo
associated with an experiment , the mimic
campaign around Munchberg proceeds
vigorously. The kaiser's enthusiasm has in
fected the officers and men. All reports
concur as to the admirable behavior of the
troops , the display of masterly tactics by the
cnerals , and the splendor of the campaign
us a spectacle. The public is surfeited with
these accounts , and the kaiser's playing at
war has ceased to interest the people , yet the
whole nation is gratified to see that his un
tiring physical energies arc equal to his
zeal. Any doubt arising from un
friendly rumors regarding the emperor's
icalth 1ms bsen dispelled by his severe
bodily exertion from early morning until
light , and by tho'keen mental activity dis-
ilaycd by him. Ho is everywhere on the
field at critical moments , and attends to the
minutest details. The battle cndoJ , he
groups his ofllcers around him and gives a
critique on the day's maneuvers , leaving
rinco Albert , the chief umpire of the ma
neuvers , to give nominal assent. Distin
guished amongst the foreign visitors are the
Archduke Albrecht , of Austria , and the
Granduko Nicholas , or Russia. The Arch
duke Albrecht has had an especially cordial
reception from the emperor and Gorman
generals , partly on account ot his rcinte as
a leader of the war party. Doing desirous of
divesting his presence at the maneuvers
of a political aspect , the Arch
duke Albrecht has caused the
soml-olllclal press to state that ho repudiates
all connection with politics ; that he is neither
a peace nor a war man , and that his only aim
is to obey the orders of his commander.
Army circles do not take this denial seri
ously. At the close of the day's work the
emperor dines with thirty guests.
The press notes with lively satisfaction
that thocmporor , coinciding with tha general
official cffpyt to suppress the use of the
French janguige , has orderol that the
monusbff couched entirely in Gorman. The
word "menu" becomes now "speisokarten.
The Kalnoky-Uismarck conference opens
on Monday. Count Kalnoky will leave Vienm
to-morrow and will bo the guest of Prince
Dlsmarck for ssvcral days. Count Herberl
Bismarck will take in the interviews between
the chancellor and Count Kalnoky. The con
fcrcnco Is thought to bo n new move on the
part of Bismarck : to Austrian support for a
project to reconcile the qulrinal and Vatican
to assist him In the strugclo with the Gor
man clericals and to make memorublo Einpe
ror William's visit to Rome.
The Strossmayor incident , disclosing the
growth of the pro-Russian sympUhy through
out Austria's Slavonic provinces , Is hailed in
BOrlln as tending to cause Austria to fee
the absolute necessity for a Gorman alliance
which will result In the secured dominion o
Prineo Bismarck over the Austrian policy
It is believed that whatever Prince
Bismarck's plans are regarding the aiapacy
Count Kaluoky will bo constrained to con
cur. Premier Crispi's menaced oppositioi
will become nullified , and ho will bo forced
either to accept them or resign.
It Is expected that the Prussian budcol

wish to lessen property taxation.

FRENCH MILITARY MANEUVERS.
A Splendid Inhibition of Cavalry A
1'loaNlni ; Incident.
[ CiistyrtuM.sss by Jamil ( linlnn nuwtt , }
PAIIIS , Sept. 15. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to Tin : HUE. ] The military
maneuvers arc now coming to a close. Those
of the Third army corps In Normandy took
place in the same valley that was once the
scene of a campaign of Kichnrd Coeucr do
Leon against the French An invading
army of two divisions of the
Third corps cipturcd Kouen mid
a review was hold there at which
Mr. MncLnnc , the minister at Paris , was
present and testitlcd most warmly to the ef
llciency and line nppaaranco of the troops.
But the great military feature of the war
was the cavalry maneuvers that ended Mon
day , tit Chalons , when for the first time in
France an army corps of cavalry , altogether
eighteen cavalry regiments , or seventy-two
squadrons , were united for instruction
under one command. General DoGullitit
in the next war will attempt the role achieved
by General Sheridan in America. German
officers say the war of 1SCO was won by the
i infantry , the war of 1870 by artillery and the
next war by the cavalry. All agree that the
first shock of the contending armies in the
next war will ba a tremendous
cavulry battle. Euah nation will ,
the very instant war is declared ,
launch IN entire cavalry foroa into the ene
my's country to prevent mobilization and
concentration. These vast herds or cavalry
will undoubtedly como into collision and the
result will bo a cavalry battle of such vital
importance that whoever wins it will be
pretty certain to como out victor In the whole
war taken altogether. The experiences
at Chalons shows u decided improvement in
the French cavalry. Out of 10,00) ) horse 500
were thrown out of service. This is not tin
unusual number , but It might be re
duced , for four-llfttis of the horses
indlsponiblcs were made so by be
ing kicked by other horses. A
little Judicious training would readily re
move this difficulty. It has long been urged
by French officers that a fifth of the squad
rons of the cavalry regiments which to-day
are simply depot squadrons should bo trans
formed into service squadrons to servo with
their regiments in the field. It is also
urged that the French cavalry bo
kept parmancntly mobilized as the German
cavalry is. An incident which causes much
good feeling in military circles throughout
Franco took place a few days ago at the
Chateau do James , near Villambhird , in the
Department Dordogne , the residence of
General Dehrontschef , ex-chiof of staff to
the late General Skobeloff. The Ono Hund
red and Eighth regiment of the line were
returning from the maneuvers to their bar
racks in Hergorae. As they marched past
the Chateau do James , General Dobrotnschcf
and Mine Dehrontschef were sitting on the
terrace. When the colors of the regiment
appeared the general advanced and raised
his hat. The colonel commanded the Rus
sian national anthem to bo played. General
Dobroutschcf then stopped forward and sa
luted the colonel of the regiment. A halt
was ordered. General Debrontschof then
passed along the regiment with the colonel
and shook hands cordially with
all the ofllcers. The general then ordered
his maltro do hotel to bring out 500 bottles of
wlno and place them at the disposal of the
soldiers. Mine. Do Brontschef then invited
the colonel of the regimental staff and
ono officer of each grade to dinner at 7
o'clock. General Patirou do Boisllucry , the
brigade commanders , and his staff were also
present nt dinner. The Ono hundred and
eighth regiment proceeded to Bergerac with
most enthusiastic souvenirs of the hospital
ity of General Skobclotl's chief of staff.

Inblo Sncelnl to Tin : Bnc.l Dr. Paul
Gabicr , the young physician whoso investiga-
Ions of the anti-cholera system of Lr. ) Fcrran
were described In the Herald at the time of
he lbS5 epidemic In Valencia , leaves Franco
next Saturday for Florida , whore he intends
studying yellow fever. Ho goes with an
oftlclal mission from the French government.
ast j car ho made an exhaustive inquiry
ate the subject In Cuba and in a report read
the other day before the Paris academy of
medicine , expressed his conviction that the
microbe of yellow fever differed little from
the cholera bacillus and like it was almost
nv.iriably found In the Intestines. The
writer , who was with the young French
savant in IbW , had a long interview with
him yesterday.
' 1 shall settle down in Jacksonville for the
time being , " said lie , ' 'and have another
unit for the microbe , but I don't expect to
hid it anywhere but in the-intestines. My
uelief is that ycUqjv fever is nualngous to
cholera. "
'Knowing the conclusions you formed after
your experiments with lr. Ferran's anti-
cholera views , I suppose you do not believe
n inoculation being n preventive of yellow
fevori'1
"I do not. I tried the system upon myself
in Havanna without good results and with
some results which gave mono wish to repeat
the test. Kepeatcd microscopic examinations
showed me no yellow fever microbes in the
blood. For conscience sake , however , I in
oculated myself with the microbe which Dr.
Ferron had shown us In Paris , andj which wo
have since studied together. The first expert
mcnt was not followed by any accident , but a
subcutaneous Injection , which I tried a week
afterwards , laid me up and produced alarm-
inir symptoms 1"
"What do you think of Dr. Gamalla ! "
"I think it is n moro repetition of Dr. For-
rau's idea and Is Just as mistaken. The
medical authorities are on the wrong track.
If Dr. Gumalia wore right Dr. Koch's Ideas
would bo upset altogether. "
"How do you explain yellow fever , doc-
tori"
"My Idea is that yellow fever i a local af
fection of which the first cause Is a devel
opment of microbes in the Intestines. It
nourishes only under peculiar conditions of
climate , race and temperament. "
"What treatment do you suggest for iU"
"Tho general treatment consists In keeping
up the strength of the patient and in carcfa
watohings. The action of strychnine , alcoho
and champagne will , In some cases , bo found
useful , but local treatment is by far the most
important point. At the very outset it is
necessary to prescribe purgatives. The first
day the patient should bo given thirty-live to
forty-five grammes of sulphate of soda. The
next ho should take forty to fifty grammes
Carter's oil in two or three doses. On the
third day ono gramme of calomel might
bo administered. The prescriptions shoulil
be varied in this way for a week ,
If the patient vomits the quantity thrown uf
should bo again administered with n little
ice. In at least ono Instance I can vouch for
the patient having been cured after ho hail
been given up. lie was in n semi-comatose
state. The Intestines should bo treated like
on Infected wound by cleaning and disinfect
ing. When I was in West India a doctor
handed over n desperate case to mo to try
my method on , telling mo at the same time
that even if I fulled it would bo
no argument against my theory. The
antiseptics I tried were bichloride of mer
cury and schlorohydriao lemonade. The
treatment proved successful. Of course , ono
cure proved little. It does prove , though ,
that there is a chance of success. If it were
not unscientific to do so , I should speak moro
positively. I shall repeat my experiment at
Jacksonville , and I have great hope that the
result will not bo u disappointment. "

Duo do Charles , the Grand Duke Nicholas ,

situation In France. His remarks Interest

Ho says : "Tlio struggle is now moro tlmn
ever confined to the discontented party which
calls Itself conservative and that contented
people who fancy they arc republicans. "
The I'alulsc Industrie Is now 0110 of the
liveliest places hi 1'arls. The societies sail-
votagetho marltltno nuil tradesmen ol 1'nris ,
have taken possession of the vast building.
The Interior U transformed into a great pond
four feet deep. Cnnoes , from the tradi
tional birch bark hunting canoe of the north
American Indians to the latest cnnvns
holding invention of the day , are
about where- the statuary is exhibited during
the salon. Tsignnes , wearing their Inevita
ble red Jackets and sounding vigorously their
irrepressible instruments , lloat about in largo
flat bottomed boats , amid n dozen or
two of great white swans. Aquatic
clowns struggle with unbalanc.iblo pens-
salres and splash about In the water.
Floating mattresses and beds meander
about on the surface lazily paddled by
mulatto Bailors. All sorts of steam launches
uro moored to the railway and every now
and then a pretty little shot ) girl or young
cletk will i-addlo or row about in this
Parisian lake. The American and
English tourists put in an appearance.
They look at the unbreakable china ,
they go to the man , who for
a franc lets you take your own photo
graph , they try French beer ; some of it is
excellent , by the way. Then they go to the
Sixteenth Century chemist's shop filled with
stufTc'ft snakes , eagles , vultures and reptiles ,
from anacondas down to toads. One of tno
prettiest sights is a garden that has been ar
ranged in the famous salon. Cano , grass
palm trees and geraniums have taken the
place of the huge allegorical works of Hou-
gorean and Carmin , The entire building is
filled with Hags , balloons , parachutes , light
houses and all sorts of machinery. The
whole thing is in true Parisian tusto and well
worth seeing. You can buy anything there
from a steamship down to a toothpick.
Although the supply of gatno this year Is
inferior by one-third to that at the opening
last year , the woods around Paris resound
with perfect fusilades of guns. What they
find to shoot at heaven only knows. Par
tridges never were so scarce and even the
rabbits have been destroyed in-largo iiumbci
by floods and the quail have sought other
climes to avoid the cold weather. Phcasai t
are abundant but as a rule are restricted to
largo princely preserves , the dernier mot of
the Parisian huntsman. The fashionable
costume do chasse is very , very short , of
of dark velvet. It reaches scarcely to the
knees and falls in folds like a High
land kilt. The corsage is a bas
que laced to the waist by a
leather belt provided with cartridges
but no collar. No sleeves even uro worn.
Under the kilt is worn loose velvet breeches
which como below the knee whore they are
met by brown gaiters sparkling with little
silver buttons. The shoes have thick soles.
A little round felt hat with a feather and
buckskin gloves completes the costuuio.
A meeting has Just been held at Mcndon to
protest against the woods of Mcndon
Clamart and other favorite pleasure haunts
of Parisians being leased out to wealthy
German barons , popularly suspected of being
agents of the German government. M. 13am-
berger hired of the French govern
ment 1,000 hectares of the forest of
Mcndon for 0,000 francs n year.
The government requires the lessee of the
chasse to protect the game by wlro fences.
Hambcrgcr kept the fences up at his own ex
pense as the law requires. Now the govern
ment Is asked to annul the lease by a society
called La Leguo des I3ois do Paris. Speeches
were made not only against the wire fences ,
but against the game keepers. One
orator cited the following instance of their
cruelty. Three young women , accompanied
by their young men , wore walking rojontly
in the 13ois Mcndon. The three young
women came to a little lake. It was a very
hot day. Thrco young women removed ,
one by ono , all their articles of
wearing apparel until , clothed only
In their majesty , they plunged Into
the hike and took a swim. As soon as they
wore in the water the gama If copers appeared
and in the most heartless manner actually
carried away the three young women's
dresses. The orator concluded by demand
ing the suppression of all game hoopers.

NOIITII ADAMS , Mass. , Sept. 15. A terrible
disaster was narrowly averted In the Hoosao
tunnel this afternoon , when sixty-nine work
men employed In the tunnel were overcome
by coal gas from a passing locomotive. After
the last engine had passed through the tunnel
the flagman reported to Overseer iMcG rath
that the trackmen In the 3.000 feet section
and the clectrio light men In the 0,000 feet
section were overcome. Express No. 3i : had
Just entered the tunnel and McGrath ordered
It flagged , which proved a wise precaution.
A rescuing party was then organized and the
men were found lying on and along the track
some partially and some wholly overcome.
Had the express train entered the slaughter
must have been terrible. It Is thought that
two of the cases will prove fatal.

Special to TUB Buc.l The Kaiser is away
from Berlin so much now and the weather
has been in the main so pleasant that Berlin
s as drowsy from Insufficient circulation as
t Is on n hot July day. The Kaiser stirred

ilthcrlo had too much of the barbaric to bo
successful. It Is doubtful whether imperial
Kitronago will make it successful now.
Carl Scliur/ , who is detained at Kiel by
non-recovery from a severe illness , has come
.o the relief of tlio dull season with his sensi
ble answer to ono of the many scandalous
ibcls on American politics which have been
so frequent of Into in the Gorman papers.
Party lies , ho says , are accepted as good ,
mid nn American story , to bo believed , need
only to bo the grossest exaggeration. Schura
seems to bo n good deal Irritated by the com-
nents on America that ho has read anil
icard In the past few months , and repels
with some bitterness tlio old story that the
iobden club is spending -10,000,000 marks to
advance American free trade ; also that load-
ng American statesman get $100 a day for
campaign speeches. Finally , Schuri has
many pleasant things to say ol the
American people. He denies emphatically
that money , to the exclusion of honesty and
principles , makes the political mare go.
Another American has proposed a now
Amcriccn church in Berlin , and is jccitlng
mach Interest , because of the rumor thai
Mrs. Cleveland will partly withdraw her pat
ronage and with other prominent lenders
will do nothing. Tlio whole matter has been
placed in the hands of n rctru *
ular American committee. A printed letter i
from Mr. Carpenter , an old resident of Berlin ,
expresses the feeling of n certain portion of
Berlin's permanent colony unfortunately of
that portion which is the best able and most ;
willing to subscribe for church matters. la
spite of the excellent work ho has done hero
I Jr. Stuckcnborg , as tills letter shows , scorns
to have aroused much personal opposition.
It takes its stand on the demand for on
American committee , which is to take charge
of church construction and the appointment
of ministers.

order to procure tlio passage of laws benclU
cial to the working men. In speaking of tha
object of lo-dny's meeting Chairman Hurley
unid to a reporter :
"There are 25,000 railroad employes In Illi
nois , counting these in the transportation dot
partmont and ommittlng clerks and officers.
Probably not moro than one-third of thcso
vote regularly or pay any attention to poli
tics. After a man is on his cngino or tram
on election day he doesn't take the trouhla
to voto. Since the ( J strike wo hiivn been
thinking mid have como to tlio conclusion
that It Is to our Interest to vote. Wo pro-
paso to organi/e all railroad men for political
action and secure , If wo can , the repeal
of the conspiracy laws , wnlcli
menace the constitutional rights o
citUons and particularly worklngmcn. We !
want also the repeal of the co-employe act ,
which prevents a workingman from getting
damages when Injured through the negli
gence of a follow employe. Wo will decide )
upon a plan of action to-day and then wo will
open negotiations with the different candi
dates for governor. Tlio ono who will plodga
himself to further our Interests will get our

Is true. Wo will vote for the man who will
