BKIU.IN , Marcht ! . The recall from Samoa
of llerr iCmippc , thu German consul , has
boon promptly followed by the despatch of
Herr Stottbol , formerly consul general at
Copenhagen , to replace him. Herr Stcubel ,
after an Interview with Ulsmarck , left for
Hamburg under instiuctions to reach Samoa
by the quickest route. Stoubel's mission is a
tpcclnl one. Ills position in consular service
entitles him to n better post than Samoa , but
if his piesenco there is followed by harmon
ized relations \\itli America ho will obtain a
higher rank , It is expected in ofilclal ciro'es
that complete concord will be established as
soon as President Harrison's cabinet be-
comc-i famlllaripcd with the incidents causing
the disputes.

The emperor dined to night with General
von Scliellendorf , minister of war. The im
perial presence is taken as a contradiction of
the reports of the retirement of Von Schel-
lendorf , owing to continued conflicts with
Count Walderscc. The report that \Valder-
sco was about to retire arose irom the over
tures of Uismarck toward his acceptance of
a high diplomatic post , .stated to bo Vienna ,
in succession to Prince Henry , of Heuss ,
upon whoso discretion the chancellor cannot
rely. Count Waldersco declined placing him
self within the grip of Prince Uismarck , and
losing whatever hold his daily contact with
the emperor gives Jiim.
Dr. Von Stoecker remains hosprcdiger
under a pledge , it is said , to abandon his
Judonhctze. His speech during Thursday's
debate in the landtag on Dr. Wimlthorst's
motion regarding religious teaching in
primary schools was applauded by the mem
bers of all tlio government groups. His
main contention was that surveillance over
the schools was already largely vesteff with
the clergy , who co-operated in supervising
without infringing upon the control of the
Btato , Ho ridiculed the idea that a layman
could not be entrusted with religious teach
ing , and denounced Dr. Windthorst's pro
posals as a negation of the prin
ciples of healthy education and hostile
to religious peace. The speech is
assisting in his restoration to favor. In some
quarters the center party was disappointed
over the reception of the proposals , which it
was hoped would secure progressist support
on the ground that they tended to a separa
tion of the church and state. Sir Churchill
practically spoke to this effect , declaring
that religious teaching ought to bu the ex
clusive function of the clergy , Lut ho reject
ed the clerical scheme ns placing the school
under the influence of the church. Dr.
WimUhorst , recognising the violation of the
center , predicted the future acceptance of
the proposal.

riGort's SUICIDIO.
It Create * n Profound Sensation
TIn-.lTi'ili nit lOn gin nd.
Loviiov , March 3. A dispatch received
this afternoon from Madrid removes nil
doubt that the sulcido was Plcott. His Iden
tity has been fully established by the ofllelnls
of the liritisti embassy Pigott's suicide has
caused a profound sensation throughout
England. Witnesses have started from
Purls for Madrid for the purpose of form
ally identifying the body.
It is learned this nftr-rnoon that the tele
gram Pigott sent from Madrid Thursday to
Soamcs' ofllco In this city was addressed to
Shannon , Times' solicitor , not to "Ponson-
bay" an llrst reported. On receipt of the
telegram Soarnes notilled the police of the
whereabouts of Pigott. Shannon , who was
about to take his departure for Ireland ,
wrote to Pigott , denying that ho had prom
ised him money. Thu police induced Soames
not to send Shannon's letter and the clerk
in Soames' ofllce , In order to detain Pigott In
Madrid , wrote him n letter saying Shannon
was in Ireland and that when he returncM to
London the money ho asked for would bo
sent him.
Besides Pigott's checkbook , n letter ad
dressed to Lnbnuchcre and a license to carry ,
arms in Ireland wajc found on his body. The
letter addressed to Labouchcio was closed
and ready for mailing. In it Pigott
says that the fiist batch of letters
sold by him to the Times were genuine , but
that In the second bitch there were several
forged letters , including two ascribed to
Parncll , and one each to Davltt , O'Kolly and
Egnn. Pigott further says :
' I am deeply sorry for all those I have in
jured , and am ready to place at their dis
posal all the means in my power to remedy
all I have said that was false. Everything
written under oath was true. "
A check book of the Ulster bank was also
found on the body. Pipott tried to negotiate
the check at n Madrid bank , but in the ab
sence ofpioof of his identity the bank ic-
fused to uish it. A note book full of inter
esting notes was also found.
The Civil Service.
WASHINGTON , March 2. The president to
day , in transmitting to 'congress the report of
the civil service commissions , says : ' 'The
cause of civil service reform , which in a great
degree is intrusted to the commission , I re
gard aa so ilrmly established and its value so
fully demonstrated , that I should deem it
more gratifying than useful if at this late
day , in a session of congress , I was permitted
to enlarge upon its importance and present
its condition. A perusal of the report here
with submitted will furnish information of
the progress which has been made during the
year to which it relates , in the extension of
the operations of this reform , and in the im
provement of its methods and rules. There
is cause for congratulation that watcluul-
ness , care and fidelity to its purposes arc all
that are necessary to Insure to the govern
ment and our people all the benefits which its
inauguration promised. "

WASHINGTON , March 2. The Indications nt
present are that there will bo more people la
the city on inauguration day than on any
nrovious occasion. Visitors crowded the
streets nnd public buildings all day , the cap
ital and whllo house being the principal
points of attraction. Many military and
civicorrfanizitlons arrived and paraded the ,
principal thoroughfares. The crowded
streets nnd marching soldiers gave the city a
holiday appearance , and Interfered , to some
extent with tlio ordinary transaction of
business. Nearly all trains were delated ,
and they followed each other so closely that
several blockades occurred ,

Tlio demand for seats in the senate

[ Cnpvi told issy liu JHIIIC * ( inntiin H
Los no v , March - ' . | > ow York Hcrnltl
Cable Special to TmlUic. : | Of course the
Glndstonlans know they \vcro sure to bo
boatcn on Friday nljfht , but perhaps the
strength of tlio majority surprised them.
The truth is thnt Mr. Morloy's nmciidmcnt
was not skillfully drawn if Its object was to
invite liny support frorii the outsiUo. There
was a sweeping vote of censure on the gov
ernment for all its nets , ly t anil present ,
and had it been carried the ministry must
have followed. Many members of the union
ist party object to the rough treatment of tlio
Irish prisoners , but they are not prepared to
precipitate another dissolution upon the
country. No man , however independent in
spirit , can bo expected to rebel to
that extent against his party
and his constituency. A resolution
condemning the treatment of the Irish pris
oners and indefinite postponement of the
local government bill for Ireland would have
been far more menacing to the ministry.
Some unionists could ) not li.ivo brought
themselves to vote agaaist that. The gen
era ! position of ths comlmtunts remains there
fore , wha't it .was bof&ro. Neither side is
much olatcd or much depressed.
The debate was not-d particularly good
one. Tlio honors wore teamed oft by Mr.
Gladstone , who made a truly amazing speech
of two hours and a quarter in length , full of
animation , studded all O er with sharp points
against his adversaries ) tuid abounding with
dramatic touches , which5 the most consum
mate actor in the world Inight have envied.
It is wonderful that a man in his
eightieth year Should bo able
to endure the ( | physical fatigue
of delivering so important a speech , not tak
ing into account at all tbe marvelous faculty
of composing extemporaneously over so long
a time , for ho used vti ? 'few notes , . . In the
grand parliamentary.jriunney-'b'f thereto days
there was no onb to1 approach Mr. Glad
stone. His face is full of expression. There
is dignity in his bearing and manner which
assuredly tlio now school can novur hope to
rival. . Differ widely from him as some of us
may , wo must all feel that when he is gone
wo shall never see hjs like again.
The next greatest impression was pro
duced by the short but remarkable speech of
Mr. Parncll. He rose a few minutes after
11 and delivered with much more emphasis
than is usual with him , a pungent ,
forcible , but withal singularly moderate
address. Ho evidently had the general
election , whenever it may como , well before
his mind ; hence his declaration that a
scheme may bo devised to give Ireland the
management of her own affairs , leaving
England to adopt suoh safeguards as she
might deem necessary .for her own protec
tion and security. There need not bo the
slichtest shadow of danger or risk * to the
interests of the empire. All this is well
calculated to produoo the greatest effect on
tlio popular mind , and especially at this
moment , when Mr. Parnoll stands vindi
cated from an abominable charge concocted
by u professional blackmailer and forger.
A most dangerous speech , said the union
ists , one to another , when Parncll sat down ,
and doubtless it 'is so for thiiin , but
the most striking' , incident after all
in connection with this debate
was the extraordinary recaption Mr.
Parnoll meet with when ho rose to speak to
see Mr. Gladstone get up in his place and
bow to the Irish leader , followed by nearly
all the party. It was indeed a curious spec
taclo. If the queen had entered the house
Gladstone and his friends could not have
more , Sir George Trcvolyau , Mr. Fowler and
one or two more remained seated ; otherwise
the whole Gladstonian party made an
obulsauco to the uncrowned king. Mr , Glad
stone bowed low and repeated , it more than
onto. Lord Hartlngton never moved nn eye
brow or muscle. His head reclined on the
back of his scat , a" usual , and ho seemed en
tirely unconscious ofyhat was going on , It
takes a good deal to arouse Him from his
lethargy ; In fact , I have never seen it done.
Ho Is the embodiment pf British sang froid.
Certainly , if anything could astonish him it
would be to sea the aged loader of the lib
eral party making reference to Mr , Parnnll
such as is reserved fo'rii'HOVcreigii. ,
The whirligig of time does verily bring
round its revenges , * Mr. Parnell himself
seemed utterly unconcerned. All receptions
neemed to como allko'td'kim. He has endured
calumny and can pufupSvith adulation. No
doubt , however , ho has'lm feeling like other
men , only ho never lot'them l/o scctn. Ho is
a sort of Lord Hartlrigtfm in his way , the
only two men In.the' house wljoso * counten
ances toll no tales. Mr ; ' Chamberlain goes
in for the same Una of business , but ho can
only supply an Imitation article , Bal'our
also cultivates an Imperturb.iUo manner , but
it is a good deal inferior. ' Ho Is always fidget
ing about , tying his lortjrleg * In a knot and
untying them again , As for Mr.
Goschcn , misery und nervousness
are depleted on every line of his face. It is
to bo hoped that ho enjoys himself some
times , but no ono'would ever guess It.
The most uproarious cheering during the
whole week was eVokoU by the appearance of
Dr. Tanner. Ho has een dodgjng the Irish
police BO lonir that lie > was al
most forgotten , but lie was de
termined that his , vote should not
bo lost to his party on any important night ,
so ho was smuggled into the house and sud
denly stood before his countryman and col
leagues , who burst into wild yull of delight
when they saw him. The 'doctor was curtly
headed and radiant , and took a corner in a
position where'UuHour could see and admire
him. His derisive-snorts at the Irish secre
tary were frequent during the rest of the
evening , although Half our got slightly
the best of it. Tanner was bag *
gcd , but ho cast his vote first.
He hnd a triumphant procession home , and
there the Uulfourlan minions pounced down
upon film.
Thus the parliamentary \ycok ended , and
wtmt n week it has been. One of the Times'
witnesses dies mysteriously lit his bad , an
other flics from the country and puts an end
to his Ufa with his own hand , the whole case
of the Times collapses , Parnoll receives the
honors of a moment from the liberal party ,
and Tanner goes to jail. Truly the fates
have mixed togctor a great variety of ingre
dients to stimulate the jaded palates.

LONDON' , March U. [ New Voik Herald
Cable Special to Tun line. ] The London
edition will to-morrow publish the following
letter :
"Sir M. Christian : In the Christian
World of February 21 wo road with much
sympathy the following statement In promi
nent type , of what Dr. Parker wants :
"First , the total abolition of nil texts of
oithodoxy. of all written cards , standards
and catechism ? , as largely responsible for
the infidelity and hypocrisy of the world.
"Second , the entire secession of the low
church Evangelical party from a church
whoso creed is neither evangelical nor pro-
"This declaration sounded to us like a
large utterance of older gods , a divine air
seemed in store for the theological world ,
but it ainicars to us that our Instructive sym
pathy with the champion of free thought en
abled us to read belwcon the lines. Then
the history of the city temple flashed upon
us. The community of Calvinlsts Independ
ents was founded in 1532. Their chapel in
Poultry Chcapsido was built in 1S17 and mit
in trust in 1S33 for the use of that body of
Protestant dissenters called Calvinlsts Inde
pendents , but shortly after the inauguration
of Dr. Parker's ministry in 1S7J the Poultry
chnpcl was sold under authority of the char
ity commissioners for 50,000 , and with the
proceeds or some portion thereof , the city
temple was built as wo have duly ascer
tained at the chanty commission. Why not
go to the record oftlce and see if there is
there any text of orthodoxy , written creed
or standard from which Dr. Parker Is secretly
groaning for release i The courtesy of at
tendants soon procured us a sight of the
trust deed which was duly enrolled Novem
ber 2J , 18S2. Provision Is made in it for the
election of a pastor by a majority of tliu com
municants , for tlio sale of property and trans
ference of worship to another building , as
has been done , and for seculariration at any
time of tno chapel by a vote of two-thirds of
the communicants. Finally the trustees are
to permit to ofllciato such person or persons
of Protestant dissenters who shall bo of
Calvinistio persuasion , and hold religious
trusts contained in tlio assembley's cate
chism and the confession of faith drawn up
by the Westminster assombley of divines in
104" . Assuming , therefore , that Dr. Parker
has not yet gone to parliament for a new
trust deed duly provided for the change of
habitation. Well , what then ? Why there
lies- before us a copy of the confession of
faith with the longer and shorter catechism
and other documents. By a curious
coincidence it Is stuffed full of footnotes ,
scholistlc glasses and scripture proofs.
From tins copy of Dr. Parker's inarching or
ders we make a few extracts to show that he
deserves the support of all right thinking
men in his veiled reuelion against the
shackles and fetters of olden times. First
this , that the author of the somewhat revo
lutionary exhortation to evangelicals to como
out and be separate from the church of out
worn creeds himself his fast bound in the
misery and castiron of calvanism with its
catechisms which grammatically and histor
ically interpreted declare the souls of the
wicked shall bo cast into hell where they re
main in most grievous torment of body and
soul without intermission for ever and ever.
There is no salvnMon for those who
are not Christians bo they never so diligent
to frame their lives according to the light of
nature and the law of that religion they pro
fess , and to assert and maintain that they
may , is very pernicious and dctestiblc. Uy
decree of God for the manifestation of His
glory men and angels are foreordained to
everlasting death. The number of such is so
certain and definite that it cannot be cither
increased or diminished. The wicked , ( or
their former sins , God doth bind and harden.
From them ho withholds His grace whereby
they might bo enlightened in their under
standing , and' exposes them to such objects
as their corruption makes occasion of
sin. Civil magistrates have authority to
see that the truth of God bo kept pure and
that all hcresv bo suppressed. Ho has , also ,
the power to call synods and to retain or re
mit sins.
There is a good deal more , but enough has
been stated to furnish debate or questions
for the next working men's conference. At
the same time if , as Dr. Parker argues , tlio
texts of orthodoxy's written creeds and cate
chisms are largely responsible for the inn-
delltv and hypocricy of tlio world , he should
cither resign or , us a Bensltlvo admirer
would suggest , go to parliament ana humbly
beg leave to burn them.

schoolboys arc fond of talking of
revolting against their masters. However
sucli as occurred yesterday at the Lycee
Louis Lo Grand is an uncommon event. The
boys of the upper schools had been long on
bad terms with M. Antoine , their repedcteur ,
a cross between a master and an usher. His
unpopularity was duo to his exceeding stern
ness. Thursday the discontent broke out
into open rebellion. The upper schoolboys
trooped down to the dining hall singing.
Yesterday morning thu head master sent for
tlio ring leaden , llvoln number , and expelled
them. When this became known the whole
school was in a state of ferment. Messen
gers were observed darting across the yards ,
and at a signal the boys of the upper , middle
and junior schools struck up cnss of "cous-
puez" coupled with the names of the musters
in the dining hall. Tlio boys bo .tu to break
plates and smash window panes. Twenty-
six boys have been sent to their homes , und
the parents of the other of the upper school
Doys have been asked to withdraw thelrsons.
Tills , meantime , has put an end to the rebel
lion that has excited some concern in Pans ,

it was cold tea , and with u ringing voice MI id j

common cause with the avowed enemies of
