And neither of the elements would tolerate tlio govern ment of Houlnngor. Franco Is approaching ono of her historical crises , which occur at Intervals , but the new mnatcr will rot bo Hotilnngcr.

"An to a Franco-Gorman war , Franco will not talto the Initiative. Her millions of peas ants know too well what war means. Tlio real danger lies In the cxuitablo and erratic character of the German cmporor , whoso violent nature is apt at any moment to niako Europe burst into war. Franco Is far stronger and inoro urcpared than Is sup posed ; her strength is particularly in her great artillery , Certainly no nation has Mr command of llnanclal resources. " Kefcrring to his recent book on America O'Hell expressed great dissatisfaction with the conduct of the Now York Worldjn an ticipating its publication. "Thcro Is something decidedly shady in the so-called journalistic feat of tlio World which has been taking to itself an immense nmount of credit for doing something which n dozen other newspapers might have clone , had they been willing to stoop to that sort of thing. It is customcry for publishers to furnish the press with advance sheets of forthcoming works , and there is n unwritten law to the effect that only brief selections from thcso sheets shall bo used. In their published review the World people , however , ' 'saw lit to break the law and published every thing they could lay hands on. "There may bo n question whether this was a very honorable thing. I have no rea son to complain of the sales of my book , which amount , so far , to S5,000 volumes at f 1.50 each. I expect to return to the United Stales next January , when I shall visit the great west , possibly with a view of writing another book. I urn always treated so kindly In America that it will give mo great pleas ure to go back tliis summer. 1 am thinking of traveling with my family on tlio conti nent and , of course , I shall visit the exposi tion , although I do not enjoy life in Paris at such times.

[ Now York Herald Cable Special to Tin : Hin. : I The votes taken iti the senate last week on the military law are of considerable importance. The senate again adopted the amendments which were jnndo to tlio law when it llrst came up from the chamber ol deputies and which tlio latter Body refused to rcccpt. This disagreement between the senate and the cham ber relates to dispensations from the military service. The souuto wishes to grant nil absolute dispensation of two years to the oldest sons of widows and other iinolagous situations , but the chamber Insists that tno granting of this dispensation shall bo loft to the discretion of the military commissions. On the other hand the chnmbor had sup pressed the party dispensations allowed these who wore preparing to becoino teachers or to follow certain other liberal pursuits not Including these who were studying for the clerical profession. Thcso dispensations have been introduced into law by the senate n the face of the strenuous opposition of the minister of the interior mid the president of tlio council. As amended by the senate , the military law runs a strong chnnca of not being adopted by tlio chamber. The seuato cut out of the bill the very provisions Unit the majority of the chamber had most nt heart. This latter body has shown for less concern about the real Interests of the nrmy than it has aboul the political Interests involved. The llrst ulm was to pass n law that seemed to smack of democratic equalizing principles , am that should apply , with the ut most severity , the formula that wouli let priests shoulder knapsacks. It was especially desirous that young men , intended for the liberal professions should bo forced to Interrupt their studies Ii order to vcgetato , during three years , in thi nrmy barracks , oven though the military In st ruction was practically complete at the cm of the llrst year. The senate refused to fal In with thcso 111-concolvcd ideas of equality The unanimous opinion of all competent uu tboritics is that a military service of three years to bo Inuiosed , without distinction or discrimination on all the youths of the country , would Indict u mortal blow to Intellectual Interests by lowerlnt the standard of French Intolll 0CUCO. As for these who desire to follow a clerical career It docs not seem to bo tlio intention of thoio who framed the lav , to moke soldiers of them. They would prob ably make very i > oor combatants , but might perhaps , bo of real value in the hospitals but a thrcoycurs' apprenticeship U not ncces lary in oruer to become a hospital assistant It is , therefore , without any plausible mo live , but only a spirit of Intolerance , that the republicans in the chamber wish to Impose three years' service on seminary students ' 1100 considerations huvo had some weigh with the senate , but will uot flud favor with the chamber , THE CLIJAllANGR 1U2COUO.

( Special Tele gram to Tin : lieu. | - I'lio pcoplo of Wyoming nro nt last v/akir.K up to the necessity for united exertion in securing statehood. At the last session o' congress a bill was unani- nously reported to the senate by the senate committee on territories , under the pro visions of which it is proposed to net. As soon as a general demand is made , Governor Warren will issue a call for a constitutional convention. The delegates will bo elected at. an election to bo held on the second Mon day in July. Under the provisions of the bill the num ber of delegates is limited to llfty-ilvo. The apportionment is made on the basis of the vote cast for delegates in congress at the last election , and is made by tlio governor , chief justice and secretary of the territory. The convention then moots hero on the first Monday in September , anu after adopting a constitution , submits the same to the pcoplo on the llrst Tuesday in November , when state ofllcers will bo voted for should the constitutional convention so decide. There was nt ticst some opposition to the movement because it was feared it would increase taxation , but ns the subject is being bettor understood the people are wheeling into line and eagerly demanding that imme diate steps bo taken. Tlio uncertainty of congressional action is recognized , and as congress is now favorably dispossd , It is thought best to strike while thu iron is hot. Everybody realizes that statehood will as sist materially iu development ; that the credit of a permanent form of irovcrnuient Is better established than a provisional form ; that cheap money can bo had and foreign capital Is more readily invested. As it now stands , tlio territory itself can own compara tively little property. Its public institutions must bo maintained either by direct taxa tion or by bonded indebtedness. Under the act of congress the latter cannot exceed ! per cent of the territory's assessable valua tion. Kach territory admitted to statehood receives from the government a bequest of public lands to maintain state institutions , and tlio senate bill is fairly liberal to Wy oming in this respect. The business of tlio territory Is expected to receive a great impetus through the state hood movement. Tlio Development of Wyoming. . Wyo. , May 10. [ Correspond ence of Tun lii ) : : . ] The recent , snow fall hero has been of great benefit to stockmen , ns the ground was becoming very dry and tlio prospects for n good grass crop were poor. This country has undergone u very material change in tlio lust few years. Not long ago It was generally understood that the country west of tlio Missouri river wus a great big desert. That such impressions wi-ro wide of tlio truth , is attested by the fact that at Intervals nro towns and cities which would wull grace older states. I'cr- baps among these towns along tlio line of thu Union I'aclllc railway , Luramlo City Is the most beautiful und thrifty. Laramlo will furnish more glass during the next ton yours than any other city in America. There arc no glass works in tlio United Status that are situated in the midst of all glass-making material as these of Lur.imlo are. What is badly needed to bring about this result is capital the brains are hero and the mill. The cattle industry Is getting on u sounder basis , now that the cattle are owned by more persons , and , consequently , fewer to thu per son.

Mrs. Harrison's mall contains every day appeals from ofllco seekers to USD her influ ence with her husband in favor of the writers. Some of the correspondents request Mrs. Harrison to remind the president that their applications remain unanswered. They have heard nothing about thorn and fear the president has inadvertently neglected to act upon them. They beg Mrs. Harrison to look around the ofilcc for the letters or petitions and put them whcro General Harrison will bo sure to see them. Some of the letters are from women. Ono of them recently wrote that she was n widow , with three "girl children. " Her husband was killed in the war , lighting on the southern side. There was an unconscious pathos in the details of 11 poor widow's struggles to maintain and oringup , "in the fear of the Lord , " these three girl children , She wanted a postofflco paying only JX ( ) a year , and yet "it would bo a God-send to me. " Ono man wrote recently eight big letter . pages to Mrs. Harrison because ho feared that "three previous epistles of the same length addressed to your respected husband , had failed to meet ills oyo. " The letter breathed devoted piety , true republi canism , and the most pronounced prohibition sentiments , and ended up with a request for an afllco of some kind that would make lifo a little easier for a man with only ono leg. pni.AY IN rtUiixo orricus. To a gentleman who called upon him in relation to an oflico yesterday , President Harrison explained in a measure the reason for the delay in filling the oillcos against which so many of the oftlccscokcrs complain. Tlio substance of General Harrison's re marks was this : "It frequently happens that a man is pre sented as a litting candidate for an oftlco , and it is decided that ho shall have the place which ho asks. Then men learning of the probabilities will vigorously protest against the selection. In many instances these men who are protesting are entitled to considera tion. anil their protests are given the weight to which they seem to be entitled. In stead of hastening the appointment there fore , I am compelled to look into the objec tions made and thus cause delay. " The president is determined , as far as pos sible , to prevent the appointment of men whoso character is uot absolutely above re proach. Ho is perhaps over-cautious lu this regard , but owing to the many bad appoint ments which President Cleveland made through the carelessness of indorsers , Presi dent Harrison's policy is perhaps absolutely necessary. Men who como hero with strong indorsements and who expect immediate at tention to their claims are naturally cha grined on account of the delay In reaching their respective cases , but the president's explanation , while perhaps not absolutely satisfactory to the applicants , will certainly prove eminently so to the people whom these applicants desire to servo In oiHcial capacity. A C1VII , SCIIVICD QUESTION. There is a probability that the civil service commission will , this week , consider the question of whether or not the civil service rules shall bo extended to the clerical force of the census bureau. Attorney-General Miller has decided that under the law the secretary of the Interior has tlio right to make appointments in this bureau without , requesting u certified list of eligibles from the commission , but there is n disposition on the part of the civil sorvieo reformers to demand that this bureau shall bo placed on npar with the other departments. It is argued on tlio other hand that there nro hundreds of excel lent clerics who have had experience in com piling the returns from previous censuses , who would bo invaluable at the present tlmo and that their chances for securing places through the civil service commission would be exceedingly slim because of the great number of young men anxious to get into the federal service who are fresher from college and more able to answer the questions pro pounded. The delay in the appointment of a now chief for tlio bureau of engraving and print ing is likely to provoaroubloaomo to the now administration. On the 'Jlst orl2dinst. ! bids will bo opened and awards made for supply ing the bureau with the paper used in print ing the legal tender , and unless very prompt action is taken the democrats now in control will have an opportunity to reward party workers. A board designated by tlio secre tary of the treasury has supervision of this work. Crane , of Massachusetts , has fur nished tlio paper for HOIIIO time , and is said to have given satisfaction. AN ACClllKNT happened to the vault in which the plates nro locked over night on last Friday , which not only caused delay but necessitated the de struction of n portion of tlio safe. Three iockb are on the door , and ouch has its at tendant , The secretary of the treasury , tlio comptroller of the currency and tto chief of the hureau each have n representative who 1ms absolute control of ono lock , and every afternoon when all the plates are carried Into the vault the locks are operated and the great door is closed , not to bo opened uiruln till early thu next morning. On the morning in question , when the guardians of tlio treasury arrived ut their posts of duty they discovered that ono of the IOCKS had been sot to open in thirty-six instead of twelve hours. A side of the safe was torn out nml the plato reached six hours after tlio proper time. * MiMUMimi'd ntosi'KCTS. Captain Meredith remains the favorlto at the wluco house , at least among the force of clerks. A gentleman , whoso name when pronounced hounds very much like .Mere dith , culled at thti executive mansion the other day with a friend. The latter asked one of the clerks high in the councils of the ruler of our nation , who would bo given tlio bureau of engraving and printing. "What U the muno of this gentleman 1" said the clerk , pointing to Mr. Merrill. When told , ho continued , "thai sounds a great deal like It. " JUtMV MATTCIW. The system of pay accounts in the army has received considerable attention for the past two months from Paymaster-General Roch ester , who , with other oflleers of the corps , has been considering Hovcrul plans whereby the duplication of thcso accounts may bo pre vented. Ono of tlio bust reforms presented so far la that of having ono pay olllcer , to whom oBlccrd of the uimy will render their accounts , and under no circumstances will they ho allowed to present them to anyone clso unless transferred. Under the old sys tem army olllccra presented their ac counts tn the Jlrst paymaster they caiiut across. It was not un frequently the case , and especially with oftlccrs on leave , to iiiivo their accounts paid more than once , and no fault attached to the olllcer. < Jtntin r l m rniuoto frnnt'rr ' r"1" . ivlicpo the visits of the paymaster were like any other visits , and money very scarce , the ofllcors , who were obliged to keep their own accounts , frequently got ihotn mixed.

MAUQt'r.TTK , Nob. , May 1C. [ Correspondence - once of Tun Unit.I Last Monday morning occurred the sudden death of Colonel Kobcrt W. Uoyd , or , as Tie was familiarly known , "Grandpa ] ) " Uoyd. Colonel Uoyd was born on the Wth clay of July , 1817 , nt a place called Strawberry Plains , Carter county , Teun. At the ago of thirty-live ho embraced re ligion and became a member of the M. E. church , soon after being ordained as a min ister of that church , and for thir teen years ho filled his regular appointments. Uut about this time ho took u change of hcnrt and was Immersed Into the Haptist de nomination , received nn appointment ns n preacher , and continued to expound tno doctrines of that church until his voice failed him. Ho moved to near Central City In 187-3. This is the place where the Uoyd warehouse was located , which wo hear so many soldiers talk about who were in the neighborhood of Chattanooga during the war. When Colonel Hoyd moved on the plantation ho built n church for the public use , and his charitable disposition was al ways recognized. Ho always treated his slaves In n humane manner , and wns never known to have any trouolo with thorn. He never , would hnvo any overseer or driver on his place ami when the war opened ho told them nil that they were free , but they would not leave him , and a number of them followed him to Nebraska when ho came hero. In 1SX ( ) ho was appointed n colonel of a reg iment , but on account of his family ho re signed ilnd took charge of the supply depart ment of the Union army and located near his home. When Uurnsido was about to lose his grip on Chattanooga ho , personally got n couple of dispatch bearers through the rebel Itnca to him. The dispatches were Imnort- ant , and had It not bcch for Colonel Uoyd the bearers would never have reached Humsldo , and the aspect of that battle would have been changed. For fourteen years ho lived near Central City on a farm and was highly esteemed by nil who know him. September 21 , 1SSO , ho moved to Marquctto and with his son engaged in the mercantile business. Although n wealthy man before the war , and losing everything almost ns a result of it. he never grumbled , and always remained loyal and true to the union , and since the war to the republican party.

[ Special to Tun llijR.J The late election passed off very quietly in the Hills ; but , nevertheless a con siderable vote was cast. Voting was quite spirited in the First and Third districts , whcro there were two candldatns entered in the Hold by each political party. Quito ix stir- [ irlso was caused In the First district by the defeat of S. M. Hooth , n very popular demo crat. Tlio successful candidate of the minority party in that district was Chauncey L. Wood , a lawyer of Uapld City. In the Third district , generally considered repub lican before election , tlio democrats suc ceeded In electing two delegates and in de feating J. L. Dcnnlssy. ono of the most prominent republicans of the district. The .lelogatos elected mo John Scollard and Thomas Thompson. In the Second district the contest WOK greatly sluiplitlcd by the fact th.it there were only three candidates in the Hold , nil of whom It was necessary to elect. This stnto of affairs did not exist until within n few days of tlio election. Two democratic candidates were in the Hold up to that time , and it was believed by the most active members of that party that both would ba elected. The democrats based their hopes of success on the favorable attitude of the labor organizations toward the party's candidates. Uut the hopes of the democracy were blasted tlio day before the election took place by the resignation of A. J. Corum , the candidate so popular In the labor circles. The cause of ills withdrawal from tlio Held was prosumbly the determina tion of his collogue , .ludgo C. M. Thomas , uot to run. Tlio hitter's friends , among whom are a largo number of the leaders of the party , were determined to secure his election if possible , and upon their request Mr. Corum graciously resigned. Thus the number'of candidate in the Held was the same as the delegates to bo elected. Consid ering this unusual condition of affairs , the vote was much larger than was expected. Carson , O'Hrlon and Thomas ( democrat ) are , of course , elected , while the majority for the Sioux Falls constitution is about 2OUO in tills country and about 2,500 in tlio entire Hills. Thcso Times lu South Dakota. Hunox , S. D. , May 10. | Special to THE UEE.J There now. Wo are u state all but . There was no enemy to light at Tues day's election. Ucally , tnero was nothing nt stake. No issue was up for decision. Every organization in tlio state , including the whisky dealers , indorsed tlio constitu tion , and this document was approved by a vote ot about 15 to 1. There was no special contest for delegates , excepting in three dis tricts. In two of these the republicans shrewdly divided the voting precincts so that all three of their nominees would got enough votes to defeat the democratic candi dates , and the fjchenio worked successfully. In n third the Sioux Falls district two dis- gruutlod democrats put up a midnight Bcliouie to defeat tlio two republican nomi nees. This pamo defeated ono republican and the regular democratic nominee. The bolters meant to down E. W. Caldwell , who was running ; but they didn't ' do it , much to their great disgust. The convention will stand , republicans , 51 ; democrats , 2-1. Hardly half of a full vote was polled. It will not exceed 40,000. Hut this is attributa ble to the lack of opposition and to the fact that n very heavy rain foil during a largo portion of the day. When it comes to the vote of October 1 , whcro minority repro- Rcntation , prohibition , capital location , mem bers of congress , u full state ticket , includ ing a legislature , which will elect two United States senators , nro to bo passed upon , South Dakota will poll a round 100,000 votes. We won't be two-thirds of u citizen at that time , as wo were Tuesday ; but each man can veto for all there is up , without leaving u part of tlio ticket for some other fellow to vote for as wo did May 1-1 , by 13. Springer's cunninir. You in the United States call this an "off" year for elections. In this state it will bo the "onnest" year for elections South Da kota ever had. All the crops are coming along very finely. Eastern Dakota has had another series of heavy rains this week , besides three days of sunshine. This makes all satisfactory with tlio grangers , and their hopes are rising for largo rewards for their labor. For the wlieat crop , the weather of the past four weeks has been perfect. Speaking of tiio grangers , they have an offer of all the binding twlno they want nt 5 cents a pound lower than the "trust" was willing to sell for. The alliances are sum moned by the president to hold secret meet ings next Wednesday and vote on a twine proposition that will then bo laid before them. And this will take some more rocks out of the way of our granger brethren. By tlio law authorizing the erection of a soldiers' homo at Hot Springs , the appoint ment of its live building commissioners was not to bo made until this month.

So the two-staters rejoice ut Ordway's defeat.

( Special to TUB HuiM Superintendent Given , of the Hock Island ro.ul , at vhls place , Is making some interesting experiments with carrier pigeons , with a vlovv to uslr.i ; them as sup plemental to the telegraph service. One day lust week ho shipped by express thirty-four carrier pigeons to Urooklyn station , seventy miles cast of here , on the Kock Island. After being kept awhile , tlio birds were freed from their box at 7 o'clock In tha morning. They ntoncoroso over the town ami for about seven minutes seemed disposed to explore Hrooklyn and got their bearings perfectly. Then they shot away west and took a beeline line for Dos Mollies , reaching the superin tendent's barn a little before 0 o'clock , having made the seventy inilei In lew than two liours. All of the birds arrived homo In good condition save three Unit had dropped by the wayside. Superintendent Given Is experi menting with tlio pigeons with n vlow to es tablishing a sorvieo all along the line of the road. It frequently happens that during great wind storms the wires , If not down , are useless , nml the railroad is sadly embarrassed for want of communication. If he can or- nizo a carrier service at each station , ho thinks ho will bo nblo to face tiny Interrup tion of telegraphic service with composure. The birds that made thu trip from Brooklyn were young ones , with little experience In tlio business , having miulo no long trips bo foro. Their return from n seventy mile sta tion in less tlmu two hours is considered pilto remarkable under tlio circumstances , nnil will encourage Mr. Given to continue his training. Imvn'H Inillnns. DES MOIXES , in. , May 19. [ Special to Tun HEII.I While so much Is being said about the Cherokuo Strip anil tlio Sioux reservation , and other Indian lands , there are a good many Inquiries of the governor as to the foiv Indians yet in IOVM , and the lands they hold. The Indian ques tion , so far aa ho is concerned , seems to have talten a fresh boom. The only Indians in Iowa are located near Tame , City , in Tanm county. They arc n remnant of the old Sacs and Foxes , who formerly ocouuied n largo part of this state. At present their lands embrace a very small tract only about 1,300 acres. In 1S'17 , and the years immodlntely following , the Indians in Iowa made a treaty with thu government and sold their lands , and very generally moved to Kansas and Ne braska. Uut shortly before the war , some 01 them began to pine for the old home and wanted to get back to Iowa. So they bought the land now occupied by them in Tamil county , and a few hundred ot thoni moved back. Tlio titles to their lands are madu out in the name of the governor , who thus acts as a kind of perpetual guardian of their in terests. They have been doing u little farm ing in n very primitive way. but they don't take kindly to the encroachments of civiliza tion. They care but little for the schools which nro provided for them , and as u whole are shiftless and improvident. The wliolo number of Indians in Tuma county is nyxv about 3GO , and the tribe is slowly passing away. The government gives them nn annuity of about $ i-OiJ , , and tlioy usually make a visit to the governor once n year to nsk him to have the amount increased. The inoro annuity they can pet , the less they will work. Thu little band of lowu Indians are not very suggestive of the noble red man of history. Iowa It'jcordcr.-i Orjitniziiii . DES ) MOIXES , In. , May 10. [ Special to Tuu HEE.l And now It is the county recorders wno want u state organization to improve their prospects. An effort is being made to ujork up a state convention of recorders and thus keep up with the shcrilTrt and county auditors , who have state organiza tions and annual meeting : ; . Aside from the social benefits which would result from such an organization , the recorders have several different ends which they hope to reach in this way. They think that ofllcml bonds should bo recorded by the recorder instead of by the auditor , us at urcscnt. They think that fees should be paid for several little services that they now perform gratuitously , and that tlio fee laws should bo revised and mudo more exiilicit , so that they can bo more certain of their compensation. Then they want the recorder to huvu a seal and some of the authority that notaries public have. There are a number of these reforms and improvements , so far as they nro concerned , that they think could bu secured by united action. The recorder of Chleltusaw county is leading oft' in the work , and is stirring up the other recorders to join in n state con vention , and then make a state organisation. Not a Gala Day.

Ho discourages tlio practice of making it n gala day , or general holiday , for amusement purposes , and thinks that the idea of reverent honor for the dead , should bo with all its solemnity , thu uppermost idea on that day. In his general order on this subject to the Grand Army posts of tliis state , ho notes the disposition Unit has prevailed heretofore to regard Memorial day us u gala day , with games and other amusements and schemes for money making. Uu believes that this is thu result of thought lessness , rather than nn intentional neglect of what is rightfully duo to tlio occasion. So lie requests tlio posts to lake tlio load in ar ranging lor public exercises and to Invite all citizens to suspend business from 10 u. in. till 5 p. in. , and join in paying reverent tribute to the dead.

Governor Eagle thought ho could bo bolter able to Judge of what was needed by being on the ground , so lie took the first train to Forest City , and U now thuro uiid , will remain there until quiet Is restored. The cause of nil the trouble was the deter mined nttomut of the negroes to elect two of their race to memberships in the school board In place of two whlto candidates.
