On Saturday the newspapers received copies
of "Program nio of the Lard Mayor's Show. "
In the olllco of tlio London edition of t no
Ilctalii IJ.'U'nur.i'j methods nro fairly well
known , AS well as admired. This programme
excited ailmlration. It mentioned a number
or- allegorical floats , 0110 of them
representing "Kngl.ind and America ,
( dra\\n by twelve cream horses. "

iat druwu by twjlvc llamas ana twelve os
triches fl-iwing cars.
The American programmo looked lilto the
usual pronunctamcnto of tlio great iSarmun ,
but to E'ligllsh editors , in spitit of several
gtartlUiR innovations , it must liuvo appeared
ripht and proper , for It was printed. Sir
Henry Isaacs , the now lord mayor ,
lee Hod long nnd anxiously at this
programme to-day. Ho lirst thought
there must bo some mistake. Then ho
assured the Ilorald correspondent that there
was a imatalcc. IIo read the programme )
curofully , and iho moro ho read the inoro
surprised ho was. Finally ho said : "Mar
vellous , " and was then lost for ninety seconds
ends In dcop thmght. Having emerged , no
mid :
" ' . ' . 'his can't bo ths programmo , for it will
not bo decided npon until to-morrow. Twelve
gentlemen , six appointed by me and six ap
pointed by the two sheriffs , will meet nt
Guild hall to-morrow and arrange tlio pro
gramme. I can't ' say exactly what they will
do , but I can say that Micro wilt bo no floats ,
no llamas , no ostriches and no liarnutn In
the lard mayor's show. "
After some chat of a general nature about
the show Sir Honr.v fsaaos said :
"There Is no intention to offend men liliu
Jlnrnum , but ho can t ba purmittnrJ to intcr-
foru with the lord mayor's show. Wo may
borrow a few horses from him , but do not
need the entire circus. "
Itanium , as usual , has KOt thero. No
matter what the lord mayor said , so long as
ho said somothmtr , ho has spoKen fully for
Uarntim and his representatives.

I oxnox.Oct. 0 , The second ballots which
took place in 1st ) constituencies In franco to
day excited the least possible interest in Eng-
hind and nppcur to bo regarded throughout
Prance und In Paris Itself with nothing approaching
preaching the usual election excitement.
The feeling seems to liuvo become general
that the republic Is now firmly established
for many years and whatever may be tha ro-
biiltof to-dny'ft balloting Franco will main
tain her existing form of government Intact ,
Houlangcr Is no longer n factor in any
French political problem , Those who lie re-
fore have been his wannest friends are to
day ready to nccudo to explanations of the
general's disastrous overthrow at the polls
which nro anything but creditable
to tholr former chief. Utterly inmblu to
comprehend that the French people Imvo de
liberately repudiated them and their revolu
tionary schemes , they now insist that their
dcfeal is duo entirely to thu failure of Gen
eral lloulaugcr to use the largo minis of
money which had been given him to aid la
carrying the elections , for the puruoso for
which they were Intended. It Is openly
oharired that the general has been quietly
stowing uivny- millions of francs which
wealthy dupes poured Into hit coffers whllo
lu let the elections take euro of themselves.
Doulaugor takes pains to create thu im
pression tlmt , he is Impoverished , but his dls-
itiiDicil allies make no secret of tholr belief
ihnthu has carefully nursed his bank ac
count tit , the expense of his own uud their
lolltlcal prospects.

The famoim Omaha court-uiartml case of
Lieutenant Colonel Jonhua S. Flolcliar , of
Iho Second Infantry , Is still troubling the of-
llclals here. It was stated In this corre
spondence some time ago that Flotehor was
fonud guilty by the court-martial and sen-
Lenccd to dismissal from the army. The
| udgo advocate genornl reviewed the case
tioro and disapproved of the llndlngs of the
court-martial. From the Judge ndvo * to
general It went to the general of the araiy ,
who was also given a chaaco to review It no-
cording to the rules or the service. At llrat
General Schollold was Inclined to sustain the
views of the Judge advocate general , but
nftor inoro mature deliberation ho concluded
to differ with the Judge advocate and ap
proved of the Undines of Iho eourt-martliU.
Ho did so nnd sent the documents pertaining
to the case to the secretary of war. Secretary
Proctor called his military secretary , Col
onel Thomas F. Barr , to his assistance , and
together they went over the records ol the
case and considered it profoundly. Proctor
knows very little about tlio army nnd less
about courts-martini , so ho left the matter
entirely to the determination of Colonel
Bar:1. This oUlcer concluded to sustain the
view of the case takeu by the Judge advocate
general , und prepared un opinion in the case
for Secretary Proctor. The secretary ap
proved tins vlow of the matter taken by Col
onel Barr , and adopted Barr's opinion as his
own. The case was then rnforrcd to the
president , in whose hands it is at present.
The judgo-advocalo treneral and the secre
tary of war have disapproved of the ( ladings
of the court-martial winch sentenced Colonel
Fletcher to dismissal from the army. .Major
General Scholleld , the cencral In command
ot the army , approved the findings of Iho
court-martial , and thus the matter stands at
present , . It is thought the president will sus
tain the viowa on the matter tahon by the
secretary of war nud the judge advocate gen
eral , and that Colonel Fletcher will escape
from the net woven around hlai by his subor
dinate olllcers at Fort Omaha.
For one week now Washington will be
given up to the ICnightoTemplar.
They have already taken possession of the
city. Their banners , bunting and Hags every
where proclaim that politics have been relo
cated to tlio rear. With the impending cam
paigns in New York , Ohio , Virginia and
other states few men from cotiKress will bo
hero during the week , and there will ho a
practical suspension of the operations of the
machine which grinds out appointments in
the executive departments and elsewhere
where they may bo. A cabinet meeting and
routine ) work at the wliito house will pro
ceed. It is understood that for six days
everything political will give way to tlio
festivities of tlio great triennial conclave.
It is refreshing to have the city full of jico-
ulo from every section of the country noxv
and then , and nothinirsaid of politics. Wash
ington is essentially and naturally a political
mart. Politics is king here , like wheat rules
at Duluib , hogs at Omaha , cattle nt Chicago
nud cotton nt Savannah , It. is not often tlmt
the priuiu staple of the -2. > ,0)0 ( ) inhabitants of
the national capital is shelved for .a whole
week und neutral subjects uro
discussed or festivities are al
lowed to tnlto possession of the
city. Washington never looked so hand
some , with her banners , flags and buntings ,
besides her miles of bright colored Insignia
of the order which prevails. There is a holi
day atmosphere on every hand. People are
generally takmtr n vacation. The decora
tions of the city are prettier than on the
occasion | of a presidential inauguration.
They nro moro highly colored , richer und
diversitlcd , The HOinbro blacit , indicative
of chivulric courage , uud the pure white , em
blematic ot gentleness , commingle ut every
step with thu deep red cross , the sign of the
crnsado era. Tills is to bo the greatest
Knights Templar conclave over hold , t'ho
attendance promises to bo larger and the
auspices and surroundings are more pleasant.
The full dross of the Unignts never made
men look so handsome as in Washington ,
where there there Is a natural military at
mosphere. Pennsylvania avenue never ap
peared to suuh good advantage. The parade
on Wednesday will be Iho most brilliant
scene this great thoroughfare ever pre
sented. The wefithcr m the concern of all
to-night. It has been bright , and beautiful
for some time till to-day when the clouds
hocamo overcast und rain was the threat.
Finally , as oronlnir came on there wcro little
spits of rain and lastly a slight regular
dri/zle. October is usually a bright , dry
and pleasant mouth in the region of the
Chesapeake bay , and If this is uot a week of
line weather il will bo the exception.

Whllo Mr. MlUc will not bo the loader of

conversation to-day , Mr. Mills said that
though the democrats wore In the minority ,
they were fully conscious of their power ,
nud would use It. "Wo don't propose , " said
he , "that the republican majority will pass
n single measure without our consent For
instance you may depend uuou it that the
rules of iho house will not bo changed by the
republican majority In any essential tcaturo.
Wo do not propose to permit them to bo
changed , as is desired by Mr. Hood nnd
others , In any particular feature. Nor will
wo permit any of the proposed legislation
looking to the control by congress of the
elections , for wo see very plainly what the
mirposo of that Is , The satnu can be said of
the contest eases that will1 como up before
congress. Wo do not prop'ose to let the re
publican majority increase ad libitum by
throwing out democratic members , as seems
to bo the purpose. In other words , wo pro
pose to exercise control of the house Just as
much as though wo wcro still lu the majority ,
beeauso wo know our minority is strong
enough to niuka us the virtual rulers.1

the Judga reviewed their actions In soinu of

them. In the case of Dr. Schwartz , charged

ant mndu no denial of thu charge and ad
mitted that ho had no cortlllcatu , and yet the

was not denied , but one of the defendants
claimed the liquor was furnished because the

defendants were not guilty of the charge.

fortunate circumstances , was louud not
guilty by the Jury. 'Iho only provocation
shown by the testimony was that Phillips

Tills will undoubtedly bo the case unless
