LONDON , Oct. 10. | Now York Herald
Cable-Special to Tun line. I What Is
going to happen m the world of politics )
Something now , It Is clear , but a veil is over
It as thick as that which envelopes the vener
able prophet of Hawardun. It is evident
that the pcoplo have had enough of the
present deadlock. They are weary of seeing
the B.itno side of the Irish question ever
lastingly presented to them , hence there Is a
movement all through the country. The
Glaastonoans , being In the opposition , nro
naturally quicker to detect it than the gov
ernment p.frty. The loaders are being sum
moned to Ilawardon one after another. Glad
stone has boon asked what means nil this
hurrying to and fro ? His answer Is to the
effect that It has absolutely no significance.
The great man's lieutenants bnvo only called
at the cnstlo to lisle whether ho has slept well
lately. They have probably boon Informed
that ho has slept lu his usual manner that
Is ever with one eye open. The stir in the
country , the uneasy Mvltchlnu's observable
In the grand demonstrations , have not es
caped his notice. Ho means to have soiuo-
thing to sny to that same grant when the
right moment comes. Some thno ago Glad
stone told us of n conservative lady of his
acquamtanco who humorously reproached
him for not stopping down. "You are ill-
was popping up nRaln , " she exclaimed. This
lady mustporcoivo that ho is at his old tricks
oncuinoro. Ho Is truly English , according
to Dapoleon's standard , in never knowIng -
Ing that ho Is beaten. In fact ,
who Is to know whoa n man
Is really beaten in the political arena ) Who
was beaten so often and so hopelessly us
Disraeli , yet ho lived through it and became
prlma minister of England , and had ho lived
n lirtlo longer ho would have been prima
minister again ,
The past Is soon forgotten oy the public ,
nnd the English public Is particularly gener
ous In that respect. It remembers every
thing that tolls in favor of Its old servants
and passes a sponge ever the rest. There
fore , no 0110 need bo surprised to find that
Gladstone Is being restored to popular
favor. The people are getting over their
alarm about homo rule. They think that
the old man has had a warning , nnd that ho
will bo core cautious the next time ho
tackles the subject , nnd that ho will contrive
to do Justice to Ireland without endangering
the empire. That is the Impression which Is
spreading lu the country. It partly accounts
for the couscrvatlvo voices in the recent
There is another force at work Which lead
ing Journals do not seem to bo awuro of ,
bub which Is do\tincd to iproduco
tremendous results. I refer to the social
upheaval , which is daily acquiring greater
momentum among the great body of pco
plo. Wo have educated our musters , as
Ilobert Mown ironically advised us to do ,
with usual result that their eyes have been
ouoncd , They see more clearly than ever
the Immense disparity between the lot of the
rich and the poor and they chafe under the
conditions which hem them In. That thou
sands of hard working men should toil for a
bare sublstcnco ; that thousands of women
should bo driven to the streets because
the sweater takes the prollts of
their labor wlion. they try honest
industry that the fruits of their toll should
somehow or older appear to bo passing nioro
and more into the hands of syndicates and
grcatcompanles , who crush out small capi
talists all this and much more of the same
kind is awakening n spirit which the world
will hoar a great deal more of before it is
much older. The Issue which will shako
England ono of these days Is not the Irish
question or the disestablishment , question ,
'out tlio long-threatened struggle between
socialistic principles and the defenders of the
existing system. It Is coining nearer , though
many eyes refused to see It. I think , looking
on It at Its curly and preparatory stages now ,
that the great body of tlio people appear to
feel that when the critical tlino arrives they
are moro likely to got help from the liberal
or radical party than from the conservatives
This belief will huvo moro or less effect on
nil future election contests , especially lu the
Another change which is passing ever
political parties is tno statement that
the liberals nro mulling their way
back to the regular fold. I do not
BCD how this can bo doubted by these who
Btmiy the Held attentively , yet the conserv
ative leaders do not scorn to bo uwaro of it.
It will make a vast difference to them if the
tendency goes on how many of the conserv
ative majority in the house of commons ewe
tholr Beats to liberals voting for unionists or
absenting themselves from the polls. I
should say that one-half the liberal party
will get reunited and wo shall sou some
Croat chnngca all around. Now is the
time for the conservative to take these facts
into consideration. They I i uot pleasant
to look at , und some will say that it is not
podtia oven to mention them , but keeping
alienee about them will uot prevent them
marching on. They must bo reckoned with
portals. Before they como up for settlement
umu of tlio proaont political loaders will bo
gone from the aceno. No matter. Ideas do
uot die with moii. What every man In pub-
lie life will have * to decide for himself Is what
course he intends to take on the social
problems. What docs ho Intend to do on thu
labor nuostlon , the housing ot the uoor ques
tion , the lana question and similar questions )
Far be It from mo to suggest what any man
ihould do. I merely point out that there are
great and vital Issues which undorly English
politics at the present time , and that homo
rule is only important because tluio and tbo
muni.er of Its Rcttloraont may materially
nTcct ( the method in which the greater issues
boulud It are dealt with.

WASHINGTON. D. O. , Oct . ir. I
President Harrison made to-day what
promises to bo his most popular appoint
ment. It was that of General Green 13
Kauin , of Illinois , to succeed Corporal Tan
ner us commissioner of pensions. The sclco
tlou was ofllclally announced at 10 o'clock
this morning , nnd up to Into to-night not a
single syllable has boon uttered against it
by nny ono.
General Haum combines all the attributes
to malto a most excellent and satisfactory
commissioner. Ho was n splendid soldier
of the General John A. Logan class. Ho U
a popular , thougti not a boasting G. A. H.
man. Ho Is n splendid lawyer , familiar not
only with the laws but the rules and prac
tices of. the psnsion ofllco. Ho for
several years occupied the ofllco
of commissioner of Internal revenue
and dismayed rare cxocutlvo ability.
General Uaum goes Into the oQlco better
equipped In every way than any of. his pre
decessors. Ho has no hobbies , uo preju
dices. Ho was not wounded , It 1 * true , but
it uiay bo that ho is the bolter tlttcd for that.
His orguni/ation of the Internal revenue , a
branch of the treasury department , was per
fect , and It was only necessary for President
Harrison to bo reminded of his administra
tion of that ofllco and the fact that ho would
accept the commlsslonorslilp of pensions to
induce action. The first mention ol General
K.turn's uaino for the commissioncrship of
pensions was probably by Senator Mitchell ,
of Oregon. It was almost thrco weeks ago
that In passing Tun BKU bureau ho stopped
and said :
"III were President Harrison I would
send for General Green B. Raum , of Illi
nois , and iuuuco tiliu if possible to tauo bold
of tlio pension ofllco. IIovla the best man for
It In the country. It has Jnst occur rod to me ,
and I am going straight to tbo white house
and make the suggestion. "
This ho did. Senator Mitchell is naturally
Ex-Coinmissionor Tanner said to your
correspondent as soon as bo hoard of the ap
pointment : "It is the best selection that
could have been made. General Haum was
a callant soldier , Is a good man , a line law
yer , with liberal views ontko , subjeot of pen
sions , nnd I am satisfied Iw will do all ho cau
for the pensioners. "
General Bradley , ColonelAxoll and other
local G. A. U. men spoke in the same terms
of General Haum. while IJopresentative Bur
rows , of Michigan , Anderson , ot Kansas ,
General UouT , of West Virginia , r.nd many
others say the selection was the best that
could have been made. - '
The appointment was a great surprise to
almosteveryboay. It is not likely that a
dozen persons in the city anticipated it and
these who did wcro sworn to secrecy. The
president last nicht believed it likely that ho
would make the appointment but ho did not
roach a final conclusion till after 9 o'clock
this morning ,
Although General Raum has practiced law
or had ofllco here for twelve years or moro
bis aupolntuicnt is cnarged to Illinois , where
General Haum Is ono of the original Grant
men nnd the stalwarts will rejoice ever his
appointment. The General was sworn in at
noon and now has charge of the ofllro. The
work will proceed as heretofore next week.

Commissioner Groff acaln contends for
the inherent rights of the original settler
and reminds tbo local ofllco that it Is their
duty to advise a contestant or contostoo of
his rights and privileges in passing upon a
caso. The inference Is n strong intimation
that the land olllcor Is an advocate as well as
a Jurist for both parties to a case , nnd thutlt
Is thu ofllcer's duty to ECO that all parties
have all the rights the law elves them. In
the course of his decision , which Is iu the
form of a letter to the register and receiver
a t Chudron , Commissioner Groff says :
"Tho land in question being unoffcrod ,
Baxter's opplicatlon to file alleging settle
ment prior to the data of said entry as has
as has been seen , was inado within the stat
uary period. Although the reason given
was sufficient to suspend the same , tha regis
ter und receiver should have advised the
plaintiff of his rights In the promises. When
Baxter presented his application to tlio , al
leging settlement prior to the data of said
entry , you should have suspended the same
and ordered a hearing ( to determine the
rights of the respective parties. Since you
failed to order such hruriug.at the tlma and
to apnriso Baxter of > his rights ho
can not bo considered as having waived
them , Under the clrcu'instancos of the
case the contest against 'the entry , for the
reasons therein stated , mast be hold there
to have been properly Instituted.
"From tno record it appears that on Marcli

corroborated anldavit In which ho asks to bo
permitted to relinquish his homestead entry
without prejudice and be allowed to make n
now homestead entry for the southeast
quarter of section thirty-two , township
twenty-six cast , range twenty-seven west ,
nnd states as ono of the reasons therefor
thnt Baxter was living on the Und in a tent
at the time ho made the entry , and as the
settlement was made on the dav the defend
ant went to the land oplce , to make the entry
bo could not have known of the same.
"I am satisfied , from a consideration of the
testimony , that the plaintiff was , iu point of
time , the prior Bottler , and that ho had on
tbo tract substantial and valuable improve
ments "prior to the defendant , und ttmt bo ,
within a reasonable time thereafter , followed
up his settlement by actual residence there
on , ThU being tua case , your decision is
hereby reversed , and , slnco Crilly has applied
for permission to relinquish his interest in
the tract , the npulleatlon is hereby accepted
as a waiver of his right of appeal and the
entry is thorofor cancelled and thin case
closed. Notoon your records and advise the
parties interested that Crilly's entry having
failed because of conflict with the prior
right of Baxter , and since he has applied to
