us when wo wove helpless nnd feeble , She
sacked nnd burned tlio defenseless cap-

the Columbian exposition to Mexico , has forWarded -
Warded an Interesting sketch of the plan for
the Mexican exhibit , prepared and submitted
to the government of Mexico by well known
artists of that republic. This plan repro-
ecnts tlio history of Mexico from the timeof
the Aztecs to the present time , and is n his
tory of the b u inn n race and human habitation
In this country. Lieutenant linker says :
"Kxaet drawings and plans of the grounds
will bo given , and the urtMio skill of those
ongaped upon the enterprise warrants the as
surance that it will bo carried out in a man
ner credible to the liopubllc of Mexico. "

ItnNcd a Peculiar
WA iiiMTox , March (5. A queer compli
cation surrounds the question of who shall bo
United States district Judge for Idaho. The
president appointed Mr. Heattlo for the
place. Ho failed of continuation. The point
has been made that as this is a newolHce , it
can only lie IIlied by and with the ndvico and
consent of tlio senate , and the president's at
tempt fo to till it having failed , ho cannot ap
point a man now nnd have nun servo \intil
the senate can act on the nomination , Under vacancy such as the president
is authorized to 1111 until the sennto can pass
on it exists. Another view is Hint the va
cancy within the meaning of the law actually
exists , and that the president has the same
right to till It that ho has to till any vacancy.
The question Is under consideration at the
department of Justice.

I'nrneil's delegates to America will leave

cable assurances of warm and widespread
support of their American compatriots. Tbo
United Ireland contrails the departure and

Paruell's speech at Clnrkcnwoll was a

Davitt predicts that Parnellwill not humbug

ot a vindication , unless inspiring suggestions
in some American and Kuropean papers that
Mr. Muckuy assaulted him from behind.
Mrs. Mackay's London solicitors in prosecut

they have hit upon the origin of the incite

Several members of the London county
council have subjected thcniielvus to public
rebuke for their rash methods of inquiry Into
tlio Illness for performance of Xico , a noted
female ncrobrat. The councillors , after
seeing a prrfornmnco at the aquarium
to ascertain the truth of n rumor that
X.aeo had injured her back through rcpc-ntml
falls , insisted on making a closer examina
tion , threatening that a refusal on the girl's
part would involve n proposal in the council
to stop the exhibition. Xuco's mother bared
the girl's Daclc , under protest , baying :
"There , it your daughters are as pure as mv
child you may ho as proud of them as 1 am of
mine. " Tho.ghl afterwards refused to per
form until tlio directors of the aquarium
guaranteed her protection from insults.
'J'ho outcries ot certain printers and paper-
makers over the American copyright act do
not Unit any response among some of the

publishers will bo loft in a neutral position ,
wliilo these having houses may

having an establishment in America , will ,
when necessary , have the books set up In
typo there. Ho admitted that English paper
makers would bo injured , as nn amount of
trade would certainly bo diverted from them.
The act would nut bring the millenlum to
English authors.
The manager of Kpotteswoodes , the great
government printers , says the copyright act
will not have a serious effect on the publish
ers. There will bo a tremendous waste of
time and sending of proof-sheets to and fro
between England and tlio United States.
The paper makers are more alarmed. A
deputation of stationers propose to wait on
Sir Michael Illcks-lleach , president of the
board of trade , and demand government ac
tion to prevent serious Injury to their trado.

Mr. Stock's , "Fanny's" husband , is said to

only a hearsay evidence. Obviously , If Sir

Tlio radical majority of Forest of Dean is so
strong that Sir Charles Is certain

anil Austria Too Cordial.
LONDON , March 15. [ Special Cablegram to
Tin : HII : : . ] A gooti deal of uneasiness is felt
in Dcrlln over the evident signs of.'cordinlity
between Russia nnd Austria , It is claimed
that tbo nutoijraph letter sent by tlio Aus
trian kaiser to the czar through Archduke
Ferdinand was nothing more than a friendly
invitation to the Russian imperial family to
visit Austria , and contained no reference to
politics. 11 lit advices from Vienna le.ivo no
doubt hut that tlio impression there is that
Kussiu is no longer to be considered as a
waiting foe , while there is but little doubt In
Herlin that an understanding exists between
the two empirfs. This is making CJennanv
all the more anxious to cement the triple alli
ance , nnd negotiations to that effect are beins
earnestly pushed at Vienna and Itome.
The kaiser attended a court concert last
The Uaiser lias requested Uio artist , I lerr
Salt/.niann , who accompanied him on his
voyages to Hussia and Norway , to visit EIIR-
liuul with him tun year in order to make
studios of niclures for Kngllsh naval and
other maritime scenes. The kaiser and the
empress will arrive in Knglsnd about the be
ginning of .Inly , as the wedding of I'rinco
Christian's daughter nnd I'rinco Aribert of
Anluilt is lixed for the 7th of that month.
Tbo con.sorvatlvo press does not take

the Australian federation convention Mr.
Muro advocated uniform duties between tlie
federated colonies , but , ho added , tlio inter
ests of Victoria , the protectionists' colony ,
must be guarded , and tlio conference would
fall to do its duty if it allowed the important
manufacturing which hud been created in
tlio colony of Victoria to bo ruthlessly dealt
with. Mr. Mellwralthsaid that if the resolu
tions in regard to ibo tariff wore passed
the feu oral government could readily bj
formed , even though all the colonies did not
Join the federation. The resolutions implied
free trade wittiin the federation nnd protec
tion against the world. Absolute free trade
was impossible , owing to ttio necessity of
raising a revenue. Mr. Dcakin of Victoria
said that the work of forming a common
tariff was a question of involving millions ot
pounds invested in industries built up by
protection and u guarantee must bo obtained
that the federation would preserve those in
terests. The constitution should require
that existing tariffs should only be reduced a

TOHONTO , March tl. [ Special Telecrain to
I'm : llii.J : : Commenting oa the elocllon the
hnpiro says : ' 'Tho issue was momcntuoiis.
J'ho government wns assailed with bitterness
almost unprecedented in our politics. Ily
calling in foreign aid the opposition leaders
cut themselves to n disgraceful attempt to
subvert the indcnoiidenco of Canada audio
overturn Ilritisli rule on this continent.
I'lottings nnd scheming were worked out
under the guise of a seductive commercial
[ > olicy. The electors were nsbcd tooolievc
that simply a business proposition wai before
them for acceptance or rejection , and the
most strenuous efforts were made , intending
over several yearsto catch thospniputhy of the
people nnddelmlo them into trusting the i > ne-
inles of tlicli1 country. Canada gave bur answer
to tills despicable movement yesterday when
It rejected the foreign plotters and their Can
adian allies and sustained , by n decisive ma
jority , a policy and administration which has
made this country strong , prosperous and
self-rcspectinir. Canada's reply to the an-
nexiitlonists and traitors , veiled or unveiled ,
is that she despises and rejects their proposi
tions with scorn , ntul that public men wlio
associate themselves with treasonable
intrigue need look for no quarter at the hands
of the indignant electorate. The government
of Sir John MnoDonald has teen triumph
antly vindicated in the face of the world. The
policy of unrestricted reciprocity or annexa
tion has received its quietus , timl the old Hag ,
the Ola lender , and the Old policy liavo re
ceived such an endorsement from the electors
of Canadn as to sweep Into oblivion their de
tractors and foes. "
Tlio World snys : "A number of the bor
der counties ol Ontario have defeated the
government candidates , and to this extent
the annoxatlonlsts may claim some gains.
Otherwise the opposition 1ms litllo to boast
of , as before another session is over Sir John
will have n majority of forty nt least. Before
another general election Is held Uio Wnnan
fad will have passed away forever. "
The Mall says : "Taking tlio election ns a
whole it will" he a , disappointment to both
hides to the liberals bemuse the headway
they made in Ontario and Quebec has been
nullified by the action of tlio electorate else
where , and to the government because it did
not sweep tlio country . The ministerialists ,
however , should bo well-pleased that they
have got off so well. "
The ( lloto says : "Tho prospect before the
government is not nn Inviting one. It has
been terribly weakened at the polls. The
premier's reckless speeches liavo destroyed
any hope of its obtaining a relaxation of the
United States tariff In our behalf and crea
ted irritation in the minds of our neighbors
which may produce evil fruit for us before
long. Every branch of industry has been
prostrated , and , without much exasperation ,
agriculture , the foundation stone of all. maybe
bo said to bo Hearing its last gasp , Under
these conditions the administration cannot
possibly survive. Hut the liberals are by no
means eascr to assume control. The respon
sibilities and dangers of the .situation are so
Imminent nnd so great that were it not their
bounded duty to f-avo the country if they
can , they would bo well content to let tlio
lories rule until the deluge arrives. "
