IncraIng : In London In splo ot

generally conceded that the dIsease Is In-
reclous. I has rapidlY spreall to the outlyIng -

there 1 small wonder that the disease Is so
prevalent here The houses In lhe hest
quarters are lily equipped against such cold
w ather as that ot the last few weelts. Not'
one hal In 100 In the expensive houses Is
warmed at all , whim the windows and
doors ot all FnglIsti residences are Ill-flttlng
and draughly. 'fhe temperature of the halls
consequenty Is below that of the outer air ,
yet the people go Into them from warm
rooms and a sudden chi Is Inevitable In
the poorer quarters , unhappily , the temperature -
ture Is only too equal In the living rooms
and halls.
The coroners report that forty people were
frozen to death In London during February.
The month was the coldest In the officIal
.s record. To Americans a daily average at
soma 28 degrees docs not Imply much suf-
terlng , but the tact Is the extent at misery
among the poor here was unparalleled , so
Insumolent are the preparations agaInst cold
During the last fly years there have been
ony tour months In which the temperature
In London has been below freezing polnl
The number of deaths last seek dIrectly '
traced lo Influenza was 111 , but the official
report gives 1,119 , or thlrly-tour per 1,000
from disease of the respiratory organs.
The mortality , judging by the long death
columns In the Times , was largely among
the well-to-do. The list ot suet , Including '
b the leaders ot both national parties , Is like

DurIng the extreme cold the drains and

thin lnr'IItN uf U"eIINhfrry ,
LONDON , March 2.-The marquis of
Quo nsherry was remanded on ball at the
Marlborough street police court to.y , chargll
with libeling Oscar Wilde. I appears the
marquis left wih n porter at the Albemarle
club a card , upon whIch was wrItten an
offensive remark referring to Oscar : \Vlhde .
A lawyer who appeared on behal ( t Mr.
Wide said lhal the hatter was on affectionate -
ate lermu with hi wife anti child , but had
been the object of n f'slem or the most
cruel persecution at tIme hands at the marquis
of Queensberry durIng the last len months.
Owing to the situation ot affairs In the fern-
ly at the marquIs or Queensberry , Mr. Wide
wa , most unwilling to take steps toward
criminally prosecuting the marqul9. nut
he had bean s : fearfully persecuted
mnlera hall now reached a clImax , anti he
was obliged In selt'lJroleclon to lake action.
03Ca Wilds and his wife are both members
of the Albemarlo club ; anti on February 2g ,
It appears , one of the hal porters handed
Mr. Wilde a card whIch the marquis ef
Queensberry had left for him. WrItten on
the card were three mosl offensIve and indecent -
decent word , Implying that Mr. WidE was
addicted to unnatural \Ices , This card
been lying In the club ton days before Mr.
Wide received It. Counsel for Mr. Wide
added that after a couple of witnesses had
been hearll ho would ask lhat the case be
adjourned for one week , when the whole
matter would be gone Into , as Mr. Wilde
did not propose lo rest the ci simply 01
tIme question at the libel referred to. lie
proposed to go into other case which had
occurred before February 18 , all after they
hal been investigated counsel would aslt
the magistrate lo commit the marquis at
Queen sherry lo prison.
The hal porter then testified to receiving
the call and an inspector at police deposed
to having arrested the marquis at 9 o'cloclt
this. morning In Carler's hal , Dover street.
The inspector said that when he read the
warrant to the marquis he thought that In
such cases proceedllgs were generally taken
hy surnmons hut he supposed It was all
right , and asked time Inector the date
when tIme card was loft at the Albemarle
club. When the police officer Informed hIm
lhat It was on February 18 , the marquis
said he had been wanting to find Mr Wide
for nine or ten days. rhc Inspector then
escorted the marquis to the police staten ,
Sir George Lewis appeared for the mar-
quis He said that when the cIrcumstances
In the case were more fully known the
magistrate would find lhat the marquis had
acted under feelings of great indignation.
The magIstrate , Mr Newton , here interposed
saying : 'Ve cannot go Into that now. "
SIr George saId he did not wIsh the case
lo bo adjourned without It being known that
there was nothing In the case against the
marquIs. , Mr. Lewis remarked : "I want
my client released on his uwn recognizance
In 1,000. " To this request the magistrate
said he would want a surety ot 100 In ad-
diton , and after a merchant named Tyser
became surety for the marquis , the case
was adjourned. .
Throughout court proceedings , the mar-
quis was perfectly composed , and when the
counsel for Mr. , 'Wide remarked that the
second word ( written on the card was ii-
legible , the marquis cody explaIned what
the word was.

cisco , March 2.-Whilho the government has
easily pnt do\n the revel , I docs not
take the most hopeful vIew at the situation.
This Is due , to some extent , to the ex-
ciement of the momenl. President Dole
and his cahlnet are disposed to adopt a
most lenient policy towarll those captured
In arms and UIOiO suspecled ) at sympathy
with them. But time ) ' are urged hy those
who have much at stake here and desire
lo remain to use severe measures In order
to prevent another revolt. The natives have
shown no fighting qualities. Of the men
coiled out by Nowleln , the military leader
at the revel , only about 12 responded.
I \ appears that the revel was planned
by whIte men , Gulck , Seward and nclmrd ,
that time money for guns was furnished by
white men la San FrancIsco , that the vessel
which , brought them was owned hy while
men , that white men went out In a steamer
and landed the guns , and lmt ! two half-
whites were the chlet commanders of the In-
surrection. Nowleln , the commander-In.
chief , says he was Informed positively by
his whlo royalist friends that he could
bring a force ot natives and that the
clUzens' guard at 500 men \ould not dare to
come out and that the "missionaries" would
yield at once , He believed thee statements
and acted on them only to discover that the
citizens' guard instantly turned out and some
300 more ' whites joined lhem
Even time absolute abdication at the ex-
queen does not settle mnatters. The natives
are thriftless and In the present commercIal '
depression are suffering to some extent
lS they have no earnIngs laid by. They
are told and believe . that a change at government -
ernment would brllg better times. The ex-
aminaton of witnesses under martial law
discloses the fact that there are many' white
men who wish a change at government , be-
cause It Is economical.
There Is a bonanza In the opium and
Chinese gambling buincss and the men
who control tile police and custom house
are In time way at making large perqulsltes
out of It. The great majorIty at whites ,
however , stand by the . government without
The government and its supporters much

under advice of Paul Neuman. She denied
\i knowledge at the revolt.wbile her place
was fled wih retainers armed with guns
and plslols. I was hoped she would plead
gully to a simple knowledge . at the revel
and then make a statement whIch would
almost compel the utmost leniency. I
was not difficult to show the facts tram
which conclusive knowledge at the revolt on
the queen's part was evident.
In the queen's diary , now In the posses-
sion at the government , Is lo be found very
curIous and definite information about thl
revolution ot January 19 , 1893. I Is well
known that the queen's cabinet at that time
had advIsed her to promulgate a new const-
luton , but when I saw trouble changed its
course and advIsed against I , anl even
went so far as to appeal lo Thurslon and
others to support I against the queen , The

The great municIpal confest which ended
In London after as bIter and long continued
a canvass as that In New York last year
was curiously like and yet unlike our fight
against public corrupUon. There were two
parties , the moderates and the progressives
- , , . . . . .
Tao former IClaeu practcalY nil toe great
properly lords at London and all the arls-
tocraoy and tory party In general ; repre-
sentatves at the state anti church were
unanimously on that side , and with them
were the liquor interest , the proprietors In
the musIc hals , the frequenters of these institutions -
sUutons , the water companies , street car
lines and olher private monopolies. The mar-
quis ot Salisbury and Arthur Halour , the two
leaders ot time conservatives , gave lhelr aid
to the moderate candidates , adjuring every
member at the conservative party to vote for
them , so It might appear that this was the
respectable party , but the tact Is that It
represented all flint Is worst In municipal
The corruption and scandals of the old
Board at Public Works , never fully exposed ,
because the press was and Is muzzled , led lethe
the overthrow of that body six years ago
amid the establshment at an elective county
council. The liberal party In naUonal affairs
captured the council and has controlled It
' ( rosa the slart. The council has In a large
meaelre reformed time administration , and
time hospllal and alnuhouse management , 1m-
Ilroved the fire department , given thousands
at ucre3 to new 11rlts and has made efforts
to reform the present system of taxation , by
whIch the ground landlords largely escape
their share of the munIcipal taxeS. These
efforts have been defeated thus tar hy the
House at Lords. Time council has been very
, walchul In the lIcensing and the control of
I puhlo houses and has broken up such dens
as the "promenade" In time Empire music
hall. I has many retorms yet to nchleve ,
among lhem the proposed purchase hy time
city of the water supply system and time
street railways.
These things arrayetl against the progres-
siva party all the interests nanmemi The Es-
lahlshed Churcl here Is always on the side
at time landlords Time progressives have es-
lablshcll a system of tiny labor under supervision -
pervIsion whIch has produced more efficient
results at less cost. The moderate program
approves a return to the old contract system -
tem , which was prolific at scandals The
counci Is an nnpald hotly. Both parties presented -
sented candidates of good character Among
time progressives mire many of the best known
hanker In London , among them such men as
Lords Tyhbledalc , Russell and Cmmrrington
Among tie moderate candIdates were the
duke ot Norfolk , Lords Cadogal , Churchi ,
Donoughmore , Durham , Dunraven and IQle ot
honorahles , several \'Icars and ex-omeers In
the Irmy and navy , Harry Marks , rormerly
a World reporter , and 10W the owner of a
IJrosperous fnalclal paper here , was a mod-
crate candidate . Women who arc householders -
ers are allowed to vote , but seem to make
Ito ot time privilege .
A Itrollg ; lght Is throwl on time Infuence
at Ihe soc l feelings here against time liberal
party hy the fact that Captain Le'lnnd , who
married the famou8 AmerIcan beauty , Miss
JennIe Chamberlain , and \ with his wife untIl

state council for March I , the main purpose
beimmg lo devise means lo alt the agrictmltur-
lets ot Prussia , who , eSJJeclal ) In tl eastern :
provinces , are heavily depressed In financial
cOlllon as a result of foreign competition
In grin and cattle. The sections at the stale

Inaugurle by an address upon the Interal
situation of Germany by time emperor , who ,
imowcver will nol preside , as he did In 1890 ,
but leave that duty lo Chancellor liolmemmloime.
The summonIng of the councIl Is interpreted
as showing time emperor and the cabinet , In
view of the Incessant agllaUon of the agra-
rans , have reslveJ to endeavor to arrange
some measures oi ' elet , But they will adopt
nothing so radical as , Count von Kanitz's pro-
' '
posed grain monopoly. According to' the
Franllf ! qR . .t4 'woposals which will
be dlscusse by time state council include the
organization of a certain system for smal
farmers , selements for ngriculural laborers ,
the cheapening of production , tariff reform
and n moifcaton ot the brandy and sugar
dutes , Several political personages consid-
ere to be exp/ls upon agrarian questions
have been invited' to sit wIth the stale .coun-
cl , and among them are _ Dr. Koch , prcsde . t .
of the Deutsche bank ; Count van lOnOI-
Frledrlchsleln , who warmly supported time '

Frenlzel , the ex-presldenl of the body of
commercial elders ; Herr van iardOrff : , Count
von 11rahaeb , herr van laltznhn , ex-secre-
lary of time treasury , and Herr Wltenbzrg ,
president of Imo ( Posen Settlements company .
These names , joined lo those of time eminent
memhers of the council , arc regarded as InsurIng -
surIng the atopton of measures beneficial to
German husbandry and cognate IndustrIes
An Interestng question arose In connection
with the convening of the slate council as lo
whether Prince Bismarck Is still a member of
that hody This was settled by a nolo In time
German Gazette announcIng thal the prince
was not only a member , but he < tl retains

Time UelchRlag has been busy with tho'

alhough the government demands for new
crulcers were conceded , the Uelcbstag test-
fed its determination to oppose expCndlture3

hy refusing time credits asked for to build time
torpedo boats This rebuff at the government
Is due to the abse'ntaton and In some case
to the opposItion of the conservatives , who
