spndent of the Times telegraphs that It
scarcely needed Emperor William's letter to

profound ) Indignation at the refusal at the
Helchstag to authorIze Herr von Lo\'ltzow ,
president of that body , to congratulate PrInce
Dsmarck In the name at the House on the
approachIng nnnlversary of his birth , to give
a polItical character to thIs unedlylng spec-
, Te correspondent adds that I Is difficult
to avoId the Impress , , ) that Prince Bis-
marck's admIrers set the demonstration afoot
with a definite , though as yet veiled , purpose.
In the same manner ns that In which they
used the cry for religion , morality and social
order to Chancellor von Capri vi , I they
hall real ) wIshed a majority In the Helchs-
tag , there Is reason to believe they could have
obtaIned it , but for a fortnight last the press
oC the cartel parties has surpassed itself In ,
recrIminatIons against the centre party and
the radicals , which slowly but surely ex-
chulell every possibility of an amicable compromise -
promise No steps were taken to obtaIn any
courtesY that could not be wrung trout them
Stl ne oppositIon must bear a share oC
the hlame. The conduct oC the centrists wa
scarcely.wcrthy oC a powerful party. I may
he asmmed that thc centrists were Influenced
by time unyielding attitude of Herr Richter ,
the radical leader. Many nersons think that
herr Richter repeated his mistake of 1&93 ,
and carrIed his dCpotsm too far. As It b
the centrists and radicals have In the eyes
or a large part oC the country allowed them-
solves to he drIven by the macnlnalons of
their enemies to exhibit to time world a tes-
tamonlnm 11 per ts.
It would be hazardous to venture to conjecture -
jecture ns to the final object of the cartel
pa rle !
TheIr clamor for the dissolution of the
Reich stag Is a fitting sequel to theIr conduct
as a whole , but the correpondent says he
knows from excellent authority that there
Is no InclinatIon In influential c'reles to
listen to this queston about admnce. The
vote on the resolution was not equivalent to
the government's death. Neither the go v-
ornment nor the conservatives who arc cry-
Ing the loudest have anything to gaIn by
a dlssolulon oC the Relchstag.
I Is needless to remind the conservatives
oC what their position would bo In a general
election . with the government opposing the
Von Ianltz scheme for grin control by the
general govornrnont. With the single exception .
cepton of tie extreme radical and Catholic
and socialistic papers , the whole press admits
that the Reichstag , by its acton , lowered
Its prcstge , I Is probable that the new !
president oC the house wilt be a member of
the centrists , that Is . time clerical party.
LONDON March 24.-The Paris correspondent -
spondent of the Times says the press of that

make hIs escape was at the front door , and
being unable to get It open he rushed through

bulling at this point , where the fro had
evidently started , was a mass oC fames , and

The site of the blacksmith shop Is a block

and up to this time the 11eoplo nearet to the

was In their vicinity. MaguIre's cries for
assistance had not aroused any one. In a
pitiful condition , with his night clothes burn-

and hands , ho male his way a block distant

of no one that could be construed to he an

Time only difculy they had ever known
Maguire to have was a few weeks ago , when
a colored man went to his shop and bad a
