NEW YORK , July 20. ( Special Tele-
Cram. ) The rout of English radicalIsm -
Ism Is now past all retrieving.
The unionists have already elected more
than a clear majority of the whole house.
This coming event cast Its shadow before
and was visible enough to those who had
eyes to see and were willing to see. Few
of us Americans have been willing to ECO
willing to face the facts ; willing to Judge
events In England as we should Judge them
at home. We are paying the penalty o
years of willful blindness. It Is a penalty
to misjudge a friendly people , to misjudge
the party In. England which bas felt and
shown the deepest good will to us , t
squander our sympathies on factions which
are hostile to almost everything American
and to put ourselves In false relations to ou
kin beyond the sea. Now , at last wo sce.m
likely to recover our usual clear-slghtednes
and to see things In tholr true proportions
The unionists , who have Just come Int
power , and have proved themselves to be a
great majority ot the people ot Great Britain ,
are the best friends we have. The beaten
radicals are the enemies of nearly all we
bold dear In public life. It Is of good omen
for the future ot the two countries that our
friends In England should have shown that
they ore a majority , and our enemies find
RADICALS OPPOSED TO AMERICA.
I know that this has not been , and prob
ably Is not now , the general view in Amer
ica. There Is no tlmo to argue It today ,
but I will state one fact , this , namely : That
tbo bitterest and most constant criticisms on
American principles and American political
methods are to bo found In English radical
papers , and that the reference to American
precedents Is always to bo sought In con
servative English Journals. On what other
theory than the ono 1 suggest Is that to bo
Of course , I do not mean that the elections
In England have turned on any such Issue as
this. No party would bo suicidal enough to
fly an antl-Am ; rlcan flag. The Issues have
been various. One organ of the vanquished
factions , who still sometimes call themselves
liberals , attributes' their disaster to beer
in other words , to Sir William Harcourt's
rash championship of what Is called local
vetp. The principle of local option Is the
present favorite crochet of the extreme tem
perance men. To adopt It Is to challenge the
opposition of the powerful and well organ
ized brewers and liquor dealers , and also of
moderate men of both political parties.
ONE REASON FOR THE ROUT.
'This Intemperate advocacy of temperance
Is ono cause of tbo liberal overthrow. The
socialistic radicalism of the liberal party Is a
far' moro direct and efficient cause. The
militant factions of liberalism have been
either socialistic or radical , or botb. The
people of England like neither. They do netlike
like attacks on property or on the propertied
classes , or on the foundation stones of civil
liberty and the existing social fabrics. The
place where these attacks have been most
frequent has been London. The organ of
socialistic radicalism , tbe Chronicle , Is a
London paper. The London county council
has for years been trying socialistic exper
iments , trampling on Individual rights and
confiscating property , or trying to , In tfie
alleged interest of the community. It Is with
these object lesslons before their eyes that
the 0,000,000 of Londoners have Just elected
as their representatives In Parliament elgbl
liberals and fifty-four unionists.
Nothing could show more plainly the effect
HOME RULE IS DEAD.
Homo rule was the third cause. I will take
the testimony on that point of two of the
most convinced home rule Journalists Mr.
Harold Frederic of the New York Times and
Mr. Chamberlain of the Sun. Both agree
that the English people have turned away
from home rule with loathing and disgust.
The wildest word which cither of them uses
to describe the English attitude to Irish home
rule Is Indifference. The majqrlty of the
liberals themselves , whether In the press oren
on the platform , kept It for the most part out
Of sight. They knew England would not have
It. Yfiey know that the imperial principle
and sentiment are deeprooted In English
hearts. They knew that union would triumph
over disunion , as It did In America , and as It
now has In England.
All that Is true , but what likeness Is there
between this now admitted truth and what
we have been taught to believe In America ?
Chauncey Depew , who haa always felt
bound to take the home rule view as BO many
other Americana have , In public life , for
reasons sufficient to them , now cays the elec
tions have postponed home rule for seven
years. He did not need to go so far as
Southampton to find that out. It Is , In fact t ,
postponed Indefinitely. Home rule had one
chan.ce. It was taken up by two men ot ex
traordinary political genius Mr. Purnell and
Mr. Gladstone. It Is conceivable , though
barely conceivable , that those tno men , II
they had remained united , might have In
duced England to destroy her legislative
union with Ireland. They parted , and from
the ir.onient Mr. Gladstone turned his back or
his Irish ally homo rule ceased to be po .
All you can siy ot the Influence ot the
present election on home rule Is. that It hai
been decently burled. The funeral ceremonj
has ben splendid and we itand at this mo.

Lords Is cither theoretical or avowedly par
tisan. The English people were told that the
hereditary principle was out of date. They
answered with calmness that It might be ,
but It worked pretty welt and they would let
It alone for the present. They were told
rather cynically by Lord Rosebery that the
House of Lords ought to bo abolished he
really meant reformed because It would not
pass liberal measures , Including homo rule
and the Newcastle program and sundry so
cialistic schemes. "But we ourselves do ivt
wish those measures passed" respond the
English people , and they vote down the aboil-
Ion of the House of Lords. That house
lands In urgent need ot largo reform , but I
ivlll ask Americans whether the English are
not right In saying that , whatever Its dc-
ects , It does Its work well.
The strongest cry against It was because
t threw out the home rule bill. Is It not now
perfectly clear that In throwing out that
bill It was giving effect to the wishes of the
IARCOUHT AND MORLEY REGRETTED.
This battlefield , like others , Is strewn
ivLth the dead anil wounded. Most consplcti
ous among them all was the prone and pen
ilerous figure of Sir William Harcourt. He
went down fighting. He Is already up again
and once more fighting , this time to win.
Nobody wants to see such an athlete dis
appear from the arena. He haa misled his
party on local option , as Lord Rcsebery did
on the House of Lords , and as Mr. John
Morley did on home rule. But all three are
Indispensable If the party Is again to appear
with full ranks. For It Is the misfortune
of the liberal party today that It Is only an
agglomeration of sections , agreeing perhaps
on one or two matters , but differing on most
and each contending for priority.
Mr. John Morley's defeat at Newcastle Is
reported to be the prelude to his retirement
from public life. I hope not. He brings to
It an element which , If not altogether prac
tlcal , has the virtues of sincerity and o
disinterested conviction. His oplnfbns are ex
trcme , but , at least , they arc honest. Ho has
been the best friend the Irish nationalists
had In England , and It Is the Irish national
Ists , or ono section of them , who stabbed
him at Newcastle. Such Istheir conception
Of the other figures who vanish for a
time from the lioune none Is of the firs
rank. Mr. Shaw Lefevre and Mr. Arnold
Morley , two more disabled cabinet ministers
are hardly of the second.
It Is the mighty warrior who retired to hi
tent before the fight began whose dctectlcn
brought , or helped bring , Irremediable dlsas
ter. Politics Interest Mr. Gladstone n
longer. They are no longer his politics
The dream of his political life came to an
end with the collapse of home rule two year ,
ago. No other vision has power to dazzl
and delude him.
WHERE THE WOMEN FIGURE.
Let us turn for a moment to a llghte
aspect of the drama. Three American wive
of English husbands have played parts I
this contest. .Lady Harcourt , daughter ot Mr
Motley , formerly American minister to Aus
trla and England , was canvassing for lie
husband at Derby. This canvassing by wive
has long been the fashion In England. I
struck us formerly as a mistake. Wo though
women out .of place In the rough and tumbl
of politics. Now , since the new woman cam
to the front , we arc meekly accepting a
this and much more.
The ruffianly assault on Lady Harcourt line
no argument against her presence. It ma :
suggest a doubt whether the presence o
women always has a humanizing effect o
people whoso tempers are up. In England
as here , the brutality was sternly condemned
Southport , or more strictly the Southpon
division of Lancashire , was the arena wher
; wo other celebrated Americans appeared.
Lady Naylor-Leyland , whose husband stood
as a converted conservative and liberal can
didate for this division , has been known for
years in England , where her beauty and her
social talents gave her a place apart. Mrs.
George Curzon , lately Miss Letter , Is a later
arrival , not too late to take at once the posl-
tlon to which rare gifts and accomplishments
entitle her. Her triumph at Southport , a
triumph which she shares with her husband ,
makes her a still more Interesting figure
and Illuminates her social relations.
MR. CURZON'S GREAT CHANCE.
Mr. George Curzon , whom Lord Salisbury
has Just made under secretary for foreign
affairs , used to be spoken of as a rising man.
He Is now risen risen at any1 rate to n
position In which his abilities and acquire
ments have a fair chance. Though liked
and respected In the House of Commons , he
has yet to win the attentive confidence of
that difficult body. Foreign office discipline ,
with Its reserve and Its delicate handling ot
diplomatic topics , will help him on his way.
His fame outside Is of many kinds , and his
popularity Is wide. There has Veen no
more Intrepid or skilled , or successful trav
eler of hi ? own still youthful generation.
His recent Journey to Cabal and back was
undertaken and carried through In opposition
to the advice and almost the prohibition of
the Indian government , . Experts predicted
failure , If not disaster. Success fairly entl-
tied him to the blue ribbon of adventurous
Beside him may be named , though ho Is
a new star In the political horizon , the greatest -
est of African explorers , Mr. Henry M. Stan-
ley , once an American by adoption. If not by
birth. Him , too , his wife has helped lift Into
the seat he Is now to occupy' in the House of
.Commons ; a woman of character , and as the
result shows , of much persuasiveness , though
not an American. Mr. Stajiley , slnco hla
return from the Dark Continent" , has taken
and kept a high position in London , and his
Is beyond question the most authoritative
voice now heard on those many questions of
African policy which are ever In dispute.
POLITICS IN THE BALKANS.
The murder of M. Stambuloff Is the Index
ot that savagery In politics which Is the note
of public- life In the Balkans. Not the ballot
but the bullet for your opponent Is the final
argument. The wretches who assassinated
the late ruler of Bulgaria are nothing ; they
only held the revolver and the dagger. The
man who put these weapons In the hands
of these braves was Prlnco Ferdinand. He
l > the assassin. He did not probably plot
the murder ; of that there was no need. He
merely refuted M. Stambuloff leave to quit
the country ; showered marks of displeasure
on him , and the rest followed as a matter of
A great man Is gone , great for the scene
in which he played. He understood bis coun
trymen ; knew how only they could be gov
erned ; did govern them , and did save them ;
once emancipated them from the unspeakable
Turk , from -enalavement by Russia. Death
la hla reward. It Is Prince Ferdinand now
autof to Russia for recognition who profits
or hop i to profit by the murder.

LONDON , July 20. ( New York World
lablcgram Special Telegram. ) Little need
e added to what has been already cabled
onccrnlng the magnitude or causes of the
verwhelmlng liberal defeat. As to these
ast , a fact mentioned exultlngly In the
Imes this morning Is significant. A certain
iondon public house , otherwise a barroom ,
ad been offered for sale Just before the
'lection ' at a certain price , but yesterday , In
lew of the triumphs of Salisbury's party ,
he owner Increased his price $5,000. "We
TO Informed , " says the Times , "that this Is
mly ono of many Instances In which an en-
lancement of value In such property has fol-
owed the elections. " It seems certain that
was really the llcmor question which mainly
rought about the astonishing and unex
icctcd result. Neither party- correctly estl
mated Its force. On the Saturday before
lection prominent unionists were most
nxlous and the liberal leaders were Jubi
lant at the outlook. They have been beaten
verywhere by the 'worklngmen's votes , and
bvlously because the latter resented , as In
Mew York , Interference with the beer sold
at their little clubs , as well as at public
louses , while the rich men's clubs were to
0 left unrestrained.
HOW THEY PUT IT.
Anstey , author of "Vice Versa , " vpry clev
erly hits this off In Punch this week. The
wife of a local candidate , canvassing for her
husband. Is discussing the question with a
poor voter. She says In reply to his qucs
Ions : "Oh , yes , I think I can tell you my
husband's views : on the liquor traffic. He Is'
anxious to see the curse of drinking stamped
out. No. Surely you are no friend to th
publican ? . You look far too respectable. Yes
as you say , they get rich on the earnings o
he poor , and It Is high time they were done
away with. Certainly , you may ask mo
question. No , of course my husband would
not dream of putting down the clubs. He
belongs to several himself. Oh , you mean
I'orklngmenjs clubs. You belong to ono your
self. So sensible of you , and , of course , there
can be no. possible objection so long as no
Iquor Is sold. Not conducted on teetotal ,
principles ? I am afraid that would make a
difference. Why ? Because , don't you sec ,
f people can Join clubs and then drink there ,
there would be no use In c'oslng the public
louses , would there ? We must be logical.
No doubt Intoxicating drinks are supplied In
clubs , but I don't see what tlmt has to do
with us. My husband ? No , he Is not a
total abstainer , but still No , no ; It Is not
a question of one law for the rich and an
other for the poor , at all. You don't quite
understand. If you have heard enough I will
go , of course. "
In their speeches since the election the
leaders of the liberal party , except Sir Wil
liam Harcourt , and almost all the liberal
papers , have practically repudiated hlr
bill , and the Dally Chronicle broadly Inti
mates that It would be a good thing If he
should be finally retired to private life.
DlkcusHlon has already arisen as to th.
party's leadership now , and there arc
ominous declarations that Lord Rosebery , as
well as Sir William , should be retired. Her
bert Asqulth's Increased majority has forci
bly dlrectd attention to him as possibly ,
even probably , the coming man.
WHAT THE VICTORS MAY DO.
With an enormous majority , there Is every
reason to believe conservatives will have an i
unrestrained hand for at least five years. 1 t
have carefully read all their speeches since ,
as well as before the election , and neither
Lord Salisbury , Balfour nor Chamberlain has
given even a hint of their policy , except as
to a negation of the present liberal meas
ures. Balfour made yesterday , however , a
rather remarkable statement as to Ireland.
"Whilst I was In that country , " he said ,
"I learned a lesson which I shall * never for
got ; that , after all , many Ills of Ireland- arise
from the poverty of Ireland , and this pov
erty was , I fear , In generations now long gone
by , In part the work of England and Scotland.
But England and Scotland , had it been
In their power to do great economic Injury
to Ireland In the past , they surely have
shown that It Is now In their power to confer
great economic advantages upon Ireland In
the future. Some efforts of that kind were
made by us , by the government of which
1 was a member between 1886 and 1S92. I
see no sufficient reason ' why tbe policy then
successfully carrle'd out to a certain point
should not be continued. "
Meanwjillo the frlsh leaders are very reti
cent abo'ut their future program , and 'their
opinion of the outlook for home rule. Par-
noil's obstructive tactics , which achieved so
much In the early days of the movement ,
can no longer be made effective , since the
rules ot Parliament have been changed to
cope with such action , but a party ot elghty-
flve members , by keeping up a good attend
ance In the House and pertinaciously criti
cising the Irish policy of the government , will
at least bring the Irish question once more
Into Its former prominence.
WILL CUT DOWN THE VOTE.
Too torlcs declare that before the next
dissolution they will reduce the Irish repre
sentation to limits strictly proportionate to
her population , by which It would bo only
eighty Instead of 103 members , as now. Such
a proposal would , perhaps , aid the nationalists
In fomenting agitation , as tbe present repre
sentation was guaranteed her In perpetuity
by the act ot union. The Irlr-h party say
they would agree to a reduction to eighty as
a condition of receiving home rule , but on
no other ground. The unionists will probably
give Ireland an extended system of local gov
ernment , similar to that given England In
18S7. They will pass a land bill , offering
tenants the chance of becoming purchaser )
of their farms on good terms , and will try
to detach -the electors in the poorer parti
ot the country from home rule by large
eranti ot public money ( or the development
of local Industrie * . The policy ct palliatives ,
however , has been tried -repeatedly by the
lory government , with the Invariable experi
ence that while Irishmen take all they can
get , they stick to the national idea moro
firmly than ever. In this connection It haa
been-noted that while a Welshman promptly
offered Sir William Hircourt his own safe
scat , no Irish candidate has made a similar
tender to John Morley , the best friend , next
to Mr. Gladstone , the Irish people has had
In this generation.
As predicted In this corrcsponJoncc , the
question of bimetallism was carefully elim
inated from the unionist program or promises.
So far as I can learn the subject was never
mentioned by any prominent man on cither
STORIES OF STAMBULOFF.
Nearly all the famous English correspond
ents h.id Interviewed Stambuloff at one tlmo
or another , and their reminiscences of him
this week are Interesting , They agree that
he was the most extraordinarily forceful man
of their knowledge anywhere. The story of
his having personally arrested Major Panltza
seemed apccryphol , except for the testimony
of these skilled observers , who reported that
"he won't unarmed to the house of the sus
pected man and Madame Panltza opened tlip
door. On seeing who her visitor was , she
snatched a loaded revolver from the table and
presented It. Stambuloff simply looked at
her. She put the weapon back on the table.
'Where Is your husband ? ' he said. In bed , '
was the reply. The minister at once went up
stairs. On the bed lay Panltza , with n re
volver at his side. He raised It as though to
fire , but M. Stambulolf looked him full In
the face , and he let It fall , 'Arise and fol
low me , ' said he , and Panltza obeyed. " Con
cerning this power of his look , one of the
corespondents writes : "While I was saying
these things I became conscious that M.
Stambuloff was trying to look , ms down , that
he was engaged In a psychological and per-
hapi half an Intended effort to see whether
his will or mine were stronger. Let me con
fess at once that he did look me down. When
that vas accomplished became better
friends. The Bulgarian minister-president ,
for so he names himself on his card , Is not
comfortable until he feels he Is mauler , then
his keen eye loses half lts _ brilliancy , his
mouth becomes playful In Its flexibility , the
smile , which Is at first perfunctory , runs off
Into gentle affability. "
HOW HE LIVED AT HOME.
He had long expected assassination , even In
the plentltude ot his absolute power. An
other correspondent says IbM , calling at hie
house In 1SS2 , "I found the house barricaded
against me. After ringing , a long time I
heard the nearest shutter pulled open and
saw the premier's head peer out suspiciously.
'What do you want ? ' I was nskcd. I ex
plained In French that I' had come to call
and the head disappeared. Presently there
was the sound of many bolts being withdrawn
and a servant opened the door cautiously
about one-eighth of an inch. At length I
succeeded In pacifying the man's apprehen
sions and was admitted with reluctance Into
the hall. There I was suWected to further
scrutiny , left alone a few minutes and then ,
after a muflled conversation within , admitted
Into the presence of my' hist , My deepest
Impression ot the man Is not sp much con
cerned with the little , hard , impassive Indi
vidual , who sat In hls'wj-HiIen arm chair
fixing me. with his eyes , as with the chilly ,
barrack-like aspect of the room. It was so
absolutely In keeping with tlie character of
the man. There was not the faintest attempt
at decoration , nothing , but what was strictly
necessary furniture , and that of the rough
est kind. No pictures , books or lounges , not
a tribute to comfort or the Imagination , each
of which was foreign to- the temperament of
this man of Iron. " When he visited the
palace his house would be surrounded by
mounted policemen. He would often keep
them caracoling there for'an hour. When he
came out It was quite unexpected. The door
would open and ho would dart Into his car
riage as If a whole pack of hounds were after
him. Then the horsemen would gather around
him and the whole equlpp.ge would start off
at a gallop. At the door 9f the palace the
guards formed a lane as before and the pre
mier disappeared like a rabbit Into his
A writer In the Pall-Mall Gazette , appar
ently Its editor , Henry Cunt , M. P. , tells a
similar story of his difficulty In getting ac
cess to this latter day Napoleon. Ho says :
"I was never so Impressed with the power of
a personality In a man. "
FINDING OF FERDINAND.
Stambuloff gave an 'amusing account of
his search for a prince 'all over Europe.
"When at last I had to send a commission
to Germany to hunt up n prince at any
price , " he said , "they puttered around a good
deal , but drew all the courts blank and were
sitting rather disconsolately In a Vienna
pot house , when a major , an acquaintance
ot one of them , dropped In. 'What's the
trouble ? ' said he. 'We are looking for a
prince to reign over us. and cannot find one. '
'A prince ? ' cried he , 'why , I have got the
very thing in the barracks. Just around the
corner. Come and look at hla points. ' They
went and found Ferdinand and finally passed
him , and so the business began. I ought to
say that the major came flying In a few days
later , saying he had gdt a much better prince
on aprpoval , but then it was too late. Well ,
when we had got him , I served him , I backed
him , I slaved for him. He was Ignorant. He
was , oh , avec ca. For' Bulgaria's sake I said
he should be a success , whatever Imbeclll-
ties he committed , and they were many as
autumn leaves. I vowed they were all my
fault , and took thc blame. I made my
countrymen spit on rafc ic ? sivi ; his name and
fame. Whatever suc ss'I bad I gave him
the credit , and prayed wh t a wonderful
man he was , Again * ml sgarln I risked not
only my station , bulimy , life to help him ,
and If I lose that life ] nowj , ' * , as I am more
than likely to , it w.ll be ton things done to
shield him front hlVresports'lblllty. "
"But you were rather a brute In your
ways of government , .weren't you ? "
"Yes , of course I was , for't had to manage
brutes. I love the 'Bulgarians as my chil
dren , but I see that they are1'children. . Some
of them were even scoundrels , and tliere

COLON , Panama , July 20. ( New York
World Cablegram Special Telegram. ) Late
last night the announcement was officially
made that the West Indian contingent of
the Panama railroad hands employed In the
mechanical department and at the commls-
sarat had struck work. When the news
reached the commercial center of the city
the wildest excitement prevailed. This was
Increased by the police arresting in the chief
business street a West Indian shopkeeper
named Fraser , who Is said to have been at
the bottom of the whole trouble.
.It is alleged that the strikers had held con
sultations at his house and that he and others
whom the police are hunting are the ring
leaders. Fraser's wife denies the charge ,
She employed a lawyer last night to get him
out of prison on ball , but without success.
The carpenters , painters and laborers on" a
strike held a mass meeting at Odd Fellows
hall last evening. The press was not repre
sented. Fraser's arrest Is likely to Intimidate
strikers and prevent them from holding other
meet' > 2 .
The laborers at the railroad construction
camp at Port Barrios , Guatemala , endeavored
to leave work In a body. The military wa
sent to ttie scene and a fight ensued between
100 coldleri with rifles and 300 strikers partly
armed with pistols. Eleven strikers and
thre : soldiers were killed and twenty-four
strikers and eight soldiers wounded. Five
cf the ringleaders In the 'strike , among them
two Louisiana negroes , were shot by the
commander of the soldiers.

SOFIA , July 20. The funeral of ex-Premier
Stambulcft today was prolific of exciting
scenes In the streets. The police were under
orders from M. Stoltoff , the present premier
and minister of the Interior , to take all pre
cautions to secure tranqulllty along the route.
Detachments occupied the sldo streets , keep
ing out of sight In the houses. The friends
of M. Stambuloff , their wives and members of
their households , assembled at 2 o'clock at
the murdered man's house , where the coffin
rested , covered by garlands and wreaths of
flowers. About 3 o'clock the cortege started
for the cathedral. Representatives of all the
foreign powers except Belgium followed the
funeral train. The attendance of mourners
of the general public was small ,
owing to a notice placarded last
evening , detailing accusations levied
against the deceased and urging the
ptoplo not to take part In the obsequies.
Three hundred paces from the house the spot
was reached where M. Stambuloff fell by the
daggers of the assassins. The cortege was
held and M. Petcoff , who was with the de
ceased when ho was attacked and who was
himself wcunded , made a speech to the as
semblage. Ills Jiead and arm were wrapped
with bandages where ho toad been stabbe < l
on Monday. In an Impassioned harangue he
charged the enemies of Bulgaria with the
terrible crime of murdering the man to whom
the country owed her Independence and the
prince his throne ,
He was still speaking when ft loud cry
was raised , "Hun for your lives. " A tor
rlble panic ensued , and the crowd became
frantic and made a rush to escape , everyone
ono believing that fighting had begun. Men
and women were trampled upon , and the
children carrying wreaths In a part of the
procession threw down their flowers and fled
screaming. A detachment of gen d'armofi
redo up with swords drawn. Their appear
ance Increased the panic for a moment , but
after a while they succeeded In restoring
order. Nevertheless , when the procession
was reformed and had resumed Its march , It
had lost many of Its adherents , all the for
eign diplomats having retired except the rep
resentatives of Germany , Servla and Rou
The funeral train had hardly started again
when a second panic broke out , causing an
other confusion which decimated the ranks
of the procession. Wreaths were dropped
again and trampled under foot. Some order
was again restored , the bedraggled garlands
were gathered up and the cemetery was
finally reached. Hero there was a shocking
scene. The enemies of M. Stambuloft and
the friends of Major Panltza , who was ex
ecuted some years ago for conspiracy at the
Instance of M. Stambuloff , bad organized
a hostile demonstration against the dead
statesman. The grave of Panltza had been
bedecked with flowers and flags and a largo
crowd , who had been attending a requiem to
his memory , assumed a menacing attitude In
the path of the hearso. A detachment of cav
airy galloped up just In time to prevent the
collision. When the grave was reached the
coflln was lowered In silence. There was no
oration over the remains and no ceremony
to mark the'delivery to the earth of the
former powerful ruler of Uulgarla , beyond
the yelling and hurrahs of a band of his cnc
mlcs , who were only prevented from attack
Ing the remains by a cordon of cavalry which
surrounded the grave. It Is said that thi
panic was started by a shot at the carrlagi
bearing the wreaths sent by the town o
Tlernova and by the Union club , from whlcl
Stambuloff was going home on the fata

BERLIN , July 20. The news of Jho mur
derous assault upon M. Stambuloff , the distin
guished Bulgarian statesman , fell like a Ilvo
bomb In the midst of the state of political
calm reigning for some time , depressed the
bourse and caused general consternation.
Some Idea of the effect of the startling news
may be gathered from the fact that an official
of the foreign office said to the Associated
press representative today : "Within a month
war may break out In the Balkan peninsula , "
Bo that as It may. It Is feared that the
murder of the ex-prcmler of Bulgaria will
lead to grave complications In the east. Many
of the German newspapers are very out
spoken In the matter and attribute the crlmo
Emperor William was In Sweden when M.
Stambuloff was attacked and In addition to
being kept fully informed regarding the sit
uation by the means ot * dispatches sent to
him twice dally by couriers , two officials ot
the foreign office were sent to Sweden on
Thursday with special messages. It appears
the emperor Intended to return to Berlin and
was with come difficulty dissuaded from so
doing by the plea that his hasty return
might , In the present disturbed state of poll-
tics , have an effect beyond what was In
tended. Many dispatches relating to Bulgaria
have been exchanged between the foreign
office of Germany and Austria.
The ceremony of decorating the colors car
rled by the guards during the war of 1870-71
