LONOON , Oct. 10 Tho'English newnpa
pern , which arc fond of preaching unctuous
Bcrmons on the subject of the "lawlessness
of Americans , " have food for reflection In
two events In London and Its suburbs this
( week The Honor Oak Golf club possessed
ono three-hill link for three years. Finding
the property -vas being wantonly destrojedor
Btolen , the club caused the ground to be
fenced in thus shutting cut the general i ub-
llc , to the great delight ot the neighboring
residents whoso llto had been made hideous
liocnuse of the congregation Micro of
drunken , dog-llghtlng roughs from the slums
of Depford Thereupon It vv-Jb clalmad that
the public's rights were being encroached
upon and the agitation against the golfers ,
assiduously fomented , culminated on
Sunday last , when a mob of about
1,000 persona , aimed with clubs and
utonos. toro down the fence and
demolished everything in sight. I'hoy de-
strojcd the golf links and reinforced by over
2,000 othei rioters the mob advanced upon
the club house , driving the golfers within ,
liilcks and logs flow until the club hcusc
; was wrecked. When the rioters were uniblo
to dislodge the detei mined members of the
club some of the mob leadeis brought bun
dles of straw , with the Intention of betting
lire to the premises , and they were only
prevented torn carrying out their purpobc
by the timely arrival of police reinforce
ments ? , the tow policemen previously on the
eccno having been as badly maltreated as
the golf plajcrs Ono of the latter fell into
the hands of n do/ten ro'igbs , who pounded
him with sticks until the unfortunate player
was In a scilous condition. A renewal of the
dlstui banco Is expected tomorrow.
A somewhat similar right-of-way raid was
\vltncss3d at Hllllngdon on Tuesday , when
the Inhabitants cf that place opened a road
through Loid Hllllngdon's gatno preserves
iThe right-of-way tlnough these preserves

INCREASING THE ARMY.
The Army and Navy Gazette voices the
opinion of Ililtlsh military men In congratu
lating the country upon the fact that the
ROY eminent has at last determined to In
crease the effectiveness of the army , as al-
trocly outlined In cable dispatches. The
Oa/otto saju it Is useless to deny that there
is reason for alarm at the present moment ,
adding lint the aimy Is unequal even to
ordinary demands , the home batteries and
battalions being llttlo better than so many
"military nurbeiles , " Continuing , the
Dazettu says. "Tho men. arc mostly Imma
ture boys and the reseives which would bo
mobilised turner certain conditions arc unic-

valuable , lias been allowed to run to seed
completely and the volunteers are a doubtful
source of strength. No patilotlc Englishman

CablegramSpcclal Telegram. ) John Albert
Edward William are the names given by the
prince of Wales , the marchioness of Illand- ,
ford and William K. Vanderbllt to the Infant
maiquls of Blandford , the duke of Marl- '
borough's firstborn , nt the christening today ,
In the Chapel Royal of St. James palace , | i
All eldest children in the Chui chill family I I
are named John after the first duke , other-
wlso the prince of Wales' baptismal names
would have come Ilrst. William is after thu
grandfather , William K. Vanderbilt. The i
'christening was a very quiet , select function. | I
A good sized crowd , composed chiefly ot well | '
dressed women , gathered at the palace gates
to t see the company arrive , expecting a big | ( '
fashknablo j assemblage. Hut the curloua r
throng | was disappointed. With the e.xccp- ]
tlon ot the prince It was merely a family I
party. The only notable absentee was Mrs. j
Helmont. As Mr. William K Vanderbllt i
was to act as sponsor , Mrs Helmont , for I
merly bis wife and the mother of the duchess
of Marlboiough , could not participate ; con
sequently she chose to stay away.
The ceremony was appointed to begin at
11-20 a. m. Punctually to the second the
duchess of Marlborough arrived , dressed In
pale blue and white silk , looking wan and
delicate Immediately following her was
the hope of the family , n bundle of white
satin and costliest lace , borne by a buxom
aiibuin haired nurse , dressed In white , with
black bonnet. The duke showed his wife tea
a scat In the pew nearest the altar , then
went out and received the other guests his
two sisters , Ladles Norah and Lillian Spen
cer Churchill ; his aunt , the duchess of
Buccleuch ; her two daughters ; the duke of
Abercora , his uncle ; the countess of Pem
broke1 , a cousin ; Lord Churchill , lord In
waiting to the queen , and about a dozen
Marlborongh women servants.
VANDERBILT IS QUITE SOLEMN.
Mr. Vandorbllt entered Immediately before
the prince of Wales , and having bowed
gravely to the ladles bo took a scat beside
the marchioness of Blandford , the duke of
Marlborough's mother , who shook him
warmly by the hand. Mr Vanderbilt -was
solemnity personified , clad in a black fiock
coat and a white waistcoat. He took up a
hymn book and became deeply absorbed in
its contents. The princeof Wales , with
Colonel Stanley Clark in attendance , was
then Ubhered In by the duke , who looked the
happy father all over , and took his place
neaiest the altar rail. The prince wore a
black frock coat , gray trousers and had a
flower In a buttonhole. Ho only faintly ac-
knowlcdgoj the salutations of the company
as thev lose to receive him. He bore h'a
most religious aspect. All this time the
young duchess was on tentorhookb con
cerning the baby's temperature , on which
subject she was iceelvlng whlbpered bulle
tins from the nurse The noble Infant , which
displayed an exemplary temper , evidently was
too warm in the multitude of veils and other
garments , so an assortment of them was re
moved gradually by the nurse and handed for
safe keeping to the mother. Subdcan Edgar
Shepherd started off instantly the prince
was in his place , standing with Lady llland-
ford ami Mr. Vanderbllt , and the nurse bearIng -
Ing the babe , at the font A wreath of cx-
qulsito white flowers was placed around the
rim of the font. A hymn was sung , the
company standing , except the duchess. The
duke stood behind the sponsors , assiduously
reading the prayer book. Nothing was more
edifying than the devout attention vvlth
which the prince followed the hymns and
prayers , In. . both of which ho appeared to
join. He spoke loud and clearly his responses
in behalf of the slumbering Infant , whom he
pledged vicariously to all manner of
righteousness with a light heart.
WOULD TICKLE ANYONK.
Thcio was Just a suspicion ot a smile on
the faces ot the noble ladies around when the
prince stoutly and unfalteringly declared
that ho renounced thu world , the flesh and
thu devil , and all his works on the part of
the unconscious lordling by his side. But
oven that did not disturb the equilibrium
of the Marlborough babe , which was a miracle
oj qulcsencc. Even when the paternal
grandmother , the marchioness of Hlandford ,
got him he nevei moved. When the clergy
man took him in his arms the Infant showed
the Ilrst and only tign of obstreperousness
by making a grab at , the crews of the order
of the Bath worn around the neck of that
functionary. When the ceremony was over
the pic clous infant was handed back to the
nurse * , to the obvious relief of the duchess ,
who had watched his migrations from hand
to hand with anxious eye. The prince then
stepped foiwaid and led the duchess to the
sacilsty to sign the baptismal register , together -
gethor with the duke , Lady Hlandford , Mr.
Vanderbllt nnd the duchess of Huccloucb.
The Interval while this select party was In
the sacristy was occupied by the others
present in gathering around the baby and
complimenting the nurse on his marvelous
HE'S THE ONLY BAHY.
"He Is the best baby I have ever minded.
Ho gives no trouble to any one , yet he Is as
healthy and strong as ho could bo , " the
nurse proudly declared. When the prince
retuincd with the duchess and the rest to
the chapel he shook hands with all the
women , who courusled low. Then ho stroked
the baby's face and complimented the ditch- j
era on Jils hc'althfu ! look. Afterward the I
prince advanced to Mr. Vanderbllt , who had ! I
stood moio or less apart , and , blinking his j
hand felicitated him on the birth of a grand. '
ECU. .Mr Vanderbllt received the piince's
cour.eous advance with dignified cor
diality , In contrast with Mie rather
olncqulous manner In which the no
blemen piesc-ut Lad addressed him.
Then the party dlsperssd and the babp was
taken luck In the Marlboj-oitgh coach to
Spencer house. The duke subsequently went
to tl.o mairlsge of the marquis of Waterford
and Lady Ilcatrlx KHz Mmirlco , second
daughter of the marquis of LandsJown , but
the duchess was too fatigued to accompiny
The prince of Wales presented to the babe's
parents a gold cup on which nero engraved
the data of christening , the ninu given to
the babe , the arms of the prince of Wales

"Langtry in fifteen long years never set
eyes on 'my better half , ' as ho was wont to
call her , until ono clay on King William
street their eyes mot. Langtry told me that
ho raised his lint most respectfully and
madame bowed , but it y as tlio greeting of a
husband and wife. Langtry never sivv his
wife on the stage. The last ilmo I met Lang-
try was vvl'cn ho came to town to Initiate
certain divorce proceeding- and I then no
ticed that my Ill-starred friend was no longer
the Langtry of old. Ho was nervous to a
degree nnd at times his mind wandered ,
while ho had ono Insatiable desire to have
'a few words' vvlth 'my better half. " During
Langtry's last Illness Mrs. Langtry's soli
citors requested that they be kept Informed
of his condition. H is possible that she may
inherit his estate in Ireland , as he willed It
to her by his marriage settlement , nnd as her
divorce is not recognized by ( he English law.

DEATH CLOSES TWO SCANDALS.
The death of Sir Charles Mordaunt , after
n short Illness , revives memories of the great
divorce suit of the century in which he was
petitioner and the piince of Wales , Lord
Cole , Sir Frederick Johnston and others vvero
co-respondents. The shame and anxieties of
that suit turned Sir Charles Mordaunt sud-
drntly from brightness and gaiety Into
settled sadness and gloom. lie never re
covered from the effect of the ordeal , al
though he married again. The daughter born
to his divorced wife , the paternity of which
bo repudiated , was brought up by Countcfi
Dudley , and is now Marchioness Bath The
divorced Lady Mordaunt was a woman of
great beauty and personal charm She lived
for bcmo years after the divoice on the
continent , but latterly has icstded nt Mel
bourne , wheio she ekes out a dissipated
existence on an allowance of $1 000 a year ,
mnde by her sister , Countess Dudley.
The death of Edward Langtry In the
Chester lunatic asylum took place when .Mrs
Langtry was entertaining n select paity of
sporting friends nt dinner at the Savoy hotel ,
In celebration of her haul of $200,000
Wednesday In bets on her horse Merman ,
which won the Czarowitch stakes. Since
her husband had been taken to the asylum
the officials there had had no communication
of any sort from Mrs. Langtry. Were it not
that he possessed a small private Income he
would have been treated as a pauper in
mate. By the irony ot fate tills Income now
passes under the marriage settlement to
swell the hoard accumulated by the famous
Jersey Lily. Edward Langtry was a pretty
worthless type , anyhow. He left his young
and beautiful wife to her own devices when
they had only been married a couple of
years. While she was whirling In the
vortex of London society , ho was contentedly
yachting and drinking around the coast. Ho
was as utterly Indifferent to bor as she to
him The only thing that can bo tald In his
favor is ho steadfastly Ignored the oppor
tunity presented him nt the outset of her
career of taking a certain position in society
as the husband of the Jersey Lily. He was
complaisant , but not of the shameless type ,
who would openly benefit by such a position
For some ye-ars back Edward Langtry dis
played the lift ) of dissipation ho had led. Ho
was originally a good looking , gentlemanly
young fellow. When I saw him a few
months ago at Southampton be was bloated
almost beyond recognition. The bridge of his
noho had been , broken by falling when under
the Influence of liquor. He spoke with
amazing freedom about his wife , but with
out a UUCP of feeling. Ho was thoroughly
demoiallzcd at the end of the shiftless llfo
ho had led and had lost even the manners ol
a Bcnitleiran , by mixing so long with tipplers.

LONDON. Oct. 16. The Btltlsh cabinet th's
morning held Its "first autumn mecthiK at the
foreign office. The piomler , Lord Salisbury ,
presided and all the ministers , ' \ltli the ex
ception of L rd James , the chancellor of
tin ? duchy of Lancaster , Viscount Cross , lord
privy seal , and Mr Walter Long , the presi
dent of the Hoard or Agriculture , were In
attendance. The meeting lasted two hours
It is uudei'stoo.l the question of reopening
the Indian mints for the coinage of silver
was not decided , Imt it Is added that the
matter was discussed and w III Miortly form
the subject ot further communl-atlons between -
tween the chancellor of the exchequer , Sli
Michael IIIcks-Bcach , and the United States
In addition to discussing the sliver ques
( Ion , It is understood that the cabinet min
isters were In deliberation upon the Anglo-
FrcMieh situation In West Africa , and In le-
vlowing tlie- Cretan airangemcnts.
In spite of the1 btntcment that the question
of the reopening of the Indian mints foi the
coinage cf sliver w 111 form the subject of
fuithrr communications between the chan
cellor of the exchequer and the United
States iroretaiy commission it is believed
that the British government bab reached the
decision not to enter Into an international
monetaiy conference. Furthei meetings
vvlth the American commissioners will beheld
hold simply because they were previously
arranged , ns cabled last week. In rcgaid to
India , It may be rcgaidcd as certain that the
mints will not be reopened at present , or
until the Indian authorities aio fully pre
paid ! , and though the decision rests vvlth
Downing street , It Is certain tnat the vlev.s ef
Simla will prevail and It Is known that the
Indian authorities oppose the stop.
No moro definite Infoiimiilon can ho ob
tained with regard to the action of the cab
inet , but theio IK every reason to bellcvo
that the government's position IH , as before
stated , that it will not enter Into an Inter
national monetary conference1.
Messages received from members of the
American commission say they have received
nn Information with regard to thu action
taken at the cabinet council today , hut they
hear that a statement will be lesucd next
week to the effect that the government will
make no suggestion to the Hank of England
PH to any alterntlon of its prcnent reserve.
The government cannot In any event do more
than make a icconimendatlon to the bank ,
KO the statement that thu cabinet had decided
that the bank should maintain a full gold
( standard is Inconcct.
Thu puss association sends out the follow
ing seml-ofllclal statement tonight :
"Tho cabinet considered the subject. In
pursuance of the pledges given In Its name
by , A. J. Dalfour , first lord of the treasury ,
and Secretary .Michael Hicks Bench , chan
cellor of the exchequer In the House of Com-
monci , when the resolution favoilng cooperation
tion In securing a stable money parity ex
change between gold and sliver was passed
" 'Iho chancellor of the exchequer and his
colleagues still maintain the position then
taken that the government cannot alter the
gold standard in the United Kingdom. But
they have In thu Interval consulted the In
dlan government with regard to the opening
of the Indian , mints and a reply lias been re
ceived which it Is understood Is htrongly
averse to the proposal. Owing to the dlllleul-
ties In India and the opposition In other quar
tern the cabinet felt they were unable to
give an Immediate undertaking to leopun the
Indian mints , but they apparently arc not
Indisposed to enter Into further negotiations ,
and It is expected that , as Iho outcome of
today'H cabinet meeting , the United States
commltfcloners will bhortly have another In
terview with Sir Michael Hicks-Beach and
that diplomatic communlc-itloiib on the que-H-
tion will be continued with the foreign pow
ers moro Immediately concerned In the re
habilitation of silver"
In spite ot the above , however , It is genei-
ally believed that the government has fully
decided to taj "no" to the proposals pro
scntcd by Mr Wolcott. Mr Stevenson left
London ycnterday for Rome.

DHCItKASi : IN nXl'OHTS.
Erroneous and misleading icports as to
the effects of the new United States tariff
on German Industry continue to appear In
the press. Consul Genetal Goldsihmldt has
just compiled an oliiclal list of German ex
ports , fiom which It appears that there has
been a great decieaso In cxpoits for Iho
quarter ending September SO , largely duo
to the verv great haste In crowding exports
to America , prior to thy Ilngley bill becom
ing a law , hut the decrease In the whole of'
Germany is only -11 per cent and not DC
per rent , as reported by the Kroui Zeltung.
MGoldsohmidt points out that the de-
crcaso is mostly In sugar , evidenced by the
fact that during the thiid quarter of 1806
the sugar exports fiom Germany to the
United States were valued at $ GCG9,9E5 ,
while In the second quarter of 1S07 , antici
pating the passage of the Dingley bill , the
exports of Gentian Migar were neaily douljlti
that amount , namely $ K,9SOC97 ! , but for the
thli ( ' quarter of 1S97 the sugar cxpoits to
the United States wcr < - under $900,000 In
value. The Migar expoits during the fiscal
jear of 1800-97 ending in August amounted
to $30 227,608 , showing an enormous excess
a i compared with normal years.
How teiilllc was the crowding of German
exports in anticipation of the Dingley bill
becoming a law Is shown by the fact that
while dining the second quaitu of 1SOG the
figuieweie only $ it,837IDS : for the Ilorlln
district , during the second quarter of 1897
the amount i cached < 21S59,1C7 for the Berlin
dlstilct alone , compiislng only the northern
half of Geimany , while for the 'whole ' of
Gernain the figures were about $ iil,000,000
against $20,000,000 for the same quarter In ,
1890. In other words , the German pxportern
discounted their tiado In anticipation of
the pap.sagp of the Dingley bill for a whole
qnaitcr In advance. The German press herewith
with a few exceptions Ins not 1.Joked Urn
above facts squarely In the face. I2von the
Cologne Gazette , which ha.s Imnienso Influ
ence In western Gcimany , publishes thin
week statistics claiming to show the disas
trous effects of the Dingley tariff act.
The National Xcltung says"Hveryboay
has known that the Dluglcy tin Iff hill would ,
injure German Industry , ntul the1 question la
what can be done on the ( ! enr n side to
neutralize the Injury. A tailff war such as
the ogrutlaiiH want would only render the
situation more acute "
The Detitscho 55i'ltuii' < , a leading agrarian
organ , after speaking of the continual flow
of money from imope to Ameilca says"It
It should prove that the commercial Inter
course between Europe anil the United ;
Stales continued as at present to nuccbsltato
an outflow of gold to America and a chronlo
stiffening of the Kuiopoan ironey maiket the
Ihiropiaiv countries which this > car will
have to pay about 500000,000 marks for
Ameilcnn c'crc alH In excess of their exports
will bo compelled to organise joint measures
for sclf-defenso. "
Under HH-KO clrcumstanceH It Is not sur
prising that the growing feeling of animosity
agalns * the United States Hints expression
even in the liberal and national papers which
have hlthcito been friendly to America. It
Is significant , for Instance , that Ilerr Max
Schlppcrel , a socialist member of the Holcha-
tag , has declared In behalf of the other forty-
EPven socialists of the houte the willingness
of the boclallHt faction to aid the govern
ment in any measures calculated to bring
about a state of commercial Inteicliungo with
the United States more favorable to Germany
than at present.
