Irish Times Make Bitter Comment m
peach ot Pcraaaaoat
Secretary, Saying It Waa
DUBLIN, Aug. 56. tSpeclal Cablegram to
i ' Th Bee.) Something of a flutter ha been
Caused by the rather cryptlo utterances of
, Sir Antony MacDonnell, permanent under
secretary for Ireland, at a recent banquet
here. What. It is being asked, did Sir An
tony mean when he expressed "his firm
belief thai the next session of Parliament
would see the fruition of many of tboso
hope which the best Irishmen ' had for
years entertained T" Many there are who
think the answer is to be found In the an
nouncement made by ministers in the
'jfP'C" l th opening of Parlla-
"J wouplan for lmprovlnt" and effecting
, jo no mice In the government of Ireland
and introducing: into It means for associ
ating the people 'with the conduct of Irish
It Is known that since . that time In
quirt have bfeen on foot, and It la now
quite certain that an Irish government bill
will be the principal measure before Par
liament In the session of 1907. Unionists
profess u believe that this may be the
first of the "home rule Installment" sys
tem. More than once, however, the prime
minister has stated that no attempt will
be made to psse home rule without first
appealing to the country and that what
the government has In view Is "to give
Ireland a large measure of management In
local affairs" in other words, a develop
ment of the policy which the unionists
have themselves pursued.
Bill Being- Prepared.
There Is good ground for supposing that
the bill Is In an advanced state of prepara-
tjnn, by the responsible heads of the Ir'.ah
office. Nothing Is known about tne char
acter i of the measure, but the Impression
Is that a bold assault will 'be made upon
Mthat known as castle government In
Areiana. At jjumin casue mere are, n
stated, ni fewer than forty-one different
govern) X departments. Some of these
are comvaratively unimportant, but many
of ibem are Important. What la believed
it be in. contemplation Is the co-ordination
Of most of these, 'departments, placing them
Under the control of ' some kind of popularly-elected1
central councth-. Tba nstUn
list leaders themselves do not hesitate to
say that sooner or later they will be' able
. to force large alxed home rule concessions
- out of 'the government. . . ... -. . .
Freeman's Journal thus anticipates the
action of the government: "The current of
events points to the Introduction next ses
t alon of an 'Irish measure at least In the
j direction of home, rule. The larger the
I measure the better, not merely for Ire
land, but for the government. The cabinet
needs only a little courage to settle the
' question. The precedent of South Africa
' may be followed with advantage."
Comment Speech. '
Commenting on Sir Antony MacDonnell'
speech, the Irish Times says: "A good
many people are certain to take Sir An
tony as meaning that next year Is to give
us home rule, or, at least, something so
very near it that the Irish people enn
turn It Into home rule without difficulty
In fact, a sort of Transvaal constitution.
Blr Antony's cryptic pronouncement will
fill Irish unionists with uneasy suspicion,
and If that suspicion should prove to have
been groundless, then there Is all the lees
Justification for the speech. If it should also
fill the nationalists with hopes which are
doomed to be disappointed, then the speech
will have to be condemned as a really
grave error both of taste and Judgment."
There Is considerable alarm over the
possibilities of a potato famine and some
of the farmers fear that the situation will
gradually become In another season as bad
as that nf more than half a oentury ago.
The potato bright Is bad, especially among
th fields and gardens In the counties of
Wexford and Waterford. Along the sea-
, coast more especially has the blight shown
Itself unmistakably In the withered stalks
nd decaying leave, and. In some In
stances, the baneful smell that la given out
by the decaying tubers. Heavy sea fogs

papers and the newspaper ar having all
sorts of trouble with the German emperor.
At the present moment the discontent
with the fashion In' which the kaiser Is
kept Informed of th trend of public opin

coming more and more accentuated. For
Ms knowledge of the press opinion In Eu

office and the ministry of the Interior, in
each ministry there I a special official
whose business it Is to go through the
pnpers and cut out all that he thinks would
Interest the kaiser or that It Is advisable
he should read. If, however, this official,
as Is likely, develop Into a sort of censor,
who decide what the kaiser should or
should not read, his majesty ends by having
a completely false Idea of what la happen
ing In the world. '
fo Good In Office,
Tour correspondent used to watch the
process of the preparation of the kaiser's
mentsl pabulum in the Wllbelmftrase a
matter of a doien years ago. At that time
supervision was entrusted to a Herr On
brlel, one of the assistants of Gehelmrath
Lindau, and later of Lindau's successor,
Gehelmrath Rossler. Tour correspondent
first met Herr Gabriel In Bofla, In Bulgaria,
when he was German vie consul In that
principality, t He was a- young and pushful
German diplomatist of considerable Intelli
gence, Intelligent enough, at least, to give
the kaiser a fair selection from the Euro
pean press. He I now back In the east
as consul In Varna. His successors are
distinctly Inferior, Just a Gehelmrath Ham
matin, the preeent chief of the prep bureau.
Is a far Inferior to hi predecessor,
Gehelmrath Rossler, as the latter was to
Gehelmrath Lindau. Under these circum
stances It I not to be wondered at If the
kaiser occasionally goes off at a tangent.
Hi knowledge of th trend of . European
public opinion Is poisoned at th source.
Recently the German emperor ha given
indication that he to- breaking- through this

said that "his Intention had been mis

Vice President Fairbanks congratulated
the colored people upon the successful In

in which they were engaged could be better

what the negro ha been able to accomplish

few years, but It shows that he appreciates
the value of co-operation. The exposition
Is an admirable object lesson, full of en
ooursgement and Inspiration to the col
ored people. To advance education and ln
dustry is to encourage two of th might
iest factors In th upbuilding of any race.
To prosper to th utmost and mak th
greatest advance In life th colored people
must reach the virtue of sobriety, honesty.
frugality. Industry and fair play. Their
advance had been accomplished against
tremendous obstacles, one of their greatest
difficulties being prejudice.
A broad opportunity, he say, lies before
the colored race. What It will become will
depend on what It does. In the final hnaly-
sis people advance only by virtu of their
own efforts. The future of tb colored rac

Tragedy Creates Scaaatloa. '
Th tragedy created a tremendous sensa
tion here, and -extra edition of th newa
pspers wer sold In th street until mid
night. In th club, where offlolala and
officer gather, the moat Indignation pre
vailed end th prediction was freely mad
that th revolutionaries would pay dearly
for suoh senseless crimes, and no doubt
wa entertained that their only effect would
be to drive tbe government to mor severe
methods of repression.
From information obtained from re vol u- -'
tlonary sources It Is certain that th
crime waa committed by th fighting or
ganisation of th social revolutionists In r-'
teliation for the war wheh th govern
ment ha been waging against them. Sine
M. Stolypln's accession to the premiership,
over 1,000 of their member ljave been ar
rested, too in St. Petersburg atone, and
many of these have been deported.
To fight this crusade th lighting or
ganisation, which Is composed of a wing
knowu u matlnmasts and who believe in
setting up a purely socialistic stat upon
th ruins of th autocracy, have deliber
ately entered upon a duel with the gov
ernment such as that which characterised
th famous fight of th nlhallst In th
1st seventies and which ended In th
ass us! nation of Emperor Alexander II.
Within a single year at that time a little
coterie of nihallsta under the direction of
Jeriaboff made twenty-eight attempts
against the emperor and high officials,
fourteen of which wer successful. At th
head of th present organisation la a
prominent revolutionary, who is considered
to be an organiser equal If not superior,
to Jeriaboff. All the member of th or
ganlsation had du noticethat today' at
tempt on the premier would be made and
want Into hiding.
It ha become known that an attempt
on M. Stolypln wa fustrated ten day ago
by th discovery of th beginning of a
ubterarnean passage from the wall of
the Grandler church adjoining hla resi
dence. The mining of palaces and resi
dences formerly waa a favorite method of
th nihilists, but ha not been used of
