OUR LONDON LETTER [FUOM OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENTS.] LONDON, FRIDAY. THE REAL CABINET-MAKERS. One of the most extraordinary stories in •eolation 18 that the real makers of the new ~*binet are Mrs. Gladstone, her daughter (Mrs. Brew), and Mr. Armistead. Mr. Armistead,itis well known, takes an affec- tionate interest in Mr. Gladstone, and treated him to his southern excursion last winter. ■Moreover, Mr. Armistead was visited by Mr. Mrs. Gladstone soon after the return of n t. -^reniier after seeing the Queen at Osborne on Monday. THE QOEEM AND MR. LABOUCHBRE. Another queer story concerns the alleged refusal of the Queen to accept Mr. Labouchere a member of her Government. Her Majesty is reported to have said, What •J-hat man, who has been abusing me and my *»nrily all these years Not if 1 know it." -piis is not the Queen's English. If her ■Majesty said anything of the sort it would llot be in those words, for she is precise, not to say pedantic, in her use of language. Moreover, her Maiesty could not have refused to accept Mr. l-abouchere, because his name "as never submitted to her. Mr. Gladstone declined to accept the responsibility of placing Mr. Labouchere's name before the Queen. .^hat is his version. It really means that the Premier did not want Mr. Labouchere, and "ould not have him. And the real cause of Mr. Labouchere's exclusion is the article in 1'ruth. MR. LABOUCHERE'S AMBITION. Strange as it may seem, the ambition of the member for Northampton is not to be a Minister of State, but a Privy Councillor. His desire to get into the Cabinet is only the means to an end, for Cabinet Ministers have of necessity to be Privy Councillors. A Minister rises and falls, but once a Privy Councillor is always a Privy Councillor. No one can imagine why Mr. Labouchere should have this violent desire to write Right Honourable in front of his name. He is the last man one would imagine to have an ambi- tion of that sort. Anyhow, present failure has not damped his ardour, and he vows that he will die a Privy Councillor. No one wants Mr. Labouchere to die, and no one wants him to be a Privy Councillor. Therefore, there is general desire that his interesting double svent be postponed. A MARKED EIBDKE. In the scramble after the loaves aud fishes the dignified and marked rebuke adminis- tered to Mr. Gladstone by Sir Lyon Playfair and Mr. Stanfrfeld has escaped notice. These two statesmen, who are each ten years youuger than Mr. Gladstone, declined to accept office ou the ground of their age. The irony of the refusal lies in the hint that if they at seventy-two and seventy-three feel unfit for office, how much more unfit must Mr. Glad- stone be in his eighty-third year ? TEN DISSOLUTION HONOURS. The list of dissolution honours issued this ttiorning is regarded as quite a moderate one, considering the six years' arduous labour Lord Salisbury's followers have undergone. No one will grudge the advancement of Lord Zetland to a marquessate, or of Lords Cran- brook and Willoughby de Kresby to earldoms. All the new peers are notable men, who will adorn the station to which they are called. They are all possessed of brains, dignity, and wealth. Mr. Cubitt is the head of the family who are the doyen of the great building firms. Tbe reputation of Cubitts is unrivalled in bricks and mortar. In the advertisement lJf sales of house property in London one often sees, as a last temptation to purchasers, Cubitt-built." What could be more signincant ? Sir Kainald Knightley's ancestors have sat in Parliament for Northamptonshire for hundreds of years. Of the others, Mr. Mulholland and Mr. Rolls, who has fought so gallantly for a seat in Monmouthshire, are alone unexpected. The five new Privy Councillors are eminently repre- sentative of the ideal in politics. Lord Chief 1 aron Palles and Mr. Staveley Hill for law, Sir Matthew White Ridley for statesman- ship, Mr. Jesse Collinps for patriotism, and Professor Huxley for science are, indeed, good types. Journalism flourishes among the baronets. We all rejoice that Sir Edward Lawson has accepted a baronetcy. As the head of the. Dmly Telegraph and president of the Institute of Journalists he is one every pressman delights to honour. Captain Armstrong, of the Globe, and Sir John J affray, of the Birmingham Post, represent the two wings of Unionist journaiism. tSurpnae is expressed that Sir John Blundell Maple's name should appear among the knights. It is thought that at least a baronetcy should have been his. It is not for lack of apprecia- tion that he figures in the minor honours, for I know that the chiefs of the party regard his services with extraordinary gratitude. MR. KEIR HARDIK. Mr. Keir Hardie's extraordinary garb in Parliament is merely a theatrical display of sartorial get-up. His cloth cap, coster's muffler, and rough clothes are put on for the occasion. When he was at the Trades Union Congress he turned out quite a swell. In his photographs, too, he appears clothed and in his right mind with an ample linen colour, white shirt front, and conventional scarf. Properly attired he is not a bad-looking man, for he has a fine face. "UNDRESS IN THE COMMONS. Mr. Keir Hardie's 11 undress and his cele- brated or rather notorious cloth cap reminds one of a remark made by Mr. Bart some years ago. Major Jones, now M.P. for the Car- marthen Boroughs, asked Mr. Burt why he did not go in for a cap like that affected by Mr. Joseph Cowen, the member for New- castle. The miners' representative aptly and sensibly replied, Mr. Joseph Cowen is a big uan. But I am a small man, and could not tfford to do it." Tug BOARD OF AGRICULTURE. It is now quite evident that we are to see a duffer installed at the Board of Agricul- ture, the Presidency of which has just been vacated by, perhaps, the greatest all-round authority on agricultural matters of any politician in the oountry. Fortunately, before Mr. Chaplin quitted the department he secured the appointment of Mr. Elliot to the permanent secretaryship. Mr. Elliot is not known to the public by name and reputa- tion, as are some of the leading men in the Civil Service. But in official circles in the Civil Service, and amongst those Ministers with whom he has worked, including Mr. Chaplin, Mr. Ritchie, and Mr. Walter Long, he bears the very highest reputation. JVlr. Ritchie, whom he served for some time at the Local Government Board as private seoretary, « declares that there is no place in the entire service which he is not fully qualified to fill. He is, it is said, the coming man, and will completely take the shine out of Sir Algernon West and other well-known departmental organisers. Mr. Elliot took a leading part, I believe, in arranging all details with respect to the Small Holdings Bill and in coaohing up Ministers in the matter. StR E. J. REED AND A TORY PREMIER. I hear that some of the supporters of Sir E. J. Reed and of Gladstonism in your city are very angry at the ungenerous treatment of their representative by the Grand Old Cabinet-maker. They had quite made up their minds that Sir Edward was to go to the Admi- ralty as Secretary to Lord Spencer, and it must be admitted that their belief in this matter was shared by many on the Unionist side. I do not think 1 have ever recorded in these columns a fact in connec- tion with the present member for Car- diff and a Conservative Premier of a quarter of ft century since. Lord Derby in I think, the year 1868, or possibly 1867, was much struck by a paper on shipbuilding read by Mr. Edward Reed before some institution in town, and commented on a good deal by the Tunes. He desired to strengthen the naval side of his Administration, and, aocord- ingly, sent to Mr. Reed offering him the Secretaryship of the Admiralty, with a seat in Parliament, free of all election expenses. It is rather curious to contrast this offer of Lord Derby with that of a great opponent five and twa-l- later.

NASHVILLE, Friday (Reuter).-There is a temporary lull in the hostilities between the miners and the Militia. General Carnes is master of the situation, and the miners have released Colonel Anderson.

He was born in 1843, and in 1878 married Constance, eldest daughter of the late Sir Anthony de Rothschild, Bart. He was educated at Harrow and at Trinity College, Cambridge, and was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in 1870. He was first elected a member for Brecon in 18HO and in 1885 he transferred himself to the southern division of Bedfordshire which is contiguous to his seat at Aston Clinton near Tring. He is a friend of Mr. Gladstone and was made a Junior | Lord of the Treasury in 1885. He owns a good deal of land in South London, and is much in- terested in the welfare of his tenants.

MR. ROLLS' NEW TITLE. The Morning Post announces that Mr. J. A. Rolls, The Hendre, Monmouth. whose elevation to the peerage was announced on Friday, will, it is understood, take the title of Bnron Llangattock of The Hendre. CONGRATULATION BY MONMOUTH TOWN COUNCIL. At a special meeting of the Monmouth Town p Council, held at the Shire-hall on Friday, under the presidency of the mayor (Mr. W. Roneyfield), the following telegram was sent to Mr. Rolls:- To the Right Hon. Lord Llangattock of The Hendre, Fair Oak, Petersfield, Sussex.—The mayor and corporation assembled beg to offer to the Right Hon. Lord Llangattock the hearty con- gratulations of themselves and of all Monmouth upon his elevation." Mr. Rolls, of The Hendre, is (saya the Star) a type of the class of country gentleman who don't become any more distinguished by being peers. His name is one to conjure with round about Monmouth. Recently he inherited a considerable fortune from his relative, Mr. Carnegie, of R ogate. As for Mr. Tyssan-Amherst, he is best known as the ground landlord of Hackney, a circumstance which is supposed to swell his otherwise large rental to the modest tune of £100,000 a year. Mr. Amherst has long been in training for a peerage.
CLYDE SHIPBUILDING TRADE. Great Depression. The Press Association Glasgow correspondent states:-There is great deprossionin the shipbuilding trade, no orders being booked owing to the short ness of freights. Last night hundreds of men in various yards were paid off and this morning hundreds mote will be thrown idle. The depres- sion is also reflected in marine engineering, and it is thought the wages of iron and steel workers will have to be reduced, so that, the cheapness of material may induce companies to place orders.

EFFECTIVE ACTING. Rescue by a Theatrical Dog. Carlo, the handsome black and white Newfound- land dog belonging to Mr. Charles Arnold (whose company, in .1 Hans the Boatman, visits the Theatre Royal, Cardiff, on Monday), was the centre of a crowd of admirers on the Marine Parade at Southend one day last week, when he rescued a little girl from death by drowning. Carlo has been trained by Mr. Arnold to act in one of his plays, in which the dog has to jump into an imaginary sea and rescue one of the charactcrf. He was on the pier when a youngster fell overboard, and was quickly carried out by the tide. Carlo, who had never gone beyond acting before, without any hesitation plunged into the sea, swain to the child, and, taking hold of her in most workmanlike fashion, brought her safely to shore amidst loud cheering.

THE DUKE'S ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. Tho Duke of Manchester, who died on Thursday, was better known as Lord Mandeville, and still betier in some quarters as "Uncle Kim." The history of his marriage was one (if the most romantic in the peerage. His wife was the daughter of a Louisiana gentleman named Ysnaga. This lady nursed him through a serious illness in America, and while so engaged captured the heart or the susceptible young h rd, with the result which is so well known to the readers of peony novelettes. They married, and visited New York, where an odd aurpiise awaited Lord Mandeville in the mansion of the Vauderbilts. He fouud all the articles in his rooms marked with the Montagu crest. This he took to be a delicate compliment, but was much chagrined to lmirn that the Vanderbilts had bought the crest in Eng- land in the way in which the newly-rich occasion- ally buy ancestois. Lady Mandeville was vt ry beautiful, and soon maoe a place for herself in English society. One sister became Lady Lister Kaye, and the two are credited with hav- ing heiped to create the great popularity of the bmio during a noisy musical period in England. It might be remembered that Mrs. Montagu, who is serving twelve months for killing a child, is one of the Manchester family, and may in certain contingencies become Duchess of Manchester.
USHER'S ROAD TO COURT AND SOCIETY. References by the Cambrian." The Cambrian (Swansea), in response to a com- munication from Mr. J. Aeron Thomas, complain- ing of last week's article as a gross and venomous, ibel, published in yesterday's issue a second articlel the nature of which may be gathered from the following extract The article to which we referred last week did not in any way connect Mr. Thomas's came with the advertisements alluded to in Truth, but simply mentioned him in one of Mr. Usher's letters as a re- feree of that gentleman's respectability. We think that a fair perusal of our article would make our intention in this respect perfectly apparent. Moreover, we distinctly said that both Mr. Usher and Mr. Thomas were gentlemen of such position •is to render it.. unfair to prejudge' the matter, and that they would 'no doubt take an early op- portunity of onsweringitin some effective way.' This we had r.o doubt whatever they would do. We hasten unequivocally to withdraw any expres- sion or implication—quite unintentional on our part—which may have been hurtful to Mr. Thomas's or to Mr. Usher's feelings, and we desire frankly to apologise to them if our article has caused them any unpleasantness or annoyance."
FATAL COLLIERY ACCIDENT IN THE RHONDDA. About nine o'clock on Friday morning a collier named David Jones 28 years of age, was killed at the Bodringallt Colliery, Heolfach, Ystrad.

The deceased's brother, Thomas Jones, was working with him at the time, and another man, named David Edwards, stood close by, but both escaped unhurt. An inquest will be held on Monday^ at .n.a 6, 4" Hotel Haolfaeh.
THE IMPRISONMENT OF CARDIFF WOMEN. A Memory. A memorial is t.eing extensively signed in Cardiff for presentation to the Home Seeretary urging 1 lie exercise of her Majesty's prerogative in the case of the woman Elizabeth Wood and Maria tiomiey, who were sentenced a few week's ago to three months' hard labour for having received a small quantity of coal knowing it to be stolen.

With regard to Elizabeth Wood, it is pointed out that she is 65 years of age, and tiiat her medical attendant, has certified that she suffers from fatty degeneration of the heart, and is liable to syncope. In the case of the younger defendant, the memo- rialists state tha she is a married woman wila four children, one being a baby at the breast, and that she has hitherto bore an unblemished cha- racter. The petition is lodged for signature at the shop of Mr. W. H. Davies, Cycle Depot, Queen- street.

WELSH RADICALS AND THE NEW GOVERNMENT. Breathing Threatenings and Slaughter." This week's South Wales Radical, edited by Mr. R. N. Hall, the secretary to the South Wales Liberal Federation, SI\Ys We are, of course, pleased to find thAt the able and conspicuous ser- vices of Mr. T. E. Ellis, M.P., have been acknow- ledged by Mr. Gladstone, and that he has been asked to join the Government. But we must not be jubilant until we know that his selection was not a sop to Cerberus. Welsh Nonconformists cannot afford to accept any bribe to stay their demand for disestablishment. However, we trust Mr. Ellis too well to be able to misjudge him in accepting office. But Mr. Gladstone must know that no number of offices and no honours or titles bestowed on Welshmen will purchase a single hour's delay on the part of Welsh Noncon- formists in pressing home on the Government the urgency of fuliiiling flie solemn pledge the party gave to Wales on the eve of the general election. The pledge WaS distinct, and Welsh Noncon- formists acted upon the strength of it. Hesitation on the part of the Liberal Administration to redeem the pledge would be fatal to any prospect of keeping in office. We will give the new Government a breathing tune, and afterward it will receive a reminder from the people of the Principality that it dare not be deaf to. Still, we trust there may ba no need to give this reminder.'
To-day's Cricket. -0 GLAMORGANSHIRE V. DEVONSHIHE. It was 11.15 this morning before Brain and E. B. Sweet-Escott went iu to resume the Glamorganshire second innings to the bowling of Anscombe and 6haw. The weather was beautifully fine and the wicket was decidedly in favour of the batsmen. Run?, however, came slowly at first, but at 11.30 30 went up. The Devonshire fielding up to this point was decidedly lax, and the home county were credited with three or four runs which they should not have been permitted to get. Brain cut Anscombe beautifully for a 4 and a 3 in the same over, and an overthrow pave the same batsman a trio off iShaw. Brain sent. Shaw's second ball j" lie next over, and the Devonshire score in the first innings was passed. Carter, a swift left hand bowler, t )ok tlte ball from Anscombe and coecked scoring. The batsmen evidently did not relish the change. Carter s first two livers were maidens, but in his tliird Brain got him aw iy neatly for 3, and on the fourth sent him to the boundary, 60 going up at mid-day. Jennings relieved Sbaw, but the change looked like an expensive one. In his first over Brain sent him twice to the boundary, and also got a single, but in the next, after a cut for 4, Jen- nings brought down his bai:s-77 for one wicket. The Glamorganshire captain compiled a faultless 47, which included six 4's (four of which were obtained in succession), four 3'5, and three succeeded, but was unfortunately run out in the tirst over. Clark now joined Sweet-Escott, Anscombe in the meantime having taken back the ball from Caiter. With the score at Jennings beat Sweet-Bscott's defence, the latter having contributed 31 without giving a chauce.His score included two 4's, two 3's, and four 2's. W. Morgan succeeded, and the play became uninteresting. Jell- nings, after the first few balls, improved, and after taking two wickets bad four maiden overs in succession, In his next Clark drove him to the boundary, and drew him to leg for 2, Directiy afterwards a full pitch from Anscombe tookMorgan's stumps—100 for 4 wickets. K W. Jones joined Clark and the score went up a little more rapidly. Shaw relieved Jet.- nings of the ball and in his second over E. W. amidst loud applause, sent him for 5, the biggest bit made during the week. Toller was tried instead of Shaw, but the change produced no effect. 1 Hhortly after one o'clock Clark was given out leg before wicket for the respectable score of 25, in he did not give a chanc. His score included two 4's, three 3's, and two 2's. Tiie Rev. 0, Jones joined" E. W." and An combe's first delivery took his stumps, but. fortunately for him, the umpire had shooted no ball." Directly afterwards he hit Anscombe to the boundary, and drew him to leg for 3. The bowling was getting severely punished by the two Joneses when Jennings took the ball from Toller. The scoring proceeded apace, 4's and 3's being the order of of the day. Twenty were made in two overs and at twenty-five minutes to two the total reached 20J, the announcement being received with cheers. The bowling was repeatedly changed, and two new hands-Copleston and Captain Caunter-were tried, but still the runs came rapidly, both batsmen delighting the spectators with an excellent display of cricket. E. W. Jones scored most, and at the adjournment for lunch had run up 85 not out, the total at that stage being 241. on resuming after- lunch .Carter and fhaw shared the bowling. E. W." soon showed that hia hand had not lost its cunning during the interval, and sent Shaw for 4. The Devonshire fielding showed signs of improve- ment as the day advanced. Marsh, however, missed the liev. 0,. Jones rather badly at point, but in the next over that batsman was easily caught by Cop- leston in deep field. Jones's 46 included one 4. five 3's, and four 2's. Thissen joined E. W. Jones, and at once sent Carter to the boundary In the same over Jones was bowled by Carter for t'6. His batting faultless throughout, and his score included one 6, ten 4's, five 3's, and ten 2's. Thissen was well caught at long-off bytoller,after contributing 5 only,an,t Biggsand S.Sw't-iiscott then got togetlier,arid theformer drew Shaw to leg for 4. Sweet-Escott sent a ball up to Shaw, who took it easily-276 for nine wickets Letsher, the last man in, started by sending Carter to the boun- dary, Biggs sending Shaw for 4 directly afterwards. At 3.45 the 300 went up amidst cheers, and Glamorganshire declared their innings closed. With 256 to get to win Devonshire started their second innings at four o'clock, Marsh and Coplestone going in to face the bowling of Morgan and 15, Sweet-Escott. Eight were scored off Morgan in the first over, but in the second Marsh was bowled by Bweet-Escott-9 for one wicket. Luxtou followed and Devonshire scored rapidly, followed, and Devonshire scoeed rapidly. Briggs took the ball from Morgan, and with 50 up Letcher re-placed Sweet-Eseotf,, bat the change did not disconcert the batsmen in the least, both of, him hitting freely. Clark and Jones then "hued the attack, bu runs came with monotonous regularity, and 70 went up just before five o'clock. Shortly afterwarls Cople- ston was smartly caught at the wicket by Thisen. off Clark. In his innings of 40 he displayed fine style, and did not give a chance. his score in- cluded two 4's and four 3'f. Jennings suc- ceeded, and when a few more runs had been added Luxtou, through a splendid bit of fielding on the part of Brown and the smartness of the wicket-keeper, was run out for 31-83 for three wickets. Anscomlie joined .JeIJlJings, and runs came rapidly. Toller succeeded Jenuings, who was weil-caught by the liev. 0, Jones. With the score at 144, stumps were drawn at 5..30, and i he match thus ended in a draw. Score:- GLAMOKGANSHIJIK. First Innings. Second Innings. J. !i. Brain, b Bhaw 15 b Jennings 47 ii. B.

At the beginning of the present week the cricket championship looked a cerlainty for Notts, but their two matches in the West have comp'etely changed the prospect. The draw in the conflict with Gloucester, ard the overwhelming defeat in- flicted by Somerset, now leave them virtually on even term?, so far as points are concerned, with Surrey. This is, of course, presuming that, the latter county win their match this atter- noon with Gloucester, in regard to which they stand at a great advantage. In this case Surrey and Notts will be equal, and each will have two tirst-ct-tss matches *till to play, which, singularly enough, are with the same counties—Lancashire and Kent. In both these decisive engagements Surrey will have the benefit of playing on their own ground at the Oral, while Notts will piar one match fit Trent Bridge and the the 01 her at Manchester. It is a notewarthy cir- cumstance that the championship, for which the rival counties had to plav sixteen matches, should thus be left to be decided by the last two games in the serie-.

SPORTING CHAT. George Barrett rode in each of the six races a- Portsmouth Park on Friday, winning twice, whiL he was second once, finished third in another events and was twice unplaced. 'y. Mr. W. J. Legh lias been created a peer because he won the Lincoln Handicap and Cambridgeshire with Veracity, and also because he ha.s kept thf Newton Meeting going for many years. He trainp with Teddy Weever, and his chief jockey at one time was Calder. Mornin«t->n Cannon will ride Dunure in the St. Leger if Mr. Houldsworth's colt runs. In the eeent of tiie senior steward not requiring "Morny, the latter wili be seen on the back of La Fleche. lu that case Watts will steer Watercress. J. Woodbury is to have the mount on Mr. James's filly, The Smew, in the St. Leger, whilst Robinson is to have the mount on her stable companion, Mr. Rose's Bonavista.

The Railroad Strike. BUFFALO, Friday (Renter).—Reinforce- ments of troops have arrived here, but other- wise the situation is practically the same as yesterday. A serious demonstration, how- ever, took place this evening, when the strikers began to stone the workmen at the Ohio-street freight-house of the New York Central Railroad. The military admitted they were unable to give proper protection to the non-unionists, and the railway authorities in consequence ordered the switohmeu to abandon work. The soldiers would have been obliged to fire into the crowd to disperse the men on strike, and the officers considered this would be inadvisable. Disturbances took place in other switchyards, and it is evident that an ugly feeling exists between the strikers and their sympathisers and the military. NEW YORK, Saturday (Reuter).-A dis- patch from St. Louis states that the points- men on the railways there are restless and dissatisfied. It is declared that the entire force on the roads running into the city will strike if called up to do so. BUFFALO, Saturday (Dalziel).—A lengthy meeting of the Hailway Firemen's Stokers' Association was held last night, and the fire- men are expeoted to strike before morning. The strike on the New York Central has been stopped by the engagement of new men. The 13th Regiment of Brooklyn had a lively en- gagement with 300 strikers.
