Sped j1 by California associated Press
New York, March 18. The Post
says editerially: Bismarck is not the
man to divide responsibility with any
body. His retirement could not be
far in the ordinary course of nature,
so ho only leaves the young emperor
in undisputed possession, rather
sooner than was expected. With a
majority hostile to the government in
the reichsing, with socialism growing
every day, and making itself felt in
the army, with an inexperienced
young man in command, who con
siders the whole community "a tal
ent" .committed to his keeping, by the
Almighty God, we may fairly "look
forward to a state of things "in Ger

The "World" oa the Germs Sltaatloa .
Special to The astorian.
New York, March 18. The World's
Berlin cable says :"the fact that the news
dispatches are allowed to pass censor
ship to-night with so little delay is only
corroborating evidence that it is now
practically certain that tho eraporer
has accepted Bismarck's resignation.
Until this morning it was thought that
all friction between tho kaiser and
chancellor had been got rid of and
that a modui vicendi for a certain
period at last had been arrived at
but now it is known to be a breach
beyond repair. Tho main causes are
that the kaiser is determined to rulo
more in accrdance with the wishes of
the eople. There is no longer the
slightest ground for belief in the al
leged estrangement between tho cm
peror and the empress Fredrick
who fully regained that influence,
which she was said to have lost Oth
ers who have run counter to Bis
marck's views on internal policy, havo
gained his majesty's ear, which was
in the highest degree disagreeable to
Bismarck, and the composition of tho
new reichstag made it impossiblo for
him to continue to govern. His efforts
to effect an understanding withWin
thorst were abortive. Such attempt
have really been made, despite repeats
ed contradictions, lleports are circu
lated that all the members of Uic min
istry have tendered their resignations.
The belief increases that Count Her
bert will remain. This causes confi
dence on the Bourse to-night Herr von
Bottlicher is named as tho chancellors
successor. World of Hante Finance,
of Berlin, is not in the least anxious
about tho future. Leading bankers
have great confidence in tho stateman
liko qualities of the Kaiser, and be
lieve that he is accepting the resigna
tion of his valuable servant because
the people are crying for another sys
tem of government.
Count Waldersee will scarcely be
transferred from the post of chief gen
eral of staff. The count is about to
proceed to Italy for a change of air.
A Xew Tork Editorial oa BIsmarcl.
Special to The Astorian.
New 1tork. March 18. Tho Press
editorial on tho act of retirement as
well as in his conduct, and his long
public career, claims that Bis
marck is one of the most in
teresting studies in the world's
records. The great man is resigning,
in all probability as a result of the
differences of opinion with the young
emperor, concerning his international
conferences and social reform.

Special to The Astorian.
New York, March 18. Tho Star
editorially says: "Without tho great
chancellor, but observant of his teach
ings, Germany's ruler might go se
renely on his way. But what will
happen to tho young, venturesome
sovereign withont Bismarck's methods
is ono of the most interesting ques
tions of our time. If alone he suc
ceeds in the contest on which he has
entered ho will indeed win tho right

.AaeriSaa History 3
Special to The Astorian.T
Bismabck, N. D., March 18 The
session of the first legislature of the
stato of Dakota, came to an end to
night after 120 days of the bitterest
wrangling ever engaged ui by embryo
statesmen. From the first day's ses
sion until the adjournment to-night
Governor Miller and the members oftthe
legislature have been at loggerheads,
chiefly because tho governor has
played a lone hand and declined to
consult with the legislature regarding
appointments. Every member of tho
legislature, whether Republican or
Democrat, who voted for the lottery
bill, was boycotted by the governor in
his appointments to-day. The sena
tors got even on the list oE appoint
ments made by the governor on Mon
day by making sweeping changes in
the state boards, which were consid
ered jn open session.
To-day several senators had pre
pared speeches full of invective and
when the appointments came up for
confirmation Governor Miller was
roasted to a turn by men of his own
political faith, Swanstown charged
that one of the governor's appointees
had been indicted for bribery at the last
election, and a half dozen others fol
lowed up this with a vigorous denun
ciation of Miller and his appointees.
Finally the senate rejected all ap
pointments ; this rebuke of a republican
governor by a Republican senate out
lines the issue in tho nc'tt campaign
and clearly indicates that not one of
the present officers of the stato can be
nominated, much less elected. An
other failure of crops and the legisla
ture will be ready for any schemo that
flavors of relief.
Many farmers will go without &eed
wheat because they will not ask for it.
Many will go without because they
havo no security to put up. Many
will find tho outside world not as gen
erous. Tho probabilities are that the
legislature of 1891 will be no better
than the'legislaturo of-1890. 'There
may be added to another crop failure
in 1890, a deficiency in the state
treasury of $20,000 and then there will
be another disturbance that cannot be
accurately measured at this time.
It will be prohibition" and buildings
all over the state it has
vacated. Every town and village in
North Dakota will lose something and
some consuming power by this change.
Hundreds ot people . s will leave the
state and" Oicjvwin lake" with them
thousands of dollars. The transition
from bad to good in tho economic
world is expensive at first
Prohibition goes into effect July i.
The anti-lottery people must pray for
good crops and drill their seed deep.
Anything like failure on top of tho
immediate effects of prohibition,
and Louisiana cerastes horridus
will crawl all over North Dakota.

A Foretaste of the Ordeal all 3Ien And
Women Will Have to Pass Thronsli.
Three months from the present lime
the census bureau will have thrown
into the field an army of 45,000 men,
who will sweep the United States
clean of information on pretty nearly
ever' imaginable subject that has a
statistical bearing. The story told by
the reports of the agents of the bureau
will follow the least important indi
vidual in this vast land from the cra
dle to the grave nay, more; from
them you can estimate your chances
in 100 before you were born of being
twins or triplets, and can calcu
late the probabilities that wero in
favor of your turning oat a boy or
girl. They will show that you "had
only two chances in three of snrviving
your firat year of life, and from that
time on they will figure upon your
lease of this sublunary existence," un
til at length the ghoulish compiler of
the gathered figures, withont bowels
of remorse, joyfully tabulates you in
his exhibit of "causes of death."" Not
content with discovering the day and
place of your birth, tho census will in
sist upon knowing from what race you
sprung, what your sex is, if any, and
where your father and mother were
born. Also it will require informa
tion as to whether you aro
married, single or divorced; how high
above the sea level you live, in what
great drainage-basin you dwell, what
tho l6west degree of cold'may be from
which you suffer in the winter, how
hot you find it in the summer when
the thermometer 'touches its top
notch, and how many other people
live with you in your house. As for
the house, you will be compelled, un
der 'penalty of a fine of $100, to say
whether yon own it or not if you do
own it, whether or not there is a mort
gage on it, and, supposing that
there is one, tho reason why you bor
rowed the money on the property.
The census is much interested in your
private affairs, you see, and if yon have
a farm around the house j'ou will have
to tell similar facts about that, even to
tho value of tho cows and the tools in
the bam. All this is merely the begin
ning, however, and all this mass of
information will eventually be con
densed into about twenty-five vol
umes, which will be entitled the "Elev
enth Census of the United States."
