The death of Mr. Alex. Crnig-Scllur, Unionist M,P.
for the Pnrtick divi lion of Lanark, hus caused a va-
cuicy in the imperial house of commons, tho contest
for whioh will be watched with keen anxiety by both
Hotii'! Rulers and tho frienda of Lord Salisbury's gov*
urnmont. At tho last eleotion, in 1880, the deceased
gontlomon boat his Gladstonian opponent by n majority of 80] on a total poll of (1,(180 votes, 2,053 electors
preferring to abstain from coating ballots. The wires
tell us that the Liberals think they enn reverse the
figures of four years ngo, nnd this does not seem unlikely in view of the fact that the late member was a
popular man, no menu parliamentarian, and of lurge
knowledge of public nfl'nira.
The social usages and customs of the world are no
leas numerous and varied than ure the different races
an I imtiiiialitHs, and in not a fow cases aro strangely
ludicrous, un'il one gets u3cd",to thom, at any rnte.
As un Illustration, etiquette requires, in Chinese conversation thut, each should compliment the other and
depreciate himaolf and nil his belongings. It is affirmed that, the following ii not an exaggeration;
"What is your honorable name!" "My insignificant
appellation is Chang." "Where is your magnificent
palace?" "My contemptible hut is at Luehan."
"How many are your illustrious children!" ''My
vile, worthless brats are five." "How is tho health ot
your distinguished spouse?" "My mean-good-for-
nothing old woman is well," Tho salutations of a
people to aomo extent indicate their national character. '"May God strengthen yoiir morning" brings to
the foreground the Arab's faith in destiny. The oriental "May thy shadow never grow loss," shows the
honor placed in obesity. The French "How do yon
carry -yourself?"" indicates the regard for forms. The
Gorman's habit of generalizing ib seen in "How goes
it?" and the Englishman's practical mind in "How ore
Who will succeed Prince Bismarck in the lurge place
he has tilled for so long in the German empire? is a
very natural nnd pertinent question, considering thnt
the "man of blood and iron" hiis already exceeded the
tiireo-sc-re-oiid-ten mark by about five years. There
cm be little doubt that Bismarck's own plan is that his
son, Count Herbert Bismarck who is uow at the hend
of the foreign oflice at Berlin, shall step into his shoes.
As his enemies put it, his wish is to establish a Bismarck dynasty. To this end Count Herbert has of late,
undoubtedly by his father's arrangement, lieen brought
bofore the eyes of the German people ami of Europe
*.- much as possible. But it is no secret that Bismarck
junior doei nok enjoy the confidence of the preaent
emperor, who shows no desire to allow bim to assume
the position of hit principal adviser. Iu thia commotion it is worthy of mention thai the laic Prince, ot
fe ie timo of his lamented death, Emperor Frederick en-
t rtainoda very poor opinion of .the rising Bismarck
scion which fact undoubtedly went for towards embittering the elder Hismark ngninst him. It in snid that
the young German emperor not only hna no particular
liking for Count Herbert who is held partly responsible
for late blunders in the udmiiiistrntinii of foreign affairs,
but that the same aeiitinient is extended towards the
chancellor himself, and while ho may be willing to
submit to the dictation of Bismarck the First for a
time, William II. has no intention of allowing another
Bismarck to share the throne with him.
Rut if Count Herbert is not to succeed his father,
who is? Is the second pertinent inquiry. The answer
given by many in Germany ib Count Von Waldersee,
whom the emperor appointed chief of the general stuff
of the army upon Von Moltke's resignation. This
officer is generally regarded as the representative of
tho Kreiiz/.eitutig party, and in many quarters ho Is
looked upon as the "coming mun." He has beou
nearly forty yeara iu the army, and has always ilia-
played great ability in military otloirs, but until (he
now regime began hu was invariably kept in the rear
when bis services might have proved most useful.
The young emperor, however, has now brought him to
the front, nnd it would not tie surprising if before
long he became chief of political affairs in Germany as
well as ohief of the army. Should this happen tiiu
chuiioes uf trouble in Europe, it is thought, will be
greatly increased. Von Waldersee is n warrior by in-
nliiiutioii as welt as by training, and it is this, probably, that haa won him the emperor's favor. It Is oven
said that ho desires war at once. The emperor's war*
like tendencies, It is woll known, have been kept in
cheek only by Bismarck, and thore is no telling what
may happen when tho restraining hand ia withdrawn
and military ambition gains full sway at court. William IL is» hot-blooded young man, ami with General Von Waldersee an his chief advisor he might
easily be tempted to net Europe in an uproar by precipitating war. For these reasons the frequent reports
of Bismarck's ill-health cause much uneasiness, as he s
looked upon by many ns thu strongest bulwark, under
nil the circumstances, for the preservation of the
peace of Europe,
A Bcuudiil that has resulted in the disruption of a
well-known family in this city, developed yeaterday
morning. The pnrtios implicated, though not promi'
nent in social circles, nro known to a largo number of
people, nnd tho details of the affair whon make public
will cause quite a sensation. We refrain from giving
names at presont The particulars of the unfortunate
affair are as follows: Tlio wifo of a well-known builder
has been suspected of infidelity by her husband for
some time past, but as no substantial proof was at
hand the Iiusband forgot his suspicions for a time and
oven imagined that he had been mistaken, However,
a few days ago his suspicions were again aroused, and
this time he determined to prove the truth or falsity
of thom. The family in question have kept several
hoarders for some mouths past, and one of theso, a
tinsmith, working in the eity, and well-known In uth
letic circles, was the person suspected of having unlawful relations with the wife. On Saturday the husband went home and told Ids wife that he had been
called to Vnucouver, and would lie absent tilt Monday. He then pretended to leave, but instead of
doing so, secreted himself in a closet adjoining the
suspected boarder's room. During the afternoon ho
hud obtained the services of a friend, who hail been
stationed in the cellar to await developments. About
1 o'clock yestorday moruing tho woman was heard to
enter tbu boarder's room, ami tho husband quietly
slipped down stairs and informed hia friend.
The two iiHcended and suddenly broke into
the raom, catching the guilty couplo flagrante
delicto. The Iiusband was armed with a weapon, and
being in a terrible frame of mind, would have done
bodily harm to thu couple had he not been disarmed
by his friend and another member of the household.
Naturally there was a great disturbance and the woman plead for forgiveness and offered to make a complete confession if she would be taken back to her
husband's bosom again. The Imarder left the house iu
hot baste, and sought refuge in more congenial quarters. The woman made n confession of her misdeeds
in writing and signed her name to it. This, together
with the facta of the affair as seen by the witnesses,
were at onco placed , in the hands of a leading legal
firm, and proceedings will immediately lie taken liy
the husband to obtain a legal separation from his unfaithful wife.
The hoarder took thu early train for Vancouver yesterday morning mul left that city later on the dny by
the Bteamor Premier for Seattle, he thinking, no
doubt, thnt snfety in his ease lay only in flight, And
in this supposition he wns very likely correct. The
guilty wife wna quietly told thot sho must seek a home
elsewhere, which alio wna very loath to ilo; bnt tears
and pleadings were unavailing, the outraged husband
would hurbnur her no longer, ami she was finally
forced to leavo the house nnd return to her father's
The celebration of the Chinese Now Year began this
morning the moment the ultimate chime of twelve hud
mug the knell of the year tint had past. "The
heathen Chinee Is peculiar," as Bret Harte says, and
one of his peculiarities Is his predeliction for tho firecracker and the paper bomb. Innumerable quantities
of these light artillery wero exploded this morning,
and all over the oity a continuous crackle could be
hoard, aud the smell of "villainous saltpetre'' begin to
monopolize tho atmosphere of Front street and the
neighborhood of tho awiimp. Chinese lanterns were
lit ami tom-toms, cotestiul hurdy-gurdies, fiddles,
harps uml drums manipulated until there was 110 rest

the haze of smoke like war correspondenth in the
thick of battle, ami ever and anon the "hi yip yeo" of
the rejoicing Mongolians swelled upon the gale. They
a wormed on tho streets and sidewalks, climbed over one
another iu'the narrow stair ways ami passages; they
exchanged presents peculiar aud salutations grotesque;
tho life of llio average cigar was briefer than the snow
flakes on tjie river, and wns almost as plentiful. The
toothsome ginger jnr was broached, and evanescent aa
